As part of their celebration of closing in on 100,000,000 downloads Comixology is giving away one free comic a day until they reach that magic number. Here’s a snippet.
With the quickly approaching milestone of 100 million comic and graphic downloads, and with a selection of over 28,000 comics and graphic novels to choose from – with over 900 of those available for free — comiXology securely stands as the market leader in the digital comics and graphic novel space and the go-to platform for newly interested and lapsed comic and graphic novel fans.
For the first free comic Comixology is offering Spider-Men issue 1. Head over to their Spotlight page and grab the code to get the issue for free. There’s no indication how close they actually are to their goal number so who knows how long this promotion will run.
Let’s hope we’ll see Comixology offering their comics DRM free in the near future so we can actually own our digital purchases. Yes, I’m going to drone on about DRM free digital comics until it becomes a reality; I don’t see Apple or Amazon losing money on digital music in the years since they switched over.
