GLX - Where is the Spiderman/X-Men Digital Spectacular? I kept my eye out for it, but couldn't find it.


Just got my email, so I now know their setup. 5 slide under the Spider-Man section.

Probably about 8-10 hours depending on what type of grandma you drive like.

After having the page reset on me a couple of times through dumb "what happens if I do this?" clicks, I wanted to just automate all this needless clicking.

However, the time it would take to develop some kind of script or tool would take much longer than just selecting them all. Here we go...

Still waiting. Writing the proverbial "if it doesn't come" complaint article in my head.

Took me 15 minutes or so to select all of them (723). I didn't know my thumb and forefinger could cramp like that while using a trackball.

About a minute after I finished the order, I got confirmation that they had all been added to my Comixology library, which is much less than the 12 hours they said to allow for.

Nice! I skipped it this time since I got all the ones I wanted to read the first time before it crashed. Was pretty sweet getting some 170+ books all at once.

I grabbed the Holiday issues and the Enders Game material (as far as the stuff I missed before goes).

Kinda wished they added new #1's to the bunch as an added bonus, but oh well. :smt102
