No, it's there. Was there at 2300ish but I was too tired to post, Young Avengers.

Last week they never coded it as Marvel Monday, iirc, and it lasted a week.

Edit to add:
They are calling today's Marvel Monday, Avengers: Children's Crusade.

Young Avengers 1-12
Avengers: Children's Crusade 1-9
Young Avengers Presents 1-6
Young Avengers Special 1

Never read this one, perhaps I'll check out a couple of last year's free #1s.

Man, that does not look good. I had some second thoughts, but took it anyway because it's free.

Rom, Micronauts and Superboy and the Legion of Super Heroes need to be released digitally. As a kid, I loved those.

The first two have licensing issues (toy properties). Ironically the second one probably had legal issues a few years ago, but I think(?) they settled that Superboy lawsuit now.

Today's Summer Reading Freebie is Anti-Hero #1 from Monkeybrain.

The Fathom sale continues until 6/5/14 and includes singles, collections, and a bundle.

The Ghostbusters sale
lasts until 6/9/14 and includes singles or collections. If I did the page count estimate right, the collection appear to have bonus material.

No new sales or bundles or other freebies found so far.

Today's Summer Reading Freebie is Letter 44 #1 from OniPress, and sounds like a great story. Anyone read it before?

No new sales or bundles found, but they did just add three more of the recent FCBD books; V-Wars, Transformers vs G.I. Joe, and Rise of the Magi.

Re: Digital Comic Book Discussion and Deals (Comixology, etc)

Three new sales started today (/last night).

A Street Fighter sale from Udon lasts until 6/8/14 and includes 9 collections and 32 singles.

A Runaways sale from Marvel lasts through 2300 tonight and includes:

Vol 1 issues 1-18
Vol 2 issues 1-30
Vol 3 issues 1-14

It's also available as a bundle of all 62 issues for $59.99, but you may have the three #1s for free already, so the bundle is more expensive.

There is also another collection sale from Marvel with two titles this time: Captain America: Winter Soldier vol 1 which collects issues 1-7 of the 2004 series, and X-Force: Angels and Demons which collects issues 1-6 of the 2008 series.

The Summer Reading freebie of the day is the new Silver Surfer #1.

I'd be more excited if I didn't just buy someone's digital copy of it yesterday!

Unfortunately I don't think we will see ROM any time soon. Its one of those twisted tangled IP rights issues. Its a shame too. And what happened to the writer of that series was fucking awful.

I'll post more tomorrow, but a week long Preacher sale just started, and Letter 44 and X-Men collections sales.

Re: Digital Comic Book Discussion and Deals (Comixology, etc)

Today's Summer Reading Freebie is Shutter #1 from Image.

Viz is now on Comixology and they have a sale on Blue Exorcist vol 1 for $1.99 which is about 70% off.

Onipress has a sale on Letter 44 until 6/12/14. Issues 1-5 are $.99 and issue 6 is $1.99, or all are bundled for $5.99. I just read the first issue (free last week) and it's a great story. Having issue one already, the bundle is actually a few cents more expensive, but I think I'll buy it that way anyway so I don't have that annoying 'buy' option on the bundle page even though I own each of the issues. #ocdminutiae

DC/Vertigo have a weeklong sale on Preacher. All 66 issues, plus the 4 issue Saint of Killers mini, and the 5 one-shots for $.99 each, no bundle option.

A new freebie from DC is the DC Entertainment Essential Graphic Novels and Chronology.

Marvel has added 8 X-Men collections to their Marvel Collections Sale.
X- Necrosha collects 14 books for $14.99
X-tinction Agenda collects 13 books for $14.99
X-Cutioner's Song collects 14 books for $9.99
Mutant Massacre collects 13 books for $14.99
Inferno collects 21 books for $14.99
Fatal Attractions vol 1 collects 14 books for $5.99
Fatal Attractions vol 2 collects 14 books for $5.99
Age of X collects 8 books for $9.99

I'm not much of an X-Man fan, but some of those prices have me tempted. Any recommendations?

Oops, here's another freebie, on the Marvel app or webpage, which will then go to your Comixology account if you've done that sync; Disney Kingdoms: Seekers of the Weird #1, use promo code Weird.

I noticed if I put in the search free comic book, I get a few free comics not listed on the free comic link.

Yep, the free comic section has never been complete. I search for FCBD and free and sampler every few days and occasionally find new things.
