While many of us spent Monday barbecuing, watching X-Men: Days of Future Past or otherwise enjoying the day off from work, comiXology got a jump on the season with the launch of its “Summer Reading List,” offering one free digital comic a day for 20 days.
The initiative debuted with Detective Comics #827, by Scott Snyder, Jock and Francesco Francavilla, the issue that began the writer’s celebrated run on Batman. What’s today’s selection? It’s a good question, one that should be answered any … second … now.
It’s worth noting that customers can also gift each day’s selection to others, for free. “ComiXology fans deserve an amazing line-up of outstanding comics to discover from top publishers so they can read and share with everyone they know,” Chip Mosher, comiXology’s vice president of communications and marketing, said in a statement. “We know nothing beats a sunny day reading comics, except twenty days and free to boot! By the end of the promotion comics fans will have a great summer reading list.”ComiXology’s “Summer Reading List” continues through June 14.
