If there's one thing you've probably gotten tired of reading about at ComicsAlliance, aside from endless essays that could best be summed up as "Batman is pretty cool," it's probably about how Yusuke Murata and ONE's One Punch Man might just be the single best superhero comic coming out right now. We've given it our prestigious awards, we've reviewed it extensively, and every chance I get, I talk about how its unique combination of hard-hitting action and hilarious comedy that manages to tweak a single joke over and over without ever getting old makes it a must read.

And now, if you still haven't picked it up, there aren't a whole lot excuses left. Right now, Viz is offering up a digital bundle of the first five volumes --- over a thousand pages of one of the best comics on the stands --- for a thin twenty bucks.




If you've missed me talking about it before, the story is focused on Saitama, a young man who became a superhero for fun and ended up becoming so strong that he can defeat any enemy with a single punch --- which is pretty handy since he lives in a version of Japan that's constantly under attack from supervillains, kaiju, and unstoppable space monsters.

What's great about the bundle, though, is that it takes you through the much larger story that ONE and Murata are building, from the initial joke about Saitama's effortless defeat of his enemies and the gags about Genos, the astonishingly powerful cyborg that becomes Saitama's apprentice, all the way through the truly genius world-building that slowly reveals the larger superhero business of a world under constant threat.

If all our talk isn't enough to convince you, Viz has the first three chapters up on the site for free as a preview. If you're finally ready to take the plunge, however, then getting the first five volumes for four bucks each is a pretty phenomenal deal.
