Today it was announced that Marvel is relaunching it’s digital comic subscription service, Marvel Unlimited.
Originally released back in 2007, the service nowadays gives comic fans access to over 29,000 Marvel comics in an all-you-can-read subscription model, with prices starting at $10USD per month. They’ve also added a new annual plan coming in at $69USD. If you’re more the type to try before you buy then there’s a 7 day free trial available; or if you’re a Marvel mega fan, the top tier offers exclusive limited edition merch and acccess to Marvel events.
Marvel Unlimited is available as an app on iOS and iPadOS, Android and as a web-reader. The mobile app has completely overhauled with improvements to search, readability and overall user experience: plus the ability to download an unlimited number of comics to your devices. The redesign also makes it possible to follow your favourite writers, characters or series and get notifications when new releases are published.
In addition, Marvel have announced exclusive Infinity series comics will be available on Marvel Unlimited as part of the relaunch.
There are 27 new Infinity comics available right now, with plans for over 100 by the end of this year! A small handful of these include X-Men Unlimited, Captain America, Black Widow, Deadpool, Shang-Chi, Venom and my personal favourite, It’s Jeff- a comic series about the adventures of the adorable landshark who originally appeared as a character in the Deadpool series.
Marvel have said they will add new comics every week, both older classics and new series. Despite this however, there will still be a 3 month delay on any new content being added to the app after release in physical stores. If this doesn’t deter you, or you’re someone who wants to read comics on your phone or tablet no matter what, then this might be worth checking out.
You can find more about the service on the Marvel Unlimited website.
