Amazon has announced a new deal with Marvel that will see over 12,000 back-issue comic books available directly from Amazon’s Kindle store.


Amazon acquired the comics download platform Comixology back in 2014, but the new initiative makes the Comixology app pretty much redundant if you use the Kindle Store. Now, you can download single issues—be that Ant Man or Star Wars—straight from Amazon. New issues will appear on its servers the same day as they’re published, making it more attractive than the $10-per-month Marvel Unlimited plan which only allows you to read comics released more than six months ago. The Comixology apps will continue to be run on Android and iOS, but if you use Amazon’s Kindle Store, that might not matter much any more.
