comiXology Heads to Baltimore and You Can Get The Walking Dead Vol. 1 for Free

Baltimore Comic-Con is shaping up to be the fantastic show I’ve come to expect. ComiXology returns to the show and will be giving away free digital comic codes for The Walking Dead Vol. 1 at their booth, #1403. The company is also sponsoring the annual Harvey Awards.

Following the wildly popular promotional giveaways at WonderCon ’12, Emerald City Comicon ’12 and C2E2 ’12 earlier this year, comiXology is teaming up once again with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s Skybound, to make this year’s Baltimore Comic-Con unforgettable for comic fans by giving them a free “taste” of the first graphic novel — regularly $8.99 for 140 pages — that the hit The Walking Dead TV show is based on.

This time around the first 500 Baltimore Comic-Con attendees to come by comiXology’s booth will receive a limited edition promotional postcard imprinted with a unique download code redeemable for The Walking Dead Vol. 1 exclusively on comiXology.com in exchange for an email sign up.

In addition to the must-have The Walking Dead Vol. 1 giveaway, comiXology will be providing hands on demonstrations of the comiXology digital comics platform at their booth all weekend long. Fans should not miss their chance to get a look at the new 3.1 iOS upgrade that includes the new CMX-HD digital comics format for the new iPad.

All Baltimore Comic-Con attendees are invited to join comiXology co-founder John D. Roberts alongside Power Play artist Reilly Brown and Valentine creator Alex De Campi for the “Creating Comics the ComiXology Way” panel on Saturday, September 8th at 1pm in Room 302-303 to discuss how comiXology is transforming not only how people read comics, but how people create comics.

The annual Harvey Awards will once again take center stage at this year’s Baltimore Comic-Con thanks in part to comiXology. This year’s ceremony honors the industry’s top talent as chosen by their peers and comiXology is proud to be once again share the honor of sponsoring such a magnificent event.
