Marvel Unlimited is a subscription based iOS service that allows you to view 60 years of Marvel’s comics. While not everything is available yet, this app is certainly a step in the right direction. For only $9.99 (US) a month, or $60 for the year, the user gets instant access to a vast amount of Marvel’s back catalogue. These are full runs on classic events. While I only spent a brief amount of time with the app, I must say, I was impressed. First thing I did was tap to browse and found my jaw dropping as I scrolled through each issue of Brubaker’s run on Captain America. The whole thing. Even the Winter Soldier arc. Cue fan-boy squeal.
The app is still in it’s early days and is a little buggy with crashes and whatnot, but it’s what the app symbolizes that is so impressive. This is a great and affordable way for new readers to finally capitalize on the vibrant past the House of Idea’s has to offer. While not released for Android just yet (soon) non-iOS user can use Marvel Unlimited via their web browser. Have fun true believers! The future is now!
