OMG I just had a heart attack! The Google Play store has finally convinced me that I need an account with their newest giveaway! They are offering 39 comic issues for FREE – just download and it is yours to read and keep. This is an amazing way to check out new comics, read different authors, and check out new art.

I am SO impressed with this offer from Google Play. They are offering first issues (#1) of many different comics from an array of genres. If you are not in to comics already, this is a great way to sample what the comic book world has to offer. Not all comics will appeal to all people, so the breadth of style and genre in this free selection will help you choose what kind of comics you enjoy. Read the rest of this entry »

Google Play Store: SDCC Comic Book Sale -Up to 85% Off!

Posted by on July 11, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Google Play Store: SDCC Comic Book Sale  Up to 85% Off!

San Diego Comic Con is the biggest comic and assorted fandom conference in North America. In honour of this year’s conference, Google Play store is offering steep savings – up to 85% off – on various comics from Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, and more.

San Diego Comic-Con is my cream convention. I think every geek, nerd, and dork in the world dreams of going to the ultimate comic convention down in San Diego. Since I am, obviously, not in attendance this year, I will have to make do with some digital comic deals compliments of Google Play.

My partner sent me this deal because he knows I love the illustrator Skottie Young. Included in the sale is Rocket Raccoon Vol. 1: A Chasing Tale, which is both written and drawn by the amazing Skottie Young. If you are not familiar with this guy, then you haven’t been keeping up in the world of comics. He is famous for his Baby Marvel variant covers and the Marvel OZ series. The volume one of Rocket Racoon was $20.39, but is now only $5.09.

The discounts are very steep on select titles. For fans of the Dark Knight, I recommend picking up the Batman: Knightfall series. All three volumes are steeply discounted from $30.97 each down to $5.15 each. That means all three volumes will cost you half the price of the original price of one volume. Pick them up here:

For Frank Miller fans, this copy of RoboCop vs. The Terminator is on sale from $15.99 down to $3.99. I have to admit, Frank Miller was never my cup of geek. I always found his style a bit too graphic for my taste. I admire the artistry of stuff like Sin City, but the story lines don’t appeal. I do think this might be a fun read as it is combines two separate worlds with strong followings.

DC fans can pick up four volumes of the New 52. Each volume was $20.64 and is now on sale for $5.15. With over 1200 pages of reading between the four volumes, this $20 will keep you reading for a long time. Here are all four volumes:

We own the entire 52 in one gigantic omnibus, which is terribly cumbersome.

Score these deals and more at the Google Play Store comic sale. There are so many great titles in the sale that I can not recommend enough. There are also some new finds that I am eager to read.

Google Play: Marvel Avengers Comic Book Sale Up to 80% Off

Posted by on April 29, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Google Play: Marvel Avengers Comic Book Sale Up to 80% Off

I am loving these Google Play comic deals. This time around there is an up to 80% off Avengers comics sale. You can figure out why, pretty soon the new Avengers II movie is going to be out! Check out a few back-stories, side stories, and more via this sale.

I am not sure what is up with Google play, but the official ‘sale’ page only has nine comics in it. However, a quick search for Avengers on the Google Play store revealed well over 100 comics and comic collections on sale. You really need to check out the ‘all sale’ link.

Let us talk about some of the fantastic deals in this sale. The New Avengers Vol. 1: Everything Dies was $25.48 and is now on sale for $5.09. I have to say that title is rather ominous, but readers seem to like it. As one reviewer says:

Very solid TPB. Read went very quick. Not a knock against it, more of a compliment. Would make a good movie.

If your appetite was wet in Guardians of The Galaxy, get your fill of Thanos in Avengers Vs. Thanos: Volume 1. Originally $25.48, the comic book is also on sale for $5.09. This volume collects comics from different series and different time periods. The volume includes:

  • Iron Man (1968) #55
  • Captain Marvel (1968) #25-30
  • Marvel Feature (1971) #12
  • Daredevil (1964) #105-107
  • Captain Marvel (1968) #31-33
  • Avengers (1963) #125
  • Warlock (1972) #9-11
  • Avengers Annual (1967) #7
  • Marvel Two -In-One Annual #2
  • and material from Logan’s Run #6

Seriously, that is a lot of comics for just over $5. All of these comics feature Thanos as the villain – so they fit together well in the volume. I have to say, I prefer Ronan over Thanos.

