While all the other fools out there wait in line at 3:00 for their Black Friday bargains, comics readers won’t have to venture any farther than their computers.
DC Comcis has announced (via IGN) their Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, which include hundreds of discounted Batman and Vertigo comic book titles. For Black Friday, DC is honoring the Dark Knight’s 75th anniversary by making 750 Batman titles available for just 99 cents. Starting November 25th, classics like "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #1-#4", "Batman: The Long Halloween #1-#12", and Scott Snyder’s "Batman Vol. 2" issues will be available for less than a buck. The sale will run for seven days, ending on December 1st.
Then, for Cyber Monday, DC will discount a cornucopia of their Vertigo graphic novels. Whereas the Batman sale only discounted individual issues, the Vertigo sale will only mark down graphic novel collections to $4.99 a piece. The selections stretch across Vertigo’s celebrated publishing history, from "John Constantine, Hellblazer Vo.1," to "Y: The Last Man Vol.1," to "American Vampire Vol.1." The sale starts and ends on December 1st.
While you don’t need to set an alarm for this sale, you may still want to rise early: There's a lot of great reading to be had.
