Marvel Encourages Free Downloading of Ultimate Spider-Man Infinite Comic

Marvel Encourages Free Downloading of Ultimate Spider-Man Infinite Comic

A new Infinite Comic set in the Ultimate Spider-Man Cartoon Universe will be available next week for $1.99, but Marvel is encouraging readers to download it for free this weekend!


In an unprecedented attempt to destroy their own print comics industry, Marvel is offering downloads of Ultimate Spider-Man: Final Exam, the latest in their line of Inifinite Comics offerings. The creative team of Matt Kindt and Ramon Bachs has created this story, which is set in the Marvel Cartoon Universe, and co-stars real life New York City fascist dictator Michael Bloomberg. Presumably, Bloomberg and Spider-Man team up to fight the forces of evil, such as automobiles and 32 ounce sugary beverages.

The Infinite Comics format is a revolutionary new use of the digital comics medium which is designed for a digital screen instead of a page and takes advantage of an interactive device to create a brand new reading experience... or something like that.

For Matt Kindt, the chance to write Spider-Man didn't come without a price. According to Kindt, he was forced to watch multiple episodes of the abysmal Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon in order to make sure he got the tone of the comic right. "I had to do a lot of research! And by research, I mean watching a ton of the Spidey cartoon with my daughter. Which is great," he lied.

The comic will be available for purchase on Marvel's various apps next week, but while New York Comic Con is going on, you can download it for free right now, presumably on the Marvel Comics app or comiXology, as Marvel declined to put any links in the two articles they published about it. Surely, such a bold move will rock the comics industry to its core, as we all know that making innovative digital comics available at a fair price (or in this case free) will put every comic store ever out of business and end the comic book industry as we know it.

Onward into the Digital Age!
