- Dirk Deppey links to Marvel Comics new webcomic effort — Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited as well as a USA Today story on the new site. The bottom line — the site will feature 2,500 comics (nothing more recent than 6 months old though) for $9.99 a month, or $4.99 a month if youâ€™re willing to commit for a year. Aren’t these guys about 4 years late to the subscription model? Still it’ll be interesting to see how it does and who becomes its audience (existing fans or newcomers to Marvel stories).
