Marvel Unlimited Holiday Offer: First Month Free


I was all set to start this post by mentioning how digital comics can’t be stocking stuffers since they don’t have physical form. Then I remembered how when I was a kid, Santa actually used to leave me real comics in my stocking and I’d be aghast on Christmas morning at the way they were folded up to fit in there.

All of that was a long-winded way of getting to my real point, which is that you can leave yourself or the comic book fan in your life a stocking stuffer of the virtual kind right now thanks to the holiday offer from Marvel Unlimited. Anyone who signs up for a new subscription to Marvel’s digital comics service now through January 10 will get one month free. All you have to do is use the code “COMICS16” when you go to checkout, and you or the lucky person getting the subscription is good to go.

But wait, there’s more (always wanted to say that)! The offer also includes a Digital Comics Starter Pack for no extra charge, one that includes the following digital issues:

  • All-New, All-Different Point One #1
  • Avengers #0
  • Captain America: Sam Wilson #1
  • Doctor Strange #1
  • The Astonishing Ant-Man #1
  • The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #1

That’s a value of over $20 thrown in for free. Subscribers will get their codes for the Digital Comics Starter Pack by email on or around January 11.

The library of comics available through Marvel Unlimited is always growing and changing, but it currently includes more than 17,000 issues, making it a handy reference source for comics and superhero site editors like yours truly. If you’ve ever considered subscribing, now’s a great time, but be sure to get in on the offer before it expires after the holidays.
