SDCC 2011: Marvel Announces Day and Date Digital Releases

Marvel announced in their “Marvel Digital: What’s Next Panel” at SDCC 2011 that they will be releasing several major comics digitally the same day they are released into comic shops. The first comics to be released like this will be the Amazing Spider-Man series start with issue #666, and all issues under the Spider Island event. Starting this fall new series Uncanny X-Men and Wolverine and the X-Men will also have day an date digital releases.

While the Ultimate Spider-Man series has had day and date digital releases for a while now, the announcement to start releasing much larger titles this way is most likely a response to DC Comics announcement that all 52 comics in the DCU relaunch will have day and date digital released.

SDCC 2011: LEGO gets both the DC and Marvel licenses

This morning, I caught wind that LEGO had gotten the full DC Comics license. The deal will allow LEGO to create figures and playsets based on the characters and properties of DC Comics. The line will launch in January with 13 characters including Joker, Bane, Lex Luthor, Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. The first pieces from the line will be on display at the LEGO booth at SDCC 2011 this weekend along with 3,000 Batman and Green Lantern exclusive figures as part of a promotion for the line.

The Marvel announcement stated that their deal would similarly cover figures and playsets. The license would take effect January 1, 2012 and would start seeing products roll out about May of 2012. The Super Heroes Marvel Collection would focus on the Avengers movie as well as classic Spider-man and X-Men characters. Some of the characters specifically mentioned included Wolverine, Nick Fury, Magneto, Deadpool, Spider-man, Doctor Octopus, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Loki and more. Select items, again, will be on display at SDCC 2011 this weekend.

It looks like both licenses will be brought under LEGO’s new Super Heroes line. LEGO scored a major coup with these two licenses and surely dealt a very strong blow to Hasbro’s up and coming construction block brand, KRE-O. Can KRE-O strike back with Star Wars?
