Get ye to Amazon!

Standard

If you check out the Amazon Kindle app you can find screaming deals all over on Marvel Comics. I picked up both volumes of The Vision, the New Mutants Epic Collection  (500+ pages), and the Black Panther Panther’s Rage stuff for like  $12. Swoop in and get some comics, there are tons of recent books and big collections, with a lot of them under  $5.

There Is Gravy On This Comic Book

Standard

The Obscura Collected Edition is here, at least in digital form, and damn is it gorgeous. Physical copies won’t be far behind, I can’t wait to hold the actual book in my hands. Say, who is that smart, handsome fella with a blurb on the back cover?

It's Carl... Oh hey, another name back here looks familiar

Big thanks to Fifth Dimension Comics and everyone involved in Obscura, it is beautiful. I never thought I would get to have a cover blurb on a book, especially one this effing good.
