Comixology is trying once again to give away 700 free comics. This time they're only allowing new users to download the comics after they receive an invitation. Though this sounds like a hassle, Comixology has done this so that the site does not crash for about 3 days straight due to traffic. So create your account before April 11! (That's this Thursday.)
Timed to curve out a slice of the tech buzz at early March's South by South West, digital comics platform Comixology teamed up with Marvel Comics to give away 700 different Marvel first issues. Well, folks like their free comics and the response brought down Comixology for over a day, turning the amazing gesture into an embarrassing stumble.
Well, now they're having another go at it. And this time they're going to try staggering it.
To get your free comics, sign up on Comixology today, then wait the invitation that they'll be sending out starting the 11th.
