A JSA sale? My poor wallet. All these DC sales just remind me how much I loved the pre new 52 DC Universe

I haven't read much JSA since the 1980s, but hear great things about the Johns run, among others. My OCD wants me to start from the beginning and read all my DC books in chronological order.

Let's see, maybe 9000 books, read ten a day, in three years I'll be caught up!

Or do I do Marvel first, saving the best (DC) for last? And what about the independents?

And when is the last time I read ten books a day for more than one day in a row? 1979 probably. I think I need to live forever to get thru my backlog.

The Johns/Robinson era was amazing (though I think it loses steam). I already have the three omnibuses, but I'm still tempted to get them digitally. I wish they included even more (Infinite Inc. and Young All Stars), I would have bought them all...

The first ten issues of Infinity Inchave been on sale before, but the rest of the original run isn't even available yet.

Me too. Loved the first issue, bought them all, haven't returned. Story of my comic life all too often.

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

JSA? Oh, what to do. I have the entire run of the Robinson/Johns series in a mixture of trades and floppies, but I've been wanting to pick up the omnibi, as I really can't imagine ever reading floppies again at this point. But with this sale, I can pick up pretty much the entire contents of the 3 omnibi for the cost of 2. Decisions, decisions.

Does anyone want to sell me on the 2007 Justice Society relaunch? I bailed on buying new comics right when that series started and have never read it. Whether or not I go digital or omnibus might depend on how interested I am in owning that material.

That was the relaunch still written by Johns, right? It felt like a natural continuation of his run.

Thanks! I hope this is one that I resist. The IDW stuff goes on sale fairly often, and I already own about 75% of this on Comixology. What's left and what will be added later will probably pass the break even point versus future Comixology sale prices; but I think this once I'll just stick to one source for my Mulder/Scully comics fix. Wish me luck gang!

Are the comics any good? Haven't tried any, myself.

I made it through most of the first episode of Jessica Jones this morning. It's good so far.

Podcast discount code of the week is POSSUMPOD for 50% off the first collection of Penguins versus Possums. Looks cute, I'll get it for, er, my daughter, yeah, that's why.

I don't know how old your daughter is, but when you said it looks cute... well, when I did a search, that wasn't exactly what I was expecting...

DC's weekly sale is on Frank Miller Batman books; four $6.99 collections and twenty-one $.99 singles until 11/29/15.
The Dark Knight Returns 1-4 and collection
The Dark Knight Strikes Again 1-3 and collection
Batman: Year One (Batman 404-407) and collection
All-Star Batman and Robin, The Boy Wonder 1-10 and collection

From Dynamite, a Garth Ennis sale until 11/27/15 that includes a Jennifer Blood bundle.
https://www.comixology.com/Garth-Ennis-Sale/page/8873
The Boys: three omnibi at $17.99 to $19.99 and 12 collections at $3.99 to $8.99; best option debatable, complex math/bonus content iirc
Battlefields: two omnibi at $7.99 each and six collections at $2.99; both options collecting all issues, but the first option has bonus content and is cheaper
Jennifer Blood: volumes 1-3 at $4.99 each, collecting issues 1-18; and a bundle of issues 1-36 for $24.99

Rumor is that DC will offer B1G1F on Cyber Monday. Anyone have three thousand dollars I can borrow?

Please don't be true... please don't be true... loading up wishlist now.

Edit: DC needs to calm down on those older-ish $3.99 annuals... surprised they are still so high in price versus the same era $1.99 standard issues...

Do you know what's odd? The one series I've kinda been hoping for a digital sale on, just to try it out... is Archie, the new one by Waid. I never thought in a million years I'd be saying that about Archie.

Yeah, I spent the last two hours loading up the wishlist, and way too much of their backstock is above $1.99.

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

I think my big spending will be on Dark Horse, assuming they have their sale. I've got a lot of Usagi Yojimbo to buy, along with some Goon and Hellboy/BPRD.

Thanks for reminding me. Working on details to sell a kidney now.

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

The thing with Dark Horse is that I'm spoiled by the yearly sale. So why buy anything at other sales, and because of the backlog, why buy stuff I haven't gotten around to yet if it'll be on sale next year too? The main exception was the Star Wars stuff. Not that I want them to stop, and I probably will buy some more Groo and maybe Usagi (since they don't seem to want to continue hardcover collections).

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

20% off ($55.20 total cost) a Marvel Unlimited membership, code is TREAT

Just got an email from them, very very tempting. New and cancelled subscribers only.

Aaand... gift subscriptions do not apply. Shoot, I would totally give this as a gift. Merry Xmas to me, I guess.

edited to add: mistakenly read it as $20 off, but it's 20% off, so fixed
