Image has a couple digital comics sales going on right now, so let’s have a look.

First there’s the “Image Recommended Reading Sale.”  This consists of Bitch Planet, Descender, Monstress (which had a very good year for awards), Paper Girls, Rat Queens, Seven to Eternity and The Wicked and the Divine.

You’re probably going to find a fair number of fans who say each of those is their favorite comic, but my pick of that set would be Descender.  The story of a young robot in a star system where robots have been outlawed and ending up right in the middle of a robot uprising is a great space opera by Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen.  Sometimes gentler than you expect, sometimes very much not gentle and great art.  (Note: You want the $3.99 Vol. 1, not the $15.99 V. 1.  The more expensive one contains V. 1-3 of the regular number and will cost you a dollar more than the individual volumes together.)

Now, if you’re looking for some unusually intricate art in your comics you have two really top notch options to scratch that itch here.  Monstress and Sana Tekeda are definitely having a moment.  Seven to Eternity also has Jerome Opeña really outdoing himself, too.

Image’s other sale right now?  Saga gets its own sale.  After all, it’s Saga.
