Somebody posted a screenshot of Comixology the day Batman vs Superman was released: http://i.imgur.com/O8rafjM.png. Very classy indeed. Looks like a huge ad. And the main sale DC was offering was a Batman and Superman collection sale... up to 58% off. It seems to me a wasted opportunity (like the movie itself, by the way, which is not a bad movie at all, but it's certainly not the movie these characters deserved).

Marvel Monday is on the recent Hawkeye by the awesome creative team of Matt Fraction and David Aja: https://www.comixology.com/Hawkeye-Sale/page/10175

Star Wars Legends Collections Sale! (6 Items): https://www.comixology.com/Star-Wars...ale/list/10594

Ending today, from Image, a sale on Jeff Lemire's Plutona which actually includes mostly Descender books: https://www.comixology.com/Plutona-Sale/page/10146

Also ending today, from Dynamite a sale on Vampirella (shocking, I know): https://www.comixology.com/Vampirella-Sale/page/10147

Regarding the Aspen bundle, it is strange that so many of the first volumes from the lowest tier are included in the omnibus editions from the second tier (Fathom, Charismagic, Executive Assistant Iris, Soulfire, and maybe more). It is already frustrating (but understandable) getting repeats when buying different bundles... but getting repeats from the same bundle is a little bit excessive.

In any case, I think I am going to skip this one. I already have lots of unread bikinis from previous Dynamite bundles.

By the way, there's an article about HB book bundles at Publisher's Weekly: http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/b...k-revenue.html

Quote:
Allen said upcoming releases include HB’s first manga bundle, an LGBTQ bundle for Pride Month (in June), and the debut of several new comics publishers, including Aspen Comics and a yet-to-be-named “biggie.”
I almost forgot: Welcome to the forum, socnsum1, and thanks for the updates.
