I definitely feel you there. I used to buy several long manga series, including Fairy Tail, physically until I moved 2 years ago and realized digital was the way to go with that stuff.

I still do end up buying a fair amount of physical manga though since sometimes the deals are cheaper for actual copies than for digital ones which is the point I am out no matter the storage issues I may have.

Thankfully Naruto and Bleach are finally over and Hunter x Hunter comes out at a snail's crawl, but One Piece alone will eventually take over a whole bookshelf all by itself. As much as I like Attack on Titan I went digital on it (unfortunately before this sale, which makes it even cheaper).

In my short time collecting digital, this DC Essential Graphic Novels might be the worst sale I've seen, with many titles only $3 off.

Also sales on Nova, Godzilla, and Matt Kindt Dark Horse. I wouldn't mind trying a volume of classic Nova for $5.

Dynamite has a new $14.99 bundle on Comixology with 30 singles - Masked Crime Fighters (The Phantom, Green Hornet, Miss Fury, Owl, Lady Zorro, etc).

https://www.comixology.com/Masked-Cr...le/bundle/1660

I think this has a bit of overlap with some of the previously bundles

Cool, I'll probably get that bundle. I read a healthy chunk of a recent Dynamite bundle, and missed the last one that would've had some overlap.

The Dark Horse Matt Kindt sale is great overall, but I highly recommend trying out his new series Ether. It's only two issues in with a third coming out soon but issue one is a buck right now.

Also picked up trades 2-4 of Priest's run on Black Panther.

New Image bundle. I own most of it on Comixology, but might still succumb.

Yeah. I knew it was coming, but still bought stuff on the Image 50% sale that is now included in the bundle. Hmmph.

Thanks for the heads up. I love Mind MGMT and Past Aways (one of the great disappointments of 2016 was Past Aways getting cancelled), but had no idea that Ether existed. I'll definitely check it out.

I'm in at $20 for the Humble Bundle, there's enough I don't have.

Huge bundle deal at Dark Horse. All 211 Buffy-universe books for just $99.99, tempting even though my digital backlog is already decades long.

Neither have I.

Though I did read most of his run back in the day.

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

There's a few more days left on the Injustice trade sale. It's a prequel to the game (which itself is getting a game and comic sequel, hence the sale) which is about an alternate universe where, surprise surprise, Superman turns evil and Batman has to stop him. Only read the first year of stories, which were originally released in digital chapters, but it was strong enough to go all in with the rest. As overused as that particular elseworlds concept is, I like it a lot, and being divorced from current continuity only helps it.

Pretty sweet deal but I already own most of it too. Most of the stuff I don't own just doesn't interest me.

Wow, two comic Humble Bundles at the same time. There's now a Tank Girl Bundle:

Another Aftershock sale that prices the comics at $1.99 which is the standard price of most of the companies back issue titles. I really like some of the titles from the company but I will only pick up a couple of issues from American Monster because I really like it. Everything else that I would have bought at 99 cents I am going to leave behind.

No 'Image Day' sale/acknowledgement on Comixology seems strange.

I kept waiting for a 99 cent sale on Shipwreck from Aftershock, by Warren Ellis and Phil Hester. Last week one of my local shops did all comics (even new that week) for $1 each, so I managed to pick them up there.

I was hoping for an Image day sale to get caught up on my series.

Seems like they have one every couple of months, though, at least for the more popular series. I know when I check there are usually only a couple of new issues that I didn't buy in the last sale...

Not really a Sale, but the new Walking Dead comic is offered for $0.25. I wonder if it will be further discounted in any upcoming Image sales given it's starting price.

Yeah, print as well. For the 25th anniversary of Image. Also, two issues this month.
