Comic Shops To Sell Marvel Digital Subscriptions?

Comic Shops To Sell Marvel Digital Subscriptions?Some will see this as being invited to commit hari kiri, others a way to grab some money in the inevitable move to digital, for others a chance to ground digital comics collecting in the narrative of the comic shop.

I understand that Marvel is offering certain comic stores the opportunity to promote its Digital Comics Unlimited service, which allows readers to pay a subscription for access to a library of Marvel comics, past and six-months-before-the-present-(mostly).

Initially, the system with work in a similar manner to Amazon Associates, where retailers will get kickback payments for online readers of their websites who click through to Marvel's site to subscribe. But it is expected to continue into physical form, with retailers being able to sell such subscriptions to their customers in store at a traditional mark up.
