Canadian Freebie: Free Comics for 14 Days @ Humble Bundle

Posted by on September 18, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Canadian Freebie: Free Comics for 14 Days @ Humble Bundle

Here is another sweet little freebie from Humble Bundle. While the Valiant Comic Book Bundle is on at Humble Bundle, they will be offering a different free issue from the Valiant Comics library. Each day the new comic will appear at 11am PDT. Today’s free comic is Eternal Warrior #1.

Just scroll to the bottom of the page to request your free comic book. The only thing it requires is an email address and a Humble Bundle account.

Now, redemption is a little more complicated than your standard Steam game. You can choose from several different redemption methods:

  1. Look the comics into your Google Play Books library
  2. Send the comics to your Kindle or Kindle reader
  3. Download the ‘hard-file’ and get instructions on how to put it on your Android, iOS, ETC.

I went to the page where I needed to choose the format I wanted to download – and to my surprise, I found not just one but two free comics waiting for me.

Canadian Freebie: Free Comics for 14 Days @ Humble Bundle

I am not sure how that happened, but I hope it happens to all of you! As you can see, I am also getting a free copy of X-O Manowar #1. I believe that is yesterday’s free comic as this Bundle was just released then. Though these are not my type of comics, so I will not be finishing the downloads, these are fantastic freebies for anyone into comics that wants to expand their horizons. Each day you can get a new free comic and that should continue for 12 more days! In total, you should be able to score 14 free comics from this offer.

I also suggest you consider buying the Humble Valiant Bundle if you like what you read. It is over $420 worth of comics and a good portion of they are pay what you want. A portion of the proceeds goes to charity and you get a whole lot of great new comics to read.

(Expiry: 11AM PST each day for 12 more days approximately)

Marvel.com Coupon Code: Unlimited Subscription Only $0.99 TODAY (Expired)

Little late on this offer (because I thought it was open to US residents only) but you need to get in on this! Get an entire month of Marvel Unlimited for only 99 cents with the following coupon code.

Click here to sign up for Marvel Unlimited Now

  • Coupon Code: SDCC14
  • Discount: One month for $0.99
  • Expiry: 29th July 2014 @ 11:59 EST

Long story short: I was going to blog this a few days ago but read some fine print somewhere that said it was for USA residents only. However, this morning I was messaging a Twitter gal in Belgium (got to love the internet) and she mentioned the Marvel unlimited Subscription. Upon confirmation, I found out this is indeed available globally. So, get your cute little butts on this deal because it is awesome.

What you get:

You get access to over 15,000 digital comics spanning the last 75 years from Marvel. This database is enough to keep any geek reading for the entire month with no hope of making it through the entire database. Book some vacation for August friends, because your little geek eyes are going to need it. Try to get some sleep too, eh?

What you save:

The Marvel month-to-month subscription regularly costs $9.99 so you are saving 90% on the monthly subscription. Make sure to cancel your subscription before your next billing cycle so you do not get charged the full cost for the next month. If you want to continue with your subscription because of the sheer awesomeness of the digital Marvel library, you would be better to cancel your current subscription and then switch over to the annual subscription for $69 a year. The 99-cent offer is not valid on annual or annual plus memberships (you would need to cancel and then get one of those after). Either way, this 99 cent offer will give you a taste of what the Marvel archives have to offer for an entire month while you decide.

This sweet little offer from Marvel is open to new and former (now-cancelled) Marvel Unlimited members. If you currently have an account, you are out of luck. All prices are in USD. We can also send out thanks to the San Diego Comic Convention for this coupon code, you might notice that the code is to celebrate this year’s convention.

As a side note, who is excited for Rocket Raccoon? I know I am! I just love anything Skottie Young touches.

Free Comic Book Day

Posted by on April 30, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Free Comic Book Day

Coming up in just three short days is a pretty great free event all across Canada.  It is called Free Comic Book Day. On May 3rd, you will be able to walk into your local comic book store and get a free comic book.

There is no purchase necessary to get your free comic book, and most comic book stores across North America will be participating, whether they are big or small.  The stores will be the ones choosing which free comics you will be able to get.

Last year, there was a list of 44 different comics you could choose from in your local stores for free. This year there are 57 different books to choose from. You will be able to get one to ten free comic books, depending on the store, and there is a good variety of comics for kids that are young to adults that are young at heart.

This is a great family event to head in for to get kids interested in reading.  I know a lot of little kids that really don’t like to read, but love comic books. Comics are a great starter type of reading for kids because they are fun and colourful.  Right now the new Spiderman movie is coming out, which has always been a very popular comic book series. You can get the Spiderman 2: Bleeding Cool as one of your choices which is sure to be a popular one.

The stores may differ for when their hours are, so make sure to phone ahead just to be sure.

Comixology: Top Shelf Comics on Sale

Comixology: Top Shelf Comics on Sale

Get awesome comics from Top Shelf for cheap from Comixology!

Click here to shop the Top Shelf Sale @ Comixology.com now

I don’t think that I’ve ever read a comic from Top Shelf but their stuff seems cool. A lot of it seems really strange too, which is nice. Spider-Man, Superman, Batman, The Flash and all those superheros are fine but some times you just want something different.

