Comixology Sales: The Final Black Friday Deals Roundup and Recommendations

It’s Black Friday time at Comixology, so we’re pulling all of the week’s posts into this master list, so you can have all the recommendations in one place. Since Comixology keeps threatening to merge their site into Amazon, we’ll toss in an Amazon link for the sales that Amazon has provided one. Amazon is not good about linking to individual sales.

Yes, there’s a lot of things to look at… as you’d expect on Black Friday.

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

Marvel Has the Best Deals

The Marvel Epic Collection Sale runs through Sunday, 12/05. (Amazon link for the sale)

$3.99 Epic Collections.  Figure all of them that are older than ~6 months from debut. Since most of those collect around 20 issues, we’re serious about that 20 issues for the price of 1 headline.  ~80%-89% off, depending on list price.  If you like Marvel, this is a SPLENDID time to fill in the holes in your collection, so do some browsing.

Some suggestions?

Conan is on sale less often than other Marvel titles, so if you like the Cimmerian, you might want to grab these first. Two runs are here: The Conan Chronicles is the title for the collections of Dark Horse material. That starts out with a very strong Kurt Busiek/Cary Nord run, followed by Tim Truman tagging in as writer and adding Paul Lee and a few other to the artist rotation. Recommended for barbarian fans!  Conan the Barbarian is the classic Marvel run. Scroll down to the Collected editions on the series page for the Roy Thomas/Barry Windsor-Smith/John Buscema/Gil Kane/Neal Adams classic. This one needs no introduction.

Conan Chronicles   Conan the Barbarian

Seriously, take a good browse through this sale.  It’s hard to go wrong with ~400-500 pages for $3.99. We will make one small suggestion: you can get the widely-loved, yet under-hyped Ann Nocenti/John Romita, Jr./Al Williamson Daredevil run across three volumes and that’s sure worth a look. (This is where Typhoid Mary debuts, among other things.

Slings and Arrows…

The Marvel Hawkeye Sale also runs through Sunday, 12/5. (Amazon link for the sale)

This one is of a similar flavor to the Epic sale. You remember the Matt Fraction/David Aja (with special guest appearance by Steve Lieber) Hawkeye series that was all the rage a few years back an inspired the Disney+ series that’s about to debut? $0.99 for the first collection, $1.99 each for the rest.  It’s good AND it’s cheap. What more do you want?

We also particularly recommend the Steve Englehart Avengers West Coast run, but you’re better off with the Epic Collections with those (and the rest of the run, where available.)

Hawkeye   Avengers West Coast

Marvel has two other sales that fall into the more common ~60-67% off range, Both running through Sunday, 11/18.  We’d say hit the Epics and Hawkeye before you venture further — those are the holiday discounts!

  • The Marvel Latest and Greatest Sale (Amazon link)is an eclectic set of releases. There is a little bit of Conan – old and current – sprinkled in at random, if you’re seeking that.
  • The Champions Sale is for both the 70s and current incarnations of Champions. To illustrate our point about where the deals lie this week, The Champions Classic: The Complete Collection is the same size as an Epic Collection, but will run you $3 more.

Lowest Prices for Indie Comics ($0.99 Collected Editions)

Yes, comics reader – we know you love the race to the bottom when it comes to sale prices and there are some publishers that are catering to that love for $0.99 digital trade paperback collections.  Those same publishers are offering the next few volumes in a series for $1.99 each. That’s a really good, coming close to the Marvel Epic deal.  We even have some favorites to look for as we wade through this.

Hasbro and Friends

The IDW Best of Sale (Amazon version) runs through Monday, 11/29 and features some of the usual suspects (Dungeons & Dragons, GI Joe, Transformers, My Little Pony, Sonic the Hedgehog and Star Wars) at $0.99 for the first Volume and $1.99 for subsequent volumes.

Transformers: Classics

Spies & Monsters

The Best of Oni & Lion Forge Sale follows the same pricing formula and runs through 12/3.  Among the handful of feature titles are some that we hold in very high regard at The Tower of Cheap. (Amazon link)

Queen & Country by Greg Rucka and a new artist every storyline is probably the best American spy comic… even if it’s set in the UK and is an homage of sorts to an old UK TV show called “The Sandbaggers.” Highly Recommended

Kaijumax by Zander Cannon is a tale about a supermax prison for giant monsters. Think Godzilla and his foes. Does this sound cute and campy? It’s actually quite the opposite. It’s gritty with prison gangs, smuggled drugs and assassination attempts… with giant monsters.  A unique comic that’s also Highly Recommended.

