Mind if I shake things up a little today? I realize comic books have very little to do with gadgets, gear, or technology in general, but this is such a unique and attractive deal, I couldn't pass it up.
Today only, Graveyard Mall is offering 50 assorted comics for $9.99 (plus around $6 for shipping). The selection includes titles from Dark Horse, DC, Epic Comics, Marvel, and more--but "most will be Marvel," according to the order page.
If memory serves, these days the average comic book sells for around $3.99. Needless to say, a stack of 50 for 10 bucks is pretty spectacular.
My little cheapskates, especially my 7-year-old son, will be in pulp heaven when this box arrives. I'm sure not all the titles will be Spider-Man and Star Wars, but I think half the fun lies in not knowing what we'll get.
I don't know exactly what time this deal expires (it's simply listed as the "daily deal"), nor if it might sell out. I do think comic fans will probably jump on it quick, so I wouldn't wait to pull the trigger.
Bonus deal: If you absolutely positively need your daily gadget fix, I won't leave you hanging. CellularFactory has an iPhone 3G/3GS dock/charger for $4.99, plus free shipping with coupon code 3Q6GC9. Apple charges $29 for more or less the same thing. I'm in.
