Comixology are changing the game with new Unlimited service

May 24th, 2016 by Marc Comments


ComiXology have officially raised the bar, as they have announced the arrival of ComiXology Unlimited. It’s the brand new service which is nothing but win-win for the reader, as it gives its subscribers “endless access” to literally thousands of digital comics, graphic novels, manga and more on the go.

But at what cost, we hear you ask? Well, it can be all yours for a ridiculously good $5.99 a month.

The service will be available via any device, either on the web or using the handy app. The service will give you access to titles from the likes of Image, Dark Horse, IDW, BOOM! Studios, Oni Press, Archie, Valiant, Fantagraphics and so much more.

If you’re not sold yet, what if we told you that titles available included the likes of The Walking Dead, Hellboy, the fantastic Saga, Attack on Titan, Transformers and Locke & Key? Yeah, now you’re interested.

Talking to Comic Book Resources, ComiXology CEO David Steinberger said of the offer “We really wanted to say, ‘It’s silly for you not to jump on board.’ We wanted to get that price to be super, super-exciting, very competitive, free trial – jump in there. We’ve tried to find metaphors; obviously, right, when you do the PR, you want to do that. One of the best metaphors is, we figured out, here in New York, at least, a venti Frappuccino is $6 – a little over $6!”

Described by Steinberger as the “Netflix for comics,” ComiXology Unlimited is available now in the United States., and you can sign up here for a free 30-day trial. It will expand to other countries in the near future.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
