We’ve lost track of just where Marvel is in their rolling reboot. We’ve had Marvel Now, All New Marvel Now and soon, no doubt, Marvel Now: Electric Bugaloo. There’s also All New Marvel Now .Now “Jumping on” issues. Hey anything to make it comprehensible. But anyway, the new All New Marvel Now rollout will include a bunch of free digital COLLECTIONS. That’s right. Marvel has been putting complimentary digital download codes with many books and single copies, but now you can get the entire first collection of a book to catch up when you Jump On. Not the entire run, but the first collection of books, still a pretty sweet deal.

In other words, Marvel is making jumping on as easy as jumping off a log.

“The .NOW issues provide a great first issue entry point for new and existing readers alike,” said David Gabriel, SVP of Print & Digital Publishing, Marvel Entertainment in a statement. “But by offering free digital collections with print issues, we’re offering fans who may not have experienced these exciting series a great chance to jump into the full story all at once, taking advantage of both the print and digital formats in a manner no other publisher has attempted!”
Here are the titles with bonus digital collections:
·         Avengers #24.NOW – On-Sale 12/24/13
·         Savage Wolverine #14.NOW – On-Sale 1/08/14
·         All-New X-Men #22.NOW – On-Sale 1/22/14
·         Guardians of the Galaxy #11.NOW – On-Sale 1/29/14
·         Captain America #16.NOW – On-Sale 02/05/14
·         Thor: God of Thunder #19.NOW – On-Sale 02/12/14
·         Nova #13.NOW – On-Sale 02/19/14
·         Iron Man #23.NOW – On-Sale 03/19/14
·         Uncanny X-Men #19.NOW – On-Sale 03/19/14
·         Uncanny Avengers #18.NOW – On-Sale 3/26/14

Seems like a pretty good deal, and wed expect the secondary market to be pretty busy on these as well.


  1. Is this really a reboot? I just don’t understand the concept behind what Marvel’s doing here. I’ve ready some NOW books and they seem like the old books. Am I missing something?

  2. Unless the digital copies also come with the bonus collected editions. This just makes me feel screwed as a digital buyer, since I have no desire or time to go out of my way to a comic shop and buy a print version.

  3. Hi.
    When, for example, All-New X-Men 22 is released in print, will its digital code cover the entirety of the previous 22 issues? Or is it just the first five or something?
    Please help me understand. I’m thinking of getting All-New X-Men on digital, but if I can wait a month & get ’em free, I might do that.
    Thanks :-)

  4. The free first collection of the series will be just several issues. An example a Marvel spokesman provided for a CBR article on the promotion was AVENGERS #1-#6.


  5. @JP – not sure how you’re getting screwed. You can buy the print versions of these just this one time and for the same cost of buying only the digital version of one of these titles you’ll get 1) the print version of that issue, 2) the digital version of that issue, and 3) a digital collection of the first story arc.

  6. Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Spending some time and actual effort
    to create a top notch article… but what can I say…
    I hesitate a whole lot and don’t seem to get anything done.

  7. Right here is the right blog for everyone who really wants to find out about this topic.
    You realize a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic that’s been written about for ages.
    Great stuff, just great!
