Ten or so days ago Marvel Comics revealed they’d be shutting down their Digital Comics Shop, but fear not as the Marvel Comics app is taking its place. To amp up interest in the app readers can now purchase “Hidden Gem” digital-exclusive comics on the app today. The titles include X-Men Weddings, Hulk vs. Avengers, Spider-Man tales, and more. It seems more and more digital-only or digital-exclusive content is being made available which is a good thing given the limited access we have to stores at this time.
Check out the full selection of Marvel Comics collections below along with descriptions.
X-MEN WEDDINGS – The wedding bells ring for your favorite mutants! One of Marvel’s longest-running couples finally ties the knot when Jean Grey and Cyclops get married. Northstar marries his love Kyle with his whole X-Men family there to celebrate. Storm becomes royalty when she marries the Black Panther, King of Wakanda. And then witness the wedding of Colossus and Kitty Pryde…but will they decide to take the plunge…or will another X-couple marry instead?
HULK VS THE AVENGERS – The Hulk was one of the founding Avengers…but there’s always been fear and mistrust between the Jade Giant and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Collected here are the biggest battles between them, from their first scrap with Namor providing additional muscle for the Hulk to the Avengers looking to put an end to the Immortal Hulk. The Avengers created the Hulkbuster specifically to stop him and even exiled him to a different planet but they always learn the same lesson: you wouldn’t like the Hulk when he’s angry.
