The ongoing efforts to push the barriers of a traditional, visual comic experience continue with the introduction of Marvel’s Aural Index to the Marvel Universe, a unique, immersive experience that allows you to listen to long forgotten stories from Marvel's past.

“We are always trying to innovate in comics and always trying to keep that innovation going,” says Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso. “The thought is, how do we keep it more immersive and more entertaining than it already is? Digital comics in general have been enormously successful for us but not everyone has the time to read, so adding audio editions to catch up on titles you may have missed while jogging in the park, or driving the kids to school was just something fantastic that we had to do!.

And thanks to Axel, we've got an exclusive listen to the first issue of X-Men from 1963 so you can see what a truly amazing experience it is. Just press play on the player below:

And, for those that can't listen to the audio file, we've transcribed it for you, which you can read by clicking this [link]
