I'm also going to skip the Sin City "omnibus" as its too darn expensive and kills my budget. So I went from being potentially way over budget (if either of those 2 books was 50% off, I would have bought them budget or no budget) to being under my budget, which gave me room to pick up Vol. 2 of Saga. I was really hesitant to pick up Saga. I didn't believe it could be as good as some people were saying, and I was sorta buying into the "backlash" argument. Turns out I really, really enjoyed the first volume and very much looking forward to seeing how this story unfolds. Is it a bit hipsterish/too clever in its dialogue? Maybe. But its very well done so that doesn't bother me (and I like this type of dialog when it's done well--I love Fraction's Hawkeye and Ryan North's Dinosaur Comics, for example). I highly recommend it if any of y'all were on the fence...

The bundles are the new to get around it. Which isn't that bad really. You get a heck of a lot more items at 50% off then normal. The bad part is, you may get a few books extra you didn't want in the first place. But I'll try to trade those in for credit later on.
I've never tried those bundles. Usually I'm interested in 2 or 3 books tops, I don't know what would I do with all that extra stuff...
