Digital Comics Pioneer ComiXology Celebrates 5th Anniversary and 3rd Year of iPhone App Success
Press Release – New York, NY – ComiXology — the revolutionary digital comics platform with over 75 million downloads to date and a selection of more than 25,000 comics and graphic novels — is kicking off this year’s Comic-Con International 2012 in style by celebrating their 5-Year Anniversary and 3-Year App-iversary with a whole host of programming, a “Tweetup,” two opportunities to win a free iPad, publishing partner promotions, and, for the first time ever, comiXology will be manning a booth (#2547) in the heart of Comic-Con!
The celebration of comiXology’s 5-year Anniversary and 3-year App-iversary begins on Preview Night at the debut of comiXology’s new booth space (#2547) and continues all convention long! All comic fans are invited to have a hands-on look at the leading digital comics platform and all fans that register for comiXology’s newsletter at the booth will have a chance to win a brand new iPad!
But the comiXology booth is only where the celebration begins! Each day from Thursday to Sunday, one of comiXology’s many publishing partners will be giving away one of four limited edition postcards that has a promo code for a free comic or graphic novel! Once all four cards are collected, a larger image is revealed celebrating comiXology’s anniversary!
How do you collect them all? First up on Thursday, Image Comics will be giving away the Fatale #1 promo postcard at their booth (#2729). Then on Friday, IDW Publishing will be giving away the Locke & Key Vol. 1 promo postcard at their booth (#2643).

Last but not least, on Sunday, Archaia will be giving away the Dark Crystal: Creation Myths Vol. 1 promo postcard at their booth (#2635). Each postcard is limited to just 1,000 copies and is available only at these publishers’ booths and only on the days listed above.
Don’t get distracted while you are busy collecting all those postcards and miss a rare chance to meet part of the team behind comiXology! On Thursday July 12th from 4pm to 6pm, all comiXology fans and new users alike are invited to join us for the official “ComiXology Tweetup” at the Hilton Bayfront Odysea Bar where attendees can meet and mingle with the folks behind the award-winning digital comics platform — comiXology co-founders David Steinberger and John D.
