Two new sales today. First is a one day sale from Marvel on Uncanny X-Men. Issues 468 thru 499 are 99 cents each.

Titan, most known for TankGirl perhaps, is having a weekend 99 cents sale on pretty much everything they have.

Today's Marvel Monday is a dozen or two issues, perhaps the entire Realm of Kings storyline.

Starting tomorrow DC is going to be giving away a free Digital First issue every day. It will be the first issue of each series.

Tuesday: Legends of the Dark Knight
Wednesday: Batman ’66
Thursday:The Vampire Diaries
Friday: Smallville Season 11
Saturday: Batman Beyond 2.0/Justice League Beyond 2.0
Sunday: Batman: Li’l Gotham
Monday: Adventures of Superman

I'll grab Smallville and the Beyond books. I have everything else except The Vampire Diaries, which I don't give a damn about.

As majorjoe said, those DC freebies started, and all seven are free right now.

Also, a three day sale from Image begins today, on Chew; all 30 issues plus the one shot for 99 cents each, with issue 1 possibly free, or the same in six collections for $4/5 each.

Also starting today, a three day sale from Dynamite on Garth Ennis collections; 14 different collections and issues 1-4 of Red Team.

Looks like no new sales today; but I did find a couple random freebie samplers in the new release, and the DC freebies deal is actually 8 titles.

I was a little confused by the DC freebies... they're all available now, right? Weren't they supposed to be timed release or something?

Yeah, according to the wording, it was supposed to be 7 books at one per day. But in the iOS app at least, all 8 are currently free.

Didn't they do that a few years ago? I was disappointed I missed it then. It is very tempting now...

All digital books at imagecomics.com are half off today. They're drm free PDFs if you buy them direct from Image, which I know is a plus for some, and a downside for Comixology fans.

No new Comixology deals today, just those two continuing sales.

This one will likely hurt my wallet. DC is having a Cyber Monday sale: all (?) 56 volume 1 new 52 collections are $4.99 each.

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

Today starts a three day sale on all the Fathom collections. This series has been around seemingly forever. I've always dismissed it as shallow teenage boy fantasy trifle, but honestly have never looked at it. Maybe I judged wrongly?

Today starts. A week sale from DC/Vertigo on all sixty issues of Scalped. Ashamed to say I've never heard of it. Wish they'd make the first issue free on these sales more often; seems a worthwhile gambit on the part of publishers.

Scalped is one of my favorite series of the last decade. It would be perfect as an HBO series.

This is cool, although I hate having my collection spread amongst multiple servers (let alone the whole physical versus digital conundrum!).

Lately it seems like Amazon just follows the Comixology sales, but this one appears unique to Amazon, or at least early.

Nothing new on Comixology today, just the usual couple middling freebies amongst the new releases.

Damn, already have a couple of these. Can anyone comment if the Thor books are any good?

No idea if the Thor books are any good, other than having heard good things about the J. Michael Straczynski run.

Starting in January Marvel is going to be doing a series of Marvel Now single issues. Each one that you buy (for $3.99) will get you a code for a complete digital collection.

I don't want to copy and paste everything, but the details are here:
