Well, here’s a shoe that just dropped. Selected Marvel titles are now available on the comiXology Unlimited platform, their all you can read service. You can see the whole list below.  That leaves DC as the only publisher not participating in the service, which is more of a sampler than the Netflix of Comics that no one has been able to launch, probably because its not economically feasible.

Marvel has it’s own Marvel Unlimited service which, for $9.99 gets you just about everything you want to read.  Comixology’s service is $5.99 a month but you get a free one month trial.

The comics are also available through Kindle Unlimited, and Prime Reading, whic h you get free with your Amazon Prime membership. The offerings are big on Volume #1s so you can get drawn into the whole saga.

Given Marvel’s current sales slump, being on as many platforms as possible can only be seen as a good thing.

“We are thrilled to have part of Marvel’s vast library of Super Heroes join comiXology Unlimited, Kindle Unlimited, and Prime Reading,” said comiXology CEO and Co-Founder David Steinberger in a statement. “With the addition of Marvel Comics this is a great opportunity to discover and explore the best that comics have to offer. And for those just starting out reading Marvel Comics, Kindle Unlimited and Prime Reading are great places to begin.”

  1. I already have Marvel Unlimited. I would suggest forgoing this, and subscribing to MU. Hoopla is a better service than ComiXology Unlimited for everything else, including DC. Just sayin…

    Hoopla’s graphic novel selection may be great but the iOS app has been annoying to use on a tablet. It requires nearly full-width swipes for page turns vs simple taps via comiXology and Marvel Unlimited. Despite being a “free” source of comics, I find the interface a major deterrent.

  3. @Rui, I feel your pain. However, it is a free service provided by my local library. The cost to effort ratio is pretty good. I just finished Brubakers Fade Out and am currently enjoying Ruckas Lazarus. Every volume; not just the first. Don’t get me wrong, I still buy from ComiXology, but I don’t like the value of the subscription service.