If Stan Lee is your idol, then check out his Avengers Masterworks Vol. 1 with Jack Kirby. These two are comic book legends (I need not tell you), and now is an excellent time to get your hands on a fantastic comic book. Originally $17.33, the book is on sale for $5.09.

There are many additional comics in this sale. Prices start at just a few dollars and go up to around $50 like this Avengers Vs. X-Men Companion that was $101.97 and is now $47.72. This massive volume of comics features some of the best stories ever according to some reviewers.

Free Comic Book Day Across Canada (2nd May)

Posted by on April 26, 2015 at 11:25 PM

Free Comic Book Day Across Canada (2nd May)

Do you know what comes on the first Saturday every May? If you love comic books, then you already know the answer to that question, but just as a reminder – the 2nd of May is Free Comic Book Day across Canada! So head into your local comic book store on Free Comic Book Day and treat yourself to a free comic.

Comic book stores big and small across North America participate in Free Comic Book Day on the first Saturday every May. There is no purchase necessary to claim your free comic book, so this is truly a freebie to snag. However, stores get to decide which comic books to give away for free. While this event is free for everybody, it is not a “free-for-all” in the selection process. The past two years there have been between 44 and 57 different free comics available, so I am sure you will be able to choose something.

Depending on which store you visit on the 2nd of May, you can choose up to 10 free comic books. That means you can truly reap the benefits of the selection available. This is a great event for the young and old. Anyone can enjoy a good comic book. There are previews of the available comic books available on the Free Comic Book Day website, so take a quick gander to see what is available for you this Free Comic Book Day 2015.

Some of the comic books included are:

  • Dark Circle Comics # 1
  • Spongebob Freestyle Funnies
  • Transformers Robots in Disguise # 0
  • Terrible Lizard # 1
  • The Tick
  • TMNT Prelude to Vengeance
  • Worlds of Aspen
  • and much more

With a total of 50 different comics to choose from for free this year, you are bound to find something. I may even pick up a couple for my son to read since the pages are so colourful and interesting in comics. Of course each store may have different hours of operation, and the free comics are available on a first-come first-serve basis, so be sure to call ahead to avoid any disappointment.

Google Play: Eisner Nominees Up to 66% Off Sale

Posted by on April 24, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Google Play: Eisner Nominees Up to 66% Off Sale

For all my fellow comic geeks out there, The Google Play Store is having another sweet sale. This up to 66% off comic book sale features select Eisner Award Nominees including The Walking Dead, Saga, and The Wicked + The Divine.

I am not one for ‘popular’ comics. In fact, if I know something is popular, I generally steer clear of it (I have still never read Harry Potter…). However, I borrowed the Saga volumes #1 and #2 from the library as I heard they were good. Good is an understatement, they are fantastic! On my recent book exchange in Victoria, I had the opportunity to add the physical copies of Saga vol. #1 and #2 to my collection. However, I am missing #3 and #4. In this sale, Saga, Vol. 3 and Saga, Vol. 4 are each on sale from $15.79 down to $8.41. If you are new to the series, make sure to pick up the earlier volumes as well. They are imperative to understanding the story line.

Now, I have a thing for volumes because it keeps them all neat and tidy, but the single issues are less expensive. Here is a bit of quick math:

  • Volumes (6 issues) = $8.41
  • Single Issues x 6 ($1.04 x 6) = $6.24

To put it another way, a single issue costs you $1.04. If you divide the price of the volumes up into the number of issues they contain, each issue would cost $1.40. Given that, I highly recommend loading up your computer or tablet with single issues. They will cost you less in the end.

