How To Get Your Hands On Affordable Comics In The UK

How To Get Your Hands On Affordable Comics In The UK - Deadpool, The Punisher, Gwenpool, Darth Vader and More


Recently one thing I've been really into is reading. I've specifically been really into reading graphic novels and comics. For a while now I've been into reading manga. I'm a big fan of the likes of Sailor Moon, Sailor V and Cardcaptor Sakura but one of my new loves has been superhero comics and sometimes anti-hero comics if we're being all technical here. I've not got a huge collection of comics but I have a respectable little collection that I'm very nearly through reading. One thing I have noticed though is that here in the UK graphic novels and comics can be a little on the expensive side. This is frustrating but with a little research, I found a store that sells them at quite affordable prices, well compared to other stores I've looked at. That store? The Works believe it or not.

Affordable Deadpool graphic novels

Seriously, if you wanna get your hands on a few affordable comics to keep you occupied, check out The Works. As a big Deadpool fan, I picked up every available Deadpool comic which they had in stock and now part of me wants to create my own little Deadpool dedicated shelf on my bookcase, complete with my Deadpool as Bob Ross Funko POP! Anyway, the first book I picked up was Deadpool - The Complete Collection which contains episodes 50-63. You can probably imagine it is quite a big book. I believe this RRPs at around £29 but The Works are selling it for £10 which I think is pretty damn good.

If you're a big fan of the merc with a mouth then you'll probably love to have this in your collection. The second of the bigger Deadpool graphic novels I got my hands on was Deadpool Firsts. This again set me back £10 and contains a collection of stories from various series. This, in my opinion, is the ideal book to get for those new to both Deadpool and comics.

Comics from as little as £5

As for the smaller comics, they set me back £5 each. However, considering the RRPs are between £12.50 and £16.99 I think I got myself a good deal. The first of the smaller books I got was Deadpool MAX - Involuntary Armageddon. This comic sees Wade Wilson ditch his job as Deadpool to spend the rest of his life with his blushing bride. Obviously, that's not really what happens but I don't want to spoil it for anyone. The next book I got was Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe. This is for sure one of my favourites. The title of this is pretty self-explanatory, to be honest. 

Another one of my favourites is Deadpool Kills Deadpool in which Deadpool attempts to kill himself in various forms. Other favourites of mine that I picked up include Deadpool and Cable - Split Second as well as Deadpool vs Thanos. Both of which contain Deadpool alongside two other awesome characters who I love.

Even more affordable comics from The Works

As for non-Deadpool graphic novels, I got my hands on three. The first? The Unbelievable Gwenpool - Volume 1 which cost me £5. Now let me tell you I LOVED this. Not heard of Gwenpool? Basically, she was a regular comic book reader who woke up in the Marvel universe. She's super beautiful, funny and has no skills or training. Basically, I love her. The second non-Deadpool book I got my hands on was The Punisher - The Complete Collection Vol 1 for £10. Now let me tell you, I thoroughly enjoyed this. The story follows Frank Castle, a guy who lost his wife and kids to the mob and has since become an unstoppable man who likes to kill. The story is super interesting and has been one of my favourite reads. 

And last but not least I got my hands on the hardback Star Wars - Darth Vader which set me back £10. I've not got round to reading this yet. However, let's be honest, Darth Vader is one of the greatest antagonists of all time so it should be amazing. In fact, it isn't a case of should be amazing, it will be amazing.

Are you a graphic novel/comic fan? Who is your favourite character? What are your thoughts on Deadpool?
