Piles of comic books that used to be the domain of basement rec rooms, now have a home online, thanks to the launch of Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited.

Created by Marvel Comics, and amassed by Marvel editors, the new internet destination permits access to thousands of titles from Marvel’s historic comic book archives – from the first issues of Amazing Spider-Man and X-Men to the latest mini-series and special issues. At launch, the site is offering more than 2,500 comic books, with 20 new titles joining the roster each week.

The site is accessible at Marvel.com/digitalcomics and through www.marvel.com. Subscription rates start at US$4.99 per month. For the curious among us, however, Marvel has set up a free preview of the site, containing a 250-issue sample.
