Every year, Top Shelf holds this annual sale where you can get some great independent comics and graphic novels. We all, collectively, do a lot of complaining about the shenanigans of corporate comics, but there's no better way to remind yourself of why you love this medium then by picking up a quality indy book, free of all the nonsense that comes with global cross-branding marketing strategies. So, without any further snark from us, let's just run the press release:
Welcome to the 2013 Top Shelf Massive $3 Graphic Novel Sale, where you can pick up the year's greatest graphic novels at incredibly low prices by ordering direct from Top Shelf!
For the next two weeks — through Friday, September 27th — Top Shelf is having our annual $3 web sale. When you visit our site, you'll find 150+ critically acclaimed graphic novels and comics on sale — with over 100 titles marked down to just $3 & $1!
Each year Top Shelf uses this sale to help spread the word about our incredible new releases, and raise funds to “kick start” a full rollout for next year. With your help, we'll keep publishing some of the most beloved graphic novels on earth — from award-winning masters and exciting new talents (and yes, even Members of Congress!). Now's your chance to support a great independent publisher and expand your graphic novel collection at the same time.
