Marvel Unlimited Gets a Boost with New Exclusive Comics and Upgrades
Marvel has revealed after days of teasing that Marvel Unlimited is getting some updates, a new look, as well as new exclusive comics.
Taking a queue from popular webcomics like Webtoons, Marvel has launched “Infinity Comics“. The new comics are designed for phones and tablets and are exclusive to Marvel Unlimited. New issues will drop every week and features creators like Jonathan Hickman and Skottie Young. Hickman is writing X-Men Unlimited with Young taking on Giant-Size Little Marvels.
This a big focus of Marvel’s with the launch of 27 comics available today and a plan for 100 by the end of the year. While other publishers have partnered with popular platforms, Marvel seems to be taking a different path and keeping things “in house”.
“Infinity Comics” will also be in-universe which opens up a world of possibilites. Will key events happen in these comics? The move echoes Marvel Studios’ move of integrating their big screen theatrical releases with their Disney+ show releases forcing die-hard fans to subscribe and keep up with everything.
Beyond new comics, there’s also updates to the platform.
- Unlimited Downloads – you can now download as many comics as you’d like for off-line reading. The previous limit was 12 issues. You can also now save an entire series with just one tap instead of issue by issue
- Follow Characters, Series, and Creators – It’s now easier to follow what you enjoy
- Loyalty Program – this is now integrated into the app making it easier to earn points by doing tasks liek starting and finishing comics
Marvel Unlimited currently features over 29,000 comics for $9.99 a month or $69 a year. For $99 you get a year subscription and a membership kit and other perks.
