ComiXology is back this year with its own take on an Advent calendar, the third annual "12 Days of Free Comics."
Each day through Dec. 22, the company will offer a digital comic for free, beginning today with The Wake #1 by Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy (it may be a holiday tradition for Snyder as well, as last year's event kicked off with Batman #13).
What's more, each comic can be gifted to friends, family members or co-workers. However, each day's selection is available for download only until 11 p.m. ET (a slight change from last year, when you had 24 hours).
“It’s been an outstanding year for us at comiXology, and we want every comic fan to help us celebrate with our third annual 12 Days of Free Comics,” CEO David Steinberger said in a statement. “It’s you, the comics fan, that push us every day to create an even brighter future for comics, graphic novels and manga worldwide. These comics are for you!”