Something different like Hutch Owen Volume 1, Volume 2 and Volume 3. They look about as far away from the traditional Marvel and DC superheros as possible. Each volume used to be $4.99 but is now $1.99 after the $3 discount. Or you could check out Alec: The Years Have Pants or Infinite Kun Fu, both of which were $9.99 and are now $2.99 and $3.99, respectively. I have actually heard of a few of these series’ available here and one of them is The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Century 1910, Century 1969 and Century 2009. All of these were $4.99 but you save $2 and get them for $2.99 each.

So go ahead and pick up a digital comic for your computer, phone or tablet and try something different!

Comixology: BOOM! Studios Horror Comic On Sale

Posted by on October 16, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Comixology: BOOM! Studios Horror Comic On Sale

Just in time for Halloween, you can pick up a whole bunch of BOOM! Studios’ horror comics for cheap at Comixology!

You can pick from nine different comics:

  • 28 Days Later
  • Cthulu Tales
  • Zombie Tales
  • Dracula: The Company of Monsters
  • Kay of Z
  • Tag
  • Tag: Cursed
  • Necronomicon
  • The Calling: Cthulu Chronicles

These run from $0.99 for individual comics to $19.99 for one of the few Omnibi available. They are all 50% off the original prices.

To me, the best thing about comics is that the barrier to entry is incredibly low. You can get one issue of a series and if you like it, good, you keep on reading it. If you don’t like it, then you spent maybe between $0.99 and $3.99 for the latest issue. With Comixology, you can buy and read comics on your computer, phone or tablet, so there is no wasted time, paper or gas going to grab a comic.

Comixology: All 114 Issues Of The Walking Dead $100 + Discounts On Individual & Collected Issues

Posted by on October 13, 2013 at 9:00 PM

Comixology: All 114 Issues Of The Walking Dead $100 + Discounts On Individual & Collected Issues

It’s Walking Dead night; there’s no better time to get all the comics at a huge discount from Comixology!

There aren’t a lot of shows that my wife and I watch together. She likes reality TV and I don’t. I’m primarily into sitcoms and drama/action sort of things like Breaking Bad, Mad Men and Under the Dome. Fortunately, we are both into The Walking Dead. Of course, I’m a comic guy and she is not, so I have a bunch of the collected editions. She has no interest in them at all.

Most people think that you should always read the book or comic or see the play or whatever before the TV show or movie. I happen to disagree, and I’ll let you know why after I talk about the deal here.

You’ll pay $99.99 for 114 issues of The Walking Dead comic. At regular price for all 114 issues of The Walking Dead on Comixology, you would pay $224.87. Even if you got them in collected editions, it would still be $183.82. That’s a savings of $124.88 on individual issues or $83.83 on collected issues. Let’s say you’re like me and you already have some issues. You can still get individuals for $0.99 or collected editions for $4.99 to $5.99. That’s down from $1.99 for individual issues and $8.99 to $14.99 for collected editions.

As always with the vast majority of comics on Comixology, the first issues is free, so if you’re not down with The Walking Dead yet, you can start being down for free.

Okay, the reason I think watching the TV show first is a better idea is actually something the illustrious JustinRYoung said on his first comedy album. He said that when you read the book first, then watch the TV show, you are going from a big universe to a condensed universe. TV show to book is expanding on the universe. The idea is that if you love The Walking Dead on TV, you’ll love the comic even more because the universe is so much richer and filled out. Any time a book turns in to a TV show or movie, they have to take stuff out, so you lose some of the experience.

There is no shipping, as these are digital comics that you can read on your computer, phone or tablet.

Comixology: My Little Ponies Comics On Sale – 99 Cents/Issue

Posted by on July 24, 2013 at 1:00 PM

Comixology: My Little Ponies Comics On Sale   99 Cents/Issue

Bronies and ponies unite, and buy My Little Pony comics for only 99 cents from Comixology!

My Little Pony is a franchise that swept the nation in the mid-to-late 80′s. If you grew up in that time like I did, you definitely came across these prettily colored ponies with sparkly tails, either in your own toy box or that of a friend. Now, My Little Pony is back with the hit My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic TV series, and with that has come a whole culture of My Little Pony cosplay and a male My Little Pony fan culture called “bronies”. But, what media property would be complete without toys and other various merch like comics?

That’s right, comics! Specifically comics for 99 cents per issue from Comixology. Some of the comics were originally $1.99, and some were $2.99, so you’re saving $1 or $2 by getting them for $0.99 per issue. If you want volume one, you can get it for $3.99, which is $4 off the original price of $7.99. Of course, there is no shipping since this is a digital comic.

One of the best things about Comixology is that they have readers for every platform. Web, iOS, Android. You can even get a pretty good Windows 8 app. The apps are very intuitive and you can even get panel-by-panel guided viewing.

