Geoff Johns Comes to Marvel Unlimited in April, Plus: Classic Machine Man, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man 2099

Marvel has announced the latest classic comics set to hit the Marvel Unlimited binge-reading app this month, and, yeah, the time-delayed new comics too, if you care about that sort of thing. The biggest addition to the collection of more than 20,000 digital comics for April is the entire first volume of Machine Man, featuring work by Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Marv Wolfman, and more! That series launched in 1978 and ran for 19 issues, into 1980. All 19 of those comics will be availble to read for subscribers to Marvel Unlimited this month.

Joining Machine Man are issues #23-37 of the second volume of Doctor Strange, spanning from 1977 to 1979 and including work by Jim Starlin, Al Milgrom, Roger Stern, Tom Sutton, Gene Colan, and others. Marvel is also adding some 1995 issues of Spider-Man 2099 #34-38, by Peter David, Andrew Wildman, and more, along with Geoff “Jeff” Johns and Ivan Reis‘ 2002 4-issue Vision mini-series.

Check out the press release below for the full listing of modern comics planned to hit the service this month, though Marvel often adds additional classic comics throughout the month, and if we happen to notice, we’ll let you know about those too.

X-MEN: RED #9

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
