Important News for Marvel Fans who have bought and redeemed comics digitally, the Marvel Comics App (Operated by Comixology) will be shutting down on June 2nd, 2023. As of May 2nd, the ability to purchase comics will be removed from the Marvel Comics app ahead of its June shutdown date.
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 before May 2nd 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.
iOS users will need to create and link their Marvel Comics App to a Marvel Account to access their Marvel Comics Library in Marvel Unlimited. Marvel Comics app users with a linked Marvel account will then be able to access their library of existing purchases and redemptions in the Marvel Unlimited app. Instructions on how to create and link a Marvel account are available here. (Android users will not need to do the linking because they already have a Marvel account).
Also, Digital redemption codes from Marvel print comics purchased in comic shops will be able to be redeemed in Marvel Unlimited via Marvel.com/redeem starting May 2nd, with no subscription required. Here is a list of key dates for the Marvel app users can use to navigate this change:
- May 2nd: 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 2nd: Digital comics purchases made prior to May 2 will be made available and accessible on the Marvel Unlimited app.
- June 2nd: 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.
After May 2nd, 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.
