Marvel offers a selection of free comics through its Marvel Unlimited subscription service until May 4, providing a much-needed source of entertainment for the legions of us currently trapped in their homes. The comics are accessible via Marvel Unlimited’s Android or iOS apps, or through its website, without the need to enter payment information or start a trial subscription.

If you want to subscribe and access the 27,000 comic book issues of Marvel Unlimited, the service will cost you $ 9.99 per month.

Marvel is just the latest company to make its products available for free or at a reduced rate due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Audible announced yesterday that it will make the first Harry Potter audiobook free to play for free, and even Candy Crush Saga is offering free unlimited lives this week. We are also bringing together the best time killers as part of our new Home Screen newsletter, which you can subscribe to here.
