Title: Comixology BIG SALES in honor of SDCC
Post by: Jeff on July 16, 2019, 02:49:55 PM
ComiXology has a lot of BIG SALES this week because of the SDCC this weekend.

One of them is 60% off all DC Comics published before 6/30/2019.  Because of my self imposed boycott, I had a lot of DC that I hadn't bought.  Now that my boycott is over, I was able to buy all the ones I'd missed for a fraction of the price.  I got all of these for $49.54; saving $68.04!!!

Ugh
Been a long time since I went all Black Friday on comics. This doesn't bode well for me. I have a feeling I may be getting in trouble
 :-\
Thanks to Jeff
 :(


 ;D
(Hoping I don't see much) ;D

EDIT -
In just under two minutes I already found two sets of collections I am thinking about getting. One, I will get is Dr. Strange The Oath for $3
I have also always wanted to try the Spanish anthropomorphic comic Blacksad and they have all three volumes for under $6 each ... may not resist that, unless I find a lot more I want to buy.

I just added the first 8 issues of Bone Parish for 99 cents each.  Looks like my Backlog will be back up to it's old size soon!

On the upside I guess, my Wish List will be almost empty.

Ohhhh they have 99˘ Bone Parish issues? SWEET.
Buying them for sure.
Off to go look at more Boom stuff now.
I need to get a list. Will post it
 :)

EDIT - Wondering why my discounts were not matching yours and I guess it is because you are on Comixology Unlimited?
Not actually paying until I ask the wife, as I always do when I spend over $50 (it is something we have always done back when we were young and broke as you know what :D), but if yeah, if I am missing something ...

Just checking, thanks my man

Whew! Need a break from looking at all those darn comics  ;D

I think I am going to finally get that Alan Moore Swamp Thing run. I have never read it, well, never read 98% of it and they have the first five volumes on sale for just $5.20 each and the last for $6.80. That is just over $30 but it is a lot of reading.  :)
You recently read it Jeff, should I pull this trigger? Does it hold up ... have I missed my chance? Did you finish it? Is it worth $32 and some change?

Oh yeah, sorry.  I get an xtra 10% off for being a ComiXology Unlimited member.  I forgot they automatically take that off of all orders.  That’s why my “full price” Wild Storm issue was $3.39 instead of $3.99.

You recently read it Jeff, should I pull this trigger? Does it hold up ... have I missed my chance? Did you finish it? Is it worth $32 and some change?

For me it was not.  I only read the first and part of the second then never finished the rest.  It wasn’t bad I think I just lost interest.  Same with Sandman so you can’t take my A.D.D. As proof.   :D

Well alrighty then  ;D

Thanks, I will just spend the $5 and get the first collection, maybe $10 and get the first two (for the price) and see how it hits me. Thanks again

And hey, nothing wrong with not being able to get into Sandman, it is a very slow start from what I remember.  8)

Last day of the sale today (I think I saw that) and after buying a couple books here and there, I think this will be my last order. I think, maybe  ;D May do a tad more looking/thinking and I may end up adding a couple more but I am 90% sure this will be the last things I get.
Just missing issues and a couple of titles/series that I have always wanted to try. With Netflix grabbing the Witcher and having Henry Cavill in the lead, I figure I need to either play the game (that I have yet to even open), Read the novels or read the comics. I chose the easiest one
 ;D

The Wicked + The Divine #15   $0.99
The Wicked + The Divine #20   $0.99
The Wicked + The Divine #21   $0.99
The Wicked + The Divine #35   $0.99
The Wicked + The Divine: 455 AD   $0.99
East of West #19   $0.99
East of West #35   $0.99   
The Weatherman #2   $0.99
The Weatherman #3   $0.99
The Weatherman #4   $0.99
The Weatherman #5   $0.99
The Weatherman #6   $0.99
The Witcher Vol. 1   $5.49
Promethee Vol. 1: Atlantis   $5.99
Saga of the Swamp Thing: Book One   $5.20

Order Total: $28.56    You save: $25.29 - Can't argue with that amount  8)

Thanks again Jeff

I guess the only thing better than saving 60% is not spending anything at all!   ;)
