Indie comics house Top Shelf is bringing back its massive sale. For the next two weeks until September 26, more than 180 Top Shelf print and digital titles—from Alan Moore’s From Hell to John Lewis’ March Book One—will be offered for as much as 50% off and many more will be priced at $10 or less.
Top Shelf is also offering digital “add ons” or a bundling program that gives consumers who buy a physical graphic novel the bonus option of downloading the DRM-Free digital edition for a few dollars more. Top Shelf publisher Chris Staros told PW the sale is an effort to “ to help spread the word about our incredible recent releases, and raise funds to “kick start” a full rollout for next year.”
More than 125 Top Shelf titles will be priced at $3 or $1. Titles available to consumers at a 50% discount are such titles as March Book One by John Lewis, Alan Moore’s Lost Girls and Craig Thompson’s Blankets and Jeff Lemire’s award-winning Essex County graphic novel. For $3, fans can get copies of Alan Moore’s acclaimed League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series, Andy Runton’s Owly series for kids and many more.
Staros also welcomed retailers—he said that “certain minimuns apply” —to take advantage of the sale.
