Guys, it’s cool to read comic books now. Hell, opening one up in public will not result in an instant wedgie or having to earn the trust of your local rugby team by allowing them to copy off of your computer studies test sheet. Thing is, comics can be expensive. And while I’ll always prefer print over digital comics, that online option is a great way of encouraging new readers to jump in. And now you can do just that, for cheap.
But you’re going to need to move your ass. For around R10 or 75 US of A cents, you can get a full month of Marvel on your tablet. That’s very little money for access to the home of comics such as the Amazing Spider-Man, the Uncanny X-Men and the Fantastic “Cough screw you FOX Cough!” Four.
A subscription to Marvel Unlimited usually runs around $9.99 per month, but enter MARVEL75 at checkout and you’ll get the discount. As I said, a great way to get into comics. You can read online or offline, and the digital archive is plenty vast and decently updated.
There’s a ton of great sagas to read through. Like the first Secret Wars, the recent relaunch of Marvel Now comics which injected new life into the brand and the absolutely epic Infinity series. Throw in events such as Civil War and Secret Invasion, and you’re ready for whatever the next crop of Marvel movies throws at you.
Pretty neat deal, I reckon.
