Not everything that happens to Comic-Con happens AT Comic-Con, as evidenced by the news announcement just passed across to The Beat by ComiXology’s Chip Mosher.
This year saw ComiXology launch “ComiXology Unlimited”, a subscription service which allows readers to keep up with digital copies of their favourite comics. And, with SDCC here, they’ve decided to capitalise by offering up a number of new titles to subscribers – but only while the convention lasts. When we hit July 24th, this offer ends.
The titles being offered through the course of the event are:
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight: Vol. 6-8, #26-40
- Giant Days #5-14
- Kaijumax Vol. 1, #1-6
- Sheltered Vol. 2, 3, #6-15
- Red Sonja #7-18, Vol. 2 & 3
Those are some carefully chosen picks there, with a range of publishers represented – notably, all of them from studio press publishers like Oni and Dynamite. They’re also a load of comics which would appeal to a wider demographic than most. Red Sonja and Buffy share a lot of similarities, especially in the Gail Simone/Walter Geovani run; and Giant Days is a book which nobody should be passing by.
So those are some nice additions to ComiXology Unlimited – you can look into it in more detail here.
