While it may not seem that reading comics includes much reading, the Sunday funnies and comic books provide such pleasure to kids that they’re the perfect way to encourage more reading at home. Parents who cherish reading favorite comic books on digital devices or young readers who share their love will be interested to know that comiXology.com, is currently offering 700 free titles for download.
The free downloads include favorites such as Avengers, Captain America, Fantastic Four, Hulk, Spider Man, Thor, Wolverine, X-Men, and Iron Man. Comic fans can also look for titles sorted by genre such as Marvel Events, Marvel Heroes, and Marvel Zombies. I couldn’t tell how long this offer is good so visit and download titles soon to take advantage of this great deal.
