There's only one thing we here at The Outhouse love as much as we love to be jerks and make fun of the comics news, and that is getting free comics. So, readers must understand that this puts us in a very awkward position, because we have, in our hands, some great comics news, but that news is about a free comic. After hours of agonizing soul-searching, we have decided to let our greed overcome our snark and just let you know: you can get a free digital comic right now!
Later today, DC Comics will release their Batman Earth One Special Preview Edition in comic shops everywhere. The free comic book features the first chapter of Geoff Johns and Gary Frank's Batman Earth One, as well as a preview from Batman Vol. 1: The Court of The Owls, the trade paperback collecting Scott Snyder's acclaimed Batman run.
There are 500,000 copies printed to be handed out for free on a first come, first serve basis, but DC didn't stop there! Starting at midnight, the comic became available digitally on Comixology
, Kindle Fire
, and Nook
Don't worry, we'll get back to accusing Dan Didio of personally raping the childhood of every person who ever walked past a spin rack in the morning, but for now, let's all just sit back, relax, and enjoy getting something for nothing!
All of this good will from DC is in celebration of The Dark Knight Rises, which hits theaters in just about 22 hours!
