If you haven’t read The Vision, then it’s a bit of a bargain there.

Picked it up equally dirt cheap on a previous Amazon digital sale, but haven't gotten round to it yet.
Perhaps my only 'modern' Marvel purchase from the past few years- this former Marvel Zombie has regained sentience.

I look at something like this and whimsically imagine that it's nothing more than market research.
"Will we be able to sell road-kill like Secret Empire even at €0.99?" some 22 year old intern ponders.

Hard not to recommend the Walt Simonson Thor volumes at these prices.
I might give some of the 70's horror stuff a go- not familiar with it at all really.

In which case, I'm delighted that the Panini Marvel collections I subscribe to will be filled with this over the coming six months. *sigh*

Ive read some of Tomb of Dracula before, it’s great because Dracula is the protagonist, so it’s a villain POV comic which makes it a very cool read imo.

I took the plunge and went for the 2 Simonson Thor volumes, Doctor Aphra (for the Kev Walker art) and the Dracula one. Should be OK for under £3. Anything else worth a look? I have Vision already.

That Master of the Kung-Fu Epic collection came out this week, and appears to be the complete series. I hear it’s real good. I bought.

Looks like the overall sale is now over, only a very small handful of recent releases are now on sale. Dang, I was waffling on picking up the Steranko Nick Fury collections, guess I missed my chance.

I'm not sure it's a company-wide thing but the Middlesbrough branch of Forbidden Planet is having an absolutely massive clear out of trades and GN's to make way for...  Frakking Funko Pops (as if they don't dominate the store already).

In the last four weeks I've picked up over twenty books all for around a fiver (including nine volumes of B.P.R.D Hell on Earth).

Was dropping off a bunch of crap to the Oxfam shop in Victoria Road and noticed they had a complete run of Crisis in the comic box. Took a lot of willpower not to start flicking through for the issues I'm missing.

How much were they?

I need to pick these up at some stage.

Fans of Zenith should probably get over to 2000 AD's store pretty damn sharpish, if they fancy getting the entire run in hardback for under 40 quid.
