This is pretty much inspired by the PS+/PSN Store thread over in the video games forum. Figure it be easier/more productive to have posts about sales posted in a single thread instead of mixed in with discussion of news and commentary. The biggest one at the moment seems to be the 750 issue Batman Sale but there's an also smaller Essential Batman Collections Sale which at $2.99 for each collection would be cheaper than buying the issues(if they're available) in the single issue sale. Figure I'll have no excuse not to have read The Long Halloween now. Image is having a SDCC Sale which I don't really find too notable since all of it seems to go on sale pretty frequently. There's a pretty big Viz manga sale which I believe is simply everything is $2 off the normal prices. Not really sure how interested any of the parties here would be of that. And lastly from Comixology there's a Cartoon Network Sale with issues from the IDW releases series. The Image sale seems to run till 11 PM EST tonight and the Batman Sale is to the 29th. Not sure about the rest. Marvel is offering a month of Marvel Unlimited for 99 cents in honor of SDCC with code: SDCC14. And lastly DC is offering a digital copy of Batman: Eternal #1 for free on Amazon with code BATMAN75. Slickdeals link with details.
Okay this is perhaps random as fuck, but I was blasting music while writing and the rotation included vids of Queen, Bowie, The Cramps, Stones, Aerosmith and AC/DC (which is pretty standard for me). The wifeperson commented on my tendency to play these same six bands over and over and I responded with "You have perhaps the six greatest frontmen in rock, what's not to like?" Her response was, "One of those guys looks like someone you would hang out with at the Knarr Tavern, the rest of them look like rockstars." Of course, she meant Brian Johnson, and I have to agree, Brian even in his younger days looked like the guy on the next barstool that you would watch a game of football (soccer) with while having a few pints of Guinness. Onstage he was magical, but he looked like the guy next door that helped you build a workshed, not like the voice of arguably the greatest hardrock band ever. So who ya got as the person whose looks most belied what they were as a true god/goddess of rock n' roll?
