In this week’s Comixology (at Amazon) sales, DC has a Juneteenth sale and anything else new is unannounced… including the mystery of what’s going on with Marvel’s digital prices and whether they still have sales?

Where did the New Releases and Sale pages go?

(Disclosure: If you buy something we link to on our site, we may earn a commission.)

In case you’re having troubles with the new UIX (a LOT of people have been):

Buckle up for an unusual round-up. Amazon only posted one new sale and we had to do some serious scrounging… but it seems the deal page is not the end-all, be-all of listings this week.

The Sole *Announced* New Sale of the Week

Far Sector  Black Lightning  Hardware

The DC Juneteenth Sale runs through Monday, 6/24.

If we were going to pick one book out of this sale, it’s Far Sector by N.K. Jemisin and Jamal Campbell. A rookie Green Lantern is sent to a remote world on the far side of the universe where violence is unheard of… and encounters the first murder in anyone’s memory. You’ll be hard pressed to find better world building and Jemisin really nails her debut.

Also notable:

  • The Other History of the DC Universe – John Ridley / Giuseppe Camuncoli
  • The DC Universe by Dwayne McDuffie – If you don’t like McDuffie, there’s much we can’t help you with.
  • Black Lightning (’77-’78) – Initially, Tony Isabella / Trevor Von Eeden; $3.99 may be the lowest we’ve seen these priced. V.2 is the follow-on features in Detective and World’s Finest.
  • Hardware: The Man in the Machine – Dwayne McDuffie / Denys Cowan; The classic original Milestone arc, which is pretty darn accurate in it’s depiction of IP and non-competes. Tech workers, feel seen.
  • Icon Dwayne McDuffie / Mark Bright; Milestone’s original analog to Superman
  • Static – Dwayne McDuffie / Robert L. Washington / John Paul Leon; Long before the Static Shock cartoon…

Possible Unannounced Marvel Sales
Avengers, Inc.  New X-Men Predator versus Wolverine

We aren’t 100% sure what to make of this. As you may have noticed, there have been no new Marvel sales on the Deals page for two weeks. We did find a smattering of collections that appear to be discounted. Not quite the sort of discounts you’re used to seeing from Marvel and and a fairly random set, so maybe it’s an unannounced sale and maybe it’s not. We’ll leave that for you to decide.

The first one, we’re pretty sure it’s an unannounced sale and you might want to jump fast if you haven’t read it: New X-Men Modern Era Epic Collection: E Is For Extinction – As in 365 pages of Grant Morrison’s X-Men run with a pre-order price of $6.99? (Art by Frank Quitely / Leinil Francis Yu)  We aren’t sure how long that price is sticking around!

Past that… we see a few prices that are lower than we might normally expect and some just plain weird price points.

  • Avengers, Inc. Al Ewing / Leonard Kirk; The Wasp solves crimes out of uniform. Her sidekick? Someone has possessed the body of Whirlwind and she’s not quite sure who he really is. One of our favorite Marvel releases in recent months. We’re seeing the very odd price of $8.79 as we type this.
  • Daredevil: Black Armor– D.G. Chichester / Netho Diaz; Revisiting the time where horn head had that alternate costume. We’d put this as taking place shortly after Fall From Grace. We’re seeing $6.99 as we type this.
  • Ghost Rider V. 4: Rite of Passage – Ben Percy / Carlos Nieto; We’re seeing $6.99 as we type this.
  • Predator vs. Wolverine – Ben Percy / Ken Lashley / Andrea Di Vito; You’re groaning at the concept, but this was actually a very enjoyable miniseries. Yes, we were surprised, too, but there you are. We’re seeing the genuinely odd price point of $6.49 as we type this.
  • She-Hulk by Rainbow Rowell Vol. 4 – Rainbow Rowell / Jessica Gao; We’re seeing the oddest price yet, $7.19, as we’re typing this.
  • Star Wars: Dark Droids – Charles Soule / Leinil Francis Yu / Luke Ross We’re seeing $8.99 as we type this.
  •  Ultimate Invasion – Jonathan Hickman / Bryan Hitch; The setup for the new Ultimate Universe. We’re seeing $8.99 as we type this.
  • Uncanny Avengers: The Resistance  – Gerry Duggan / Javier Garron; We’re seeing $7.99 as we type this.
  • Wolverine Vol. 7 – Ben Percy / Juan Jose Ryp; We’re seeing $6.99 as we type this
  • Wolverine Vol. 8 – Ben Percy / Victor LaVelle / Geoff Shaw; We’re seeing $6.99 as we type this

We’re not completely sure what to make of the above. At minimum, there’s some noticeable variation in the Marvel digital pricing. Are they experimenting with an $8.99 / $6.99 new release price or are those sales? Unclear. Not everything starts at $8.99 and here’s the thing: you can change the digital list price just as easily as you can issue a digital sale price. We’ll have to see how all this develops. That X-Men Epic Collection, though? That’s a sale price, no matter how anybody wants to spin it.

Everything in the price box says “price set by the seller,” so we are forced to assume these odd price variations (and lack of deals page entries) are from Marvel and by design, as opposed to Amazon-initiated.
