Superhero Hype’s Best Amazon Deals For October 8, 2019
October always brings a spooky mood with its arrival, but there’s nothing to fear when it comes to our collection of Amazon deals. Well, other than some delightfully horror-filled books that will quickly put you in a Halloween mood. But the macabre isn’t the only thing on the menu this go around. Plenty of franchises are being re-imagined, making now a great time to devour time-tested panels all over again. Here are Superhero Hype’s best Amazon deals for October 8, 2019.
Todd Phillips’ Joker film can’t seem to stay out of the news cycle this week. It’s hard to deny the iconic status of Batman’s nemesis. And this hardcover celebrates the first 75 years of Gotham’s most sinister force with classic tales from seven different decades. Relive the Clown Prince of Crime’s most memorable moments at a 26% discount.
It can’t be an October list without a dash of horror, and American Vampire delivers a one-two punch of exactly what you’d want in one. Co-authored by Scott Snyder and horror legend Stephen King, this book tells two distinctly different stories with fresh interpretations of the classic bloodsucking monster. Take in Pearl’s path of vengeance and the Old West tale of Skinner Sweet for 31% off in paperback.
Just invoking the name Watchmen is enough to bring comic fans to a froth. The most celebrated comic book in the history of the medium continues to breathe over 30 years after its original publication. With HBO’s continuation of the book debuting later this month, there’s no better time to revisit Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ classic, even though I’m sure nearly everyone reading this has already poured through the book multiple times. That’s why we’re featuring this beautifully crafted special edition hardcover. Perfect for all collectors, bring home this work of art at a 53% price cut.
Attaching the name Brian K. Vaughan to a book imbues it with a certain pedigree right off the bat. The man who crafted Y: The Last Man, Saga, and Paper Girls rarely has a misstep, crafting sprawling stories with enriching characters and engrossing worlds. And those talents are on display once again in his award-winning digital comic The Private Eye. Set in a world where privacy is so valued that everyone publicly wears a mask, Vaughan builds a sci-fi noir thriller tailored to the post-internet age. The series makes the jump to hardcover at a 30% discount.
Let’s dip our toe back into the spooky pool again with Image Comics’ frightening yet intriguing book, Gideon Falls. From Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino, the duo behind Old Man Logan, comes a tale of conspiracy theories, religious disillusion, as well as an ominous building whose appearance brings death known as the Black Barn. This comic also delivers plenty of scares alongside a narrative that demands attention at nearly 40% off.
