    So I guess Amazon really wants to get rid of those huge books? That's the only reason I can think of for this insane price drop.

    If this is a mistake on Amazons part do they still honor the prices? I just wonder because maybe someone was doing the price knock downs for trades (from 19.99 to 14.99) and clicked the wrong column or something.

    As long as Amazon doesn't put more than thirty dollars on my credit card I don't care if it's a mistake. Now if it is a mistake and they refuse to send the books that's OK too as long as I don't get charged.

    They'd probably honor it; their customer service is really good. Once UPS lost some weights I ordered from them, so they ended up refunding the purchase and having UPS send the item to me again.

    So, Invincible Complete Vol 1, the two Daredevil Omnibuses, the Cap Omnibus, and the Criminal Omnibus (and I've never read Criminal)

    All for 75 bucks? Awesome.

    Death of Cap, Iron Man, Madman Gargantua, and Criminal for <$60 shipped (with Amazon Prime)? Yes, please.

    Yeah, so that huge omnibus sale. Am I doing this searching/filtering right? I see a lot of stuff, sure, but I can't find anything I like. I've been through eight pages of stuff that doesn't interest me even a little bit.

    best bet is to go through the bestsellers list. Most of it is in there.

    Also:


    -Secret Wars
    -Secret Wars II
    -Wolverine
    -Ultimates
    -Death of Captain America (Been wanting this since I got the 1st Omnibus)
    -Invincible Iron Man
    -Kick-Ass
    -Madman Gargantua
    -Invincible Library 1
    -Invincible Ult. v3
    -HOWARD THE DUCK OMNIBUS (backordered, but still HOWARD THE DUCK!)

    I also threw in the new Penny Arcade book for the heck of it.

    This sale is RIDICULOUS.

    I'm just going to go with Madman Gargantua. Not a lot of money around, but that is too good of a deal to pass up. I was looking on Ebay, trying to guess what the normal price is, and it is going for more than 100 dollars on there.

    I already have the first Invincible Library so I'm a bit pissed that I spent the $80 on it the first time. At least my comic shop still gave me a good discount on it.

    Kinda wish the Acts of Vengeance omnibus was part of this deal though.

    Several of The EC Archives are also on sale.

    It looks like a lot of the Marvel hardcovers have been marked down to $14.99 as well, and not just the omnibuses.

    So it's looking more like Amazon just wants to liquidate most of their comics inventory? Good for the consumers I guess but they sure must be desperate to get them sold.

    I'm interested to know what my LCS owner thinks of this since he's in the opinion that eventually Amazon's and others discount techniques will cause the price of trades and hardcovers to go up. I don't think he's bitter about losing business it's just that he's looking at the economics of it.

    Wonder how long this deal will last? There are definitely some other hardcovers for sale that I want but I don't want to go gung-ho on spending with my credit card.

    I ended up buying 8 books. Cancelled Invincible because I actually didn't really like Invincible after the first few arcs, and figured that canceling it would make room for someone who'd enjoy it more instead. Bought both Daredevils, Wolverine, and Invincible Iron Man instead.

    I wish I could get Avengers Forever, Stan Lee's Fantastic Four, Amazing Fantasy, Stan Lee's X-Men, Herbie, and Ultimates too, but I just caaaannnn't.

    Why would you cancel the Invincible library? 24 issues for 15 bucks is an easy blind-buy.

    Because I can't afford to order absolutely everything I want!

    If I could, I'd end up charging like $200 total.

    Also, I already have the first Invincible hardcover.

    Alright, i just bought Avengers Forever, X-Men, and Fantastic Four.

    I should probably step away from the computer.

    Though if X-Men has gone up 5 million percent, they're probably out of stock by now.

    And Secret Wars 2 has an over 3 million percent increase. Regardless of the quality of the story you have to admit it's such a great deal for the content, around 1,200 pages I think.

    The great thing about Avengers Forever is that while it's listed as 12 issues, Busiek packed so much story into it you actually are getting about 24 issues worth of story (compared to say recent Marvel stories).

    It's gold, Jerry, gold!

    The first one is good (a bit dated but it's fun like having all your old toys fight on some planet). The second is not, but at this price do it.

    Avengers Forever, the Bendis and Brubaker DD Omnibuses are the other best bets for this deal.

    [Bizarro Brevoort]And you know, it's a shame Marvel has to resort to selling omnibuses dirt cheap in order to get sales grabs instead of focusing on story[/Bizarro Brevoort], hurpdie durpie durp.

    I have the Secret Wars trade, and it does hold up fairly well and is still a fun read.

    And New X-Men was on sale? The Grant Morrison New X-Men? Fuucccckk, I can't believe I missed that.