We wouldn’t sleep on Stumptown or Letter 44 either.

Queen & Country   Kaijumax 

Prices Go BOOM!

The Best of BOOM! Sale runs through Thursday, 12/2.

We’re big fans of Once and Future, a paradoxically light and breezy horror/dark fantasy adventure by Kieron Gillen and Dan Mora wherein old myths and legends are arising to herald the return of Arthur… who’s not a fan of all the foreign blood floating around modern Britain. It’s hard to make such a dark premise fun-first, but Gillen and Mora do it with aplomb.

Dune: House Atreides has seen a bump with the movie release. This is Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson adapting their prequel novel with Dev Parmanik on the art. This would be the tale of young Leto Atreides and the secret origin of Duncan Idaho.

Once & Future   Dune: House Atreides

A Universe

The Best of Valiant Sale runs through Thursday, 12/2 and – that’s right – $0.99 for V.1 and $1.99 for the rest. (Amazon link)

This is also a bit of a starter sale as the early years are highlighted here. Lucky you, these are all solid SF/F adventure comics with superhero trappings.  Harbinger is very similar to X-Men with a teens on the run twist… but much darker. We’d probably call it the center of the Valiant Universe’s beginnings. X-O Manowar‘s elevator pitch is “what if Conan was abducted by aliens, stole Iron Man’s armor and then returned to Earth in modern times?” It’s the flagship book and fun.

Harbinger   X-O Manowar

The Rest of the Rock Bottom Pricing Club

The Dynamite Artbook Sale runs through Thursday, 12/2 and is $0.99/per book. These usually go for $25 or so. (Amazon link)

The Art of The Boys

The Best of Mad Cave Studios sale runs through Monday, 12/29.  We really aren’t familiar with Mad Cave, but $0.99 collected editions is a great way to get our attention. We can’t recommend anything specifically, though.

Honor and Curse

I See a Friday and I Want It Painted Black

The DC Black Friday Sale runs through Monday, 11/29.
(Amazon link if you prefer that)

Glancing through this sale, which is a smaller set of books than others, we’re seeing a discount range of 69%-75%, which is definitely on the high side for DC.  Not quite up to the Marvel standard or independent $0.99/$1.99 scheme, but up there for what they’re offering.

A lot of the usual suspects are on sale, but for some suggestions:

We always through Sinestro Corps War was the peak of the Geoff Johns era of Green Lantern.

Longtime readers know that we appreciate Tom Taylor around these parts. One of the first times he made us raise an eyebrow and say “this shouldn’t work as well it does — how did he do that?!?” was the video game adaption of Injustice: Gods Among UsWe especially like his Green Arrow. Mike S. Miller & Jheremy Raapack provide the art and later Bruno Redondo… yes, the same fellow on Nightwing with Taylor.  Comics work like that sometimes.

And finally, we’re a bit after that holiday, be Batman: The Long Halloween is still our favorite of the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale collaborations. For those new to the series, it has Batman chasing a serial killer who strikes each month on a holiday, as DA Harvey Dent starts to spiral…

Green Lantern - Sinestro Corps War   Injustice: Gods Among Us   Batman: The Long Halloween

Image Organizes a Sale

The Image Graphic Novel Sale runs through Monday, 11/29.

This is pretty much their full digital catalog at half-off. If you’ve been meaning to try something and the tpb is at least a few months old, go digging for it.

Some recommendations?  Sure!

Fatale was the comic that brought Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips to Image. When it blew up, those two had a new trajectory. It was an important book for both the publisher and the creator. More importantly, it’s a good comic. A bit of a genre-bender adding horror to the noir formula as a reporter stumbles into a feud between immortals: a mysterious beauty who leaves a trail of dead suiters and mobster whose humanity is very much in question.

Another Image title we’d consider complimentary to Fatale is Ghosted by a pre-DC stardom Josh Williamson, Goran Sudzuka and Miroslav Mrva. Its first arc was promoted as “Ocean’s 11 meets The Shining,” with a team of thieves hired to steal a ghost from a haunted house. While the criminal element stays for the long haul (pun intended), this one dives into some deeper occult horror after the first volume and is a nice little package. We also like that the volumes of this one are a little cheaper than some of the current offerings.

