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

Remember, DC’s got that sale with all the $1.99 collected editions still going. Meanwhile the indies seem to have slowed their sale announcements and are probably massing for the “official” holiday sale announcements…

The Marvel Start a New Series Sale runs through Monday, 12/12.

And if you were wanting some Marvel single issue sales, there’s a bunch of them here.

The premise is that Marvel would like you to sample the discounted issues and maybe stick around for more issues, so these are all recent issues.  Let’s break this into new titles (i.e., #1 is on sale) and continuing titles (the sale picks up partially into the series). Here are the highlights:

New

Continuing (Standard disclaimer – you’ll probably need to scroll down a bit before the discounts kick in)

Gosh, seems like there are a lot more “new” titles than “continuing” ones, doesn’t it? And not all the X-Men family relaunches are listed here, either!  Such is the nature of relaunches, but let’s talk about some of those new titles that we can recommend from personal experience.

Captain America: Symbol of Truth by Tochi Onyebuchi and R.B. Silva came out of nowhere and knocked our socks off. This is Sam Wilson as Cap and the series has Sam and the new Falcon on the trail of super soldier serum smugglers, which leads them to human traffickers, which leads them to Latveria, which leads them to Wakanda. A vaguely Ludlum-esque chase from one facet of the conspiracy to next. Bonus points: it can be difficult to fit goofy ‘ole Deadpool in an otherwise serious plot, but it’s pulled off very well here!

Defenders Beyond by Al Ewing and Javier Rodríguez is their second go-round with everyone’s favorite “non-team.” We’re two issues into this one and so far, a spell cast by Doctor Strange from beyond the grave has assembled a new group of heroes, some familiar, and a notable artifact from the the last series. The threat they’re confronting? The Beyonders. Including that Beyonder. Wild cosmic stuff that starts with the Celestials and the destruction of universes. Great art and writing.

Carnage by Ram V and Francesco Manna is a deeply weird relaunch with the atmosphere of a horror comic. The Carnage symbiote has become separate from Cletus Kasaday and is seeking a new host. Or hosts. Preferably with superpowers and the symbiote might just have a plan. The symbiote also has a sort of groupie in tow and is pursued by a detective who’s been… touched by Carnage. And that’s before the Dark Elves show up. When we said deeply weird, we weren’t joking. But Ram V does well when the going gets weird.

SNIKT!

The Wolverine: The Best There Is Sale runs through Thursday, 12/15.

Wolverine sales are goofy because these issues have been packaged in so many different ways.

If you want early Wolverine, the Wolverine Omnibus will get you, among other things, the first Hulk appearance, the first mini-series, the Kitty Pride & Wolverine mini-series, a couple Marvel Comics Presents serials and the first 10 issues of the ongoing Wolverine comic.

Here’s the link for the original Wolverine ongoing series. Yes, that’s a bit of an overlapping mess. There are those who prefer the Larry Hama run. For this sale, we’d probably point to a couple self-contained arcs: Wolverine Classic V. 3 is “The Gehenna Stone Affair” written by Peter David with art by John Buscema inked by Bill Sienkiewicz. It’s romp with Logan and Jessica Drew racing against vampires trying to retrieve an artifact. Wolverine Classic V.5 is “Spore” by Archie Goodwin and John Byrne with Klaus Jansen inks. Logan runs up against a sentient bio-weapon and… cocaine. Did you notice both of these have some unusual penciller/inker combos?

Wolverine Omnibus   Wolverine: The Gehanna Stone Affair   Wolverine: Spore

Here’s the link for the ’03-’09 version of WolverineThe highlights here are the lower key Greg Rucka / Darick Robertson / Leandro Fernandez run and two Mark Millar runs.

Enemy of the State is Millar with John Romita, Jr. having Logan encounter an unholy alliance between The Hand and Hydra, which ends up with his getting brainwashed before extracting a bloody revenge. Also introduces Gorgan.

Old Man Logan by Millar and Steve McNiven is probably the most famous arc of this run. Movie-inspiring, even. In a dystopian possible future, an aging Logan is trying to mind his own business, but will anyone leave him alone? Nope. And a road trip ensues. This format has had more legs than anyone could have imagined when it was pitched!

After that, you might have a look at the current Benjamin Percy/Adam Kubert Wolverine (First two volumes are cheaper in omnibus form.)

Finally, don’t sleep on All-New Wolverine by Tom Taylor / David Lopez / Juan Cabal. Yes, it’s an X-23 book, but it’s really good.

All-New Wolverine

Groot? Groot. Groot!

The Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Legacy Sale runs through Monday, 12/19.

Wow, but this sale has become a sprawling thing with “legacy” even pulling in Adam Warlock… although Starlin’s Warlock is amazing, so there’s that.  Let’s try to break down the highlights.

Original Guardians of the Galaxy

New GoG (The DnA cast or movie version if you must)

Solo titles

What’s good here?  Well, we’ve always liked the original. Particularly the Steve Gerber bits. We also loved the recent Al Ewing / Juan Cabal run. And if you like the current incarnation, you should probably go back to the source with the DnA run.

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 CollectionThere 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 Soldierthe 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.

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.
