Publisher DC Comics will no longer include digital codes for online versions of their comics when you buy a physical copy from retailers. However, prices on $3.99 books will still remain at that rate for the foreseeable future.
A DC spokesperson recently confirmed to Newsarama that digital codes will no longer be included in select DC Rebirth titles but rather codes will be reserved for select titles. Such titles will be limited to special annuals, event books, and #1’s and will be removed from monthly books.
The offering originally began back in April of 2017 when the price went up for some Rebirth titles. As of now, it is unsure which select books will be included as special. Brian Michael Bendis’ upcoming run of Superman book nor the major event titles Scott Snyder is working on are not mentioned in the statement.
On a separate note, it was noted by industry watchers, that this week’s recent release of DC Nation #0, which has a cover price of 25 cents, was offered online through Comixology for free. Retailers were not informed of the decision.
