If you are a reader of this site (and judging by the bleak numbers, not many are), then you likely know that this past weekend thousands of Marvel trade comics went on sale on Amazon for dirt cheap. I mean, 90%-95% dirt cheap. That’s ridiculous and way too good to pass up. Even if you are a DC fanboy, such as myself, you cannot snub your nose at this sale.
Of course, these are only good for the e-versions of the trades, not the physical copies. I have some feelings with respect to physical copies of my comics compared to the electronic versions and I will get into that at some point, because I flip-flopped on the medium in which I read my comics and have had some really interesting discussions with people on which they prefer.
But, for now, I digress…
Personally, I took this sale and opportunity to grab a few trades that I had interest in but wasn’t committed to dropping $20-$30+ CAD (that’s Canadian Dollars, for those not from the Great White North) on said titles. But in this format, it gives me an opportunity to read some of the titles I am interested in and, if I end up really enjoying them, I may buy the physical copy.
But for now, its all about the sale and I suggest you get on that pronto! If you have a ComiXology app on your tablet or phone, you will need to ensure you have migrated your Amazon account so that you can purchase the books. Just an FYI…this was some of the issues I had run into because its been a number of years since I bought an electronic copy of my comics.
Hit the below link and enjoy perusing. I would suggest making a list of your interests because after a few pages of scrolling, you may forget which title tickled your fancy when you begin. The link is for the Amazon.com site and Canadian’s, you will be redirected to the .ca site when you make your purchases. For the rest of the world, I think that most of the Amazon sites have the deal on as well.
Have fun and enjoy!!
