Ultimate Spider-Man Comes to MarvelKids Website
Marvel has just announced that it is adding Ultimate Spider-Man adventures to its MarvelKids.com website. In an effort to grow its younger audience and bring them into the Marvel Universe, fans will be able to read a new digital issue each week, starting with Ultimate Spider-Man #1: I Think I’m Paranoid. In addition to the comics, the site offers interactive games and other activities.
The website uses Marvel’s digital Infinite Comics platform, which helps younger fans navigate by showing the panels one by one. The comic takes a minute to load, but once it does, readers simply click on an arrow to advance to the next panel.
Daniele Campbell, VP of Digital Business Development & CRM said: “The addition of the Ultimate Spider-Man comics on MarvelKids.com is the perfect way for kids to experience the Marvel Universe and nurture a joy of reading.”
Young readers will certainly enjoy the free comics for their beloved super hero.
