Comixology is Giving Away a Free Comic Every Day for the Next 3 Weeks

Still ComiXology-Comics-Apptrying to make peace with the many customers put off by Amazon's recent changes to the Comixology iOS app, Comixology launched a free comic book promotion yesterday.

Starting Monday, 26 May, Comixology  is giving away a new free digital comic each day. The promotion is going to run 20 days, and if you act fast you can still get Monday's free comic. The remaining 19 free titles have not been revealed, but we do know that Monday's freebie is a Batman title, Detective Comics #871:

A series of brutal murders pushes Batman's detective skills to the limit and forces him to confront one of Gotham City's oldest evils. Plus, when a figure from the past returns to Gotham, Jim Gordon must face some of his darkest demons.

Comixology's name is mud in many comics circles. Following their recent acquisition by Amazon, Comixology  abruptly and unsurprisingly changed their existing app for the iPad and iPhone, removing the option to buy comics from inside the app. The change has been universally poorly received, resulting in the app achieving a 1-star customer rating in iTunes.

  1. Few things are as annoying as learning of promotions when they have passed. Too late for me to get the Detective issue I would have liked, but hey, I can get the craptacular “Magnus Robot Fighter” issue today. I buy from these wankers almost daily, and they cannot be bothered to send me an offer like this?

      1. I wrote them. They wrote back, don’t care, said to bad, so I am no longer a customer.

        Was the point to attract or get rid of buyers? I’m just one customer, but I had recently got the digital comics bug and was buying a fair bit each week, which is now $0 going forward.

        1. They didn’t lose one customer, Andrew, they lost two. I’ve not read a comic book in a very long time (not counting the Watchmen) and I was just about to dip my toe. You saved me future grief.

          Thank you :-)
