Update on this post in which Marvel made the harebrained decision to remove the digital copies from the comics and instead replace them with codes for old comics the purchaser didn't care about.

Marvel will be going back to restoring them:

“We heard the message loud and clear on Digital same issue codes,” Marvel SVP of Sales and Marketing David Gabriel said in a press release. “We heard how folks across the world were using them, relying on them, loving them. We are always looking to do what’s best for fans and the comics industry so we’re pleased to make this program even better. Now, print comics readers will receive a code for the issue they purchased, and also an additional bonus comic giving customers even more value for their purchase."

Wonder how bad the backlash was for them to reverse it this quickly.

I was intrigued by the concept of getting free digital back issues, but the way it worked in practice was so terrible that I longed to go back to the old way. And I never even used the free digital copies.

I imagine a look at the sales data was all the backlash they needed.

I had dropped all the Marvel comics from my pull list, and sent them an e-mail. I will add some of them back now.
