Superhero Hype’s Best Amazon Deals For August 9, 2019
A new week brings new deals for those eager to close out the summer with some unbridled fun. And what better way to do so than gathering friends around the coffee table with some games. We’ve got a wide selection of tabletop revelries that will make those last days a blast, along with some other outstanding items. Here are Superhero Hype’s best Amazon deals for August 9, 2019.
Preacher kicked off its final season with a two-hour season premiere last week, promising to complete Jesse’s odyssey to find God. The show’s source material remains one of Garth Ennis’ most memorable works. It showcases imaginative characters and use of violence and irreverence in trademark Ennis fashion. And fans that haven’t read the book now have a discounted route to jump in with this hardcover collection of the first 26 issues. Pick it up at nearly 50% off.
Batman v Superman lit the world on fire in the worst way possible back in 2016. The film failed critically for multiple reasons, but its promised clash between DC’s most recognizable heroes was a highlight. This twist on a classic places that battle in your hands, pitting the Man of Steel against the Dark Knight in a flurried battle of fists. Fans can pick up the game at a 42% discount.
Rick & Morty is no stranger to the wise world of merchandising. This deck-building game isn’t even the only one carrying the Adult Swim hit’s branding. But that actually works in its favor. This set can be combined with other Rick & Morty deck builders, creating a giant array of multiplayer madness. Or just pick this one up for 46% off. It plays just fine by itself.
Perhaps you want to mix some color into your “thinking man’s” game? Well, this skillfully decorated chess set pitting Batman against The Joker is right up your alley. Match the two nemeses against one another in a battle of strategy and wits, complete with their respective queens, Batgirl and Harley Quinn. The detailed pieces are impressive separate from the game, worthy of any comics fan’s shelf space. Pick it up at a 63% discount.
At this point, there isn’t a soul on the planet unfamiliar with Funko! Pop figures. OK, that may be hyperbolic, but the glut of franchises represented within its library means there is at least one that appeals to even the most cynical fan. Captain Marvel’s Goose is easily one of those. The only drawback here is that buyers have a one-in-six chance of receiving the best version of Goose (the one with the Tesseract) when you make your purchase. The blind box element is frustrating, but the chance to have this sweet little Cheeto-coat beauty on your shelf in its tentacled glory is somewhat worth it. Especially at one-third off list price.
