Odds are that you've heard some pretty good things about a whole host of recent comics from Boom Studios, but for whatever reason you might not have got around to checking them out just yet. Well the publisher just made it a whole lot easier to sample the best of its wares with a line-wide sale on Comixology offering 50% off all Boom titles until Monday.

As we enter the spookiest month of all, it's time once again for Comixology Unlimited to bring in a host of amazing new comics, and sadly say goodbye to a number that are leaving the service.
The biggest addition this month has to be the arrival of even more of Eric Powell's creator-owned masterpiece The Goon, but there are plenty of spooks to be found elsewhere with the likes of Warren Ellis and Ben Templesmith's Fell and David Lapham and Mike Huddleston's adaptation of The Strain.
“Our mission is to make everyone on the face of the planet a comic fan,” says Comixology CEO David Steinberger. Today, Comixology has revealed a new step in that plan with Comixology Originals, a line of digital comics in partnership with print publishers, available exclusively on Comixology and Kindle.
Chikara Pro Wrestling is wrestling for people that think they might not like wrestling. It’s essentially a fast-paced, high-action stunt show with plenty of drama, comedy and excitement, and it's essentially the closest thing you’ll get to seeing superheroes in real life. I love Chikara so much that I've just spent three days watching the huge King of Trios tournament alongside other ComicsAlliance staffers!.
If you love Chikara or the art of lucha libre in general, there’s a wealth of comics out there for you. Earlier this year, I recommended five comics for fans of WrestleMania, but this week I’ve chosen five comics with a decidedly lucha twist that are perfect for fans of Chikara Pro Wrestling. Love that? Try this!
Nothing makes a comic book look less professional than bad lettering, but if you have some doubts about how to do it the professional way, don't fret. Comixology and Comicraft are here to help with a new graphic that highlights some of the common dos and don'ts of the fine art of lettering!
As another month ends, Comixology is set to add another handful of titles to the Netflix-style Comixology Unlimited service, and while there's been good stuff in there since the beginning, September's offerings might be the all-around best bunch of comics put on there so far. There's the thrilling supernatural adventure in the pages of Hellboy and the BPRD: 1946, the year's most unexpected crossover in Archie Meets KISS, and even a stone cold classic in the form of Matt Wagner's Grendel: The Hunter Rose Omnibus.
Whenever Laika put out a new film, it's worth sitting up and paying and attention, and between films like Paranorman, Coraline and The Boxtrolls, the studio has proved itself one of the best places for nuanced and touching approaches to films aimed at children.
Laika's newest release, Kubo and the Two Strings, is based on classic Chinese stories and traditions, and comics is a medium that has provided opportunities for creators from around the world to tell their own cultures' stories and traditions. If you loved Kubo and the Two Strings, we've put together a list of five comics to check out next. Love that? Try this!

Jeff Lemire is a writer who can balance working on sensitive and thought provoking creator owned work such as Trillium and Descender with working on some of the biggest franchises in mainstream superhero comics. While at Marvel Comics he currently writes Extraordinary X-Men and Moon Knight, he had a lengthy stint at DC Comics recently, and Comixology has assembled those runs into a neat little sale.
