Marvel Entertainment is excited to announce the Marvel Comics API, Marvel’s new application programming interface (API), which gives developers access to portions of Marvel’s comic data for use in their personal, non-commercial websites and applications. Beginning Friday, January 31st, the beta version of the Marvel Comics API is available on the new Developer Portal on Marvel.com. This represents the first API program by any major comic book publisher and provides an innovative way for fans to interact with Marvel Entertainment and Marvel’s digital content.
Peter Olson, VP of Web & Application Development says, “Our API program is a cool new way to explore and interact with Marvel Comics. Unlike lists of books, movies, or news articles, our comics are an inter-connected web (no Spidey pun intended!) of data spanning 75 years. It's the relationships between them that are fascinating. Everything is connected and continues to expand as more comics are released each week. With our API program, once again, Marvel is changing the comics and publishing technology landscape."
Developers can create accounts, access the API, test drive queries in interactive forms, read documentation and ask questions at Marvel’s new Developer Portal at developer.marvel.com.
The Marvel Comics API provides a deep look into the underlying data of the Marvel Universe - it's another way Marvel Comics is making the Marvel Universe "Your Universe".
