Marvel Comics Makes 2500 Back Issues Available Online
Marvel Comics is joining the digital publishing move by making available over 2500 back issues including “the first appearances of Spider-Man, the X-Men and the Incredible Hulk.” In the future, new issues won’t be available online until six months after the print publication date.
To sell people on the idea of paying for content that they can get on a week by week basis in a newspaper, Marvel is offering a 250 title sampler package for free. The archive is available only online at a subscription price of $59.88 per year or $9.99 per month.
