Crisis on Infinite Sales
The DC Event & Mini Series Sale runs through Monday (12/14). It’s a little heavier on Events. For a somewhat recent title, Event Leviathan has made its to the discount zone. The Brian Bendis/Alex Maleev tale of a mysterious criminal conspiracy moving on DC’s spy organizations in preparation for a takeover was supposed to have a sequel, Event Leviathan: Checkmate that hasn’t been rescheduled yet.
DC’s best event in recent(ish) memory is probably Multiversity. Grant Morrison went about exploring the multiverse with Frank Quitely and a posse of A-list artists in tow. Not that the multiverse might suddenly be relevant at DC again or anything… This is a nice thick 450 page package, too.
Going back a hair further to the Before New 52 Times, Sinestro Corps War is probably the pinnacle of the celebrated Geoff Johns era on Green Lantern. This first GL event kept it tightly in the family with just Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps and an Event special.
The Merc with the Discount
The Deadpool Vs. The Marvel Universe Sale (Amazon link) runs through Sunday (11/13). The first thing you’re thinking when you read that sale name is probably Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe by Cullen Bunn and Dalibor Talajic. And you’d be right to think that. It’s the first thing listed on sale. There are several volumes of Cullen Bunn’s various Deadpool titles, as it happens.
The sale is made up of several of the “side” series Deadpool has had over the years… and that’s a fairly long list. For a couple alternate ideas, Deadpool Vs. X-Force is written by Duane Swierczynski with some relatively early Marvel art by Pepe Larraz, who’s certainly on the A-list today.
And if you’d like a bit of high concept snark, Deadpool’s Art of War by Peter David and Scott Koblish has the Merc with the Mouth in a get rich quick scheme involving translating Sun Tzü’ venerable tome and… things don’t go quite as planned.
Lots of Marvel still on sale in the bottom section.
Image lines up with a Spawn sale (Amazon link) through Thursday, 12/17. This is one very long series. The 20 volumes of Spawn Origins takes you through #122, then the titled volumes pick up a bit later in the series. Spawn#312 shipped a couple weeks ago, so Spawn has outlasted Cerebus.
Aliens and Predators on the Way Out the Door
Running until 12/31, Dark Horse has an Aliens Predator Sale (Amazon link). Since Marvel already has their first Aliens comic scheduled, its possible some of this material is going to be out of circulation for awhile. If you want bang for your buck, go with the Aliens Omnibus and Predator Omnibus lines. If you want something different… Archie vs. Predator by Alex de Campi and Fernando Ruiz. Yes, that’s real.
