Marvel might be physically at San Diego Comic-Con, but it doesn’t mean the comic publisher has forgotten about the folks who can’t make the show. For the next week, Marvel is allowing folks to purchase a month’s worth of access to their Marvel Unlimited digital service for 99 cents.
Use the promo code SDCC14 and you’ll get a month’s access to 15,000 comics for less than a dollar.
The comics can be viewed on PC and Mac, as well as iOS and Android devices through a Marvel Unlimited app. Readers can download up to 12 comics at a time for offline reading. Newer comics tend to be added to the Unlimited archive after 6 months, so you’re not getting the latest releases. But for a dollar, there’s more than enough to read.
Typically, a subscription to the Marvel Unlimited service costs $69 a year or $9.99 a month.
Humble Bundle actually has two comic packages running today. Earlier we posted about the IDW/Transformers one, but Skybound is also in on the action with a package packed with comics from The Walking Dead and a few of their other series like Ghosted and Invincible.
Humble Bundle works by having individuals pledge whatever amount they want, split between various things. In this case it’s Humble Bundle, Skybound, and three different charities, Penny Harvest, Rett Syndrome Research Trust, and Indie Cade Foundation. You can give it all to one, just a few, or split among them all.
This has some interesting tiers too. If you pledge $40, you get a t-shirt, and volume 20 of The Walking Dead. For $65, you get a limited edition Negan figure.
This is a great way to get all kinds of cool stuff, and support a charity!
