Following the announcement of the comic-friendly update to Google Play Books earlier today, Google is making a swath of digital issues free for a limited time. The collection offers a number of #1 issues from series' such as The Walking Dead, Batman, Spawn, and Detective Comics for free. Of course, Google is probably hoping that if the first issue hooks you, you'll spend a bit of cash on subsequent issues.
On top of the initial batch of 44 free issues, Google says that readers should check back every Thursday for new deals. So, it looks like we may be seeing yet more free issues, or possibly some pretty good discounts in the future. If you'd like to check out the collection and pick up some free digital comics, hit up the link to Google Play Books below.
