Mind-boggling sale on digital comics at Amazon!

Credit Sesame

Okay, I know this is sort of strange thing for me to post at Get Rich Slowly — although it’s not really that strange if you’ve been reading me for any length of time — but this afternoon, I want to share a mind-boggling deal on digital comics at Amazon.

I’ve been reading comic books all of my life. Over the course of 40 years, I built a masssive (and valuable) collection. Then, about five years ago, I sold most of my comics. I only kept the non-valuable stuff that had nostalgic value. (My complete run of Micronauts, for example. I love Micronauts.)

That said, I’ve continued to read comics on my Kindle. They’re cheaper than physical comic books and they carry less mental baggage.

Generally speaking, a collection of digital comics runs about $8 to $12 for a book that contains maybe ten individual comic books. That’s not a bad deal, but it’s not such a good deal that I can spend indiscriminately.

Right now, however, Amazon is having some crazy sale that I cannot fathom. A few hundred Marvel comic compilations — there doesn’t seem to be a rhyme or reason as to the selection — are on sale for ninety-nine cents each.

My fellow nerds in the comic book forums cannot believe this deal either:

Comic Book Deals!

I’m sorry, but this is like a once in a lifetime deal. I feel like I would be a bad blogger if I did not share this news so that my fellow nerds could take advantage. I have zero clue how long the deal will last. I only know that it’s been around since Monday. In the past 48 hours, I’ve spent $72 on comic compilations, but that $72 has netted me 73 books (or about 730 individual comics).

Here are some examples of the stuff that’s on sale:

There are many more titles available with this ninety-nine cent sale, but I’ve reached the end of my patience (two hours) typing these out. Feel free to browse.

If you want to take advantage of this sale, I suggest you do what I did: After you follow a link to something you like, root around the suggested items to find other ninety-nine cent gems.

As soon as I hear that this deal has gone away, I’ll pull this post. Non-nerd readers, I apologize for taking up your valuable time. Fellow nerds, rejoice!
