Today at SXSW, Marvel announced it is giving away 700 free digital comics, which promptly caused the comiXology servers to slow to a crawl. The servers are back up (great job comiXology on fixing that fast), and people are snagging free comics left and right.
Between today (March 10) and Tuesday march 12 at 11:00 PM EST, Marvel is giving away 700 #1 issues for free. This includes Avengers, Captain America, Thor, and even includes a number of Marvel NOW! titles.
I don’t know about you, but I’m busy clicking the download button on my iPad right now.
