New York, NY – August 10th, 2015 – Marvel is expanding the ways its younger fans can dive into the Marvel Universe with its all-new and kid-friendly digital comic book section; all part of the expanded MarvelKids.com. Beginning with the refreshed Spider-Man destination on MarvelKids.com, younger fans can begin reading the adventures of Ultimate Spider-Man, featuring everyone’s favorite web-head as he teams up with his amazing friends to fight the forces of evil.
Designed to captivate readers of all ages, MarvelKids.com’s Ultimate Spider-Man offers fans a guided reading experience using Marvel’s digital Infinite Comics platform to help younger fans navigate the panels. Taking full advantage of the latest technology, Marvel Infinite Comics showcase the new storytelling possibilities of a digital canvas while still staying true to the medium’s greatest strengths and brings a cinematic experience designed to captivate the next generation of Marvel fans.
With new digital issues arriving every week, the Ultimate Spider-Man series begins with MarvelKids.com’s ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #1: I THINK I’M PARANOID. After a routine run-in with the villainous Jack O’Lantern, Spider-Man is convinced that his spider-sense is on the fritz, when it starts warning him of danger seemingly at random. Turns out, there’s a bigger threat than Jack O’Lantern to worry about, though.
In addition to the high-flying action within Ultimate Spider-Man, fans can take on the role of Spider-Man in a variety of interactive and amazing games and take part in an exciting web of activities including Spider-Man downloadable coloring pages, mazes, and word searches.
“The addition of the Ultimate Spider-Man comics on MarvelKids.com is the perfect way for kids to experience the Marvel Universe and nurture a joy of reading,” says Daniele Campbell, VP of Digital Business Development & CRM. “Through the unique digital comic format, kids of all ages will be able to swing alongside Spider-Man in a way that is easy to navigate, kid-friendly, engaging, and most importantly – fun!”
