Marvel Unlimited NYCC 2015 Deal

You’ve only got a couple more days for this deal but you know what a fan I am of Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited, which is kind of a Netflix for comics — you pay a fee (monthly or yearly) which grants you access to a library of Marvel comic books. Is it EVERY Marvel comic book? No. Is it over 13,000 Marvel comic books? Yes. Is it worth it? By Odin’s smelly sweat socks, of course it is. And this deal makes it even better.

Preview tons of digital comics for free, search back issues, and enjoy with Marvel.com’s special online reader.

Marvel is offering some free stuff if you get a subscription during New York Comic Con. Hit the link for details.

To clarify what’s in the digital library: old stuff and new stuff. There are some gaps. You might be reading a series and suddenly an issue is missing. But they do a pretty good job of adding newly published issues a few months after they come out. Mostly, though, you can read some really great comic books going all the way back to the 1940s. Recently examples of stuff I’ve read include:

The Man In The Ant Hill” from Tales to Astonish #27: The first appearance of Hank Pym, who would later become Ant-Man (and Giant-Man, Yellowjacket, and, weirdly, the Wasp).

Captain America: this particular collection of comics came out in the 80s and is very, very awesome. Steve Rogers is told by the U.S. Government that he can’t be Captain America anymore unless he does something that I can’t remember but would go against his beliefs. So he says “bite me”, gets a new costume, and the government finds someone else to be Cap. Worth getting the trade paperback even if you don’t get a Marvel Unlimited subscription. Also awesome are the early Captain American & The Falcon books. These comics deal with race in a way that is rare for the medium, and the comics were coming out during a time when racial tensions were high — and they talk about that. Falc is never Cap’s sidekick, and his first appearance (sans wings) features one of my all-time favorite costumes. It’s so cool it hurts.

Civil War: You know that upcoming Marvel movie? You can read all of the comics that inspired it. In this case, I actually think you’re better off reading it digitally as opposed to getting the trade paperback, because the tie-ins are very important and one of the things you can do with the Unlimited subscription is read by “Comic Event”. That either makes sense to you or you checked out a long time ago.

X-Factor: Peter David is one of my favorite comic book writers. He wrote my all-time favorite Hulk line, “Best way to make people of one mind is to bash their heads together. You can read his “Incredible Hulk” run, which is awesome. But his work on “X-Factor” is arguably even better because he takes less well-known characters and makes them interesting, funny, and he makes you care what happens to them. I’m talking about characters like Madrox The Multiple Man and Pip The Troll. There are lines that I’ve quoted to my wife and kids totally out of context that they agreed were hilarious.

Anyway, if you were thinking of getting a Marvel Unlimited subscription, you can get one now and also get some free stuff. Who doesn’t like free stuff?

Buy This If You Want To Piss Off Your Wife

DaddyTips readers know that we like to post DaddyDeals when we find them. Good prices on, you know, stuff. (By the way, we heard the portable DVD player deal sold out almost as soon as we posted it. Although we take no actual responsibility, we feel bad that you weren’t able to get the deal. We have to say “we take no actual responsibility” for legal reasons. At least that’s what we’ve been told.)

This deal we don’t actually expect anyone to buy, unless they happen to be in the market for such a thing. When we saw it, we thought, “wow, how funny would it be if a guy bought this for his wife?” Why? Because the item in question is a Neoprene Waist Trimmer Belt.

Nothing says “I want to sleep on the couch tonight” like buying your wife a Neoprene Waist Trimmer Belt.

If that’s how you roll, it is currently, as of this writing, on sale for under 10 dollars.

GoodSense Aller-Ease Tablets – DaddyDeal

DaddyDeal on GoodSense Aller-Ease Tablets, 120 Count bottle for $27.74. Regular price is $36.99.

Since Amazon did the math for me, here’s the breakdown:

At the regular price of $36.99, this bottle of 120 tablets costs $0.31 per tablet.

At the DEAL price of $27.74, the same bottle of 120 tablets costs $0.23 per tablet.

Who says this isn’t the DaddyTips age of copying someone else’s work?

It’s also a 25% discount. So if you happen to use these particular allergy tablets, you may want to buy them, and quickly, because it’s an Amazon Lightning Deal, which means it will expire soon. Caveat buyor.

Just 15 dollars at Amazon.com.

Aren’t we nice? We are.

Avengers Blu-ray-DVD Combo Deal

Yep. That’s right. You’ve seen Avengers: Age of Ultron and for some reason you don’t already own a copy of The Avengers movie from 2012. (Was The Avengers only three years ago? Wow.) Jeff Bezos has your back. (Well, Amazon does. OK, not really. But “Jeff Bezos has your back” was a fun sentence to type.) You can order The Avengers Blu-ray-DVD Combo for only 15 dollars. The disc(s) is(are) currently holding the number one spot in Amazon’s Science Fiction Blu-ray Discs section, and therefore shipping may take an extra day or two, according to the site. But it’s worth it. Take our word for it.
