Listen up, comics fans – you can now get dozens of Marvel graphic novels on iTunes.
Today, Marvel has entered a bold new era in digital comics. For the first time ever, classic stories—from the first appearance of the Avengers to the “death” of Captain America—will now be available for purchase on Apple’s iBookstore. With an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, Marvel fans across the world can now purchase over 80 graphic novels with fan-favorite characters like Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Wolverine, Spider-Man.
Not only that, but titles like Marvel Zombies, John Carter: World of Mars, Ender’s Game: Battle School, and X-Men: Second Coming also adorn the list of titles available at launch. Marvel says that they will be adding titles every week.
As a gift to fans, they are offering New Avengers Vol. 1: Breakout for free. “Fate has brought them together, and now Captain America wants to make it permanent! Who will take his hand and join the new Avengers?” You’re just going to have to read it to find out.
Marvel already has their own iPad app, but this move puts the longer graphic novels available for the masses through the iBookstore.
