Comixology's FREE comics giveaway

Postby Fade2Black » Mar 11th, 2013 @ 3:41am

Now through March 12, 2013, Comixology is offering over 700 Marvel titles (mostly issue number ones) for free.
I'm primarily a print media comic book reader, but it's hard to complain about FREE.

Not surprisingly, the site's servers weren't prepared to handle the increase in traffic.
Good luck getting through.

To our customers:

It’s been a whirlwind weekend, and we’re fresh from SXSW where Marvel Comics launched their Marvel #1 promotion featuring over 700 free comics distributed via our platform.

We expected a high degree of excitement for the Marvel initiative – and had believed ourselves prepared – but unfortunately we became overwhelmed by the immense response. We’re still struggling to keep our systems up.

The result is that you aren’t getting your comics when and where you want.

We don’t like letting you down. Our teams are working around the clock to resolve these issues so that you can have the experience you’ve come to expect.

To that end, we’re pausing the Marvel Comics #1 promotion for the time being. For those of you that want to take advantage of the offer – you will get your comics! Until we are able to reinstate this program in our systems, please click here and fill out this simple form, so you can be informed as soon as there is an update.

We’ll be communicating with you as often as we can and deeply appreciate the outpouring of support we’ve seen from our customers while we right the ship.
