Android users now have access to comic books from Marvel spanning the publisher's 74-year history.
For $10 a month or $60 a year, readers have unlimited access to back issues from Marvel for viewing on Android devices, which the publisher promises “as soon as six months after they hit stores.”
So while the newest issue of the "Amazing Spider-Man" won't be available on the Marvel Unlimited App, readers can use any Android device to read entire runs from writers such as J. Michael Straczynski (creator of "Babylon 5"), Len Wein (creator of "Wolverine") and even Stan “The Man” Lee himself.
Some reviewers of the iOS version released in March found the Marvel Unlimited App to be "extremely easy and straightforward." Others were disappointed by the limited number of issues that could be stored for offline viewing (six at a time), and the lack of more recent issues.
Android users running 2.3.3 or higher can download the Marvel Unlimited App on the Play Store now.
