SDCC 2013: ComiXology’s Giveaways & Events

ComiXology has been building up to San Diego Comic-Con with their “Meet Your Makers” events, but that has been revealed to be a part of their “Take Comics Further” campaign. That’s their new ad campaign and tag line that will make its debut at SDCC and then to be taken globally. You can find the digital comics platform at booth #2547.

To celebrate the unveiling of the “Take Comics Further” ad campaign and the new tag line, each day at Comic-Con International the first 100 fans that come to the comiXology booth will receive a free t-shirt sporting one of the ad capmaign’s more humorous slogans.
