Are you ready for Black Friday? It may not be the kind of Thanksgiving we’ve had in the past, and people may not be lining up cheek to cheek waiting for Black Friday sales to start. But if you’re shopping online — and who isn’t? — the days from Back Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday will offer sales on a kabillion comics, graphic novels and collectibles. Here’s a first round of goodies from our inbox; if you had any benjamins saved up, get ready to say goodbye to them.
In addition, check out your local comics shops websites for any deals they are offering. It’s been a tough year for most retailers, but there’s still time to show your support.
ALERT: If you scroll all the way to the end of these listings, there’s a list of seldom discounted IDW Artist Editions which will be available on Monday.
Enjoy your turkey, stay safe wherever you may be and Happy Shopping!
