Ask us about our bundle deals

Two of our price guides

When we go to expos and comic cons (and we’re doing about 20 of those this year) we have a little sign on the table with our prices and a notice that says “ask us about our bundle deals”.

The reason for this is fairly simple: comics are sequential and if you want to pick up a whole story arc at once we want to encourage that… so to make it easier for you we offer discounts based on how many story arcs you pick up at once.

That hasn’t really been possible with our online store until now and we felt that was a little unfair so we’ve created a few pre-selected bundles specifically for the website.

We have four bundle deals so far:

What’s in each bundle?

With each of them, we’ve tried to focus on value for money. The badges are an easy one – they sell for £4 per set of 3 but the bundle is only £6 for six badges. With the 7 Shades miniseries you can have the whole 4 issue story in ebook and physical formats for £17 – it would cost you £24 if you wanted to buy those individually. Our Dexter’s Half Dozen bundle gets you 296 pages of printed comics and the same in digital copies for just £30 compared to the £68 that would cost when bought individually. And with our Dolphin Squad bundle deal you’re getting three graphic novels, a poster, six badges and a whole host of downloadable goodies for just £30! Buying the three graphic novels on their own would be more than that.

We’ve collected things this way because that’s what people usually ask for when they see us at conventions – but if you have other ideas on bundle deals that you’d like to see, contact us and let us know!

7 Shades – A Brand New Comic From David Clifford and Peter Rogers

Last Saturday we attended the Cardiff Independent Comics Expo and had the pleasure of being joined by the creative team behind 7 Shades and Dexter’s Half Dozen.

To the left is Peter Rogers, author of the Eagle-nominated anthology series Eleventh Hour as well as many other things. In the middle is David Clifford, artist behind both Dexter’s Half Dozen and 7 Shades – and to the right is Jamie Lambert, writer for Dexter’s Half Dozen.

When we were approached with the concept for 7 Shades we were immediately intrigued. It was described to us as a supernatural western, and having already seen the art for Dexter’s Half Dozen we were sure that David could do the theme justice. And he has.

Each page is fully painted art and looks gorgeous… as you can see here:

The story revolves around events occurring in the mysterious town of 7 Shades. The man you see being rudely awakened in the page above is our protagonist, Sammael Jehosephat Hicks, and he – with the rest of his family are on a quest to save his sister. Sammael is a pretty unreliable individual and to put your faith in him for something crucial is probably a bad idea. To say much more would spoil a story that ought to be read – and you can start that journey here! Below are the covers for issue 1 and 2. The series will be released in arcs and the concluding part of this arc will be released September 2018.

 

One of the things that Peter and David are keen to do is to have a Q&A page in each issue starting from issue 3. If you’ve got a question you’d like them to answer, you can email us or contact them through their own website.
