'Tis the season for giving, and it looks like Comixology is taking that to heart.
The world's leading digital comics platform -- available on iOS devices, Android, Kindle Fire, Widnows 8, and the web -- is giving away one free digital comic book a day for the next 12 days. And if today's free book is any indication -- Avengers vs. X-Men #0 -- we're not talking about the usual freebie fare.
"Comixology has had an amazing year and to celebrate we – along with 12 amazing publisher partners – are giving back to the fans and giving them the opportunity to freely share amazing comics," said co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. "By delivering the best reading and buying experience – what we like to call 'buy once, read anywhere' – we’ve hit such milestones as cresting 100 million downloads of comics and graphic novels!"
"Our vision is for everyone, everywhere to read comics and with our Twelve Days of Gifting we’re continuing to make good on that promise,” added co-founder John D. Roberts. "With Comixology being the 11th Top Grossing iPad app in 2011, it’s been gratifying to see how often we’re the very top grossing iPad app this year, particularly on Wednesdays. But we couldn’t have done it without the Comixology fans. These Twelve Days of Gifting are for you and for anyone that loves comics. Spread the love!"
Even better, you can use Comixology's gifting feature to send these to friends and family. So if you've got a tech-savvy loved one that dug all of this summer's comic book movies but doesn't actually read
comics, here's your chance to show them what they're missing.
Each comic becomes available at 1 PM EST and will be free for 24 hours before the next comic replaces it. So, get on it! Head over to Comixology's website
or download the app now.
