You may recall a few weeks back when ComiXology ambitiously partnered with Marvel to give away over 700 free #1 issues. The site could not handle the insane traffic and download requests and crashed within hours. They’re back for another go at giving away 700 free Marvel comics. This time you have to sign up in advance before April 19th 11:59 PM on their special promo site. Why they don’t give away only a few books per day, I don’t know. So head on over, sign up, and grab as many as you can before the inevitable happens.
Official Press Release:
New York, NY— April 8th, 2013— Everyone remembers their first comic book, and now – Marvel is giving you over 700 of them FOR FREE with Marvel #1!