Saga is due back soon and it occurs to us that it’s been on hiatus long enough, not everybody has read it.  If you haven’t yet, it’s probably time to get caught up. This Brian K. Vaughan / Fiona Staple title is a masterclass in worldbuilding. Let’s be clear – Staple’s design sense is a BIG part of how immerse Saga can be. The tale itself is not complex: star-crossed lovers of warring races have a child and go on the run, as both sides would like to destroy the evidence of what’s happened. It’s cast of characters that makes the book. Scientists, magicians and a lot of bounty hunters. The unusual… appetites of Prince Robot IV. A ghost. Spaceships that grow like trees.  Saga is its own beast and well worth your time.

And finally, one of Image’s recent hits. $3.99 for the first volume of The Department of Truth is worth taking a flier on if you haven’t already. James Tynion IV (no relation to Prince Robot IV) and Martin Simmonds spin an X-Files-ish tale about willing conspiracies into reality through the power of belief. Creepy and oddly current… but with historical through-lines.

    Saga   Department of Truth

Is It a Turkey?

The “Dark Horse Turkey Five Sale” runs through Monday, 11/29 and comes in three parts: 1 ( graphic novels, 300 – The Last of Us), 2 (graphic novels The Legend of Korra – Zombie World; single issues 47 Ronin – Hellboy) and 3 (single issues, Hellboy – Zodiac Starforce).

Graphic novels are 50% and single issues are $0.99.

What’s interesting? Let’s avoid the usual suspects this time.

Dark Horse has always been good at anthologies and Dark Horse Presents gets a lot more interesting when it’s $0.99 per issue. Good creators, real variety and those early issues are 80+ pages, so good value. We just wish we could figure out where they put the first issue!

If you want to go old school, there’s always The Complete Elfquest by Richard and Wendy Pini. One of the original Direct Market titles, it’s an acknowledged classic. The elves are burned out of their home by the humans and so begins the quest. (Which is to say nothing of the trolls.)

Finder by Carla Speed McNeil has been running under the radar for ~20 years, but the most recent graphic novel, Chase the Lady, came out in June. This is a very anthropological science fiction series where cultures play a central role. The lead character for most of the journey is Jeager, a sin eater and “Finder” whose abilities to track things and appear anywhere are almost as mysterious as the past he can’t remember.  It’s been around 20+ years for a reason and is worth a look.

Nexus by Mike Baron and (mostly) Steve Rude is a science fiction adventure with superhero trappings that dates back to the 80s, but still pops up once in awhile. The omnibus editions go back to the beginning and are definitely where you should start. Horation Hellpop dreams of murders and the nightmares won’t stop until he’s murdered the murderers. The alien Merk has granted him cosmic powers and the title of Nexus. This is set against a political backdrop as the independent planetoid where Hellpop lives struggles to remain free of the Sov Empire, the religious fanatics of the Elvonic Brotherhood and slave traders. Plus… Judah the Hammer.

Comixology Sales: The Big Black Friday/Cyber Monday Roundup – DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, Viz, Dynamite and much more

The Black Friday Comixology sales are locked in and most of them are running through Cyber Monday.  And there are a lot of them. We’re going to be running through them a little more quickly than usual, though you can go back to the previous two columns for more depth on select sales.

Since we’ve gotten requests for it, there are now links to the Amazon versions of these sales. Amazon and Comixology are in the same ecosphere, after all.

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

DC’s ~2,400 Graphic Novels Sale

DC’s Black Friday deal is in three parts and the whole thing has it’s own page. (Amazon version)  Last time we talked about some titles from the $4.99 section of the sale, since DC doesn’t go under $5.99 with great regularity unlike other publishers. Today let’s take a quick look at the rest of the sale.

22 out of 23 volumes of the Vertigo version of John Constantine, Hellblazer are on sale for $5.99/$6.99.  Those haven’t all been on sale at once in a while and there’s a reason the series ran so long.

Batman Universe by Brian Bendis and Nick Derington really didn’t make a splash when it it came out, which is a shame.  This is a FUN Batman title (yes, that’s possible) as the caped crusader finds himself chasing<spoilers> through time and space.  There’s a little old school The Brave and the Bold in it with lots of guest stars and the banter/bickering with Alfred is well done. Lucky you, it’s 59% off.

For an old school option, Jack Kirby’s New Gods is a classic and one of DC’s better values with 424 pages for your $6.99.  2,400-ish graphic novels for you to browse before Cyber Monday ends, so get to it.

Hellblazer   Batman Universe   New Gods by Jack Kirby

The Marvel Deals

The Dawn of X Sale (Amazon Version) – We had plenty to sayabout the Dawn of X collections on Monday.  Short version – the anthology reading format is interesting and has merit.

