Thor, Walt Simonson Omnibus for $62.50


I'll make this quick since time is running out, you can get this incredible book for half off (plus a measly $3 for shipping) at new geek discount site Thwipster.com. This omnibus collects the entire Thor run by legendary writer/artist Walt Simonson and is quite possibly the best Thor stories ever collected. You better hurry because this is a daily deal site and you only have 23 Hours & 18 Minutes left to buy this humongous (1,192 pages!) book. Here's an excerpt from a recent Newsarama article for those worried about the legitimacy of Thwipster:

"Daily deal websites like Groupon and Living Social have exploded in popularity in the last two years, so it was only a matter of time before someone came along and applied that business model to the world of comic books and related genre entertainment...

...Though new to selling comics, [Thwipster co-founder] Lance Sells isn't a total stranger to the industry. He's the director of Motherland, an animation studio who has worked on cinemas for DC Universe Online and Marvel's Spider-Woman motion comic.

In its early days, Thwipster has attracted publicity from blogs including Topless Robot, Comics Alliance and The Beat, with the easy hook of "Groupon for geeks." Though Sells won't disclose the actual numbers of books being moved, thus far nearly every daily deal has sold out, usually within a few hours of being posted."
