Title: Comixology Sales

The Woods -
Well I see that Comixology Unlimited has the first four issues of James Tynion's THE WOODS, so if anyone read those and liked it, the rest of the series (up to the current #22) is on sale for 99 each.

Outcast -
Also on Unlimited are the first 6 issues of Kirkman's OUTCAST, so if you liked that the rest of the series (up to 18 ... 19 just hit a few weeks ago) is up there for the usual 99
I have watched the first 3 episodes of the show and have always wondered if the comic reads/feels the same. But I will hold off for now.

Other stuff -
They also have an IDW Crossover special. The only things I would kinda be interested in are the Star Trek crossovers (Legion, Green Lantern and Planet of the Apes) but they have some more if any of you guys and gals are in for it.
 ;D

Love me some Galactus, but never read these first four comics "The Hunger" found on Comixology HERE (https://www.comixology.com/Hunger-Sale/page/11936?ref=c2l0ZS9pbmRleC9kZXNrdG9wL2xhcmdlQ2Fyb3VzZWw)
Was this any good? Is it on MU?

They also have that Jeff Lemire DC work still on sale HERE (https://www.comixology.com/Jeff-Lemire-Sale/page/11834?ref=c2l0ZS9pbmRleC9kZXNrdG9wL3NtYWxsQ2Fyb3VzZWw) and I am thinking hard about those Animal Man and Frankenstien issues (and hey, they have some Superboy issues also!!  :D)

And if I didn't have these (https://www.comixology.com/Morning-Glories-Sale/page/11932?ref=c2l0ZS9pbmRleC9kZXNrdG9wL3NtYWxsQ2Fyb3VzZWw) in HC form, I would be all over this. I know Jeff and Jimmy also enjoy this book so I can only advise you to give them a try.
(Man, I really need to find some time to catch up with this series, but I would have to start all the way at the beginning to remember what the heck is going on  :D)

(http://emoticoner.com/files/emoticons/smileys/drool-smiley.gif) Oh man. How am I gonna resist THIS (https://www.comixology.com/Fantastic-Four-Sale/page/11952?ref=c2l0ZS9pbmRleC9kZXNrdG9wL2xhcmdlQ2Fyb3VzZWw&list12585_pg=1)?
                                                (http://emoticoner.com/files/emoticons/smileys/dreamy-eyes-smiley.gif)
I tell ya what, if they do this again for the next 125 issues, there is no way, no way I could resist. But while this stuff is so important to the comics world, while stealing borrowing from DC's Challengers of the Unknown  ;), I am still not a fan of Stan Lee's writing. Not just because of the older style, but ... I don't know. Stan's Spidey is ... better, but just never really liked his FF.
*dodges tomatoes*
Not sure how I can let go of this, but ... Man, this is a tough one!!!! That early Kirby Marvel work and my favorite team!?!?! Aaarrrrhhhh

Still, if I get this and then they put up the next 125 issues at 99 ... I will not be able to get them ... not while still keeping my marriage intact.
 :D :D
 Crap/ This is tough.
But still, regardless ... better start putting my money away for the next big sale. FF or not!!!
 :)

I haven't looked yet but if all of those are on MU then it would be cheaper to join that.   8)

Too true.

I just hate that feeling of just borrowing, even though that is how I get 99% of my reading now  :D :D

But your point is valid. You talked me off the ledge.

Bye-Bye money
 :D

Plus, I think the first series of THIS (https://www.comixology.com/Moon-Knight-Sale/page/12229?ref=c2l0ZS9pbmRleC9kZXNrdG9wL2xhcmdlQ2Fyb3VzZWw) has two out of my top ten comic covers ever with its issues #8 and #15.

Two covers that I can stare at for hours.

Lots of specials this week-End

DC BOGO sale on Rebirth #1 issues and one-shots. Have something you missed or want to try? this is a great way to do it.

CLICK ME (https://www.comixology.com/DC-Buy-One-Get-One-Sale/page/13251?ref=c2l0ZS9pbmRleC9kZXNrdG9wL2xhcmdlQ2Fyb3VzZWw) before Monday night
 :)
EDIT - And don't forget, that buy one get one only counts towards the #1 Rebirth issues. Please read the code coupon carefully!!

Image sale. Lots of trades for $4. Want to try Brian K Vaughn's Papergirls? Or Manifest Destiny?  Rucka's Black Magik or Lazarus? Well HERE (https://www.comixology.com/Image-Black-Friday-Sale/page/13160?ref=c2l0ZS9pbmRleC9kZXNrdG9wL3NtYWxsQ2Fyb3VzZWw) is your chance (also ends the 28th)

This one, with the Mignola Universe stuff, is gonna hurt me I think. Click HERE (https://www.comixology.com/Dark-Horse-Black-Friday-Cyber-Monday-Sale/page/13254?ref=c2l0ZS9pbmRleC9kZXNrdG9wL3NtYWxsQ2Fyb3VzZWw) and feel my pain  ;D

And if that one doesn't force my wife to make a change at the husband position  :D I think THIS (https://www.comixology.com/Alien-Legion-Sale/page/13249?ref=c2l0ZS9pbmRleC9kZXNrdG9wL3NtYWxsQ2Fyb3VzZWw) may very well do it. A fantastic memory of my younger days. I lived in my car then too, so I am prepared for the backlash.
 :D

Damn you Perry!  

 :D I hear ya, buddy.

You did grab some great stuff for that price you paid. I'm glad the sale wasn't JUST for the Rebirth stuff, like that code stated. That is cool!!!

I just wish you would have gotten New Superman #2 as well as that is when the title starts to reveal itself. The "star", the "Superman", is basically just shown as a jerk in issue #1, only to set-up the change he has to go through. It is such a good title, kinda like the old JLI stuff, in a way, with the humor I mean, but I understand you not jumping in with both feet at first
 :)

Unfollow is a title that is wowing lots of peeps, along with Clean Room, which I hear is also very good. I have the issues waiting for me, but just don't have the time to get to them yet ... but ... if you say Unfollow is good ...
Well, let me know what you think and I will go from there.
 :D

The way I read the offer you couldn't get anything from Rebirth beyond the first issues or I would have grabbed them all plus Action Comics.  They are both in my Wish List so I do plan to get to them.

Unfollow is a title that is wowing lots of peeps, along with Clean Room, which I hear is also very good. I have the issues waiting for me, but just don't have the time to get to them yet ... but ... if you say Unfollow is good ...
Well, let me know what you think and I will go from there.
 :D


They will be in my reading list for next week so I'll be letting you know sooner rather than later.   ;D
