Your deliveries will arrive with a card that details the books in your box, will a bit more about each one.

Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life – Retails $11.99 – $7 on Amazon

The first book is just a classic – it’s Scott Pilgrim!

You’ll get a classic look at Scott and his battles in this 168-page book – it’s a fast read, and a fun one if you’ve only seen the movie.

More from Amazon:

Scott Pilgrim’s life is totally sweet. He’s 23 years old, he’s in a rock band, he’s “between jobs,” and he’s dating a cute high school girl. Nothing could possibly go wrong, unless a seriously mind-blowing, dangerously fashionable, rollerblading delivery girl named Ramona Flowers starts cruising through his dreams and sailing by him at parties. Will Scott’s awesome life get turned upside-down? Will he have to face Ramona’s seven evil ex-boyfriends in battle? The short answer is yes. The long answer is Scott Pilgrim, Volume 1: Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life.

Headlocked: A Single Step – Value $20

This comic is based on a character pushing to become a professional wrestler – written by a lifelong wrestling fan and drawn by an actual wrestler.

This was my least favorite of the bunch – but I’m not a wrestling fan – so it does add up. It’s definitely worth a read if you’re a wrestling and comic fan!

The Tick: Karma Tornado – Value $13.95 – $17 on Amazon

SO happy to see this one! The Tick!

The Tick was a favorite of my younger self- especially when the Fox animated show arrived, I just loved it! Now, with the Amazon TV show, it’s re-ignited my love for these characters – this was a must-read and favorite of the month for me.

More from Amazon:

This 128 page book presents the first five issues of Karma Tornado. There are not many first editions of this collection left. These Great Tick stories are based on original plot ideas from the Creator of the Tick Ben Edlund! Plus these stories are co-plotted and scripted by Chris (Jackson Publik from Cartoon Networks’ Venture Bros.)

Virgil Volume 1 – Retail $9.99 ($6 on Amazon)

The next volume is for mature readers – we couldn’t even find a good section to photo without nudity or cursing! So, beware if you’re buying this for a younger reader.

This one comes from one of my favorite publishers – Image Comics. It’s a great read, though – it’s worth your time if you’re into Image Comics.

More from Amazon:

Betrayed, beaten, and banished by his own, an outed cop fights his way across Jamaica to save his man and get revenge! Virgil thought he was safe on the police force, but his gun and his attitude can’t protect him from his own secret – he’s gay. For thirty years he’s had two lives. In the uniform he’s the toughest on the street. Out of uniform he’s a loving boyfriend. But when his own precinct turns on him, his worlds explodes. They put his name in the paper, raided his house, and took his lover. They left him bleeding in the ocean. They shouldn’t have left him alive.

Kaptara Volume 1 – Retail $9.98 ($7 on Amazon)

The last volume is also from Image Comics – Kaptara.

This one if FULL of strange and weird creatures – again, it’s an interesting read from Image.

More from Amazon:

Keith Kanga crash lands on KAPTARA, a world filled with danger and weird danger and dangerous weirdos! And if he can’t survive, then Earth, the place where YOU live, is doomed! Come check out this sci-fi comedy from Chip Zdarsky (SEX CRIMINALS) and Kagan McLeod (Infinite Kung-Fu). Collects KAPTARA #1-5.

Verdict: Scott Pilgrim, The Tick, and two new Image Comics volumes is just a HUGE win for me! This is one of my favorite deliveries yet!

  1. does your coupon still work? I wanted to try this out 🙂

  2. I really would like to sign up for the half off deal for $12.50 but when I start to check out with Paypal it shows that it will charge me $30 and not $12.50 so I don’t want to actually go through the checkout process since that $30 scared me and I have never signed up before. Any suggestions as to why that is?
