I was jealous that there wasn’t anything like that today. Marvel Unlimited Plus is today’s M.M.M.S. Marvel Unlimited is Marvel’s version of Netflix for comics. For a monthly or annual fee, you get unlimited access to digital Marvel comics from the start of the company to as recent as about 6 months ago. The catalog is updated every Monday, with newer comics and back issues alike. Marvel Unlimited Plus adds another layer to the subscription.

NYCC 2014 Sunday Panel Guide...

Well, you did it. You made it all the way to Sunday at NYCC. Congratulations. But don’t get too restful. There’s still a full day of panels available for you to enjoy! Here are our picks for the best of them! 11:00 AM – 11:45 AM – The Karate Kid 30th Anniversary Cast Reunion – 1A10 Oh man, Ralph Macchio, Billy Zabka and Martin Kove are all going to be here for this! That’s Daniel, Johnny and Sensei Kreese! This panel is the best around! 11:00 AM – 11:45 AM – Marvel Unlimited + Member Event – 1A21 You have to be a Marvel Unlimited + member to attend this panel, but you can sign up for Marvel Unlimited + at the Marvel booth. As someone who regularly uses Marvel Unlimited and is a + member, I highly recommend it. As a + member, you receive an exclusive Marvel Legends action figure, an exclusive variant comic, swag mailed to you throughout the year, and access to panels like this at NYCC, SDCC, C2E2 and SE:NYC. I went to this panel last year and loved it. 11:00 AM – 11:45 AM – Stormtroopers vs. Red Shirts – 1A18 Is the question here, which is better, Star Wars or Star Trek? Because that’s easy. It’s Star Wars. 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM – NY Minute Dating – 1E03 Two of us here at Tuesday Night Movies were almost trampled to death by single fanboys and fangirls trying to get into this event a couple of NYCCs ago. Please don’t trample us this year. But please do have fun, and hopefully meet a cute fanboy and fangirl to accompany you to one of the panels we recommend later in the day. 11:15...
