Marvel’s Adding 12,000 Comics to the Kindle Store

Marvel has just made another big leap into the digital world this week by adding some 12,000 single issues to Amazon’s Kindle Store, allowing Kindle readers Marvel comics directly on their digital device. Amazon also owns the biggest digital comics publisher, comiXology, and as part of the deal, Marvel will now have a featured spot on Amazon and the Kindle app’s homepages.

With so many new fans being drawn to the Marvel universe via the movies, it’s no surprise that their readership has grown by leaps and bounds lately, and the biggest new influx of readers to digital comics, it turns out, has been women. According The Wall Street Journal, the new Ms. Marvel title was actually Marvel’s best-selling digital comic of last year, which makes a ton of sense, as that book has been a big hit with female readers.

LeVar Burton goes the fuck to sleep!

Samuel Jackson did it for the audiobook, but Reading Rainbow’s LeVar Burton’s reading of the book “Go the F–k to Sleep” might just be the best.

During a recent Rooster Teeth 24-hour livestream to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network, Burton read the hilarious spoof bedtime story with all the flair one would expect from the children’s television star. The reading is pretty fucking great, and the fact that the livestream raised about $240,000 is pretty cool, too.
