CBM CLASSIFIEDS: Marvel Comics Digital Codes; AVENGERS VS. X-MEN And More

As Marvel continues to charge $3.99 for twenty page comic books with digital codes that people don't want, a new craze is sweeping eBay as people sell them for bargain prices! Well, I'm getting in on that by offering a HUGE selection of digital codes for considerably cheaper than the App stores...

It was Bleeding Cool who first came across this new craze. Unlike DC (who "draw the line" at $2.99) Marvel are still selling their books for $3.99, despite the fact that they often don't feature any additional pages. They do however come with a digital code. I personally have no desire to upload my pull list to either my laptop or iPhone so am left with countless unused codes which I am now selling. Is it illegal? Absolutely not. When you buy the comic books, you buy the codes WITH them and this is no different to selling the hard copies.

I pick up pretty much every major Marvel title and have already uploaded many of them to eBay (you can find those currently listed by clicking HERE). However, I am now offering you guys the chance to buy them directly from me via PayPal for only £0.75/$1.19 - that saves us both unnecessary fees. You can either get in touch HERE or in the comment section below with any titles you're interested in. While I do now have some gaps in my collection from those already sold via my Twitter account or eBay, I still have plenty to offer including Amazing Spider-Man, Avengers, Captain America, Invincible Iron Man, The Mighty Thor, Uncanny X-Men, Wolverine and the X-Men and many more besides. Remember that they have a one year expiration date on them so you will have to select titles released in the past twelve months. First come, first served!

I buy digital only and spend around $80 a month on comics, but I just can't bring myself to spend $3.99 on a single 20-page issue. This whole codes on eBay is speaking my language.

Marvel, DC, comixology, trying to rip off fans by charging them $4 for a digital file with no resale value:

Selling Thor: God of Thunder #1 digital code for anyone interested. Asking $1.25 or you can bid on the ebay listing, which starts at $.85.

What if they have to cancel a bunch of comics?

I remember complaining back in the 90's when comics went up to $1.25. To me $3.99 for 20 pages is a rip off. Specially back when we would get a 40 to 50 page comic for $2.99 back then. Man in like 5 years comics will be $10.00 for 10 pages.

Hmmm censoring commies strike again

But again the terms are access to the digital versions require the purchase of a physical comic. I imagine its a matter of time before ebay and such shut such sales down.
