Top Shelf Sale

Top Shelf and Comixology have teamed up to provide special deal to honor San Diego Comic-Con while also giving a nice gift to those of us who couldn’t make it to San Diego this weekend with new releases and a half off sale.

Now, I’m not going to sit here and give you a bunch of examples of things you should read and things you shouldn’t, because honestly Top Shelf books range in audience style. There are comics for adults that aren’t good for kids and there are books for little kids that aren’t going to be enjoyed by a lot of adults. And while not all of these comics are for everyone, there is something here for anyone.

Digital Comics Deal: Image’s #1 (2012) Sale

Image Comics Sale

Image Comics has put out a great deal of amazing comics over the past few months including books like America’s Got Powers, Fatale, Saga, and so many more, and it seems like I’m not the only one who’s noticed such events. The fine folks over at Comixology are currently running a 3-day digital sale on all of the number one issues during Image’s 20th Anniversary.

Most of the time when I write up these sales, I try to differentiate between the good and the bad to tell you all what you should avoid and what you must read. Well, things are a little different here as I strongly suggest you pick up as many of these as you can. Each one of these comics has a lot to offer to readers and by having only #1 issues available, it’s a great way to test the series. Now, if it were me, I’d have to say that you should read Mind The Gap, Saga, Fatale, America’s Got Powers, The Manhattan Projects, Secret, and Heart, but like I said before, you can’t go wrong with any of these.

So, what are you going to do? I’ll give you the answer, spend $20 dollars and buy the collected #1 download. It’s simple math, you should buy each one of these comics, but there are 23 comics at $1 a piece, so spend three dollars less and get all of them. Boom. Donezo.

Digital Comics Deal: Comixology’s Grant Morrison Sale

Morrison Sale

Oh my! Oh my! Comixology is having a Grant Morrison sale! For a mere 99 cents a piece, you can pick up several of Grant Morrison’s finest DC/Vertigo comics, including Doom Patrol, Batman, All-Star Superman, and more.

What’s the catch? Well, let’s get into that. Barely any of the comics on sale will provide you with a full story. While you may be teased by the mention of Batman R.I.P., Batman and Robin, and Batman Incorporated, the first thing you need to realize is that this isn’t the entire run. If you’re not reading Batman and Son or Club of Heroes, then the rest of this run won’t make any sense. But beyond that, the entire run of Batman and Robin that leads directly into Batman Incorporated is not in this sale. If you want to do that, you’re going to want to buy the regularly priced Batman and Robin #10-16. So, if you’re wanting to check this out, I really suggest you go back to Batman #655 and start from there and keep going. You won’t regret it, it’s one of the finest runs on Batman, for sure.

Digital Comics Deal: Celebrate Earth Day With ‘Swamp Thing’

Swamp Thing Earth Day Sale

Swamp Thing is a character who blurs the lines of regular man who looks like a monster, a straight up piece of vegetation that looks sort of like a man, and both of things but also an eco-terrorist of sorts, but no matter how you view the character, it’s impossible to deny the fact that some of the greatest writers in comics have either written him or his ancillary characters. Also, when he’s not questioning his identity, he’s a pretty eco-friendly dude. So, it’s with this fact that Comixology is offering a 99 cent three-day sale on Swamp Thing for this weekend’s Earth Day.

Comixology has recently made these sales more manageable if you don’t exactly know what you’re looking for and have places different comics into sections that categorize them more efficiently than just, “Here’s a bunch of comics that are on sale.” These different sections for Swamp Thing are:

Get A FREE Digital Copy Of Michonne’s Debut Issue In ‘The Walking Dead’

The Walking Dead by Tony Moore

Digital comic book retailer Comixology is offering a FREE digital copy of The Walking Dead #19, which features the debut of Michonne, one of the series’ most popular characters.

The sword-wielding badass from The Walking Dead was revealed in the last minutes of the television show’s season two finale last Sunday, and while many comic book readers were celebrating, others were left scratching their heads at the site of a woman in a tattered hooded jacket, holding a sword and leading two zombies on chains. Granted, the debut of the character was an awesome sight, but fans who haven’t read the comics have no idea of the significance of the character. Enter Comixology. Comixology and Skybound are not run by stupid people. Offering the debut of the character for free is a perfect way to bring in fans of the show to check what fans of the comic have known for years. Michonne is totally awesome.

The Walking Dead: Days Gone By

Comixology announced on Monday that, in conjunction with Skybound Entertainment, the online comics retailer will be offering a free digital download for The Walking Dead: Days Gone By to WonderCon attendees.

You’re going to be hard pressed these days to find many people attending a comic book convention that haven’t yet read the first collected edition of The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore, but if you are one of the poor souls who haven’t experienced the first chapter of this zombie apocalypse epic that spawned a mega-popular television show, or if you just want the the digital volumes, then this should definitely be on your radar. At this weekend’s WonderCon in Anaheim, CA, free downloads of the first volume of The Walking Dead will be available for the first 5,000 people that visit the Comixology booth (Booth #107).

Vertigo LogoVertigo Comics announced Wednesday that they’d be kicking off their brand new digital comics app with a 99 cent sale on all Sandman comics.

So, there’s two things going on here: DC Comics has split their Vertigo Comics imprint from the main DC Comics app to give all of the Vertigo titles a digital home. That’s right! New comics like Fairest, Saucer County, Domique Laveau: Voodoo Child and The New Deadwardians will all be going day and date digital, while established books like The Invisibles, American Vampire, The Unwritten, Fables and many, many more will also be making their way to the Vertigo-only app. Which is pretty cool.

Icon Sale

Icon, the creator-owned subsidiary of publisher Marvel Comics, has possibly one of the best stables of creators and comic book titles in their arsenal, and care of Comixology, you can catch up on titles like Criminal, Powers, Casanova, and more with a cool 20 percent off sale.

Yes, that’s right! You’ve seen the praise for Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips‘ creator-owned work on this site before, and that’s with good reason, as Criminal and Incognito are two of the most innovative works in their fields. Both comics completely suck you in to their gritty, crime-ridden world setting and tell a story that is simply unforgettable. I even suggested that you catch up on Criminal on this past week’s GoD List, so if you for some reason weren’t listening to me, here’s your perfect opportunity. There’s not a single issue of Criminal or Incognito for over the price of $1.50. What are you waiting for?
