Comic books are becoming an increasingly costly hobby.
Aside from Free Comic Book Day, there's probably no better time to stock up (or buy gifts for other people) than the holidays. Cyber Monday in particular has some fantastic deals this year that you should consider taking advantage of. Here are the best Cyber Monday sales we've seen.

Digital comics retailer ComiXology has an enormous amount of comic book and graphic novel sales going on, including the Batman titles mentioned above. Among the others: selected Marvel collections and graphic novels, Guardians of the Galaxy individual issues for $.99, graphic novels and comics from Image deeply discounted, Valiant Comics bundles and graphic novels and more.
