Comics Should Be Cheap (8/10/22)

Buying comics can be an expensive hobby. A lot of fans simply can’t afford everything they’re interested in, due to rising prices and the over-saturation of the market with superhero titles.

That’s why we’re here. Every week, the Multiversity staff is asked “What would you buy this week if you couldn’t go over $20?” and shares their reasons why, in order to help others who might have similar tastes make their own decisions in buying comics on a budget. Be sure to leave your own picks in the comments!


Kate’s Picks:

The Deadliest Bouquet #1 ($3.99): I am a sucker for any kind of family drama story. Maybe it makes me feel better about the drama my own family has sometimes. Hopefully the 1998 setting doesn’t make me feel too old, as it is a bit strange for my college years to now be the source of rose-colored nostalgia.

Hellboy Universe Essentials: Witchfinder ($14.99): As I continue exploring the intricate and complex world of Hellboy, these Essentials volumes provide the perfect primer.

Total: $18.98


Johnny’s Picks:

Love Everlasting #1 ($3.99): I’ll say this for Tom King – he has had some of the best collaborators in the business, and for this metafictional romance comic he’s joined by none other than Elsa Charretier. Charretier did some great work on the series of graphic novels “November,” and her inky, minimalist style reminds me of some of the greats – Toth, Cooke, Hernandez, just to name a few. Good company to be in!

The Jurassic League #4 ($3.99): This is a silly damned book about dinosaurs in superhero getups. Long live silly damned books about dinosaurs in superhero getups.

Total: $7.98


Christopher’s Pick:

A.X.E: Judgment Day #2 ($4.99): I’m such a big Kieron Gillen fan, that I’m making a go of keeping it up with this crossover event each month, instead of binge-reading it after it concludes. The first issue was solid, even though it was a largely talky set-up for events that take place in other series, but regardless, I’m looking forward to see what happens next.

Total: $4.99


Mark’s Pick:

Blacksad: They All Fall Down – Part One ($19.99): I’ve already bought this digitally, but I’m sure you can understand why I need a physical volume with Juanjo Guarnido’s gorgeous artwork. (Honestly, it’s incredible to me that “Les Indes Fourbes” hasn’t been translated to English yet―we need as much Guarnido art in the world as possible.) There are some panels in this book that have taken up permanent residence in my head. I pre-ordered this book the second it popped up.

Total: $19.99. In truth, this is one of those weeks where in reality I’m easily over $100. (I mean, c’mon, you seriously think I’d pass on the 20th Anniversary Edition of “The Amazing Screw-On Head”?)
