Today starts a two day sale from IDW on 50 'Hidden Treasure' graphic novels at half price. Some good stuff like The Rocketeer is in there. I'm intrigued by something called The Comic Book History of Comics; anyone familiar with this?

I have the hardcopy of the trade. I love it. It is VERY dense. So, you'll want to read it in pieces. I believe it was called "Comic Book Comics" in monthly form.

Nothing new today, the norm on Sundays I believe.

Today starts a seven day sale from DC on mainly Superman Grant Morrison stuff. Included are the first 18 issues of the new 52 Action, the 12 issues of All-Star Superman, and then first issues of 13 other Grant Morrison titles.

Also, Top Shelf is having another huge sale, lasting six days. It says 90+ books, but only 64 are listed so far.

Amazon is matching or doing the same/similar Grant Morrison sale. 99 cents for a lot of issues.

Yep, exact same issues, except Action 18 is still full price at Amazon. They've been matching lots of Comixolgy sales lately.

Oh, I must have missed it, when did Amazon's Kindle store start getting individual issues?

I think I'll have to pick up all the Morrisson action issues. Maybe I'll just go digital with New 52 series and pick them up during sales.

No new sales today, but that Top Shelf sale has some great stuff. Who was it that missed it last time, Supermallet?

The only Wednesday freebie I see so far is the usual DC preview.

It's usually worth checking out the Marvel app as well, because they do free books there that they don't list in the free section at Comixology.

This week it's Infinity War 1. But they don't list the new free books up at the top, they seem to list them by the date they were added digitally. So you'll need to look down through all the free options every week to find the new stuff.

I don't remember if I was looking for any Top Shelf comics in particular, but I'll give it a look, thanks!

Also, the free comics in Comixolgy are sometimes hidden under the separate publisher areas.

It wasn't this thread apparently, but someone here was pissed that they missed the 600 page $4 sales.

Well, for 600 pages, yeah, $4 is a good deal. On the other hand, it's Top Cow, so maybe not.

What's cool is that they had a sale on Captain Marvel not too long ago, so this time they put up issues that were after the run that had been on sale. I wish they did more of this.

No new featured sales today, but I did find an old (?) sale; all the DC New 52 issue #1s are 99 cents.

Only weekly freebie so far is the usual DC preview.
