They announced that that #1 promo meant for the next three days they're giving away 700 first issues on Comixology. Which immediately crashed under the weight of the server traffic. :lol:

Duh. I mean like any Marvel #1 or just certain ones?

I mean, if they were giving way first issues of FF v1. #1, and X-Men v1 #1, I could understand the excitement.

I can't even seem to get on ComiXolgy. So either Squid is right, or they really didn't like what I wrote about them Friday.

Why wouldn't they be? It's all digital, as in worthless.

But if you're asking me specifically what 700 comics on Comixology they're offering--as though I'd know, care, or sit here listing them... :smt005

Sure, there could be...700 of those? Think about that for a minute. :smt017

They include All New X-Men, Avengers, Avengers Arena, Captain America, Cable And X-Force, Deadpool, Fantastic Four, FF, Indestructible Hulk, Iron Man, Point One, Morbius, New Avengers, Savage Wolverine, Superior Spider-Man, Thor God Of Thunder, Thunderbolts, Uncanny Avengers, Uncanny X-Force, X-Men Legacy, Young Avengers and A Plus X from Marvel NOW!, but also most every major series and volume ever published by Marvel through their history. Oh and A Babies Vs X-Babies.
