The Ultimate Comics line made history in 2010 with the first line of comics to be offered digitally on the same day print editions hit stores, beginning with Ultimate Comics Thor #1.
If you read that and thought, “Wait, what?” then join the club – not least of all because the Ultimate line actually went line-wide day-and-date in February of this year with the “Death of Spider-Man” storyline in Ultimate Spider-Man and Ultimate Avengers vs. New Ultimates. Look, there was even a press release about that, too.
The real “first line of comics to be offered digitally on the same day [as] print editions” is, of course, Archie Comics, which went day-and-date in January this year. So, why did Marvel’s PR include this completely untrue piece of information, especially when it’s so easily disproven?
