BATMANOLOGIST GUIDE TO COMIXOLOGY’S MASSIVE 99-CENT BATMAN 75TH ANNIVERSARY SALE

By Chris Sims

Okay, so there’s good news and bad news. The good news is that ComiXology is having a massive sale on Batman comics, and has knocked a bunch of them down to 99¢ each, which means that you can grab some great stories on the cheap. The bad news? Since this whole thing is in honor of Batman’s 75th anniversary, they’ve put 750 comics on sale, plus a handful of graphic novel collections. All things considered, that’s a pretty good problem to have, but still, that can be pretty overwhelming.

Fortunately, we’re here to help. As the World’s Foremost Batmanologist, I’ve sifted through the sale to bring you safe bets for what you should be grabbing during the sale. Assuming you’ve got the obvious ones — like The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One and the recent runs by Morrison, Snyder, and Capullo — here’s what to grab next!
