DC Comics and ComiXology are apparently starting a Black Friday tradition with Blackest Friday.
Blackest Friday is the publishing company’s 99 cent sale that features the comic books from the 2009-2010 crossover event comic. All of the tie-ins and crossovers from R.E.B.E.L.S. to the special mini-series comics like Blackest Night: Titans are included in this mega-sale. In fact, this sale moves beyond the hit series into the bi-weekly follow up comic Brightest Day, however the Brightest Day tie-ins are not included.
Brightest Day follows up directly after Blackest Night, so it’s awesome that this 104 issue sale includes the entire Green Lantern driven story.
And while it’s certainly not my favorite event comic, the majority of these comics are a steal for only 99 cents. There’s good and bad, so check through the sale here and see what tickles your fancy.
But if you just want to read the main story, read the Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps, Blackest Night and Brightest Day books. That’ll save you a lot of money, but if you’re wanting to try something new, a lot of the tie-ins were great. So, pick whatever looks like something you’d enjoy. Personally, I liked Doom Patrol, Outsiders, Superman/Batman, The Question and Catwoman.
Like I said, it’s not my favorite, but it’s a great deal. Sale ends on November 27, 2011 at 11pm EST in North America.
