So you say you’re a big fan of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” series but haven’t had time yet to read the comics on which it’s based? Well, now’s your chance as comiXology is offering the first 99 issues at half-price from July 10-15.

From the Press Release:
As zombies, survivors, and comic fans far and wide descend upon Comic-Con International 2012 in San Diego this week, comiXology – the revolutionary digital comics distribution platform with over 75 million comic downloads to date – is celebrating the annual event and the pending debut of The Walking Dead #100 by dropping the price on the first 99 issues of The Walking Dead comic series and offering three brand new limited edition digital-only omnibus editions collecting Issues #1-99 that will only be available for the duration of this sale. Now is your chance to read the original The Walking Dead ongoing comic book series from creator Robert Kirkman at a don’t-miss fantastic price.

The Eisner Award-wining The Walking Dead comic series was not only the #1 seller in graphic novels for 2011 — and is on track to retain the title again this year — but was also the top-rated basic cable drama of all time during Season Two of the hit AMC television series. Kirkman serves as both writer and executive producer on the TV series.

“You can’t walk the floor of Comic-Con without seeing some form of The Walking Dead. At this point it’s a pop culture mainstay, no doubt about it,” said comiXology CEO and co-founder David Steinberger. “I honestly don’t know of a better way to celebrate Comic-Con and the debut of the 100th issue of The Walking Dead than to have a sale and offer these unique limited edition digital-only omnibuses that will only be available during the sale.”

All issues of The Walking Dead up through #99 will be half-off, as will the existing sixteen collections that cover first 96 issues of the series. In addition, for this week only, comiXology will be offering three digital-only omnibuses that collect issues #1-99 — making it easier than ever to jump on board this series.

ComiXology Announces The Walking Dead Half-Off Sale July 10–15

Last week Skybound, The Walking Dead creator/writer Robert Kirkman’s imprint at Image Comics, and comiXology launched The Walking Dead 3.1 iOS app. This newly upgraded app’s smooth new design and interface not only enhances overall stability over the previous version, but it also increases the usability beyond the original 2.0 functionality. New advancements in the UI enables a near instantaneous launch, dramatically cutting down on the app’s load times, and allows fans of The Walking Dead to start reading faster than ever before.

Based on one of the most successful and popular comic books of all time, written by Robert Kirkman, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” captures the ongoing human drama following a zombie apocalypse. The series follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who are traveling in search of a safe and secure home. However, instead of the zombies, it is the living who remain that truly become the walking dead. Season Two debuted with the highest premiere in television history last fall, and Season Three is expected to shatter that same record later this year.

Things Get Bloody on Blu-ray When The Sword and the Claw Clash!



Get ready to fight dirty as the two-fisted, ultraviolent grindhouse classic The Sword and the Claw is poised to hose down your home video collection with geysers of arterial spray! Coming to us from Alamo Drafthouse’s American Genre Film Archive on January 23, 2018, this is one title you’re not gonna wanna miss!

We’ve been obsessed with Turkish genre films for decades,” said AGFA director Joe Ziemba. “We were blown away to discover that we had the only known 35mm print in existence for this movie, which also happens to be Turkey’s most insane battle epic. This is the first 4K preservation of a Turkish genre film in history. We couldn’t be happier to share it with the world.

Special features include a new 4K scan from the only surviving 35mm theatrical print, face-smashing action trailers from the AGFA vault, and bonus movie Brawl Busters, which features a new 2K scan from an original theatrical print.

The eye candy doesn’t stop there either! This bad boy is coming with some neat reversible cover art with illustration by Alexis Ziritt (Space Riders)!

They took his money. They took his family. And now, they’ve taken his hands. But they can never take his revenge! Exploding from the same hallucinogenic netherworld as TURKISH STAR WARS, THE SWORD AND THE CLAW stars Turkish genre legend Cüneyt Arkin in his most iconic role. It’s CONAN THE BARBARIAN meets The Three Stooges meets DOLEMITE with more lo-fi bloodshed, pop-art visuals, and bizarro dubbing than the boundaries of reality can handle. This is the movie that Kung-Fu Express described as the “Dirtiest fighting ever!”
