Just as it's done for the last two years, digital comic book seller ComiXology is once again running its "12 Days of Free Comics" event to celebrate Christmas.
That means that every day between December 11 and December 22, 2014 you can go to ComiXology's website or app to get one free digital comic book. ComiXology is keeping secret the 12 titles chosen for this year, but says that they come from a variety of publishers, so you can expect to find a wide range of genres and characters.
"It's been an outstanding year for us at ComiXology, and we want every comic fan to help us celebrate," said co-founder and CEO David Steinberger about the promotion. "It's you, the comics fan, that pushes us every day to create an even brighter future for comics, graphic novels, and manga worldwide. These comics are for you!"
The retailer also reminds shoppers that the freebies being offered daily can be "gifted" instantly to others, who will also receive them for free. (It's basically a "share this" thing, but "gift" sounds more enticing.)
Each of the 12 titles is expected to be free for just 24 hours, so you may want to set a daily reminder on your phone or computer to ensure you don't miss any of them. The first title, available today, is Vertigo's The Wake #1 by Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy.
The free ComiXology app is available for iOS, Android, Kindle, and Windows Phone.
