On The Cheap: Image’s NYCC Sale Has So Many Good Comics Even We Can’t Narrow It Down


To kick off this weekend's New York Comic-Con, Comixology is currently hosting a pretty massive sale on Image books, and look. I realize that the entire point of the "On The Cheap" column is to help you narrow down your choices into the absolute best of the crop, but this time, I honestly don't know if I'm up to the task.

I mean, there's just too much good stuff in there --- and what's more, it's almost all stuff that we've talked about a whole heck of a lot here at CA. Sex Criminals, The Wicked + The Divine, Southern Bastards, Criminal, and a whole lot more besides. It is, at last, too much to choose from. But I'll do my best.

DC And KFC Just Put Out A Comic About The Colonel Sanders Of Earth-3, Remember This For Next Year’s Eisners

KFC: The Colonel Of Two Worlds

So you remember a few months ago at San Diego, when Kentucky Fried Chicken put out a comic about Colonel Sanders and his various adventures as part of an attempt to get comic book fans to eat even more fried chicken than the not insignificant amount that we already do? At the time, I wondered whether this was going to be the start of something bigger, like an ongoing series, or maybe even a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen-style shared universe that would team him up with the Burger King and Wendy in a battle against Ronald McDonald.

It turns out that I was wrong, but not because I was thinking too big. I was thinking too small. This week, KFC and DC Comics put out story called "The Colonel of Two Worlds," where the late Harland Sanders is not only incorporated into the DC Universe, but into the DC Multiverse as a character important enough to have an evil counterpart on Earth-3.

‘Sabrina’s Haywire Hexes’ Shows The Dire, Horrifying Consequence Of Witchcraft: Slapstick Comedy [Preview]



Sabrina the Teenage Witch has been having a rough couple of years. These days, her most pressing concerns revolve around things like inadvertently causing a zombie apocalypse that resulted in the complete destruction of Riverdale, and, just across the border in another parallel universe, trying to avoid being sacrificed to Lovecraftian horrors and get Harvey Kinkle to notice her. But...

Comixology Announces Print Versions Of Submit Titles As New York Comic Con Exclusives

heathen feat

I love pretty much everything about digital comics. The accessibility, the fact that creators can reach a wider audience through the internet, even the fact that they don't take up a whole lot of space in your home! Those are all great things about the format. This year at New York Comic Con, however, Comixology is going to ask the question I think we've all been waiting for: What if those digital comics... were in print?

That, it seems, is the premise behind a pretty cool project that they're unveiling as part of their sponsorship of this year's NYCC Artist's Alley: A set of five print versions of formerly digital-only comics that will be limited to 500 copies each. And, in what is arguably the best part, they're giving them away for free.

Humble Bundle And CBLDF Launch Pay-What-You Want Bundle Of Banned Comics

Bone by Jeff Smith

From October 27 to September 3, the American Library Association, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, and a dozen other organizations made up of creators, publishers, teachers and journalists will be celebrating Banned Books Week. Well, maybe "celebrating" is the wrong word for a 33 year-old campaign designed to raise awareness of censorship by championing books that were challenged or banned from libraries across the country, but there's at least one good reason to have a good time with it.

To mark the occasion, the folks over at Humble Bundle have launched a pay-what-you-want collection of banned and challenged comics, including Jeff Smith's Bone, Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neil's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Keiji Nakazawa's Barefoot Gen and more --- complete with reasons why they were challenged.

On The Cheap: Comixology’s ‘Astro City’ Sale Has Some Of The Best Comics Ever

Astro City by Busiek, Anderson and Ross

Kurt Busiek, Brent Anderson and Alex Ross's Astro City turns 20 years old this month, marking two decades of --- and I say this without even a hint of my usual exaggeration --- one the most innovative and consistently great comics in the history of the superhero genre. To celebrate that pretty auspicious occasion, DC and Comixology have launched a massive sale on the series that runs until next Monday, the 21st.

If you've never read the series, or even if you've just missed a few here and there and need to fill some holes in your run, then this is likely the best news you'll hear all week, but at the same time, it can be a little daunting. 20 years of comics can be a lot to get through, especially when it's all really good. So if you need some recommendations, I'm here to help.

Archie Is Finally Releasing That ‘Jughead’s Time Police’ Digital Collection You Wanted (And By You, I Mean Me) [Preview]


I think I'm pretty solidly on record as being someone who loves the weirder side of Archie Comics, and even now, when we've got an ongoing series about Riverdale facing the zombie apocalypse, I don't think they've ever done anything weirder than Jughead's Time Police. It is, of course, great, but the issues can be a little bit difficult to track down --- until now! This week installment of Archie's digital offerings is a collection of all six issues of Jughead's Time Police. It goes up Friday on Comixology, but you can check out a preview right now!