House of X / Powers of X

The Marvel Earth Shattering Events Sale (Amazon Version), modestly named as it, runs until Thursday 12/3. We spoke a little more about it last Monday, too.  Short version: if you go old school like Kree/Skrull War, Armor Wars or Asgardian Wars, the plots are a little more contained.

X-Men: Asgardian Wars

Dark Horse, Part 2

Last time out, we talked about some of the goodies in Part 1 of the Dark Horse Graphic Novel Sale.  This time, we’ll look at Part 2, as promised.  (Amazon has all the Dark Horse material in one link.)

Possibly the greatest samurai manga of all time Lone Wolf and Cub by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima is a great value.  Most of these volumes are around 300 pages for the sale price of $2.99.  A disgraced executioner bides his time as an assassin while seeking revenge on those who framed him, all while caring for his 3 year old son.  (Be aware, there are very graphic sword fights in this.  It’s not a YA title.)

Kabuki is David Mack’s critically acclaimed saga of a Japanese government assassin caught in a struggle between her agency and the yakuza.  At 360+ pages for $4.99, these are also good buys.

Light Brigade is Peter Tomasi’s and Peter Snejbjerg’s tale of WWII U.S. soldiers who find themselves charged with recovering the Sword of God before the Nazis and Fallen Angels get their hands on it. An excellent comic that’s largely flown under the radar.

Lone Wolf and Cub x Kabuki x Light Brigade

The Big Comixology Sale Roundup

The Image Black Friday Sale (Amazon version) we discussed last time. It feels like their full digital library is on sale from the recent Brubaker/Phillips Pulp to years of Spawn and Savage Dragon.  The best bang for your buck might be the massive Walking Dead and Invincible Compendiums.

Paper Girls

The Dynamite Black Friday Sale (Amazon version) is 605 items deep. Interesting items include the sly Watchmen commentary in Kieron Gillen’s Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt and classics like Howard Chaykin’s American Flagg! and Jim Starlin’s Dreadstar.

Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt

The Comixology Originals Sale (Amazon version) is Comixology’s eclectic line of commissioned comics and manga imports.  We’ve spoken a bit about Elephantmen in the past, which moved over from Image. We also like Delver by Spike Trottman and MK Reed, a fantasy comics that might fall into the LitRPG literary genre, but also gets into the economics repercussions of adventurers showing up when the entrance to a mystical dungeon materializes in a remote farming community.

Delver

The Viz Black Friday Sale (Amazon version) isn’t the best deal you’re going to find today at only 43% off, but there’s a ton of Blue Exorcist, One Piece and Yu-Gi-Oh! at a $3.99 price point.

One Piece

The Kodansha Black Friday Sale  (Amazon Version) has the first volumes in various series like Attack on Titan, Beck and Ghost in the Shell for $0.99 each – i.e., cheap.

Attack on Titan

The Best of Archie Sale (Amazon version) has classic Archie, modern Archie and some Riverdale thrown in for good measure. Some of the V. 1’s are $0.99, too.

Riverdale

The  Best of IDW Sale  (Amazon version) strangely does not have Ragnarok in it… but it does have some flagship titles like Locke & Key, G.I. Joe and My Little Pony.

Locke & Key

The Best of BOOM! Sale (Amazon version) is a small one.  You’ll find Giant Days, Irredeemable, Angel (as in Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Lumberjanes and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. We loved Irredeemable, a Mark Waid/Peter Krause superhero tale (universe, really) where the elevator pitch might be “What if Superman had a psychotic break?” – NOTE: the Comixology version of this has some $0.99 first volumes.  Amazon does have the same pricing, but not on the sale page.  You’ll need to go to the series page on Amazon for that.

Irredeemable

The Best of Humanoids Sale (Amazon Version) is mostly $0.99 books on Comixology (be warned – these are $4.99 on Amazon). The Incal sequence by Jodorowsky and Moebius is the publisher’s flagship, along with its many spinoffs. If you’d like something a little more interesting Kabul Disco is an amusing account of ex-pat life in Afghanistan where the laughs come with a chill.

The Black Incal

The Best of Valiant Sale (Amazon version) runs through 12/03. We’ve covered this one before, but it’s hard to beat $0.99 Volume 1’s and Archer & Armstrong is a scream.

Archer & Armstrong

The Best of Oni Sale (currently no Amazon master link for the sale, but here’s V.1 of Letter 44.) also runs through 12/3. While The Sixth Gun is a glaring omission from a “Best of” list, you’ve probably already heard of Scott Pilgrim and Letter 44 by Charles Soule and Alberto Alburquerque, about political intrigue surrounding a first contact incident, is a real page turner.

