#13508134 Marvel's Black Widow: Red Vengeance Prize Pack Giveaway

Posted by samaside on 03 November 2016 - 12:18 AM

The blog I run is hosting a giveaway in conjunction with Marvel Press to promote the release of Margaret Stohl's new book, Black Widow: Red Vengeance. It's the sequel to Black Widow: Forever Red which is a YA novel focusing on the history of Natasha Romanoff and introducing a new character, Ava Orlova aka Red Widow. I've read the first book and it's not too bad. It takes place in this kind of a weird mix of the MCU and the comic book. Red Widow is kind of a Mary Sue-ish character at times but the first book was still very entertaining and my understanding is that the second book is even better (at least according to GoodReads so far).


Included in the prize pack:

  • Black Widow: Forever Read (Book #1)
  • Black Widow: Red Vengeance (Book #2)
  • A drawstring bag
  • An awesome Black Widow enamel pin

I'm seriously jealous of whoever wins the pin.


If you've got a YA fan in your life, this would be an awesome Christmas gift if you win. Perfect for teens, girlfriends, friends, etc. 


We've had a few CAG winners in previous giveaways now and we're a smaller blog so you've got a good shot at winning!


The giveaway ends November 6th!

is there another The Little Mermaid that they have to add 1989?

There's a live action version coming out next year if I remember correctly.

#13437270 The Last Days of the Hastings / GoHastings Universe - Check the latest posts...

Posted by samaside on 20 August 2016 - 02:11 PM

Everything is now 30-50% off. I think it was 30% off new XB1/PS4 games but they're all horrendously marked up so even with the discount it's not worth it. Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is still full price new and I think $49.99 used or something. I'm not sure what the used games discount was. I just want for comics and to check the board games discount (30% and also not worth it due to the mark ups though people are buying them up regardless).

#13413121 SDCC Book Giveaways - End This Week!

Posted by samaside on 26 July 2016 - 01:20 AM

So the blog I run started two book giveaways last week in conjunction with their respective publishers to promote the books during SDCC. I had really shitty Wi-Fi service in San Diego so I didn't get a chance to promote the giveaways as much as I'd have liked. But I wanted to make sure you guys got a shot at them!


They might not be everyone's cup of tea but if you would like them or know someone who would you should definitely enter. The odds are VERY GOOD that you'll win since we're still a small blog - and they're even better because we've got THREE copies of each to giveaway.

#13375261 Best Buy $10 Reward Certificates Pre-order Promo. (2016)

Posted by samaside on 21 June 2016 - 01:08 AM

What's the crystal ball say on Lego Star Wars falling in price considerably? Within 45 days of release. $39.99?

Considering basically every other game I've bought in the past 6 mo. has fallen to under $40 after GCU within about a month from release I'd say there is a pretty good chance.

Heads up: sync your Amazon and/or Microsoft accounts to DMA and get Monsters Inc. for free! Log in to the main site and it should show up as a featured story.

#12848890 Amazon Has a Bunch of Image Comics TPBs for Around $5 or Even Less

Posted by samaside on 05 August 2015 - 03:06 AM

Just in general? Probably Saga, Black Science, and either Outcast or Southern Bastards.


Saga and Black Science will always get recommendations from me because they are great science fiction comics. Outcast is one I'm recommending a lot lately because it's by Robert Kirkman who also does the Walking Dead and Cinemax is making a series based on it's so it's worth reading if just to prepare for that. And Southern Bastards is really just a great, gritty, more reality based series that sort of stands apart from any of the others I could recommend. But it's not for everyone.

#12848821 Amazon Has a Bunch of Image Comics TPBs for Around $5 or Even Less

Posted by samaside on 05 August 2015 - 02:24 AM

Outcast Vol. 1 $4.77

Low Vol. 1 $4.77

Black Science Vol. 1 $4.77

ODY-C $4.77

The Fade Out $4.77

Wayward Vol. 1 $4.94

The Autumnlands Vol. 1 $5.18

Southern Bastards Vol. 1 $5.60

Southern Bastards Vol. 2 $5.60

East of West Vol. 1 $5.76

Saga Vol. 1 $5.76

Wytches Vol. 1 $6.09

Rat Queen Vol. 1 $6.14

Lazarus Vol. 1 $6.40

Jupiter's Legacy Vol. 1 $6.50

Sex Criminals Vol. 1 $6.55

The Fuse Vol. 1 $6.68

The Wicked + The Divine Vol. 1 $6.70

Hinterkind Vol. 1 $6.72


These books usually retail at $9.99 or higher so you're getting a lot of them for around 40-50% off. These prices fluctuate. Some of them go back to the usual Amazon discounted price of around $7ish but generally come back down after a while. There are some other books, too, like Birthright Vol. 1 and Copperhead Vol. 1 and a few others that come down around $5 that currently aren't that cheap. If you scroll through the 'customers also bought' recommendations you'll see a lot of those books.


I have read or at least own most of these books so if you need any recommendations or want to know a bit more about them let me know!

I hope they put some of the new Disney film Funko POP! figures up. I grabbed Baymax and Hiro (not sure I want to get Fred since I don't think I'll get the rest of the Big Hero 6 set) but it'd be nice for them to put up the new Robin Hood or Jungle Book ones.

Has anyone read Rat Queens? I'm thinking about picking up Vol. 1 this week (or next, whenever it comes out in Canada).

I'm reading a digital ARC right now. Not really that into it. It's not bad but it's nothing special so far.
