“Wake the beast”: 40% off Secret Warriors!

Leave a comment

You can get the Secret Warriors for just £45, a 40% saving off its £75 RRP.

The 904-page omnibus is due for release in July 2012, and collects Mighty Avengers #13 and 18; Secret Warriors #1-28; Dark Reign: The List – Secret Warriors; Siege: Secret Warriors; and material from Dark Reign: New Nation.

You can save £30 if you get to forbiddenplanet.co.uk before Wednesday 15th February.

The book is written by Brian Michael Bendis and Jonathan Hickman, with art by Alex Maleev, Stefano Caselli, Alessandro Vitti, Mirko Colak, Ed McGuinness, Gianluca Gugliotta and David Marquez. The cover is provided by Jim Cheung.

Daisy Johnson: Quake.

While forbiddenplanet.com doesn’t even have it listed, Amazon.co.uk has it for a pre-order price of £47.47.

I expect the omnibus to go up to £50.25 on fp.co.uk once the offer ends, so it’s worth pre-ordering now – or getting it from Amazon if you miss the discount!

Secret Warriors available for pre-order!

Leave a comment

Forbidden Planet.co.uk has just made the Secret Warriors omnibus available for pre-order.

Though the book has an RRP of £75, you can buy it from fp.co.uk for just £49.01.

Amazon.co.uk also has the 904-page HC for £49.01. Which is pretty wierd.

My advice would be to wait maybe just for a week, as fp.co.uk normally offer these £75 books with a 40% discount for two weeks only – bringing it down to £45 – as part of their ‘STOP THE PRESS!’ offer. I reckon next week’s graphic novel newsletter wil include the deal, as the latest one was for The Incredible Hulk: Past Perfect – which looks really cool!

Here’s the synopsis for the Secret Warriors omnibus:

Former S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury and his newly minted team of Secret Warriors uncover a conspiracy that reaches from the Oval Office to Japan — and even beyond death. When a shadow war breaks out between Leviathan and Hydra, it’s up to Fury and his Warriors to take them both out.

The reconstituted Howling Commandos join Fury’s ranks, but tragedy waits in the wings as the conflict blossoms into an all-out war on three fronts. As Hydra and Leviathan ready for their final strikes — on each other and the world — Fury will have to make some of the grittiest life-and-death choices of his long life!

Collecting Mighty Avengers #13 and 18, Secret Warriors #1-28, Dark Reign: The List – Secret Warriors, Siege: Secret Warriors, and material from Dark Reign: New Nation. Written By Brian Michael Bendis and Jonathan Hickman; and pencilled by Alex Maleev, Stefano Caselli, Alessandro Vitti, Gianluca Gugliotta, Mirko Colak, David Marquez and Ed McGuinness, with cover artwork by Jim Cheung.

The book is expected to be released in July 2012.

The Greatest Stories Ever Told?

Comic Book Resources have recently run a number of ‘Best Stories’ polls, as voted for by readers. You can find the homepage of these here:

As I write this, a few more have gone up, but it’s a work in progress.

And for you Marvel Omnibus fans, there are quite a few that may be of interest.

Daredevil

 

Daredevil #32

 

There are some fantastic surprises here, especially – for me –at number one. But such a great surprise…

Jason Aaron

 

Ghost Rider #34

 

There are a few Marvel titles in this writer’s best work, but only a couple are collected in omnibus format. I’m busy reading PunisherMax at the moment, and it’s a fantastic run so far. Oh, and in amongst the results is Ghost Rider. Fighting a Demon Truck Driver. Oh yes.

Matt Fraction

 

The Sensational Spider-man Annual #01

 

Matt’s stories are a bit like Marmite, but I’m a fan of much of his work. Here, we have a bit of The Immortal Iron Fist, as well as some Invincible Iron Man stuff. And The Sensational Spider-man Annual #01 was just amazing. Seriously; read it!

And finally…

Iron Fist

 

The Immortal Iron Fist #16

 

Even more Immortal goodness here, with Brubaker and Fraction’s run peppered among the Top Five. As a follow-up, Duane Swierzynski’s The Mortal Iron Fist is also on the list, available as both a TPB and HC.

So what do you think? Which other stories would you have put in the lists? And which definitely shouldn’t be there? Let me know below!
