SDCC 2015: comiXology announces show exclusives and giveaways

The biggest digital comic book reader on the planet, comiXology has collection of terrific giveaways on tap for the Con, as well as some panels that you won’t want to miss out on.

Located at booth #2547 on the show floor, comiXology will be giving away a limited mount of company-branded tees as well as Kindle Fire devices, which you can read their catalog of books on of course. Also featured at the booth will be a selection of print variant comics.

That kind of flies in the face of their whole ‘digital’ philosophy, but they’re cool (and also free), so don’t complain. The books are scheduled to be “Marvel Comics’ A-Force #2, Dynamite Entertainment’s The Spirit #1, BOOM! Studios’ Lumberjanes #15, IDW Publishing’s Onyx #1, Valiant Entertainment’s X-O Manowar: Valiant 25th Anniversary Special #1 and a special comiXology Submit version of Aw Yeah Comics! #1.” Oh, and if you’re not heading to San Diego this week, you can still get in on the fun with digital editions of all of the above on the comiXology app.

There’s also a very cool special shot at a free copy of Philip K. Dick’s novel Man in the High Castle that’ll be given away at the booth. The book sports a cover by Ted Naifeh and will be available during a signing at the booth by actor Luke Kleintank from the Amazon Studios upcoming TV show of the same name. Only 50 fans will be abel to get their hands on a copy, so get there early!

As for the rest of the scheduled happenings, scroll on down and get that calendar app out, you’re going to need it.
