Marvel ‘Forgets’ Digital Code With $3.99 Superior Foes of Spider-Man #11???

11 Apr

Recently Marvel bumped Superior Foes of Spider-Man to $4 for the #11 issue.  This was fine to me since I love the series and understand how this works.  They are going to milk the remaining fans until it ends.  That’s fine.  I assumed this meant I would now receive a digital code, since Marvel’s normal practice is to provide a ‘free’ digital code with a $4 book.

Well, I picked up my issue this week and noticed NO digital code. I got a digital code for the Daredevil anniversary issue, Secret Avengers, Ghost Rider, all other $4 titles that came out this past week, EXCEPT for Foes.  I checked solicits for April and noticed nothing on any title regarding a bonus digital.

The last title to go from $2.99 to $3.99 mid-stream was Fearless Defenders. Issue 7 was $2.99, then issue 8 was $3.99.  It had a digital code attached to it, though.

What gives here?

Kaare Andrews To Write And Draw Iron Fist!!!

8 Jan

Marvel has tapped terrific artist Kaare Andrews to write an ongoing Iron Fist book called Ironfist: The Living Weapon, which he described as ‘a bloody revenge-fueled martial arts epic’. Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction had a terrific series in the 00s starring Iron Fist, and it makes me excited to see the followup. Marvel’s renewed emphasis on character development and solo titles (see, Moon Knight) may lead to another Hawkeye or Daredevil gem. Between this, the upcoming Black Widow, Loki, Ms. Marvel, etc. , they are throwing everything at the metaphorical wall. Let’s hope some good stuff sticks.

What Kind of Sick Person Would Buy This Wolverine Book?

6 Jun

Clocking in at over 700+ pages, oversized, hardcover that weighs 16 lbs, Wolverine Adamantium Collection just came on the market (from Marvel, of course). If you can’t read it in bed, it’s not a book, folks. If it will mess up your back trying to lift it, it’s not a book, folks. If you can work up a sweat lifting it over your head, it’s not a book, folks.

Buy some trades or something.
