    Man, you know what? DC and Marvel really ought to lower the per issue price to .99 for any comic that's at least thirty or forty years old. Because seriously, why not?

  • ElderlycrawfishElderlycrawfish Registered User regular
    I'd be buying a shitload more comics if they were .99. That's such an impulse price that I would barely think twice with loading up a cart and clicking buy.

    Yeah I already spent over $150 last month on Comixology and it was only on .99 sale stuff. Also I was a newcomer to digital comic world.

    So bring on the sales!

    I hadn't bought a comic book since 1999 or 2000 before ComiXology got me back into them last year. I experienced price shock when I first saw the newest X-Men and Batman issues were $4 each. If it weren't for the .99 sales I probably would have said "fuck this", deleted the app, and never given it another look.

    I almost want to say don't read Runaways. Its too amazing to turn so awful, just to turn again into not existing.

    Aw bummer, I thought it was volume 1 of USM and got excited for a second. Passed over the recent sales but could have easily thrown $6 down on it.

    It's finally happened to me.

    I literally bought all 18 of those issues last weekend.

    Fuckity fuck fuck.

  • ElderlycrawfishElderlycrawfish Registered User regular
    Oh hey, I guess the comixology app/account now syncs with the marvel app/account and you don't have to email anyone about it. It also works both ways, so marvel titles you buy on comixology can now show up on the marvel side.

    Not really a huge deal overall but it's about time they did it.

    I'm still going to keep the two different apps on my tablet though, just because it's easier to find Marvel's free titles every week on the Marvel app than it is on the Comixology app.

  • ElderlycrawfishElderlycrawfish Registered User regular
    Yeah I do the same. It's just nice to know that it's linked now and you don't have to jump through too many hoops.

    eh, Whedon's run is solid and the Civil War Runaways/Young Avengers minseries is pretty fun

    but yeah don't go past those

    The Moore run tried something different

    The Immonen run is never to be mentioned again, under penalty of torture

    X-Men sale that I swear was just done a month ago.

    But that's not the news worthy item. ComiXology finally added a wishlist feature!

  • MaximumMaximum Registered User regular
    Wow, 99¢ for some Austen & Milligan X-Men.

    That's still about 98¢ too much.

  • BalefuegoBalefuego Registered User regular
    they should add the Lobdell era and later day Claremont just to complete the shitpile

    Wolverine sale for Marvel Friday. Totally getting Old Man Logan.

    OML was pretty standalone, right? I don't need to know anything about Civil War or whatever, kind of like how you needed to know what happened in Legion Quest to understand why AoA happened?

    EDIT: Oh crap, they snuck in a Nightwing 101 sale just after I purchased OML. Not seeing anything I feel totally compelled to buy, but admittedly I don't really know much about the titles that are part of the sale.

    Bullio on

    As far as I could tell when I read it, Old Man Logan doesn't directly reference any other stories. It's completely standalone.

    It actually connects a bit to Millar's 1985 book and his FF run through the Marquis of Death Villain, but you definitely don't need to read either of those - they are just some cool little easter egg moments if you have.

    The Jason Aaron run is good right?

    Spoiler:
  • Centipede DamascusCentipede Damascus Registered User regular
    Jason Aaron on Wolverine? It's fantastic.

    Very good indeed.

    Start with Wolverine: Weapon X. It was the Wolverine series Aaron wrote before taking over regular Wolverine, and I found it to be his best arcs. It had 15 issues or so before it was relaunched/renumbered as adjectiveless Wolverine.

    Hoping a Volume Two comes out soon

    Hmm, what's left is Wolverine 1-20, 300-304. That's enough for a second omnibus.

    Actually before the weapon x series he did the excellent "Get Mystique" arc in issues #62-65 of vol. 3, and a kickass mini called Wolverine: Manifest Destiny, both of which get paid off in his run on vol. 4

    and all of which is included in the Wolverine by Jason Aaron Vol. 1 omnibus

    it's a pretty rad deal, off of Amazon 68 bucks for a big hardcover of 25 issues plus extra material from other issues/series

    Yeah, the Iron Fist omnibus I have is big enough to brain someone with and it is like 18 issues, I think

    I have the Simonson Thor and McFarlane Spidey ones.

    I just sit there on the edge of my bed power lifting those suckers.

    If I ever win the lotto or have an absurd amount of money to spare, I would forgo my "digital only except for very specific exceptions" rule and spend all my days tracking down a complete collection of the Marvel omni's. But I can't even afford one of them during a normal month, so I don't own any of them.

    If I didn't have the first 3 AoA trades I'd seriously consider getting that one, though. Skipping a bunch of meals for a month wouldn't be so bad, I could do with losing a couple more lbs anyway.
