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.

  1. OK, this is such a great idea! I don't even think Marvel can make sense of their own mess, so thank you for helping out the fans.

    Some bad news though - looks like Marvel's new website broke some of your links. Let's also hope that Marvel adds the digital comics subscription to their iPad app. Now, that would be nice!

  2. Thank you, Brain. :)

    I admit I cherry picked some of the links after the new site went up and the ones I picked worked. Looks like I'll have to check all of them now just to make sure. May as well update the links while I'm at it. Thanks for the heads up.

  7. Good Lord am I glad I found this site and it still works. I felt more than a little lost trying to figure out what to read. Links still work even if they've changed the name of the service. Thanks man!
