Would it be completely counter to the idea of free comic day if a store did something like: first five issues free, next five free with purchase of 10$-15$? I mean if all stores are capping issues anyway already, and ideally Free Comic Book Day stimulate sales and new customers for local shops, I feel like I wouldn't have a problem with my local shop doing this. But I'm at least a little conflicted about the idea.
Mind you, I'm not looking for more books for myself - I have a bunch of shops near me I could go to, and probably will anyway just to say 'hi' to people - but I feel like this might be something to reward the shops a little bit for participating in the day. Though, maybe the free comics should already be enough reward.
I don't know. Thoughts?
So far I'm loving the Marvel/Comixology and IDW/iVerse apps, but I'm not digging at all that there doesn't appear to be anyway for me to back up my comics locally. @gobo mentions that Comixology stores your purchases so you can redownload any purchase at any point in time, but I would really rather not have to rely on any website like that when I'm investing as much money in these books as I expect to.
So far today I haven't been able to log into the Marvel app or the Comixology app for a couple hours and some features on iVerse have been acting up on my for a couple minutes now. I assume this is just opening day server overload, but still, there's nothing to say this or something similar couldn't happen in the future. I would rather not have to worry about it and just have my books stored on my own computers.
