Comic-book stores are in rare supply these days. Comixology is the modern day, iPhone equivalent to this endangered-shop species. Sure — there is other comic-related content in the app store, but the Comixology app is in a league of its own. The app is free, allows users to browse through dozens of free comics and make in-app purchases for others.

Today, Comixology announced the arrival of the comic-book powerhouse Marvel. Yes: X-Men Marvel.

The Marvel comics now available:

The Astonishing X-Men (24 issues), Marvel Zombies (five issue mini-series), X-Men: Age of Apocalypse (six issues), X-23 (six issues), Captain America (first thirty issues), and two other X-Men related items. Each issue costs two bucks.

This is Marvel’s first step into the App Store, but they do have other “motion comics” for sale in iTunes.
