In this week’s Comixology (at Amazon) sales, we’re stepping in to clue you in on what appears to be an unannounced Black Widow Sale.

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):


Adding some Batman links, since those were removed this morning.


We’re stepping in with a special Tuesday morning edition of .cheap because of the Marvel sale situation. No, there wasn’t one last week. We _think_ there was supposed to be some form of Wolverine sale last week. (For example, if you look at the listings for Old Man Logan, you’ll see that some, but not all of the volumes are discounted or at least still are when we’re typing this way early on Tuesday morning.)

What we’re seeing right now is a Black Widow sale. No, there’s no Black Widow listing on the deals page, yet. We surely hope there will be in a day or two, but since everyone we talk to is pretty salty about the Daredevil Legacy sale being broken (and we’re very glad it was fixed and re-run) and the lack of a sale on Deals page last week, we’re going to just jump in and list the sales we were able to locate:

Trick or Treat, Said the Widow to her Mate

No overall link for the sale, just individual series/volume links.

  • Black Widow: Marvel Team-Up – Mostly ’70s & ’80s appearances
  • Daredevil/Black Widow: Abattoir (’82) – OGN by Jim Starlin and Joe Chiodo
  • Black Widow (’10) – Duane Swierczynski, Marjorie Liu, Manuel Garcia, Daniel Acuña
  • Black Widow (’14-’15) – Nathan Edmondson/Mitch Gerads (Yes, the Mitch that now works with Tom King.)
  • Black Widow (’16-17) – Mark Waid / Chris Samnee, complete in one volume.
  • Web of the Black Widow (’19-20) – Jody Houser / Stephen Mooney
  • Black Widow (’20-’22) – Kelly Thompson/Elena Casagrande – Currently the first volume is much cheaper, then 2&3, but that might change. An Eisner winner.

What do we like here?  Waid/Samnee & Thompson/Casagrande jump out at us.

Black Widow by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee   Black Widow

Now… there may be more sale prices hitting later and we truly hope Amazon puts up a formal sale page for this that we can link to on Friday… but if not, the above are definitely on sale and now you now about them.

The Morning After the Bat-Sale

This one’s going to take minute to explain. On the evening of Monday, 9/18, the Batman Day Sale was extended through Monday 9/25.  On the morning of Tuesday, 9/19, the Batman Day Sale page was deleted. *Some* of the discounts are still there, some items are raised by about $1 and some are back to normal price. The older, pre-Crisis material is more likely to still be on sale.  And this could all have changed if you’re reading it later in the week, too. But here are the series links where we’re still seeing some kind of discounts:

  • Batman (1940-2011)
  • Detective Comics (1939-2011)
  • Batman: Shadow of the Bat – Alan Grant’s title, w/Norm Breyfogle, early on. (Get more of them in Dark Knight Detective/Caped Crusader)
  • Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight – standalone arcs by different creative teams, but consistently good
  • Batman: Streets of Gotham – Paul Dini’s in-continuity series w/Dustin Nguyen
  • The Brave & The Bold – Batman team-ups. Bob Haney, Neal Adams and Jim Aparo were notable creators here. Haney/Aparo was the team on a LOT of comics. (Now if we could get a Nemesis collection…)
  • Batman: The Dark Knight Returns – Frank Miller’s classic that upset the card table. $2.99 and your life will be fine if you miss the sequels.
  • Batman (’11-’16) – The Scott Snyder/Greg Capullo run
  • Batman (’16-current) – starts with the Tom King era and the discounts run through Joshua Williamson’s run
    • Save a couple bucks on the Tom King run with the “Deluxe” editions
  • Detective Comics (’11-’16) – originally Tony Daniels (how many printings did his first issue have?)
  • Detective Comics (’16-current) – Starts out with James Tynion’s first (and we’d say better) Batman run.
  • Batman: The Detective – Tom Taylor (sorta “Mr. DC” right now) and Andy Kubert take Batman to Europe where his past rears its head and some actual detection is performed. $2.99

There have been a lot of odd things happening on that deals page for the last ~6-8 weeks, so add the Mystery of the Disappearing Bat-Sale to the list.  We’ll see if something has changed at the end of the week at our usual time. It’s quite possible something will have.

So, until Friday:
