Star Wars, R.I.P.D., Killjoys and More Free From Dark Horse Digital

0commentsDark Horse Comics Free Comic Book Day 2013

If you missed out on picking up your Free Comic Book Day comics at your local comic book store, you can get them from Dark Horse Digital for a limited time! This year was the twelfth Free Comic Book Day, and while most major publishers are still trying to figure out what to do with their approach to digital (since FCBD is nominally about getting new readers into comic book retail stores), some see the tablet market as an untapped source of readers and revenue, and elect to make their  FCBD titles available online, as well. Dark Horse is in a particularly strong position to do it, since their free offerings will attract a lot of attention from outside of comics--licensed properties and long-running popular characters combine with Gerard Way's next comic after Umbrella Academy. Both Mass Effect/Killjoys/R.I.P.D. and Star Wars/Captain Midnight/Avatar: The Last Airbender will be available for free download through Dark Horse Digital starting today. Dark Horse Digital is available through all modern web browsers and features cloud storage in both the Google Play and Apple Store apps.
