New and returning subscribers to Marvel's digital comic service Marvel Unlimited can get their first month free for a limited time.

Yeah, you might have heard of deals like this before. This isn't the first time Marvel has done a promotion like this (and it won't be the last), but this time is special for one reason: Star Wars. With Star Wars: The Force Awakens right around the corner, fans can't get enough of the galaxy far, far away.

If you find yourself in that boat, this free month of Marvel Unlimited is a pretty solid deal. In addition to having access to more than 17,000 Marvel Comics, fans can check out Marvel's across-the-board excellent Star Wars comics set in the new continuity, including Star Wars by Jason Aaron and John Cassaday. While more recent Star Wars comics like Shattered Empire and Lando aren't included, fans can still read issues of the excellent Darth Vader, Princess Leia and Kanan: The Last Padawan. It's just the thing to get you in the mood for Dec. 17.

Sweetening the deal is Marvel's collection of more than 500 Star Wars Legends comics. These stories may now longer be considered official canon, but there is still plenty of great reading material here for Star Wars superfans, some of which we've covered here in this look at some of the best Dark Horse Star Wars comics.

If it's something you're interested in, all you have to do is use the promo code "FORCE" at the Marvel Unlimited checkout screen. Then you'll be all set to enjoy some great Star Wars comics whether on your PC or on iOS and Android devices through the Marvel Unlimited App. Let the Force be with you.
