I update this thread everyday so none of us have to go anywhere else Fuji! Unless the sales look good of course, which all too often they do.

I plan on reading the Ellis free #1s tonight and then limiting myself to no more than two of the runs, if I like them of course.

Wish they would release Waid/kitson series Empire. I remember loving that one.

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

Two new sales at Comixology.

From Image/Top Cow a sale on Think Tank until 5/15/14.

Issues 1-12, or bundled for $10, 3 collections at $4, $6, and $6. The second collection apparently has a special issue not available here otherwise, making the purchase choice more complicated than it should be.

From DC we get a week long sale on 52, no bundle option.

The main 52 series, issues 1-52, #1 was/is free.
World War III 1-4
52 Aftermath: The Four Horseman 1-6
Black Adam 1-6

No new sales, freebies, or bundles today.

Fwiw, Comixology later added the missing Think Tank Military Dossier issue to the sale.

Six more of this year's FCBD books, and one from 2010 (!), just popped up for free on Comixology.

Does the publishing companies choose what goes on sale? Or is it comixology?

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

I got an email from Comixology saying that the Image app for iPhone & iPad is getting retired and they are launching a new one. A lot of the language in the email was identical to the email they sent out when they retired their app, so I downloaded the Image app to see what was different.

...The storefront & In-App purchases remain in the app! So it looks like they will be revamping their individual publisher apps, but those will retain the In-App purchases.

Comixology has a new sale, the first Saga collection for $2. But you all already own these issues or trade I hope.

New sale at Dark Horse: all of their 28 different comic book art books are $9.99 each. I'm thinking about getting the Hellboy, Grendel, and Alien/Predator ones.

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

Today's Marvel Monday is a couple of runs on the 2011 reboots of Ultimate Comics Ultimates 1-24 (w/ 18.1) and Ultimate Comics X-Men 1-23 (w/ 18.1).

The 52 and Saga and Sala sales are scheduled to end today. The Godzilla sale is at least temporarily still working, could be the common extension glitch or an actual extension I guess.

Another weird sale is 99 cents for the French version of the first 30 Days of Night collection.

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

Lots of updates today. No new freebies found at either Comixology or Dark Horse; but if you haven't looked at the Comixology bundles for awhile there are some new things there. Some of the older sales are still active via bundle.

Dark Horse has something called Tatooine Tuesday apparently. Is this new or have I been missing this for awhile? Today's deal is the 448 page Star Wars Omnibus: Rise of the Sith for $2.99. I'm not huge into Star Wars, but it's hard to resist that price.

Three sales at Comixology include one until 5/26 on four X-Men collections.
X-Men: Schism $3.99
X-Men: Second Coming $9.99
X-Men: Messiah Complex $9.99
X-Men: The Dark Phoenix Saga $5.99

Another weeker is from DC on Batman '66; all 33 issues at $.99 each.

And from Image, ending 5/22/14, a sale on Chew and Revival.

- a bundle gets you the first two collections of each for $20 instead of the separate sale price of $22
- the 3 Revival collections and 8 Chew collections are $4.99 to $7.99
- the 19 issues of Revival at $.99 each, #1 was/is free
- the 43 (40 plus some specials) issues of Chew at $.99 each, #1 was/is free

Darth Maul #1-4
Darth Maul: Death Sentence #1-4
Darth Vader & The Lost Command #1-5
Darth Vader & The Ghost Prison #1-5

Had to use my $5 gift card today before it expired. Scooped up some of the IDW Judge Dredd issues from IDW and a couple of Revival issues from Image. I only went out of pocket about $8.
