WOWIO relaunched yesterday under its new owner Platinum Studios, and the first thing I’ve noticed is the free sponsored downloads appear to be a thing of the past.  While you can read the issues online for free, you need to be connected to the Interweb in order to get that freebie.  If you want to download for offline reading later, the prices seem to fluctuate based on the title being offered.

That’s a real bummer.

On the plus side, when you are reading the individual pages, you can save and download the images.  You’ll have to do some renaming, but at least you aren’t stuck paying 99-cents and up for a “free” comic book. I’m sure this exploit will be fixed in the very near future, once word gets out to Platinum.

FLARE ADVENTURES #20 features a magnificent cover by comics legend Frank Brunner, plus two complete adventures.

In the classic tale, “The Night Eternal,” by Dennis Mallonee and Mark Propst, comics’ glittering goddess of the light once again takes up the mantle of Eos, goddess of the dawn, and returns to Olympus to save the realm of the gods from the machinations of the night-goddess Nyx. This adventure also features a flashback guest appearance by DARK MALICE, and surprising revelations about the history of the world of FLARE and the LEAGUE OF CHAMPIONS.

There you go.
