Marvel Unlimited Adds Graphic Novels

This week Marvel announced the inclusion of Marvel’s award-winning original graphic novels into the already vast and expansive digital comic library of Marvel Unlimited. Marvel Unlimited and Marvel Unlimited Plus members will now be able to read Marvel’s  Ant-Man: Season One, Daredevil: Season One, Dr. Strange: Season One and more to come throughout the year.

Ant-Man: Season One brings you the origins of the original Avenger, Hank Pym – Ant-Man. In Daredevil: Season One, meet Matt Murdock, one of New York’s finest attorneys by day and swashbuckling crime-fighter Daredevil by night and in Dr. Strange: Season One experience a high-flying, globe-traveling, ghost-battling adventure from the earliest days of Doctor Strange’s training in the mystic arts!

These acclaimed tales are now included with over 15,000 of Marvel’s greatest comics – including the top-selling Age of Ultron event, the star-spanning Guardians of the Galaxy, with most of the first issues from the hugely successful and critically acclaimed All-New Marvel NOW! initiative and more.

Marvel Unlimited members can access some of the most important stories in pop culture history while online, and take twelve digital comics with them on the go via the ground-breaking Marvel Unlimited App (for iPhone®, iPad® & Android™ devices), even when offline!

Accessible through your desktop browser and the Marvel Unlimited mobile app – Marvel Unlimited is a member subscription service that gives members unlimited access to over 15,000 issues of Marvel’s classic and newer titles. More classic and newer issues are added every week – as early as six months after they’re in stores!
