Daredevil Digital Comics Sale

Amazon is having a Daredevil digital comics sale. There are other titles available, but the ones I’m interested in are Daredevil.

(Note: the guy above is not Daredevil, because Daredevil isn’t real. Good costume though.)

For some reason Daredevil lends itself to amazing story-telling. A blind lawyer who can kindasorta see and has ninja-like skills? Sure, why not? But seriously, these are literally some of the greatest comic books ever written/drawn.

Daredevil by Frank Miller

The Frank Miller/Klaus Janson comics should be required reading for everyone. For now, I’ll have to settle for sales such as this one and hope that causes more people to read the comics. The Brian Bendis/Alex Maleev books are also damn good. For me, the Miller stuff is better, in part because it blew my mind when I was a kid, but also because I think it’s just better. No disrespect to Mr. Bendis or Mr. Maleev, who are obviously insanely talented. It’s just… these comics… wow. Got me where I live when I was a lad, and reading them now, they still do.

There might be some other stuff available as well. The DD books (digital books, via Kindle) are half off. $9.99 is a freakin’ bargain for a collection of comic book epicness. Poke around and see if there’s anything you like. Comic books, especially great ones like these, are an excellent distraction from reality. You know what I mean.

Online shopping from a great selection at Marvel Featured Collections Store.

All the M*A*S*H for 60 Bucks

Amazon Deal that ends tonight, so move fast if you want it — get all the M*A*S*H for 60 bucks.

Technically the price is $59.99. But there might be tax which would make it more. So let’s say 60 bucks, for which you receive 34 DVDs. Not bad, right?

Just to make things interesting, here’s a personal M*A*S*H story. Because we used to watch whatever was on TV, I watched a fair amount of M*A*S*H, even when I was too young to fully appreciate it. This was extremely true when I saw an episode in which Klinger has some sort of nightmare. That’s all I remember — other than the fact that I was scared out of my mind. I’m fairly certain it gave me nightmares, and TV generally doesn’t do that.

Obviously M*A*S*H is one of the all-time great television shows, true classic tv, and the movie it’s based on is worth seeing as well. So go ahead and buy this uber-collection. But do it today because Amazon says it goes bye-bye tomorrow.

Marvel Buy One Get One Free Sale at Comixology

Oh snap. Big sale on Marvel comics. From now until Sunday, April 24th at 11:59 PM EST (West Coast readers take note), there is a Marvel Buy One Get One Free Sale at Comixology. Digital comics, folks. Such a deal!

Marvel Buy One Get One Free Sale

The sale includes not only individual issues but also collections, which is kind of awesome. In fact, it also includes Marvel MAX titles, such as Alias, the comic that introduced Jessica Jones.

Schmendrick that I am, I already bought all of the Alias collections after watching the Jessica Jones Netflix series. But if you haven’t done that, and you want to read the Marvel comics that inspired the TV show, you can do that now and save yourself some money.

Instructions should be on the Comixology page, but I’ve been told by a little bird (OK, by a PR person from Comixology) that all you need to do is “enter the code MARVEL at checkout on comixology.com.” Also: “This offer does not apply to Marvel bundles or pre-orders and can only be redeemed on comixology.com.” Get it? Got it? Good. Happy shopping.

The usual disclaimers — DaddyTips.com is not responsible for anything regarding your experience with this deal. We are simply repeating what we were told via email, and what it says on Comixology’s web site.

A brief word about digital comics — I’ve embraced them because I have no room for more stuff. I still buy comic books weekly, for myself and for my kids. And I still love reading physical comic books, both individual issues and trade paperbacks. But… I have no room. And the digital thing is so damn easy. Is there any resale value? Of course not. It’s a digital file. But if you’re willing to buy a movie, TV show, book, or other form of entertainment digitally (and you know you are, at least most of you) you should consider adding digital comics to your diet of media consumption. Also, there’s a sale. We like sales.

Happy reading. Avanti!

$100 iTunes Code For $80

Black Friday 2015 has come and gone but there are still deals to be found.

Like this one I just stumbled across on eBay — a $100 iTunes Code for $80.

$100 iTunes Code for $80

$100 iTunes Code for only $80 – Email Delivery in Gift Cards & Coupons, Digital Gifts | eBay

Yes, I’m suspicious as well. But the source is, according to the eBay page I’m looking at right now, PayPal Digital Gifts. eBay owns PayPal. So, you know, there’s that. So why would Apple let them sell $100 iTunes Gift Cards for $80, which is literally like getting free money? (Assuming you want to spend that money in the iTunes store.) I have no idea. Caveat buyor, as we say. But this appears to be legit.

One thing from the comments — you may not get the code right away. This comment amused me: “The description says delivered within minutes. I guess the definition of minutes is loose because technically a year is 525600 minutes…” (Cue Seasons Of Love from Rent.)

To be fair, the item description does say that it could take “up to 24 hours” for the code to show up in your email Inbox. BUT the intro text does say, “Delivered in minutes (Exceptions apply)”. As of this writing, they’ve sold 142 codes in the past hour. Hit the link below for the deal. And happy Thanksgiving!
