Celebrate the New Year with the biggest change to the world of digital comics in 2012! Beginning with January’s ULTIMATE COMICS SPIDER-MAN #6, all Ultimate Comics Universe titles will be polybagged with a code for a free digital copy on the Marvel Comics app for iOS and Android devices at no extra cost! In February, these codes (redeemable for the same print issue as purchased) expand to the rest of the Ultimate Comics Universe, as new arcs begin with ULTIMATE COMICS X-MEN #7 and ULTIMATE COMICS ULTIMATES #7.

“The groundbreaking stories told each month in the Ultimate Comics Universe are some of the best comics being published today,” said David Gabriel, Senior Vice-President of Sales, Marvel Entertainment. “Looking at the tremendous response to our digital copy code offer with AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #1, it’s clear that this is something fans want to see more of and we’re delivering it on a scale never seen before, with no extra cost to retailers or fans—and historic benefits for our retail partners.”

The Ultimate Comics line made history in 2010 with the first line of comics to be offered digitally on the same day print editions hit stores, beginning with ULTIMATE COMICS THOR #1. With its inception in 2000, the Ultimate Comics Universe reimagined the world’s most popular super heroes, including Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Wolverine and more, for a new generation. It continues to be one of the most acclaimed and best-selling comics initiatives of the last decade, with the 2011 introduction of an all-new Spider-Man heralded as one of the most important moves in pop culture history.

In 2012, no fan can miss ULTIMATE COMICS SPIDER-MAN, ULTIMATE COMICS ULTIMATES and ULTIMATE COMICS X-MEN, as they begin red-hot new storylines and each issue includes a code for a free digital copy on the Marvel Comics app.

I love getting the digital version along with the print copy, especially on android! Now if there was just a way to get digital copies for all my back issues.

wish marvel would sell their tbp/graphic novels in this way, instead of the individual issues.

Frankly I would prefer your comics were cheaper in print and in digital instead of having a digital copy of a comic I already have.
