Trouble with Comics

Top Shelf’s Massive $3 Sale is On!

I may be crazy, but it seems to me that there are more absolute BARGAINS this year than in any of the previous Top Shelf $3 Sales. Click over to Top Shelf’s site and order as much as you want — this is the one time of year your budget won’t mind. 

Seriously, here are a few sale prices that strike me as absolutely bonkers; as in, you would have to be nuts not to buy these great comics and graphic novels at these prices:

* ALL of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century, each volume is five bucks, so the whole awesome story for 15 dollars.

* Alan Moore’s Unearthing softcover — normally $29.95, just $3.00. That’s 90% off for Moore’s latest work!

* The Surrogates Owners Manual is $10.00. This was originally published at $75.00 if I recall correctly, and provides hours of intense science-fiction entertainment (and also inspired a movie).

* Eddie Campbell’s excellent The Playwright is just a buck!

There are many, many more prices, so low it’s nuts. Buy some for friends, get some great reading for yourself. Top Shelf is an advertiser on this site (and I’m grateful for that!), but I’m telling you about this sale because it’s your one chance to sample some of the greatest graphic novels of the past 15 years or so without having to worry about how you’ll make the rent or pay for groceries. Click on over, get yourself some awesome graphic novels, and sleep well knowing you’re helping one of the best publishers in the industry keep doing what they do so well. And sure, if you like, tell ‘em Trouble With Comics sent you.

Top Shelf’s Massive $3 Sale!

Chris Staros of Top Shelf Productions has told me that the company is launching a massive $3.00 sale starting tomorrow. I’m jumping the gun to let you know early, because Top Shelf is one of my favourite publishers, and I think you’ll find a lot of great books at bargain prices. Note that Top Shelf is also an advertiser on this site, but I’d be telling you about this sale even if they weren’t, because they’re one of a handful of comics publishers I respect and believe in.

Here are the details on Top Shelf’s Massive $3.00 Sale!

For the next two weeks — through Friday September 23th — Top Shelf is having a giant $3 web sale. When you visit the site, you’ll find 175 graphic novels and comics on sale — with over 100 titles marked down to just $3 & $1! To help us continue doing what we do, please participate in this sale. With the economy as it’s been, it’s getting harder and harder to keep publishing such quality material. But if enough people participate, we’ll be able to finish paying for this year’s amazing releases, and “kick start” a full rollout for next year.

Thanks in advance for your support (as the comics community IS the best community)!
