As posted by Rich Johnston at his Bleeding Cool website, Amazon is having a *HUGE* hardcover/trade paperback sale. Seriously. Marvel Omnibuses (Omnibusi?) that typically cost upwards of $100 are going for $14.99 and even lower in some instances (Hello Uncanny X-Men Omnibus #1 for $8.24!!!)

Of course, use the affilliate link here to help out the board and get all you can or can reasonably afford!!

It's over now, the list prices have gone back up.

Good thing I got my order in yesterday. Kinda bummed I did it before they dropped from 15 to 8.24

http://www.bleedingcool.com/ for the whole story.
Apparently it was a mistake, and they are trying to fix some of it.
People who ordered huge might get cancellation emails, while others got lucky and still get their orders.

I knew I should have ordered a lot more.

Fun to see the top 100 was dominated by graphic novels and such ;)

I had a feeling it was a mistake... but it will be interesting to see if they do some graphic novel targeted sales etc. in the future because of the response.

People who got their orders cancelled are receiving $25 gift cards.

Pretty disappointing all around, it seems.

Eh, a $25 gift card for free would be good enough for me. Or did you expect them to order tons of extra merchandise that they would sell at an extreme loss just because of a pricing error? :-P

Just to be annoying...

So it's bad to lift these comics off the internet ($4->$0), but it is/was okay to get these huge omnibuses for far less than they were intended to be sold ($100->$15)?

Well, I don't have any scripts, so maybe just the ones that I read then... DARK HORSE COMICS B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth Exorcism #1 (Of 2) - Because I'll read anything that says BPRD, apparently Star Wars Blood Ties Boba Fett Is Dead #3 (Of 4)
