But will the comics make you merry? You'll have to wait to find out!
Hey, you remember those little boxes of candy you may have gotten as a kid with the little doors you open each day during the Christmas season and there's a piece of candy inside? Maybe they were meant to celebrate Advent, a month-long Christian holiday that involves eating a lot of fish, as far as I can remember. In any case, comiXlogy is doing something similar with their 12 Days of Free Comics promotion. Unlike the candy boxes, however, fat eight year old Jude Terror can't just open up all the doors and eat all the candy on the first day. Instead, you're going to have to wait for a new comic to be revealed every day. You'll have 24 hours to claim it.
Today, the free comic is Batman #13, the first issue in the Death of the Family story arc.
And hey, if you're a heathen non-Christmas-celebrator, you can still participate because the promotion is scrubbed of any mention of Christmas, using snowflakes to represent the mysterious free comics instead of little baby Jesuses as God intended. Nobody tell Bill O'Reilly!
This is great news for Jews, who were stuck with those little plastic sacks of chocolate gold coins instead of a sweet Jesus box. Man, you guys really had it rough.
ComiXology recommends that you sign up for their mailing list to be notified of the free comics each day, or follow them on Tumblr where you can experience mad feels about the comics as well. Pick up your free copy of Batman #13 here.
We get it. You don't feel like signing up for an Outhouse account, even though it's FREE and EASY! That's okay. You can comment with your Facebook account below and we'll take care of adding it to the stream above.

Note: while you are welcome to speak your mind freely on any topic, we do ask that you keep discussion civil between each other. Nasty personal attacks against other commenters is strongly discouraged. Thanks!
