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. ;)

You’ve probably already heard about Hunger Games: Catching Fire’s latest marketing campaign but it certainly deserves some more recognition and chatter!

(And if you look closely, you can even play spot the Alexander McQueen…) Seriously, how amazing is Katniss’s dress especially once you see the Mockingjay worked into the design?
Each poster has been exclusively revealed by a different media outlet but you can check out all of the revealed posters over on the official Hunger Games Facebook page.
Monochromes and modernisn, a girl’s best friends. While we may not have a vast fortune at our shopping disposal, we’re still happy to take cues from the White Queen when it comes to a strangely sexy minimalism — trust fund tailoring that vies with sleek, urban silhouettes. And afterall, the whole world is watching…