Letter 44

Comixology Sales: Black Friday $4.99 Graphic Novels from DC; Image and Dark Horse have extra wide 50% off sales

The Black Friday Comixology sales are heating up. Joining Marvel in the fray is a $4.99 graphic novel sale at DC and deep rosters of half-off books from Dark Horse and Image.

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

DC’s Got a $4.99 Sale

DC’s got multiple sales going on… they even have their own special Black Friday Sale page.  At the top of that page is the $4.99 section we’re going to pay a little more attention to, as DC doesn’t go down to $4.99 every week.  You’ve got until Monday (11/30) to browse this one.

The Unwritten is a long-running Vertigo title by Mike Carey (perhaps better known these days as M.R. Carey, author of The Girl With All the Gifts) and Peter Gross.  Tom Taylor’s father wrote books about a boy wizard named Tom Taylor.  Is Tom his father’s son, the actual character from the books or something else?  Magic, conspiracies and unwanted celebrity collide in this one.  Save a couple bucks – Unwritten Deluxe Book One collects the first two tpbs for less.

Prez may not have seen it’s natural end, but it’s so timely right now.  This Mark Russell/Ben Caldwell/Mark Morales book tells the tale of the Corndog Girl when a series of coincidences involving social media and a contested election sent to Congress for a vote land her in the Oval Office.  Worth it just for the “how to pick a Vice President” sequence.

Batman: Gothic is one of Grant Morrison’s early Batman tales.  Drawn by Klaus Jansen, it finds Batman drawn into a conflict between Gotham’s mobsters and killer who won’t stay dead.  It’s called “Gothic” because Morrison was heavily influenced by gothic horror when writing it.

Unwritten   Prez   Batman - Gothic

Dark Horse discounts for Black Friday

Dark Horse has just about everything except the original run of Dark Horse Comics Presents on sale.  Today, we’ll have a look at Part 1 of their Graphic Novel sale.  (We’ll hit Part 2 on Friday, but feel free to skip ahead if you’re itching for Lone Wolf and Cub.)  As is our custom, we’ll try and highlight things that haven’t been part of recent sales, but rest assured that the usual suspect are also 50% off.

Have you tried Blacksad yet? Blacksad is a Raymond Chandler-esque detective series that happens to be done in anthropomorphic style.  The characters are animals, but it’s absolutely not a funny animal comic, it’s hard boiled detective stories.  Old school.  It’s by Juan Díaz Canales and Juanjo Guarnido.  It’s one of the best illustrated comics out there, too.

Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan: The Complete Joe Kubert Years is just what it says it is: Kubert’s complete early 70s Tarzan run for DC. A labor of love from one of the most influential artists… and that complete edition is a lot more convenient than when I had to go tracking down the archive editions in print!

Finder is Carla Speed McNeil’s long running science fiction series.  It’s heavy on world building and especially culture building. Finder racks up awards: Igantz, Eisner and even an LA Times Book Prize.  It’s criminal that its not better known.  Also, the first two “Finder Library” volumes are over 600 pages each, so an excellent value on top of the quality work.

This sale runs through Monday (11/30).  There are also two single issue sales: Part one takes you from the beginning of the alphabet into “I.”  Part 2 finishes the set.

Blacksad   Joe Kubert's Tarzan  Finder

Image goes Black Friday, too

Image also has pretty much the entire catalog on sale for Black Friday. 1,463 items for you to browse between now and Cyber Monday (11/30).  This is a 50% off sale, so if you were meaning to pick up a digital collection, dig around for it and the odds are good it’ll be there.  A few items of possible interest?

Die (as in “dice”) is a fantasy adventure by Kieron Gillen and Stephanie Hans about a middle-aged group of friends discovering an otherworldly incident involving a role-playing game in their teen years isn’t over after all.  If you wanted to do the Hollywood cliche elevator pitch on this one, “The Dungeons & Dragon cartoon meets It” would not be unreasonable.  It’s very good, but be aware it’s as darkly-themed a comic as there is on the market.

Kane is Paul Grist’s cult harboiled detective series about a cop in corrupt department.  He might be a little better known in the U.S. for Jack Staff or his Doctor Who work, but this is where he made his name.

Kick-Ass has been over at Image for a spell.  This comes in two flavors: the better known “Dave” years are by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr.  After the opening arc for “The New Girl,” they tag out for Steve Niles and Marcelo Frusin.
