Cheap Captain America Comics

There’s good synergy going on lately between Marvel Comics and Marvel Studios. Now if only DC/Warner Bros. could do the same. Opening in April is the Captain America sequel, The Winter Soldier, which means now is a great time to get to know the characters from the comics, such as Black Widow, The Winter Soldier and of course, Cap himself. I haven’t read most of these on-sale collections, but I can recommend The Longest Winter story.

All of the comics on sale at Marvel’s digital comics shop are collections, (otherwise knows as Trade Paperbacks), which means you get a few issues of a monthly series together, to tell one, complete story. Check out the 4 options below, or here.

DnQ Sale

We’re beating the Black Friday rushes by starting ours early. Buy any item from our web store* and receive a b-a-n-a-n-a-s 40% discount, from today (Monday, November 25th) until Monday, December 2nd.

*Yes, any item! This sale includes books, comics, posters and more. And, since all our 2013 titles are now available in the US and Canada, every awesome book you’ve thought about buying this year is also available at a sale price. There’s a handy round-up of them over on our blog.


Los Angeles area’s Leading Retail Comic Book Store Chain expands the concept of Black Friday Sale into a weeks-long event with unprecedented discounts throughout the stores, and a Graphic Novel Sale that tests your patience for two weeks. 

Collector’s Paradise Comics & Gallery, is proud to announce that we will, once again, be bringing Progressive Graphic Novel Sale as part of our Black Friday promotion to Los Angeles area this year.

Last year’s Black Friday two-week event was fantastic.” said owner Edward Greenberg, adding:  ” We learned so much about how to do this, and will use the lessons this year to provide an even better experience for our customers.”

While many stores host Black Friday events, Collector’s Paradise decided that this year they would try out a new approach: Buy 2 Get 1 FREE on Anything in the store, mix and match.  A customer can buy an action figure, a t-shirt and a graphic novel, and the lowest of the three items is FREE.  It’s a “design your own sale Sale”.

Comics by the Pound is another way to make a Sale more fun for the customers.  There will be a huge selection of comic books available in boxes, for customers to look through and pick the ones they would like to buy for just $3 per pound.  Considering an average single comic book is about $4 these days, getting a bunch of them for just $3 is an amazing deal.  Not only that, but every purchase gives you an entry into our raffle where one winner per store will win an amount up to what they have bought for FREE .

The most ambitious part of the Black Friday Sale is something not heard of in the comic book industry, the Progressive Discount Graphic Novel Sale.  On BlackFriday, the stores will have boxes full of graphic novels at 50% off.  Whatever does not sell that day, will be 52% off next day, 54% off the following day, and so on, until 2 weeks later, when it reaches 80% off for whatever is still left over.  Every customer will have to make a decision on whether to wait out for a higher discount or to buy the books before someone else grabs them.  It’s a fun and exciting way to get deals on awesome reads.

Please visit Collector’s Paradise’ official site, for full details about our Black Friday and Progressive GN Sale events.For additional information, please contact Edward Greenberg, managing partner of Collector’s Paradise @ 818-999-9455 (business) or by email,

Collector’s Paradise Canoga Park is located at 7131 Winnetka Ave, at Sherman Way in Canoga Park.  Collector’s Paradise Pasadena is located at 319 S. Arroyo Parkway Unit 4, at the corner of Del Mar  in Pasadena.
