Chip Zdarsky gave comic book readers yet another reason to subscribe to his hilarious newsletter this morning, revealing that, on the first Wednesday without comics in recent memory, his ComiXology Original series Afterlift will be free for the next 24 hours.

And since you just gave them a bunch of money, and there are no new comics out this week, I’ve talked with ComiXology, and we’re going to release the full collection to everyone today, for free.

Yeah, that’s right. For free. It’s a 24-hour offer, so grab it now!

To redeem your code, follow the steps below:

  • Head to go
  • Sign into your existing account by pressing the “Sign In Button”. (New users can create an account by clicking the “Not a member? Sign up here.” button)
  • Enter the code AFTERLIFT and click “Redeem”.
  • Read it! or don’t! I have no control over events of the world and I accept this fact!

In addition to offering a free copy of Afterlift, Zdarsky also encourages readers to support a GoFundMe for his local comic book store Little Island Comics.

A lot of comic shops and their employees are hurting, so if you can help them in any way, through online ordering or paying for existing pull files, that would be great. My local shop has a fundraiser to help their staff through this, so if you’re so inclined and able, I’d love it if you chipped in something for them:


  1. Love this idea, and I have purchased every one of Mr. Zdarsky’s print comics, so I thought this would be a nice way to check out digital comics. Unfortunately, when I enter the code it tells me it’s already been redeemed. Oh well, with any luck this will be coming out in a trade edition somewhere down the line. Be well, all!
