“The Underneath”: 40% Off Alias!

Leave a comment

Forbidden Planet International is offering the Alias omnibus at a very special pre-order price of just £45.00 – that’s a saving of 40% off the £75 RRP!

But you have to get there fast – that price ends this Wednesday 14th May 2014.

As previously reported, the reprint, written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Michael Gaydos, is released in September, and centres around Jessica Jones, superhero-turned-detective. She’s now best-known for marrying Luke Cage and featuring in the Avengers books.But she also grew up in High School with one Peter Parker. You may know the name…

I expect the price to go up to about £50.25 once the promotion is over.

Oh, and this might not be one for younger fans: there’s a lot of swearing and some sexual references too. Nonetheless, Alias is a much-loved series by one of Marvel’s biggest writers!

Check out FP.co.uk for that price.

Alias Omnibus Reprint Coming Soon!

1 Comment

The brilliant Marvel Omnibus reprints continue this summer – with Alias!

Alias Omnibus

 

The series, helmed by Brian Michael Bendis (New Avengers; Ultimate Spider-Man) and Michael Gaydos (Powerless; Daredevil: Redemption), focuses on Jessica Jones, superhero-turned-private-investigator. Now, she’s married to Luke Cage (Power Man) and crops up in the Avengers, but this omnibus reprint introduced her to the MU.

Here’s the synopsis:

Meet Jessica Jones. Once upon a time, she was a costumed super hero. But not a very good one. Now a chain-smoking, self-destructive alcoholic, Jessica is the owner and sole employee of Alias Investigations — a small, private-investigative firm specializing in superhuman cases. This deluxe hardcover collects all 28 issues of super-scribe Brian Michael Bendis’ ALIAS — plus all-new, behind-the-scenes bonus material compiled in conjunction with the writer himself! In her inaugural arc, Jessica’s life immediately becomes expendable when she uncovers the potentially explosive secret of one hero’s true identity. But her wit, charm and intelligence just may help her survive through another day. Thrust into the midst of a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels, has Jessica burned too many bridges to turn to old friends for help? Plus: Jessica travels to upstate New York to investigate the disappearance of a teenage girl rumored to be a mutant in a prejudiced small town; goes on a date with the Astonishing Ant-Man; teams up with Jessica Drew; the original Spider-Woman; and confronts the demons of her past! Collects Alias #1-28 and What If Jessica Jones Had Joined The Avengers?
720 PGS./Explicit Content …$99.99″

It’s a surprisingly expensive collection, with a beautiful cover by David Mack and Mark Bagley.

It’s a very popular series and the original omnibus has been long out-of-print, so I expect this to be high on many people’s ‘To Buy’ list!

NOTES:

All details set to change.

Bold:     Best deal.

–:           Omnibus not available/ OOP (out-of-print)

Underlined:        Variant edition only. Generally, variants copies have a more limited printing, so are rarer to purchase.

Some items are not in stock at forbiddenplanet.com, but are, apparently, available to order. I have decided not to include these prices as there is no guarantee that you will get the omnibus (drawing on numerous personal experiences), despite their expected delivery of omnibuses within 21 days. If you want to risk it – bearing in mind that they do not normally let you know if they can get the omnibus in – please see the forbiddenplanet.com website.

Things to remember:

Look at regular blog for deals at other stores, like whsmith.co.uk, ebay.co.uk, and waterstones.com. Please see the Pre-Order Price List for upcoming releases.

All prices are correct at time of update. Prices do not include postage and packaging.
