Marvel Unlimited Plus Promotion

Rocket

 

Marvel recently announced that they Have a Plan with their new Unlimited Plus promotion; $99.99 nets you a full year of their digital comic subscription service, allowing you to view over 15,000 Marvel back issues on IOS and Android devices, as well as straight from the internet on your PC. In addition to this, the Plus program adds extra incentives to sign up for the year long commitment, chief of which is an exclusive Marvel Legends Rocket Raccoon Variant figure, which looks to be a repaint of the 2013 Marvel Legends Wave 5 Build a Figure Rocket Raccoon.

Also included is a physical Limited Edition Variant issue of Rocket Raccoon #1, a personalized Marvel Unlimited Plus Membership card, invitation to members only events, and 15% off their digital comic shop if you are into current release issues, along with 10% off merchandise at MarvelShop.com

I’m a sucker for offers like these, and there are definitely some back issue series I’d like to check out.. Maybe I’ll subscribe and provide a review of the service and little Rocket in the near future! Once I burn through my backlog of current trade paper backs that is..
