Earlier this month, Marvel Comics made some waves when they announced they would be putting out new issues of a few of their titles like Hawkeye: Freefall, Ant-Man, and Ghost-Spider, which began or were originally solicited as physical series, as digital-only releases. Now Marvel has announced some additional new single issues that will only be available digitally, to be released digitally throughout June and the first Wednesday of July.
The following single-issue comics will now only be available digitally from Marvel, before eventually making their print debut in collected editions:
Wednesday, June 3:
AVENGERS OF THE WASTELANDS #5
REVENGE OF THE COSMIC GHOST RIDER #5
2020 FORCE WORKS #3
SCREAM: CURSE OF CARNAGE #6
Wednesday, June 17:
VALKYRIE: JANE FOSTER #10
2020 IRONHEART #2
Wednesday, July 1:
HAWKEYE: FREEFALL #6
MARVEL’S SPIDER-MAN: THE BLACK CAT STRIKES #5
Along with new issues of the previously-released digital titles, new additions to the slate include the final issues of miniseries 2020 Force Works and Revenge of the Cosmic Ghost Rider, and new issues of ongoing series Scream: Curse of Carnage and Valkyrie: Jane Foster.
The news isn’t entirely surprising. As we reported yesterday, Marvel’s digital-only releases appear to have been fairly successful, and they have dozens of other titles that haven’t yet been rescheduled for physical release. Releasing some of those as digital-only titles is an easy way to get the work out for people to read, and avoids flooding comic shops with a ton of new books to order in a short period of time.
Look for these digital-only titles from Marvel next month, and keep an eye out as more books make the jump in the future.
