The holiday season may be almost over, but if you're still in the mood to shop, there are more than a few good bargains out there for you or the comic book reader in your life. Image Comics has its digital sale going, and not to be outdone, DC Comics is making all of the titles on its 25 Essential Graphic Novels list available digitally for just $5.99.

The publisher recently released its updated 25 Essential Graphic Novels list, which includes obvious choices (Watchmen, Batman: Year One) as well as a few more recent books (Superman Earth One, Blackest Night), and the first volumes of a some notable Vertigo titles (Sandman, Swamp Thing, Y: The Last Man). It's a book store friendly list of titles that, for the most part, you can hand to a new reader without fear of them being completely lost in continuity madness. At least, that's the idea. It's also a nice opportunity to finally read that comic you've been meaning to get to for about a decade but have yet to read. At $5.99, this is just about the best deal you're ever going to get.

The sale runs now through January 2, and you can check out the complete list, as well as purchase titles, at DC Comics' website.