The bulk of this sale is single issues and collected volumes of The Walking Dead. I have not read The Walking Dead, but my fellow writer Anna has. She said:

I read The Walking Dead graphic novels a few years ago. I think the order of things was something like this – watched Season 1 of the TV show, then read all the graphic novels I could get my hands on. This meant I was a few seasons ahead of the TV show! The novels were excellent… very dark, as I am sure you can imagine. I felt they were more gory and hard-hitting than the show though, sometimes the TV show tames things down a bit. If you enjoy the TV show at all – get the books! They’re even better, IMO.

As I mentioned, there are both collected volumes (6 comics) and single issues. Honestly, the single issues are a better price than the collected volumes. For example, The Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye and all the other volumes are on sale for $8.41. However, each single issue of The Walking Dead will cost you only $1.04 – like this first issue The Walking Dead #1.

There are several other great graphic novels on sale too. The art in Pretty Deadly is amazing and the storyline behind The Wicked + The Divine really interests me as well.

If you are unsure if you will like a comic, then view the ‘free sample’ Google offers for each book.

Just Released! Star Wars Comic Books Were $140 | Now $79.80 & Free Shipping @ Chapters Canada

Posted by on January 29, 2015 at 7:49 AM

Just Released! Star Wars Comic Books Were $140 | Now $79.80 & Free Shipping @ Chapters Canada

Star Wars and comic book fans should check out this fantastic new release. Star Wars: The Original Marvel Years Omnibus Volume 1 was $140 but now is only $79.80 plus this order qualifies for free shipping.

Marvel just released on January 27th, a brand new re-mastered volume of all of the Star Wars Comic books #1-44. This massive omnibus is a fully bound hardcover edition. If you love the original Star Wars comics from the 70’s or are a big fan of the movies, now is your opportunity to relive all the original details.

In order to receive this great price you must join Chapters’ free rewards program- Plum. Chapters will give you an option to join during your purchase if you are not already a member during the checkout process. You cannot checkout as a guest to join, you must have or create an account to use the free rewards program discount. If you choose not to join the Plum rewards program the price of the book will go up to $84.

This release goes hand in hand with the license for Star Wars comic books returning to Marvel after having a home at Dark Horse Media for over 20 years. To read a little more about the announcement of this new compilation volume, check out this article at is part of the SyFy channel and they surely have the scoop.

Here is a little more info about what to expect from this massive comic book compellation according to

It’s the return of the Jedi to Marvel in this opening volume. The rebels face a wealth of new perils. Luke goes back to Tatooine, Leia battles alone, Han and Chewie play the deadly Big Game and Darth Vader hunts for answers! Revisit all your old favorites and discover some new ones!

This Star Wars omnibus edition is still very new and is only available at few stores in Canada currently. Amazon has this edition for $88.20 plus free shipping and claims to be able to have it to me by February 6th. Though the deal is still a little sweeter at Chapters Canada, Chapters is estimating 3-5 weeks for delivery. I suspect though this book was just released, it is taking a little longer to physically hit Canadian shelves. Your other option is to order this book on Ebay for $189 USD. Ebay estimates this would be $234 Canadian. I guess everyone is looking to make a buck.

Reviews are not readily available yet. Very few Canadians have this edition right now as it was just released. There is one extremely long review about how great the entire Star Wars series is on This part of the review sums up the reviewers thoughts on this new compilation for those of us who are not super fans.

This book comes very highly recommended. May the Force be with you, always!

This order qualifies for free shipping  as it is over the $25 limit, though as I mentioned they are estimating a 3-5 week delivery range.

Bargainmoosers are you a Luke Skywalker or a Darth Vader fan?

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)

July 29 Coupon Code: Unlimited Subscription Only $0.99 TODAY (Expired)

Posted by on July 29, 2014 at 11:30 AM 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

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

Get awesome comics from Top Shelf for cheap from Comixology!

Click here to shop the Top Shelf Sale @ 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.
