On The Cheap: Image’s Black Friday Sale Has ‘Kaptara,’ ‘No Mercy’ And More For 50% Off

Kaptara, Chip Zdarsky and Kagan McLeod

Today is Black Friday across America, where the world of retail becomes a living nightmare not unlike the Hunger Games. If, however, you're holed up in a bunker waiting for things to blow over, you can still get in on some pretty great deals. Today at Comixology, Image has launched a gigantic 50% off sale with a ton of great single issues and collections that you can pick up now to read while you stand in line trying to buy a six-dollar BluRay player or make conversation with your relatives.

It should be noted that it's not on everything --- there are a couple of notable absences, including Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting's Velvet, for instance --- but there's more than enough there to get going, and as always, we've got some recommendations!

Thumbnail: How ‘No Mercy’ Gets the High School Experience Right

fi

I took six AP classes over the course of my high school career. I was president of the Readers’ Club. I won awards for poetry and public speaking. But because I was not uniformly incredible at everything I attempted, and because I did not go to what my school considered an impressive college, I was regarded as a “problem student.” This was not atypical.

Academic competition defined those four years, for me and for all 3,000 of my classmates. Yet for all the world’s media devoted to Teens Having Feelings, I rarely see this experience reflected. Jocks, nerds, burnouts, hotties — whatever. We’re all very familiar with tales of cafeteria warfare and bravery in the face of cystic acne. But where are the movies devoted to GPA mania? Clubs created for the sole purpose of claiming presidency on one’s transcript? The pitying looks a mere 4 on an AP exam elicits, rather than the vaunted 5? Nowhere, really, unless something Glee-ish decides to do a Very Special Episode on Adderall abuse.

Until Alex de Campi, Carla Speed McNeil, and Jenn Manley Lee’s No Mercy.

Writer Alex de Campi and artist Carla Speed McNeil have teamed up to create the Image book No Mercy, about a group of teenagers from the U.S. who go to Central America on a school trip and things go horribly, horribly wrong.

The story is brutal and unforgiving, but also at times touching and funny. With lots of psychological terror, a diverse cast, and a pair of great creators at the wheel, the book sounds right up our alley, so we spoke with de Campi and McNeil to find out what readers can expect from No Mercy.
