    This sale finally gives me an excuse to get round to buying the HS/AoD crossover.

    Highly recommend Witchblade from #80 onwards (or the Witch Hunt collection) which is when Ron Marz took over and it got good. ESPECIALLY from when Stjepan Sejic came on board for art duties.

    Issue 80 was free at some point, might still be.

    Happy Free Comic Book Day everyone!

    No new sales at Comixology, but they are getting into the FCBD spirit with two free sections on their homepage:

    an Image Free Firsts section with an easy-to-add-all 142 free number ones; nothing new, but all together for the first time iirc

    22 of their Comixology Submit comics are free, including 7 that weren't part of the SSX bundle

    So even if you don't have local comic book stores, or can't make the trek out today, there are over 200 free books at Comixology.com today. And at least some of the the actual FCBD books will likely be added later. And Darkhorse.com has their usual freebies and 12 new freebies as part of their May the Fourth Be With You sale.

    Nothing new at Comixology, but the Dark Horse sale continues, and Amazon has a literal ton of Star Wars books on sale today.

    May the Fourth be with you!

    Today's Marvel Monday is a Jason Aaron sale.

    They have it as a bundle, 47 issues for only $45.99, saving you 53 cents! But then, we all should have at least five of these books already (the previous freebies).

    X-Men: Schism 1-5

    Incredible Hulk vol 3 1-15 with 7.1

    Astonishing Spider-man and Wolverine 1-6

    Ultimate Comics: Captain America 1-4

    Wolverine: Weapon X 1-16

    Also, from IDW, we get a 24 hour sale on 24.

    24: Underground issue 1 is 99 cents, and the 338 page 24 Omnibus is $5.99. Anyone ever read these? I like the series, but was unaware of the comics until now.

    A fourth new sale almost snuck by me. Three of the Castle collections/adaptations from Marvel are on sale for $4.99 each. I've never sampled these; any good, true to the show/novels?

    Another Dark Horse sale just popped up, this time on their 2014 Eisner nominees; 41 books for ~50% off, unknown duration.

    47 Ronin 1-5
    The Adventures of Superhero Girl
    Bad Houses
    Baltimore: The Infernal Train 1-3
    The Black Beetle: No Way Out 1-4
    Colder 1-5

    Some really great stories in there. I'm beginning to think that Dark Horse might be my favorite publisher.

    One new sale today at Comixology, a Brian Michael Bendis sale that ends 5/12.

    Scarlet 1-5
    Brilliant 1-4

    Fortune and Glory collection $9.99
    Goldfish collection $4.99
    Jinx collection $12.99
    Takio collection $4.99
    Torso collection $4.99

    Those five collections can be bought in a bundle for $29.99 too.

    I like his mainstream work, but don't think I've tried any of these indy series. Any recommendations?

    I've read Goldfish, Jinx, and Torso. I think I liked Torso the best, but they are all similar in style. Heavy on dialogue and character development with little bits of action here and there. I'd give all three of them 4/5 with Torso maybe being a 4.5/5. (I've also read Fire, which is not on sale, and have the same impression of it.) It's Bendis' indy work like these and Powers that made me understand why some people find him to be great at writing dialogue. I think his dialogue in all of these is very well done. For some reason, this does not translate over to his current work on ANXM and UXM for me, in which I do not like his dialogue for those characters/stories.
