Online Price War Hits Graphic Novels
Discounts to 70% Off

The heavy discounts are hitting new titles, perennials, and even advance order products.
Brick and mortar stores are collateral damage (or potential beneficiaries, if they stock up at low prices) in the battle between these two online giants, both of which are selling at well below cost on some titles.
