Between smart phones and tablets, digital comics are more prevalent than ever before. All of the major comic publishers have their own apps for the Apple and Android devices, most powered by Comixology, except Dark Horse Comics. (Why? I do not know.) For a number of promotional reasons, all of the publishers offer free comics on their respective apps. For example, DC Comics offers a book called “Sneak Peeks”, which is basically a few preview pages taken from all the comics they plan on releasing that week put into one book. This is nice, but not something Fanboys are going to waste their precious gigs on. Image Comics will usually offer most series’ first issue after about six months of that series debut. (In fact, right now the first issue of every series that launched at Image in 2012 is available for FREE on the Image Comics app.) However, Marvel Comics offers more free comics than any other publisher.
Every Tuesday Marvel Comics offers 3 FREE comics on the Marvel Comics App. These 3 comics will only be free for two weeks, after which the books will revert back to full price. Marvel also offers a number of free comic previews on their app, but on any given day there are at least 6 full issues available for FREE on the app.
