Indicia

Secret Empire #7 indicia, print (top) and digital (bottom) versions

In magazine and comic publishing, an indicia refers to the piece of text that is traditionally displayed on the first recto page after the cover. It contains technical information about the published material, most notably the official name of the publication, its publication date, copyright information and any disclaimers.

With the introduction of the recap page, indicia are usually present at the bottom of these. One of the most notable difference between a comic's digital and print versions are the indicia. Since the digital version doesn't need to include the technical aspects of the issue's printing, it's limited to displaying information about copyright and disclaimers.
