For a limited time, Marvel Comics Unlimited is offering one month of their digital comics service for 99 cents (Use code SDCC14 at checkout). Once the month is up, the monthly price goes up to $9.99. The digital comics service is great for the classroom as it gives access to thousands of comics which can be integrated into instruction. Looking to draw allusions to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? A few choice panels from the Incredible Hulk series would illustrate the point with a familiar character. Mythology is easier to introduce to students when you look at Norse mythology and discuss Odin and Thor before delving into some more complex myths. Marvel Comics Unlimited offers so many comics and provides a wealth of opportunities to incorporate these characters and their stories in the classroom. For 99 cents, it’s a great opportunity to check out the service and evaluate its usefulness for your classroom.
