Now Marvel Comics Adds Digital-Only TPBs Too

Yesterday, Bleeding Cool reported on Marvel Comics making a number of their incomplete mini-series, or series that were coming to an end, digital-only. They will only see print in eventual collections, months away, if that. These are books that retailers were planning to sell, now withdrawn from print, and leaving print readers with incomplete series in their collections. This was announced, even as Steve Geppi and Ross Richie were talking about sales being up, coming out of shutdown. Marvel has now added to these with digital-only collections of other comic books. The following titles are available from Marvel, but only digitally. They will not be offered in print.
