Marvel Comics Opens Entire Digital Library for Only 99 Cents

In celebration of Comic-Con kicking off in San Diego, Marvel starting today is offering a special all-access pass to its digital library. Comic fans can now gain access to Marvel Unlimited for only $0.99. One-dollar will give you access to over 15,000 digital comics for one month. To take advantage of this deal, go to http://marvel.com/mu and use the promo code SDCC14 when purchasing a monthly subscription. The price will go to $9.99 after your first month is complete.

Marvel Unlimited

iOS users can use the free Marvel Unlimited app to read the digital comics on their iPad or iPhone. The service also works online with most browsers and on select Android devices. Users can save up to 12 comics on their device for offline reading. This means you're not getting 15,000 comics to keep for only $0.99, but you should be able to rip through big events such as the Age of Ultron, depending on how fast you read.

Adaptive Audio and Other Big Changes Coming to Marvel Unlimited iOS App

Marvel Entertainment is making some pretty big changes to its Marvel Unlimited app for iOS devices. The new version of the app will feature smoother panel transitions, adaptive audio and "DVD-style extras," according to CNET. Adaptive audio adds movie-like soundtracks and sound effects to Marvel's digital comics. The background score not only changes from panel to panel, but it also adapts to a reader's speed. Marvel is currently testing the new feature on its current Captain America: The Winter Soldier story arc.

Marvel Smart Soundtrack

Kristin Vincent, Marvel's vice president of digital products, said the smart audio feature will be added to more comics in the future, after they get enough feedback from fans.

"I think we have the best fans in the world, and the most vocal fans in the world. We're always watching the metrics," Vincent explained to CNET. "We look for what people are sharing in the social space. We're very in tune with our fans, or at least try to be, and move where they move."

Review: Marvel Comics App for iPad

I want to read comics again.
 
I was an avid reader of comic books from about the ages of 10-16 years old, right up until I figured out what girls were and how to talk to them.  I still read them after that, just not as much, and I stopped wearing Spider Man T-shirts in public.  Eventually, I just stopped going to the comic shop and buying them at all for some reason.  My iPad was then delivered on April 3rd, and the first app I downloaded was the Marvel Comics app. My love for comic books was immediately rekindled.  


 
Other than a few free issues, each issue will cost you $1.99. There is absolutely no discount for buying multiple issues at a time.  Five hundred plus issues are currently available.
