Marvel tries again with free "first issue" promotion
Remember a few weeks back when Marvel was giving away more than 700 first-issue digital comic books? Remember how it clogged up the servers and pretty much amounted to a big bust? Marvel is back, hoping to right things with a second effort.
If you missed out on the first go’round or hopes to get in on the first issue loving, you can sign up for access to the giveaways. Unlike the last time, this giveaway is staged in waves. Starting this Thursday, Marvel will begin issuing emails with instructions on how to redeem some freebies. It’s not immediately clear how long the entire deal will last so sit tight; it could be weeks before you’re in the door.
