I wouldn't have been worried about reading my digital comics offline before last week, when my iPad's 6GB storage ran out for the first time after a year of downloading Comixology issues with abandon. I looked into backing up old issues and if course it turned out that wasn't possible, leading to the painful exercise of deciding which few dozen issues I would delete, knowing that I would have to re-download them if I ever got the urge to re-read them. Then something like this happens. Great timing.
To add insult to injury, my checkout refresh got through... just after they decided to end the promo. So not only do I have no access to comics but I was charged for what were supposed to be a bunch of 'free' #1s!
A pleasure doing business with you, Comixology.
Phew, looks like they're voiding charges, at least.
So the site crashed and then the page they put up for notification once the deal is back on also crashed. Good one, guys. High fives all around.
