Today and Tomorrow (Wednesday & Thurs), Comixology is having a big sale on its Digital comics.

If you've any interest -- I'm going to be picking up Mark Waid's BOOM output for 99 cents an issue, 75% off of the print cover price -- you might want to head on over there.

Ok, so can I read said comics on my computer, or do I need an i-whatsit? Is the reader downloadable for free or what?

Can people outside the US buy downloadable comics from Comixology?

Adapting to new technologies makes me nervous...
Me too. I seem to be able to read the free books they offer fine on my computer, though. I don't have an iPad/Phone/Pony, either.

Let me know if it takes your order, if you decide to place one. I've tried twice so far and gotten an error message each time.

There are less titles available online as opposed to the mobile platforms but still lots of great stuff to choose from.

I haven't tried to place an order yet but will be doing so.
Wow. The changes they made to the website for the sale have messed things up. I can't log into my account which, of course, means I can't buy anything. The pages aren't appearing correctly, either. I'll send them a feedback message either through the website or their Facebook page.
I've been going back and forth with customer service, too. It's not letting me buy anything either -- I put in my CC info, and I get an error message.
Was finally able to place my order! Approx $100 of comics for $23! woo-hoo!
I was eventually able to make my purchase although their interface froze several times before I managed it. The suck-y part is that every time I had to refresh the screen to un-freeze it, I lost all the contents of my cart and had to start over again. I wish they'd tested the updated site more before making it "go live."

All in all, though, I'm happy about my purchases today. I continued some titles I was already buying from them and bought a few that I wasn't buying before.

Figs, I don't know if people outside the States can use the online version. There are a lot (somewhere around 200) free comics you can try the system out on, see if it works for you. The online reader.
Comixology has a 1-day Walking Dead half-off sale. 6-issue trades are $4.99, and single issues are 99 cents. (Looks like for the day, issues up through 84 are only available in trade).

So, how does the digital comic work? Am I buying and downloading the book or just paying for a one-time read?

I haven't really been up on digital comics but that seems to be where they are headed, what with paper costs and all. I also got a couple writing jobs for digital comic companies so I'm curious.

I just got an iPhone and decided to try out the digital comics. You pay to download the book and it's yours. It's not too bad but the iPhone, is a little small for reading the comics. I might do it if I'm curious about something before committing to it in paper. If I had an iPad, I might download more digital comics though. The bigger screen is easier to read.
On Comixology, you're buying the comic, but the file is in the cloud instead of downloading it. You'll need internet access to read it, but you can read it as many times as you want.
Comixology is having a 3-day sale of Mice Templar comics for 99 cents. I'll try to keep this thread updated whenever I see a sale worth commenting on.
