COMIXOLOGY COMMEMORATES ONE YEAR OF DIGITAL COMICS BY GIVING BACK TO FANS

Starting out as a social resource for information on new comic releases, comiXology has developed into the leading innovator of digital comics. Within the course of the last year, the company has launched its own successful digital comic app, Comics by comiXology for iOS devices and the Web, while powering independent apps from the top publishers in the comic book industry.
To commemorate the one year anniversary of their entry into digital comics, comiXology will be treating fans with the following three announcements:
Digital Anniversary Sale

BOX 13: THE PANDORA PROCESS

The follow up collaboration from Zuda and Harvey-Award Winning Creators David Gallaher and Steve Ellis, BOX 13: THE PANDORA PROCESS will launch allowing readers each new issue free for a limited time.
? Finally, in celebration of the anniversary and the recently launched Comics by comiXology Web store and viewer, comic fans will automatically be entered into a drawing for an iPad with every web purchase made during the sale.**
David Steinberger, comiXology CEO, notes “Digital comics can look amazing on any device, PCs and Macs included, which is why we launched Comics by comiXology for the web. You don’t need to have an iPad or iPhone to enjoy digital comics, but we thought we’d make at least one web user’s day by giving them another brilliant way to experience digital comics.”
