On Saturday night I was lazing around on the couch, watching TV, and I thought I would check into Twitter to see what was going on in the world.
My Twitter feed has been busy lately because of Dan Slott, the writer of Amazing Spider-Man. Spider-Man fans have been Tweeting up Dan Slott a storm because of the lead up to Amazing Spider-Man #700, Superior Spider-Man #1 and the reaction to the recently released Amazing Spider-Man #698. Dan has been busy retweeting and reacting to the various messages he has received.
But Saturday night was different.
Dan Slott was giving away free comics.
Dan would tweet the digital redemption code for a free Spider-Man comic book. Eventually the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man fans started joining in and they would send Dan Slott their codes, for him to retweet.
This is a great idea to get people hooked on reading Spider-Man, and get people interested in comic books.
In October CBD EiC Scott VanderPloeg posted a column about what to do with your digital codes. He had several suggestions about what to do with the codes. Some of those included giving them away or reselling the code. I have several codes laying around, that I do not have a use for.
I am starting to embrace digital comics. It would be great to carry thousands of comic books with you anywhere, but technologically I don’t have a device that is made for digital comics, and I don’t see myself buying one in the immediate future.
So this is a bonus for you Comic Book Daily Nation!!!
I am going to give away my Amazing Spider-Man digital comic codes.
I am going to list below my codes for Amazing Spider-Man #692 thru to ASM #698. Now since the code will only work once, it will be first come first served.
Now you may be asking yourself why am I doing this?
The answer is simple. I believe in Dan Slott.
When I was in high school, I was a huge Spider-Man fan. My two favourite comic book characters were Batman and Spider-Man. But eventually my interest in Spider-Man dwindled (I think it was the “Coming Home” story arc… Spider totem my ass!). I stopped reading Spidey on a regular basis, and ended up selling off a bunch of my trades, and I donated a bunch of my monthlies.
Then I got my hands on Amazing Spider-Man #692, and my love for Spider-Man was ignited again. And I attribute that to Dan Slott.
He has amazing vision for the character, and a deep knowledge of the Spider-Man universe, that makes for a fascinating read. I am excited for what will happen in the last two issues of Amazing Spider-Man (#699 & #700), and I look forward to a new “superior” future.
So here are my codes, and I hope you enjoy these Spider-Man stories as much as I did. Who knows what I may give away next? I have lots of codes that are not being used. Perhaps my digital code for The Avengers?!?
The Amazing Spider-Man #692 (50th Anniversary) – MTML11IKAP7M
The Amazing Spider-Man #693 – MTML71WYB0VU (that’s B-zero-V-U)
The Amazing Spider-Man #694 – MTML15XQZHJ9
Those 3 issues are the Alpha storyline.
Next up we see Spider-Man take on Hobgoblin. Actually… make that two Hobgoblins.
The Amazing Spider-Man #695 – MTML18N005G1 (N-zero-zero-5)
The Amazing Spider-Man #696 – MTML16QECTH9
The Amazing Spider-Man #697 – MTML6PD7EQEY
The final code I have to give away is the most controversial Spider-Man comic to come out in years. I can’t even tell you what it is about, because I don’t want to spoil it for you.
The Amazing Spider-Man #698 – MTML18ABPJT0 (T-zero)
I hope you enjoy these comics as much as I did.
