    Default Amazon Offers All-You-Can-Eat Digital Comics For Kids From Marvel And DC

    Amazon has announced Freetime Unlimited, a new subscription service for kids that lets them download books, movies, games and comics from a restricted library, for the Kindle Fire.

    This will also include comic books from Marvel and DC. Expect to see Muppets, Marvel Adventures, Tiny Titans and Scooby Doo...

    The service will cost $2.99 a month for Amazon Prime customers, or $6.99 for a family of subscriptions, the rest of us will have to pay $4.99 per month or $9.99 for the entire family. There's also a free monthg's trial with new Kindle Fires.

    The individual titles are yet to be revealed, but this image should give you a clue.

    Can you eat digital comics? If so, surely this technology could be adapted to feed the starving...

    This is what some publishers are doing on our site. You should check out the free trial and tell us what you think. ( comicbin.net )
