ComiXology Celebrates The Holidays With 12 Days of Free Comics Starting With The Dark Knight!
Something that I've never really mentioned on here is that I am a pretty big comic book fan, in specific, Batman and X-Men. If you haven't been keeping up with the Batverse, and you are a horror fan, than I cannot recommend it enough as I've read and seen some stuff more terrifying in those comic books than I've seen on a screen in some time.
I have actually been trying to post a review of the latest story arc, involving the demented return of Batman's arch nemesis, the Joker, entitled Death of the Family. It's way harder to post a review of 23 issues than it sounds, and while I will get it up eventually, it's a work in progress that has been rewritten several times.
Regardless! ComiXology, in quite the amazing fashion, is sharing the holiday love by offering a new digital download of a popular comic EVERYDAY for twelve days! How are they starting it off, you may ask? Well, with none other than Batman #13, the first issue in the Death of the Family arc! I already got mind, head over and you can either gift it to a friend, or gift it to yourself. Either way, it is an absolute must read for the Batman fan or the horror fan.
Head here to snag your copy and head below for the press release! I can't wait to see what's coming tomorrow!
