“The Darkness” Comic Book iPad App: First 6 Issues Free Until the end of Today

comiXology launched another of their branded digital comic book apps this past weekend. This time it is Top Cow’s The Darkness which first appeared in 1996. The story is about a former hitman who possesses an ancient elemental force named The Darkness. More than 50 issues are available in the new app. And, issues #1 through #6 are free until the end of today (Oct. 17, 2011). Each issue is normally priced at $1.99.

The Darkness App Launches on iPhone and iPad

If you have an account on any of comiXology’s comic book apps (DC, Marvel, its own comiXology and others), you can use the account used for any of those apps with the new The Darkness app. And, you’ll be able to see and read The Darkness comic books in the comiXology app (with the same login account).

If you have never read this comic book series, the free first six issues is a $12 savings right away. But, you need to download, install the app and grab those six issues before today ends.
