Marvel Previews is a monthly 96-page, full color guide to all of Marvel Comics and is your best source for upcoming comics, storylines, collected editions, special inside looks at series and more! The printed edition of Marvel Previews will also continue to be shipped monthly to retailers.
Starting with print comics on-sale November 6th, you will receive a FREE digital copy of the Marvel Previews catalog when you redeem any digital comic redemption code on Marvel.com.

“The goal is to aid comic shops, retailers and fans.” says Marvel’s SVP of Publishing David Gabriel. “By putting information about new print products and collected editions in the hands of our growing digital customer base, we can inform those customers about the great Marvel products available at their local retailers!”
The Marvel Previews catalog will still be offered in print, three months prior to the on-sale dates listed in the catalog. Marvel Previews will not transition to a free download until the month its contents are on sale. Retailers can still enjoy selling the catalog to customers within the usual window.
