Marvel Comics has announced the launch of an online subscription service, Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited.

Curated by Marvel editors, the digital comic Internet destination allows access to thousands of titles from Marvel's comic book archives, presenting each digital comic in the highest-resolution available and offering viewing options, user-friendly search and recommendation features, and personalized reading list tools.

Accessible by both PC and MAC users through Marvel.com/digitalcomics, Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited will have subscription rates as low as $4.99/month.

For a limited time, Marvel will offer audiences the opportunity to experience Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited with a special free sampling of 250 titles, featuring a mix of classics and current titles.

"We are truly excited to be able to present in one location such an expansive treasure trove of Marvel Comics' favorites to a mass market audience. We wanted to make sure we presented a site that would set the standard in digital comics and offer readers an affordable way to experience our vast archive of content," said Dan Buckley, president, Marvel publishing.

"With Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited, we believe we have built a state-of-the-art online destination that will not only engage comic book readers of all ages, but also serve as the ultimate complement to our primary comic hobby market print business through which all new Marvel Comics monthly titles will continue to be released before their availability in digital format."

At launch, Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited offers more than 2,500 comic books. Each week, Marvel will add at least 20 additional titles to the site that will be chosen based on editors' picks and subscriber requests.
