    Thanks for the tip. Too bad no Spider-man. Maybe I'll get the Iron Man and FF4...

    I knew it was too good to be true. Bleeding Cool is reporting the price is just a glitch and is being fixed. If you were one of the first ones to order you might still get your stuff, but more than likely Amazon will cancel your order.

    Amazon lowered the prices today to $8.xx so I doubt $14.99 was a glitch, I requested a price adjustment today.

    Yeah, it seems they fixed everything now. At first I thought it was a real sale, since a lot of the stuff had been out for a while and went through a few printings.

    Nothing but Marvel makes up the top 14 book bestsellers right now. Gee, I wonder why :rofl:

    They had a sell-off, but the glitch was every book in amazon's top 100 got some massive discount.

    I picked up Daredevil omnibus vol 2, Madman Gargantua, and Criminal Deluxe HC for less than $50. Retail on those three is almost $300.

    Amazon had a list of books in mind they wanted to sell off, but something screwed up and all these books were put on sale. So I expect to have some of my order canceled.

    Hmm, it seems some orders have been getting canceled, but others that had multiple copies of something were reduced to 1 copy. We might still have a chance.

    Yeah, the ebay flippers who ordered 50 copies of Daredevil are seeing orders reduced to quantities of "1."

    Most orders are being filled, regardless of some of the price mistakes. Here's hoping I get everything I ordered :x:

    Soooo all my orders were canceled except for Walking Dead Book 3 and 4, which has already shipped. Guess I saved some monies at least.

    Kinda wish they had at least sent me Book 1 and 2

    I checked again, and sure enough I got the standard e-mail about 3 hours after I looked at amazon.

    I wonder if anyone got lucky with the omnibus stuff...

    they were cleaning out inventory, so they must have had SOMETHING left. but i think bleedingcool logged like 20,000 people ordered the vol.1 daredevil omnibus.

    it was nuts...