Comixology: 50% Off Battlestar Galactica Comics

Posted by on May 14, 2013 at 10:00 PM

Comixology: 50% Off Battlestar Galactica Comics

I should say something funny about Battlestar Galactica here, but I’ve got nothing. Get 50% off the comics with Comixology. Cylon!

The reason i don’t have anything to say about Battlestar Galactica is because I have never ingested any Battlestar content with my eyes. Yes, I’m a bad geek, I know. I have a very good reason, though! I don’t want to watch it. See, I told you it was a good reason.

But for all the people out there who love Battlestar Galactica in a very inappropriate way, this is a great deal. There are six different Battlestar comic series on sale here and they are all half off. You can get each issue for only 99 cents. They are normally $1.99 so you’re getting $1 off. These are all fairly new too, the oldest one having started in 2011 and at least one brand new one that started in 2013. If you’re not sure about the comics you can pick up issue #1 for FREE.

These are digital comics so there is no shipping fee and you can read them on your computer, phone or tablet.

Are you a Battlestar Galactica fan? Why? Do you like something else more?

Comixology: Grimm’s Fairy Tales Omnibi & Collected Editions – Up To 50% Off

Posted by on April 21, 2013 at 10:00 PM

Comixology: Grimms Fairy Tales Omnibi & Collected Editions   Up To 50% Off

These aren’t the fairy tales you heard when you were a kid. Actually, they are, but with a far more adult slant. Grownup fairly tales, on sale, from Comixology!

Seriously people, these are not kids fairy tales. I mean, most comics are way over-sexualized, but these things are way, way, way over-sexualized: just fair warning. Regardless of how ludicrous some of the parts of the books are, people seem to really dig ‘em. The concept is great; Take something that almost every knows, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, and flip it so even though it’s the same characters and same general story, it’s completely different. I’ve never read these, but from what I can gather the whole concept around them is taking fairy tales and working them into a real life situation that matches up somewhat with the story of the original fairy tale.

I actually really identify with this, because I’ve written a book with a similar sort of storytelling mechanism. I think it’s a great way to open up comics (or a book, TV show, movie or other media property) to a new audience who might not otherwise be interested in it. There is no real barrier to entry on a comic like this unless you’re put off by it’s adult nature. Most of us know Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood, so it’s not like getting into these comics will take a bunch of back story or learning a bunch of new characters.

The digital Omnibi, Collected Editions and individual issues are all on sale for varying amounts up to 50% off. The individual issues are all 50% off their original $1.99 price tag so you pay $0.99. The collected editions come in at $5.99, which is 40% off the original $9.99 price. The Omnibi are $19.99 and $21.99 which is 45% and 50% off, respectively. They are all digital comics, so no shipping and you can read them on your computer, smartphone or tablet!

Comixology: Entire HELLBLAZER Run For 99 Cents/Issue + FREE Comic!

Posted by on March 23, 2013 at 11:00 AM

Comixology: Entire HELLBLAZER Run For 99 Cents/Issue + FREE Comic!

You can buy every issue in the 25 year long Hellblazer series for only 99 cents per issue. That’s 50% off 300 comics! How can you perform this wizard feat? Why, with Comixology, of course.

I haven’t done a lot of Comixology deals as of late because they have been mainly on Marvel and DC franchises that everyone knows, like Batman and Captain America. While those are fine, I like featuring some of the smaller publishers like Vertigo and their 25 year long Hellblazer series. Now, before some comic nerd comments, I know Vertigo is part of DC, but it is an imprint that focuses specifically on more adult comics instead of the flashy superhero comics that are getting turned into movies. While Vertigo isn’t exactly struggling, they are often overlooked by some of the more casual readers.

As I mentioned, Hellblazer has been running for 25 years and, as of last month, is over. It ran for 300 issues. That is an amazing feat for any media property. From the Bloody-Disgusting.com description of the final issue:

It’s the heart-rending conclusion of “DEATH AND CIGARETTES”—and the end of Vertigo’s longest running series. John Constantine has escaped, cheated, narrowly avoided and even reversed death on multiple occasions over the past 25 years. Now, we will test whether the old boy has one more second chance in him. Don’t miss this epic, oversized special issue celebrating everything that makes John Constantine so bloody unique.

If you aren’t impressed by the 25 year history, check out the first issue for FREE.

Comixology: Steel & Firestorm for 99 cents an issue!

Posted by on February 9, 2013 at 1:00 PM

Comixology: Steel & Firestorm for 99 cents an issue!

Comixology is celebrating Black History Month by offering up sales on some great comics with black superheros.

This is a “half off” sale so the original price was $1.99 and you save $1 making your grand total 99 cents! Not a bad deal for some awesome comics. Actually, I’m just guessing that Firestorm comics are awesome since I’ve never read any of them. I have, however, read a few Steel comics when I was a kid and they were great.

One of the best things about Comixology is their apps. You can buy and read the comics on your computer but they are so much better on a tablet or phone. The app, for me, really is the main reason I buy through Comixology. I especially like the ability to swipe through the comic pane-by-pane instead of page-by-page and having to zoom in and out all the time. You can even buy right from the app. Very convenient.
