Over in Austin, Texas, at the SXSW festival, comic giant Marvel has announced a bumper digital giveaway: 700 of its #1 comic issues - including the likes of Spiderman, X-Men, Hulk and the Fantastic Four - are available for free on iPad, iPhone and Android devices.

The #1 issues are all available through Marvel's ComiXology app for both Google and Apple's mobile platforms. The incredible giveaway (prices are usually 69p to £2.49) is in full-swing now and runs until 4am on Wednesday UK time.

The giveaway also extends to the desktop browser version of the Comixology website, although good luck getting it to load at present - it seems to have crashed under the strain of comic book fans looking for some first issue action.

Here's what Twitter thinks...

@saracollaton
want the 1st issue of every marvel comic? @comiXology is giving them away for free!

@McKelvie
Marvel are giving away hundreds of #1 issues until tomorrow, on comixology and their own online store. So many great comics to check out. 

@stonemtn
Thanks to all for your patience. @comiXology team is working non-stop. If you get a “download error” your purchase has been recorded.

@trioptimum
Can’t wait for the Comixology press release: ‘Marvel’s free comics promotion results in over 4 downloads’.
