Marvel Comics and GetGlue

GetGlue is an service that allows you to check in to show what form of entertainment you’re partaking in.  If you’re playing a video game, watching a movie or television show, some sports, stuff like that.  For a lot of check ins you receive “stickers” to show what you’ve done. 

GetGlue is a leading social network for entertainment. Users check-in and share what they are watching, listening to and reading with friends; get fresh recommendations, exclusive stickers, discounts and other rewards from GetGlue partners.

Marvel has been taking advantage of the service, allowing fans to check in and show the comics they’re reading.  What’s even cooler is once you reach certain levels, you can get printed versions of your stickers, creating a very neat collectible for the geek set.  Check out my first batch of stickers below which arrived in the mail this week.

Marvel also dominates the trends in the book category.  As of this article, the company has 8 out of 10 spots, including the top 3.
