A few new sales today. Also, I neglected to mention that there are a few new freebies in the standard freebie section;

and some new bundles too.

A sale from Marvel until 1/4/14 on Deadpool: The Gauntlet Infinite Comics 1-13 at $.99 each. Issues 1-2 were free in the past so you may be able to sample before you buy.

Today begins a 13 day holiday sale from DC on Graphic Novels; 28 top sellers for $4.99 each. Most are trade collections, which I try not to buy; but I see at least one original graphic novel, Brian Azzarello's Joker from 2008.

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you all are enjoying your families today; or if stuck at work like me, a good Christmas comic or two. I'll be reading the Ambush Bug Stocking Stuffer and Clerks Holiday Special today.

No new sales that I see so far, but several new bundles on Comixology if you haven't looked at them recently.
https://www.comixology.com/browse-bundle

A new freebie from Jet City Comics, Wool #1.
https://www.comixology.com/Wool-1-of...lzdC9saXN0MzQx

Not sure how long this has been available at this price, but I just noticed that the old DC Comics Presents #26, with the first appearance of the then New Teen Titans, is 99 cents.

As I hoped yet feared, Dark Horse is having a massive Star Wars sale in anticipation of them losing the license on the first. Every book is 50% off, or all 28353 pages for $300.
https://digital.darkhorse.com/browse/brand/1/
https://digital.darkhorse.com/profil...ll-megabundle/

I have probably spent close to $300 to own a quarter of it over the past few sales, so I should have waited. To buy the rest of what I don't have would cost be nearly $500, so I'm thinking about the bundle.

Fortunately I have no interest whatsoever in Star Wars comics. I remember the first ones Marvel put out by Infantino but haven't read any or been tempted to since. I have no real interest in the films any more actually. Loved the first ones when they came out but they have not aged well and the sequels lost my interest totally to the point where I have never got around to watching the third one.

Still musing over the Image sale....I'll certainly catch up with Walking Dead, wondering about Peter Panzerfaust - read the first 5 and they were brilliant. May wait for a book version.

I bit, but not on the $300 bundle. Even though I own most of them in print, I can see offloading those at some point and even if Marvel decides to offer them digitally, which seems unlikely, they won't be at these prices. I mostly liked the John Ostrander stuff so I bought all of Republic, Clone Wars, Legacy and Dawn of the Jedi along with a few other scattered stories. There really were some gems in those runs.

Pretty much off topic, but I'm not sure if I've mentioned that my main forum has started doing monthly Comic Book reading Challenges. We have a different genre each month, and the goal is to concentrate your reading on that genre. We have a thread for each month where we share our thoughts and plans, giving advice or whatever. They sprung out from DVD/film Challenges that we've been doing for years over at DVDTalk, but these new comic book Challenges are great for giving some order to our reading backlogs. October is horror month, December is holiday, January is movie/TV related comics, etc etc. I figure if anyone is interested they can start the project here or feel free to join us at DVDTalk.

The strongest and best issues are JMS written ones. The annual and Lost Tales issues are ok.

New sale at Comixology from Boom on Adventure Time ends 1/5/14; 67 singles and 9 collections.

https://www.comixology.com/Adventure...XNlbA&list5051

New sale at Dark Horse on Conan and Red Sonja ends 1/4/14, 61 singles. Be careful, as some are Dynamite so you may own them via Comixology and/or Humble Bundle.
