This is the year of Batwoman and not only is she kicking butt twice-monthly in Detective Comics, tomorrow sees the release of Marguerite Bennett, James Tynion IV, Steve Epting and Jeremy Cox's Batwoman #1. If you need to catch up on why Kate Kane is one of the best new --- or reimagined if you want to be pedantic --- characters of the past ten years, Comixology has young covered with a massive sale featuring a tonne of Batwoman comics.
On The Cheap
The Humble Bundle deals on comics are usually a pretty good way to catch up with older stories that you may have missed out on, but every now and then, there's one that features a brand new title to love --- and right now, the IDW Creator Showcase bundle is offering up a pretty good mix of both.
Not only is it full of old favorites like Locke & Key and 30 Days of Night, it also features the debut issue of Andy Suriano and Matt Chapman's Cosmic Scoundrels --- and friends, that is a comic book that hit shelves last week that can be yours (along with a ton of other great titles) for as little as a buck.
This week, Comixology has launched a Batgirl sale, celebrating 50 years since Barbara Gordon first donned the cape and cowl in 1967's Detective Comics #359. If you're a fan of Babs, there's plenty there to choose from --- including Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart, and Babs Tarr's critically acclaimed "Batgirl of Burnside" relaunch, the post-Rebirth world-traveling adventures, and even some underrated deep-cut classics like Batgirl Adventures and DC First in there, too.
But Barbara Gordon isn't the only character to ever take the identity of Batgirl, and if you're up for diving into the hazy years of the early 2000s, there's a bunch of great stories in there about the second Batgirl, Cassandra Cain.
Today sees the release of Steve Orlando and Ivan Reis' Justice League of America Rebirth #1, which features a number of high-profile characters who you might not necessarily associate with the team coming together under Batman's command. To celebrate the new Justice League, DC and Comixology have a sale on a number of related books, including some of the best hidden gems of the past ten years.
Tank Girl, the anarchic punk protagonist created by Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett, has undergone a renewal in recent years thanks to new comics from Titan with Martin once again at the helm of her adventures. To celebrate over twenty years of the character, Titan is offering a great big stack of digital Tank Girl comics through Humble Bundle, including classic stories and the more modern reinventions.
Tabletop roleplaying is alive and well, and possibly more popular than its ever been and for over eight years Pathfinder has provided some of the most exciting, daring and thrilling adventure paths and story routes in recent memory. If you're a huge RPG nut or are seeking an easy way into the hobby, the new Humble Bundle has a veritable treasure trove of sourcebooks, adventure paths and guides to dig into, as well as a whole host of amazing Pathfinder comics.
Ho ho ho, friends! It's the end of the year, and that means that pretty much everyone is running a sale on Comixology right now --- which means that there's actually so much in there that it's impossible to narrow it down to just one.
So once you've put the partridge in its pear tree and shipped it off to your true love, why not grab a cup of wassail and treat yourself --- or a friend in need of a last-minute gift --- to a full twelve picks for comics to pick up for as much as 60% off this Christmas?
This week, Comixology has launched a sale on DC's digital-first line, which means that for half of their usual cover price, you can catch up on rip-roaring retro adventure in books like Bombshells, Wonder Woman '77, and Batman '66, get continuity-free adventures in Adventures of Superman, Sensation Comics, and Legends of the Dark Knight, and --- perhaps most importantly --- finally get the answer to the question of whether Batman could defeat a pro wrestler.
