Marvel first announced their Infinite Comics format (digital comic books designed to specifically take advantage of the format and capabilities of mobile devices) last year at South by Southwest. They returned to the interactive festival in Austin, Texas on Sunday to reveal that Infinite Comics are going weekly in July. First up? Wolverine: Japan’s Most Wanted, by Jason Aaron, Jason LaTour, and Paco Diaz. The series starts on July 9, a little more than two weeks before the release of the Japan-set The Wolverine feature film. There will be 4 series, each consisting of 13 chapters, available on the Marvel Comics app.
Since debuting in April 2012 with Avengers vs. X-Men #1, Marvel’s Infinite Comics releases had been sporadic; three over the course of AvX, an Ultimate Spider-Man animated series tie-in released at last year’s New York Comic Con, and a series of four Guardians of the Galaxy prequels that started last week. The weekly Infinite Comics will be released on Tuesday, and no price point has been announced (previous Infinite Comics sold from 99 cents to $1.99).
