Comixology, owned by Amazon, has announced it is shutting down its Marvel Comics App.
The service sent the following e-mail stating Marvel Comics purchases will be moving to the Marvel Unlimited App.
Here is the info:
Marvel Comics app (operated by Comixology) Purchases Are Moving to Marvel Unlimited
The Marvel Comics app (operated by Comixology) will be shutting down on June 2, 2023. Starting May 2nd, the ability to purchase comics will be removed from the Marvel Comics app ahead of its June shut down date.
While we are disappointed fans will no longer be able to use the app starting in June, we know many readers have built up incredible digital libraries of Marvel comics on the app. To support you, we will be making digital comics purchases made prior to May 2 on the Marvel Comics app available and accessible on the Marvel Unlimited app. No Marvel Unlimited subscription purchase will be required to access your previous Marvel Comics app digital comic library.
You are receiving this email as you have previously made a purchase or redeemed a digital copy for a title accessible in the Marvel Comics App.
Please note the key dates for Marvel Comics App users to navigate this change:
- May 2: Marvel comics will no longer be able to be purchased on the Marvel Comics app (digital redemption codes may be redeemed in Marvel Unlimited via Marvel.com/redeem)
- May 2: Digital comics purchases made prior to May 2 will be made available and accessible on the Marvel Unlimited app
- June 2: The Marvel Comics app will be shut down.
The e-mail says further info is available at Marvel.com with the site adding:
iOS users will need to create and link your Marvel Comics app to a Marvel account to be able to access their Marvel Comics library in Marvel Unlimited. Marvel Comics app users with a linked Marvel account will then be able to access their library of existing purchases and redemptions in the Marvel Unlimited app. Instructions on how to create and link a Marvel account are available here. (Android users will not need to do the linking because they already have a Marvel account).
And for readers who want to read even more Marvel comics, Marvel Unlimited is a one-stop destination that offers paid subscription plans for access to over 30,000 comics spanning the entire Marvel Universe with new issues of Marvel’s must-read series released weekly, 3 months or sooner after they hit shelves. Single digital comic book purchases are not available on the Marvel Unlimited app.
Digital redemption codes from Marvel print comics purchased in comic shops will also be able to be redeemed in Marvel Unlimited via Marvel.com/redeem starting May 2, no subscription required. To find your local comic shop and purchase Marvel print comics with digital codes, visit comicshoplocator.com.

After May 2, 2023, users will be able to purchase Marvel Comics through Amazon as well as select Marvel digital comic graphic novels will be available for purchase through Google Play Books, Apple iBooks, Nook as well as select digital library services. We are working on more options for digital comics readers and more information will be available in the coming months.
For additional comics, users can sign up a subscription for unlimited access to Marvel Unlimited, with over 30,000 comics available to read, for only $5 per month for the first 12 months.

A subscription will not be required to access existing digital comic libraries from the Marvel Comics app that have migrated to Marvel Unlimited.
