Marvel is making digital comics history once more, and proudly announcing that AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #1, from the superstar creative team of Zeb Wells and Joe Madureira, will be polybagged with a code for a free digital copy of this issue on the Marvel Comics app for free. That’s right: for no additional charge to the retailers or consumers, Marvel is making sure that everyone who purchases AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #1 (any cover, including variants) at their local comic shop can get a free digital copy of the issue on the Marvel Comics app.
Of much greater importance in the press release other than the free download -- which, let's be honest, is no big deal since you are holding the physical copy in your hands already -- is the announcement that the comic will be polybagged.
Not just the regular cover, though. It states "any cover, including variants" will be polybagged. Now that may be a first.
And for crazy completist collectors like myself, I always get 2 copies of polybagged books -- one to open and one to remain sealed (in its original format) in that lovely poly coffin.
So now you don't have just the regular issue to worry about, Comiclist has the following issues and variants listed for release on November 9, 2011:
- Avenging Spider-Man #1 (Joe Madureira Regular Cover)
- Avenging Spider-Man #1 (Joe Quesada Variant Cover)
- Avenging Spider-Man #1 (Blank Variant Cover)
- Avenging Spider-Man #1 (Humberto Ramos Variant Cover)
- Avenging Spider-Man #1 (J. Scott Campbell Variant Cover)
This one will have you avenging your wallet.
