    I've never really gotten into comics, but I snagged a handful of those that looked like they might be interesting, since they're free and a big part of never getting into them is simply that I've never really given any of them a try.

    It's always that way.. We who reside outside the US never get any of the Google promotions.

    It's really sad to see such amazing content geographically bounded

    Running a VPN on your phone doesn't work?

    When I try to access a Google Deal I get a message "Not Available In Your Region" and the deals are not displayed.

    When I use my VPN I can see the deals but when I log in with my Google account they know I'm not in the US and won't allow any deals or any product purchase..
