[EIW] Free Comics For All!
No but seriously. If you haven’t heard already, Marvel announced yesterday at their SXSW panel that they are offering 700 first issues or first appearances of digital comics for FREE
until Tuesday. The demand for the comics has actually overwhelmed the servers and so right now, you give them your email address and they will let you know when the promotion kicks back in. But they will still be free. Let us count the ways in which this is fabulous and awesome! Okay, so maybe we won’t count them all but here’s a few in case you need convincing:
- It is a free way to get into comics
- It is a free way to test the waters of new series
- Your digital library can expand drastically
- No but seriously: it’s free comics. What other reason do you need?
Really, you should definitely take advantage of this sale. Also, don’t be discouraged if it takes you a few tries to get the site to load. Comixology’s servers are taking a beating but you’ll get through eventually so be patient and be kind to the hard working support staff. ;)
Free Comics, folks. Why are you still reading this?
