Today only from Marvel, a Dark Avengers sale.

Luna Brothers sale (and a few others) ends today. I read the previously free first issues of a few of their series and it was great stuff.

I wish you could buy the God is Dead issues for 99 cents each. I'm really only interested in the Hickman-written issues.

I was thinking the same thing. But, fwiw, in scanning reviews his issues were rated lower than the other writer.

I think IDW is one that I'd never pay full price on, as their stuff has been Humble Bundled and put on sale all the time.

No Afterlife with Archie, unfortunately. Many of the comics are actually digests, so you're actually getting a lot more than 100 comics.
Great find, thanks! I wish their app was more like Comixology in that you could buy/claim an issue and download it later. As far as I can tell, you can only download, which makes me wonder whether I can access my collection from different devices, etc. I downloaded almost everything and then had to delete some other stuff from my phone to accommodate.

Thanks for the heads up. Are any of those Batman Arkham books really good?

Re: Digital Comic Book Discussion and Deals (Comixology, etc)

The ones based on the Arkham games are always 99 cents. So you don't really need to rush on those.

Re: Digital Comic Book Discussion and Deals (Comixology, etc)

Through 8/17, Ed Brubaker's Fatale is on sale
99 cent issues (1-23. The final issue, 24 is still $4.99)
The collections are also discounted:
Vol 1 - 4.99
Vol 2 - 5.99
Vol 3 - 6.99
Vol 4 - 7.99

The best deal of them all though, is the complete series bundle, issues 1-24 for $24.99. This works out to about $1.09 an issue, including the final issue which is $4.99 separately. (Although Issue 1 has been free in the past, so if you already have it, you have to factor that into the math. You still come out a dollar or two ahead with the bundle)

---

Also, there is a World War Hulk sale.
The following issues are 99 cents each
World War Hulk Prologue: World Breaker
World War Hulk #1-5
World War Hulk: Frontline #1-6
World War Hulk: Gamma Corps #1-4
World War Hulk: X-Men #1-3
Heroes For Hire #11-14
Avengers: The Initiative #4-5
Irredeemable Ant-Man #10
Iron Man: Director of SHIELD #19-20
Ghost Rider #12-13
Incredible Hulk #106-111
Punisher: War Journal #12
World War Hulk Aftersmash: Warbound #1-5
World War Hulk Aftersmash: Damage Control #1-3
What if? World War Hulk

The bundle of the above issues is also on sale for $44.99.
Note: The link on the main page of comixology to the bundle is dead at the moment. You have to find it through their search.

Re: Digital Comic Book Discussion and Deals (Comixology, etc)

As always, the below is simply cut and pasted to all my comic sites, so no disrespect intended to those of you who have already posted some of the below.

World War Hulk sale until 8/17/14.
https://www.comixology.com/World-War..._War_Hulk_Sale
They have a bundle option of all 46 issues, although 10 of them have been free previously, so this bundle may not be your cheapest option.
https://www.comixology.com/World-War-Hulk/bundle/782

Fatale sale until 8/17/14; all 24 issues individually, in 4 collections, or in a bundle; issue 1 was/is free.
https://www.comixology.com/Fatale-Sa...ge_Fatale_Sale
Here's the bundle link:
https://www.comixology.com/Fatale/bundle/781

That Humble Bundle of Boom has added a bunch of comics, it's over 100 issues now.

One new freebie at Dark Horse this week, a couple new ones lately at Comixology; so check those sections if you're interested.

Re: Digital Comic Book Discussion and Deals (Comixology, etc)

If you're getting Fatale, I would suggest the issues over the collections. The issues Often have essays in the back with extra art by Sean Phillips, which aren't in the collections.

Re: Digital Comic Book Discussion and Deals (Comixology, etc)

Thanks for the sale news Bob, and for that tidbit Joe. It's always a pain in the butt to figure out which are more complete, singles or collections. Sometimes you 'need' both to have everything, curse my OCD.

Nope, thy developed their own app from the beginning to avoid giving fees to Comixology.

Re: Digital Comic Book Discussion and Deals (Comixology, etc)

So I read a few of the free #1s from the sales ending today and tomorrow; and unfortunately I liked them all.

The World War Hulk stuff wasn't great, but I owned enough of it and used to collect the book, so I took the plunge.

Fatale #1 intrigued me enough to buy the bundle; although I was expecting a bit more from the rave reviews.

And Judge Dredd has always interested me, with this IDW series maybe being a good 'starting' point. I haven't bought it yet, anyone here read the series?

Re: Digital Comic Book Discussion and Deals (Comixology, etc)

Is that IDW series based in the movie world, or is it connected to the other comics?

I think it's kind of an Ultimate Dredd.

The IDW Dredd series (all of them) are pretty cool.

Re: Digital Comic Book Discussion and Deals (Comixology, etc)

Today's Marvel Monday is called Marvels Project Sale and includes:
The Marvels Project 1-8
The Twelve 1-12
Marvel 1985 1-6

All three appear to be the sort of re-imaginings I typically enjoy; overused as they are.

Comixology needs to stop having sales.
