ComiXology launched a holiday special providing readers with a one-day window to download a new free comic each of the next twelve days beginning with Batman #13, the launching point for the acclaimed "Death of the Family" storyline. The popular digital comics retailer also recently launched an e-giftcard program that allows readers to give gift certificates rather than gifting specific issues--something that will be promoted in conjunction with the freebies. "It's been another banner year at comiXology and we want everyone to join us in these 12 Days of Free Comics as we give back to the fans that made this outstanding year possible," said comiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. "From launching comiXology Europe and comiXology Submit, reaching 200 million downloads less than a year after reaching 100 million, and much more, this year has been great – as thanks these free comics are for you." "Over the course of these 12 days we're making holiday giving easier than it's ever been," said comiXology co-founder John D. Roberts. "These twelve days aren't just to give back to the fans that have made comiXology so great but also to let those fans share the love of comics with everyone they know." ComiXology's 12 Days of Free Comics will run from Monday, December 9th until Friday, December 20th with one new comic made free every day to download or to gift to anyone you choose.
