It’s like there was a TV show debuting or something…
Marvel’s Falcon and the Winter Soldier Sale runs through Sunday (3/21)
There’s a lot to like in this sale, so let’s take it chronologically.
First, you have selections from the original Captain America & The Falcon. We’d point you to 4 of the 5 sales items here. From the Steve Englehart/Sal Buscema era: Secret Empire and Nomad. Secret Empire (if you’re picking between the two, pick this one) has Cap and the Falcon tracking a conspiracy to the highest levels of government. Nomad has Cap so shaken from the fallout of said conspiracy, he gives up his costume. From Jack Kirby’s 70s run, you have Madbomb where Cap and Falcon track down a plot by wealthy would be revolutionaries to use psychic bombs to start riots. It’s pretty relevant today. You also have The Swine, which brings back The Red Skull.
Flash forward ~25 years and we still think too many people were sleeping Captain America & The Falcon by Christopher Priest: The Complete Collection. There are several artists involved with this one – Bart Sears and Joe Bennett being the leads. The signature tale has Cap and Falcon crossing swords with a drug cartel and a military black ops super soldier program.
If you’re looking for Winter Soldier, the Captain America crew of Ed Brubaker / Butch Guice / Michael Lark have 3 volumes here as Bucky Barnes and the Black Widow chase Russian sleeper agents from the Winter Soldier’s old program.
When Venom isn’t enough
The Marvel Carnage Sale runs through Thursday (3/25).
We prefer a more unusual take on the character – the Gerry Conway/Mike Perkins Carnage that involves the Book of Darkhold and is an updated 70s horror-style series in many ways.
You might prefer the more recent Donny Cates / Ryan Stegman Absolute Carnage.
Gosh, could there be a Director’s Cut involved here?
The DC Rise of the Justice League Sale runs through Monday (3/22) and they’ve broken it into three links: Graphic Novels, Single Issues Part 1 and Single Issues Part 2. DC is offering lower discounts on the graphic novels than other publishers, so remember to keep an eye on how many issues are collected in each volume. Most of these issues are going to be available for $0.99, so in some cases it will be cheaper to grab those.
Ignore the omnibus and head for the Justice League International collected editions. This is the bwa ha ha era (which did have a few dramatic moments) with Keith Giffen/J.M. DeMatteis/Kevin Maguire/Al Gordon as the originating creative squad. This collection format branches to include Justice League Europe when that debuts. A good era, if one of the most unconventional.
If you’re looking for something a bit more current, the Scott Snyder Justice League run is on sale. The first post-Snyder volume (with Robert Venditti writing) is not on sale, but most of the single issues of that arc are $0.99, if you’re so inclined.
Definitely Not Hot L Baltimore
The Dark Horse Baltimore Sale runs through Monday (3/29).
One Mike Mignola’s secondary historical fictions, this Mignola/Christopher Golden/Ben Stenbeck collaborations takes us back to the end of WWI, where Lord Baltimore discovers the hard way that’s there’s a whole bunch of vampires floating around Europe. He departs on 1000+ page quest of vengeance that’s now conveniently collected in two omnibus editions. We had a real good time revisiting BPRD in Omnibus format last summer and have this on our entered on our “to read” list.
Baltimore Omnibus Volume 1 and Volume 2
All this and a beagle, too…
The Fantagraphics Peanuts Sale runs through Monday (3/29). Yes, that’s a lot of Charlie Brown and Snoopy.
The Complete Peanuts collects the dailies and Sundays in black & white. (And has the most strips for the price.)
Peanuts Every Sunday collects just the Sunday strips, but has them in color. There are fewer pages for the same price with these volumes. Yes, that’s silly… but color printing is more expensive and the business side of comics has decided that digital prices have to be based on print prices, so here we are. It’s still Charles Schulz’s masterpiece.
Still on Sale
