DC Memorial Day Sale


If you didn’t already know DC has a big digital sale going on right now across multiple platforms.  [Amazon Kindle, Comixology, DC Comics App, Google Play, Apple] Advertised as books up to 85% off.  A lot of graphic novels and collections are priced at $5.99 right now.  I usually buy at least a couple of volumes when these sales come around.  This time I picked up:

  1. DC’s the New Frontier by Darwin Cook
  2. 52 Volume One by Geoff Johns
  3. 52 Volume Two by Geoff Johns
  4. Batman and Robin Eternal Volume One by James Tynion IV and Scott Snyder
  5. Batman and Robin Eternal Volume Two by James Tynion IV and Scott Snyder

I have a kindle fire so I always buy my books on Amazon because it makes them available in my comixology account too; and if it’s in your comixology account you can also read it in the DC comic app which I like for being able to see just my DC books.  I haven’t decided if I want to get anything else this time or not.  I’m trying to decide if the three volumes of Future’s End are worth $18 to me.  Or maybe grab a couple of Min-Series collections?  Or should I start getting the 1980’s Flash run? Hmmm…

Free Comic Book Day 2018

 18-05-05-16-10-29-729_deco.jpgSo Free Comic Book Day has come and gone and I have finally gotten around to making a little post about it.   If you read my blog you know that I had to have surgery on the Thursday before and wasn’t even sure if I’d be able to go.  There have been quite a few years I haven’t and it always annoyed me so I decided I wasn’t going to be thwarted this year.

I was feeling alright when I started out, I mean I felt ok, not great but ok.  However we hit just about every pothole in town on the way there and I’ll admit I was feeling a bit regretful of my decision by the time we got there.  For more LOLs they had moved the area from the upstairs to down in the basement this year, which meant navigating the staircase of doom to get down to where the action was.

It was fairly busy and there were a lot of kids there running around.  They were doing 10 free items for everybody, 20 for those wearing superhero t-shirts, and 30 for anyone in full costume.  Superhero T-Shirt; Check; 20 items for me; out of a selection of FCBD comics, back issues, and promotional items the store saves up from the year.  They had plenty of stuff to give away but most of the gold and silver tier books were gone by the time I arrived.  There were so many little kids there and they were starting to get low on the all ages comics too so I didn’t take anything from that table even though I really wanted that DC Superhero Girls comic and the Little Mermaid one.  Here’s what I ended up with:

  1. FCBD Avengers
  2. FCBD Riverdale
  3. DC Nation #0
  4. Marvel Rising #0
  5. FCBD Lady Mechanika
  6. FCBD Doctor Who
  7. FCBD Tank Girl
  8. Challengers of the Unknown #1
  9. Hawkeye and Mockingbird #1
  10. Showcase 94 Huntress #5
  11. Showcase 94 Arkham #4
  12. Showcase 94 Arkham #3
  13. Showcase 93 Huntress #10
  14. Vigilante #21
  15. New Titans #94
  16. New Titans #95
  17. New Titans #96
  18. Team Titans Annual #1
  19. Superman #18
  20. Marvel Universe Magazine

Afterwards I went home and took a really long nap.  How did you guys make out, anything cool?  [Oh, and that top image is just me playing around with photo apps and transforming myself into 2D.]

Doing Ok Here

Just wanted to drop a little note and let everyone know that I had the surgery yesterday and it went well as far as we can tell.  I was able to have the microscopic outpatient surgery thankfully.  I spent most of yesterday sleeping the anesthesia off and I’m extremely sore but up and about today.   Expected to be back to a halfway normal routine in 2 to 4 weeks.  If I’m feeling ok tomorrow I’m going to hit the LCS for Free Comic Book day, if not some of my family are going out for me.   Thanks for your well wishes and hope everyone out there is doing fine.
