Anyone selling digital codes from the Marvel books? I've been buying books, redeeming the code and then turning around and selling the books because I have zero space for them, just hoping someone out there can help me simplify the process and sell just the codes.

Forgive my ignorance, but since I'm not too computer savvy, I had a few questions about the codes...

Are the codes unique to each comic printed? And does that mean each code can only be used once? Can the digital comic be burned onto a disc? Are the codes good forever--if I buy a current book from today a couple years from now as a back issue, will the code still work then?

I personally don't use the digital codes, but I have to assume that a book with the digital code sticker removed(or where the digital code has been used) would somewhat devalue the book...Anyone know if this the case?...I guess 5 years from now when I am buying back issues from this era, I will have to check every book to see if code sticker is in place?--What are your thoughts?

Yes, Yes, No, No. For the last - all of Marvel's codes have an expiration date printed there in the book.

No idea. I'm guessing it will depend on the buyer? Either way, I don't think many, if any, of these books are going to go up in value.

I see people regularly give out various codes on Twitter on NCBD. You might try there.

All New X-Men already has. Superior Spider-Man already has.

Yup was gonna say the same thing...I mean it's not out of this world to think that some of these issues will be up there with the DC New 52 1st issues, like what's Batman # 1 worth from that now? Like $40 or something...

I've noticed recently a lot of sellers are selling just the codes on ebay. Guess some collectors figure might as well get back some of the cover price or some unscrupulous sellers are removing the codes and selling both.

DANG! Didn't know the #1 was selling for that much. I've got to keep a better eye on my collections value. :)

A lot of those early batman first prints bring some $, quite a few of the new 52 #1s bring a bit, like swamp thing, animal man, cat woman, I know I sold a swampy 1 for 12 or 15...
