This week’s Comixology sales highlights: Jeff Lemire gets TWO sales as Sweet Tooth hits Netflix, DC has a Pride sale and Comixology Unlimited subscribers get 50% off at Oni _and_ Humanoids.
(Disclosure: If you buy something we link to on our site, we may earn commission.)
The DC Spotlight Jeff Lemire and Sweet Tooth Sale runs through Monday, 6/7.
You may have noticed that Lemire’s Sweet Tooth is starting up on Netflix. The omnibus editions are better buy by a smidge.
Our favorite Lemire DC work was always Trillium. Just a single volume here with a tale of star-crossed lovers in different timelines and an expertly crafted parallel narrative structure.
Another Mr. Lemire
The Image Jeff Lemire Sale runs through Sunday, 6/13.
Is it a coincidence that Image also has a Jeff Lemire sale as Sweet Tooth makes it’s streaming debut? We don’t think so, but that’s OK – we often prefer Image Lemire to DC Lemire.
Perhaps start with Descender by Lemire and Dustin Nguyen. It’s a space opera involving a little boy robot searching for his family… and a robot uprising. Great stuff.
Gideon Falls recently wrapped up and all but the final volume are on sale. This one with Andrea Sorrentino is an extra creepy horror tale involving missing persons, a phantom barn and time hopping.
The DC Pride Month sale runs through Wednesday, 6/30.
We loves the Greg Rucka / J. H. Williams III Batwoman run. LOVES, we say.
That was followed by a W. Haden Blackman / J.H. Williams III Batwoman series that we liked… although DC editorial absolutely gutted the ending of the arc. It’s a good ride and then a forced ending.
Good discounts on the Batwoman material, too. 60% and up.
Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles by Mark Russell and Steve Pugh styles Snagglepuss as a gay playwright in 1953 NYC as the House Un-American Activities Committee rears its ugly head. Worth it for the Dorothy Parker sequence alone!
All kinds of Hellblazer, too.
50% off Oni
Yes, the 50% off sales for Comixology Unlimited subscribers are back in force. This runs through 11PM ET on Monday, 6/7. First up, it’s half-off for the Oni line. There’s a lot more here than just Scott Pilgrim. Our favorites are the dark fantasy/horror western The Sixth Gun by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt and the espionage saga Queen & Country, which is written by Greg Rucka and switches out artists every time.
Since the discount stacks, that means CU subscribers can see 75% discounts with the Oni Pride Sale.
50% off Humanoids
Also running through 11PM ET on Monday, 6/7 – Comixology Unlimited subscribers get half-off at Humanoids. PLENTY to browse here. We really liked the autobiographical tale of working in Afghanistan: Kabul Disco by Nicolas Wild.
Geoff Johns fans might be interested in Olympus, written by Johns and Kris Grimminger with art by Butch Guice. (First volume is a mere $0.50 -CHEAP.) So yes, we mean there’s plenty to browse here and more variety than Humanoids sometimes gets credit for.
