Marvel’s Digital Comics Unlimited finally made its way to iOS last week which makes it possible to read any of their comics that are at least 6 months old for a monthly subscription. Today, Marvel is announcing something we’re sure a number of both hardcore comic book fans and casual fans can take advantage of.
Marvel is giving away over 700 of its first-issue comics digitally through the company’s browser-based Marvel Digital Comics Shop as well as through its official mobile application, which is currently available on iOS and Android.
Considering comics tend to cost somewhere between $1.99 and $3.99, that’s quite the giveaway as the company is set to lose over $1400 just for one person downloading 700 of the issues. Since all of them will probably spark an interest in possibly buying additional copies of a particular series, Marvel could also easily recoup its losses with very little effort.
If you have trouble downloading these comics through either the Marvel Digital Comics Shop or through their official mobile app, you’ll have until 11PM ET to download as many comics as you can before you’ll be forced to pay for them again.
