Marvel Entertainment’s landmark app launches with over 500 of Marvel’s greatest comic books, from classic stories to modern tales, featuring Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Hulk, Thor and more of the world’s most popular Super Heroes. The Marvel Comics app brings the world of Marvel to iPad owners with each comic presented at incredibly high resolution on iPad’s full colour screen, a user-friendly search engine and innovative viewing options.
Fans are granted access to Marvel’s rich library of comics, with launch titles ranging from the first appearances of characters such as Spider-Man and the X-Men to modern classics like the debut of Red Hulk, Jonathan Hickman’s acclaimed Fantastic Four run, Joss Whedon & John Cassaday’s Astonishing X-Men and lots more.
Marvel worked with ComiXology to create the app for new readers, with an option to preview two pages from a comic before purchasing and a cutting-edge recommendation engine to help fans find their favourite comics. The app features a comic shop locator, allowing users to source a local retailer.
To enhance the mobile reading experience on the iPad even more, the Marvel Comics App features multiple viewing modes, taking readers panel-by-panel through the comic book in a smooth, action-packed progression using just the swipe of a finger.
The Marvel Comics App for iPad is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore. Individual comics are priced at $1.99 each with new content arriving every week.
