Comixology sent out a press release this morning, here’s a piece.
“ComiXology and Marvel are pleased to announce the return of Marvel #1, a unique opportunity for fans to experience all of their favorite Marvel Super Heroes, and some new ones, by accessing over 700 #1 issues for free. These free comics can be read on the comiXology platform – available across iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows 8 the Web at comiXology.com – and the Marvel Comics app (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch & Android devices) and online in the Marvel Digital Comics Shop, both powered by comiXology.”
Now this offer is only available until 11:59pm ET on April 9th, 2013. Here’s the promotional page: Over 700 Free Issues! So I guess if you’re a Marvel fan and looking to get into digital here’s your chance.
Admittedly this feels like a cash grab, a bait and switch, a classic drug dealer scenario… Yea sure we’ll give you the first one free… the rest are gonna cost ya though! But really how else are they going to drag people (kicking and screaming) into this century?
