ComiXology is one of the quickest growing comic distribution companies in the world. The company recently hit the 200 million download milestone and many industry experts agree that it is only a matter of time before they are the target of an acquisition attempt. To prepare for the holidays ComiXology has just announced the launch of their new eGift Card program.
The cards are bought online and are emailed out to the target. There are cards available from $10 to $500 or set your own gift value. ComiXology eGift Cards are redeemable to purchase single issues or graphic novels on their main website or via their multitude of mobile apps. The Gift cards last forever and have no hidden fees or expiration dates.
This may be a cool gift idea for people who are inept in buying real presents. I mean what little boy wouldn’t love the ability to pick his own comics out with some digital cash?
