PiercingMetal Thoughts: This is pretty cool. I’m sure going to miss “Free Comic Book Day” this year since I wanted to do a cute little video clip about it but we are in the beginning stages of a big health crisis here so everything must be put on hold. I’ve been using ComiXology for a few years now but generally to only peruse the free comic book offerings as opposed to purchasing them. I still love the feel of the actual comic book but when they do some free ones I am all in. I’ve often recommended to friends whose little ones have the mobile devices glued to their hands to login and download a bunch of the free stuff to inspire said family member about the hobby. I’ll be downloading a few of these as soon as I see them available and think you should too. Chime in with your thoughts about this deal down below in the comments section. Be careful out there my friends, stay healthy and wash your hands and maintain some social distance or just stay inside for the time-being. Let’s get past this.
