Intro, in short

Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited has a lot of comics. Thousands spanning several decades. Some of these comics together form a 'complete' work greater than the sum of its individual parts. Some defining the work of the creator(s) involved, some setting the standard for comics for years to come...and some that are just plain worth reading regardless of their time.

The MDCU Omnibus is my attempt at gathering some of Marvel's greatest achievements (and whatever other oddities I can find) and making them as easily accessible as possible. Service membership is required to actually view them, of course, but I think the $5-$10/month is a small price to pay. Enjoy.
