Marvel Comics Makes ANOTHER Covid-19 Pandemic Misstep By Short-Changing Readers By Switching To Digital Only For Some Titles Continuing In June 2020 and July 2020!

This in addition to a similar announcement for several May 2020 titles that will have titles digitally only (not “first”) and only be available in a physical form in a collected edition.

DC Comics has also followed Marvel’s lead here, but with only a few titles.

Marvel reports.

      Marvel Comics Reveals Additional Release Dates for New Digital-First Titles

      Complementing Marvel Comics’ in-store releases, Marvel will release digital-first titles like ‘Revenge of the Cosmic Ghost Rider,’ ‘Valkyrie: Jane Foster,’ ‘Scream: Curse of Carnage,’ and more for fans to escape into the Marvel Universe!

      As True Believers celebrate the return of new Marvel comics in stores today, fans everywhere will be able to continue some of their favorite Marvel series digitally starting next week! These select digital-first issues join those announced earlier this month for fans to enjoy as everyone continues to practice social distancing.

      New issues for series like REVENGE OF THE COSMIC GHOST RIDER, VALKYRIE: JANE FOSTER, SCREAM: CURSE OF CARNAGE, and more will be made available digitally for readers to access from their own homes. These comics will only be available as digital comics for the time being; however, they will be available in print collections later this year for fans looking to add them to their Marvel bookshelves. More information about these comics will be shared at a later date.

      To jump into these new issues or start from the very beginning, download the Marvel Comics app for iOS or Android or visit comiXology!
