You want free stuff? Of course you do. Do you have a computer, tablet, or smartphone or know someone who does? You don’t? Then how the heck are you reading this and what does it feel like to have your pants constantly on fire? We know you have a computer-type device, and if you’re looking for something to read today, well then get over to Comixology or Marvel online shop right now as they are having a massive giveaway.
Now through Tuesday night you can pickup more than 700 number 1 issues from Marvel comics thanks to this promotion. The issues available run the length and breadth of Marvel’s catalog, from Avengers #1 (1963) to Avengers #1 (2012). Oh, and there are many, many non-Avengers comics in there as well.
If you’ve heard about the Marvel Now! initiative and were curious as to what it’s all about, well here is your chance to fine out. Or, if you’re like me and there were a few of the new series that you did not check out, now’s the time to give them a look see.
The other great thing about this sale is that there are a number of annuals and special issues included, so you don’t have to feel like you’re going to get sucked into buying a bunch of incomplete stories. Do a little digging and you’ll find plenty of self-contained stories to keep you entertained.
You want a list of comics that you should be checking out right now? Okay, here we go:
Indestructible Hulk #1 (2012)
All New X-Men #1 (2012)
Daredevil #1 (Vol. 3)
Nextwave: Agents of HATE #1
Runaways #1 (Vol.1)
FF #1 (Vol. 2)
Deadpool #1 (Vol. 4)
That’s a good sampling of a lot of the best Marvel Now! titles with some classics mixed in. Just head over to Comixology or the Marvel Comics Digital Comics Shop; if you have a tablet or smartphone, then download the Comixology or Marvel Comics app and start going to town. Be aware that this is a very, VERY popular giveaway at the moment and Comixology’s servers are having a bit of a problem keeping up, but just keep trying and you will get your comics.
The promotion ends at 11pm EST on Tuesday, March 12, 2013, so get in on this while you can!
Update: Turns out the response to this promotion was so huge, it taxed the Comixology servers more than expected, so they’re unable to give access to these free comics at this time. The company has updated their blog to explain the situation and include a link to a form to fill out to be notified by email as to when the promotion will be ready again – you’ll find that it’s still difficult to get to the form, but try back, we got through on the second try and then got through a few times after that. The homepage slow too, but keep trying there too if there’s other comics you’d like to purchase.
