I’m not sure if the graphic novel prices can get any lower. I’m not sure that I’ve seen eBooks for sale at less than $0.99, but if anybody was going to start selling digital tpbs for $0.50, it would probably be Marvel. It does seem like $0.99 is going to be rock bottom for this, so go and have a nice browse.
What’s that? You’d like some recommendations? Sure. We can help you out. And the best part is, it’s a digital tpb for a buck, so how mad can you really get if it’s not to your taste.
You like Spider-Man? Here are a couple interesting bits:
The Death of Jean DeWolf is an early Peter David work that got a lot of attention when it came out.
It’s a bit of a forgotten series, but longtime Marvel staffer and current Marvel Games Executive Creative Direct Bill Roseman did a mini-series with Guy Davis called Deadline that was a lot of fun and is packed in the middle of this Daily Bugle tpb.
Like Thor? The first two volumes of Walt Simonson’s run are on fire sale (they’ll want you to pay slightly more for V.3, apparently)
Or if you want to go back to the original, here’s 512 pages of Lee/Kirby Goodness
Kurt Busiek and Sean Chen also had an excellent run on Iron Man, but there’s only one volume in the sale:
Like Fantastic Four? Here’s a volume from the classic Waid/Wieringo run.
Have you read the original Jim Starlin Captain Marvel and Warlock runs that introduced Thanos and the Infinity Gems? (They were not “stones” in the comics.) If not, this is a great time to get some culture.
There’s more there, including Steranko’s Nick Fury, the pleasant surprise of the Robinson/ACO Nick Fury and… look, at this point we’re just assuming you’ve read the King/Walta Vision. Plenty to browse, so just choose your platform.
Todd Allen wears a lot of hats. At various times he’s been (alphabetically), a bouncer, college professor, humor columnist, Internet producer and an NBA/WNBA Beat Writer, among other things. He’s the author of Economics of Digital Comics. You should probably read it.
