And coming Fall 2024, readers can catch up on Spider-Man: Octo-Girl, and the highly anticipated manga adaptation of X-Men: The Manga: Remastered," the announcement reads.

For those unfamiliar with the Shonen Jump app, it is the go-to place for manga binging. The digital app can be accessed on iOS and Android with ease. Users can access more than 10,000 chapters of Shonen Jump hits from My Hero Academia to Dragon Ball and beyond. For less than $25 USD a year, you can read all of the shonen goodies you want, and now Marvel Comics is sweetening the deal with its additions.
