IDW Comics has released an UWP compatible app for Windows 10, Windows Phone 10 and Xbox One bringing their full catalogue lineup to the Windows 10 device family. To celebrate the launch of the app on Xbox One, you can download 10 specific volumes at no cost until the 7th April 2017.
The comics you can download for free are:
- TMNT Vol. 1
- Locke & Key Vol. 1
- Star Trek Vol.1
- Ghostbusters Vol.1
- Jem Vol. 1
- Fear & Loathing
- Transformers RiD Vol.1
- Transformers MTMTE Vol. 1
- Judge Dredd Vol. 1
There is a selection of free comics in the Store which you can access through the app so there is no need to stop reading if you don’t want to.
To download your free comics, simply download the IDW Comics app, register for an account, or login with your Live or DeviantArt accounts, if you don’t have one already and then go to the “My Books” section in the app and download.
The app doesn’t plan to just stop at offering comics either, IDW owned TV episodes and movies are planned later along with exclusive content.
Currently, there seems to be an issue obtaining the free 10 comics as they don’t show up in the app as seen in the Xbox One reviews for the app. We tried on Windows 10 PC, Windows Phone 10 and Xbox One versions of the app and didn’t see the 10 free comics either. We’ll update when we know more.
