Marvel Entertainment announced that the Comixology-sponsored app Marvel Comics will be ceasing operations in the summer and that operations will be moved to their Unlimited app.
“Important news for Marvel Comics fans who purchase and redeem comic books digitally. The Marvel Comics app (operated by Comixology) will be shutting down on June 2, 2023. Starting May 2, the ability to purchase comics will be removed from the Marvel Comics app ahead of its June shut down date,” Marvel said on their website.
They continued, “While we are disappointed fans will no longer be able to use the app starting in June, we know many readers have built up incredible digital libraries of Marvel comics on the app. To support our loyal fans, we will be making digital comics purchases made prior to May 2 on the Marvel Comics app (operated by Comixology) available and accessible on the Marvel Unlimited app. No Marvel Unlimited subscription purchase will be required to access your previous Marvel Comics app digital comic library.”
The comic book company also released a timeline for fans:
- May 2: Marvel comics will no longer be able to be purchased on the Marvel Comics app (digital redemption codes may be redeemed in Marvel Unlimited via Marvel.com/redeem).
- May 2: Digital comics purchases made prior to May 2 will be made available and accessible on the Marvel Unlimited app.
- June 2: The Marvel Comics app will be shut down. You must link your Marvel Comics app to a Marvel account before this date to have digital comic libraries available and accessible on the Marvel Unlimited app.
They added, “After May 2, 2023, users will be able to purchase Marvel Comics through Amazon as well as select Marvel digital comic graphic novels will be available for purchase through Google Play Books, Apple iBooks, Nook as well as select digital library services. We are working on more options for digital comics readers and more information will be available in the coming months.”
Marvel notes that the Unlimited app cost is $5 a month for the first year.
