Behold… the world of the bargain comic reader.

The beloved bargain bin is a staple of any comic book shop, but very few have what could be called an exhaustive selection of some of the newest and most popular books.  For a bargain comic reader to get involved with a new story, they have to “shop-hop”—but that means spending gas money or bus fare — and two or three stores.

Actually, that was the world of the bargain comic book reader.  Now, thanks to comic book publishers re-releasing many of their best titles for the wee price of a buck, it’s never been easier to pick up a good read. And the selection is as varied as on any new comics day.

The PREVIEWS catalog has put together a list of every $1 or less comics available, with a majority of the list made up of first issues, making them the perfect “jumping on” points to enjoy some of the current chart-toppers like Invincible; Hollywood-bound series like The Walking Dead and Y: The Last Man; and modern masterpieces like 100 Bullets. No longer will bus fare cut into comic book money!

Let’s see what you can get for a mere dollar.

At the top of the pile:

CONAN THE CIMMERIAN #0
Dark Horse Comics

Conan may have brand-name recognition — being an iconic figure of fantasy fiction and all — but when Conan raises hell in his Cimmerian homeland, this comic delivers nothing but the action, intrigue, and drama that Conan fans have come to expect, making him one of the most enduring characters in history.

FABLES #1—PETER & MAX PREVIEW
DC Comics/Vertigo

Writer Bill Willingham’s Fables has become one of DC/Vertigo’s “foundation” series, even spawning a novel from Willingham himself. Now you can introduce yourself to the saga of the exiled storybook characters living in our modern world, plus you’ll also get an excerpt from the Peter & Max novel as a bonus!

Y: THE LAST MAN #1 (SPECIAL EDITION)
DC Comics/Vertigo

The buzz and hopes have always been high for this multiple award-winning and Hollywood-bound Vertigo series, and during its 60-issue run, it never let us down. Considered a modern masterpiece of first issues, this special edition kicks off Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra’s saga about the last man who should be the last man alive.

MARVEL_ZOMBIES gijoe

MARVEL ZOMBIES #1 (MGC EDITION)
Marvel Comics

Robert Kirkman further solidified his reign as the “Zombie King of Comics” by giving Marvel’s heroes the gift of cannibalistic and horrific un-life. Starting with an experiment gone wrong and ending with a zombie feast on a cosmic deity, experience “day one” of the universe-spanning and multi-volume Marvel Zombies for just a dollar!

G.I. JOE: A NEW BEGINNING #0
IDW Publishing

What began as an ’80s throwback for comics fans led to a chart-topping comics smash that has attracted readers of all ages. G.I. Joe: A New Beginning #0 is filled with old-school, over-the-top action and new-school twists, which is everything a JOE fan could possibly want. It sold out on release, but here’s a second chance to get one of the most influential books of the decade for a rock-bottom price.

IMAGE FIRSTS: SAVAGE DRAGON #1
Image Comics

Erik Larsen’s adrenaline-pumping and long-running magnum opus had to start somewhere, and courtesy of the “Image Firsts” collection, the Savage Dragon’s pilot tale isn’t hard to come by. With the Savage Dragon series hot-off-the-heels of its biggest arc ever, the premier issue of Savage Dragon is the perfect place for new fans to jump into the title.

IMAGE FIRSTS: THE WALKING DEAD #1
Image Comics

See where it all started with the first issue of writer Robert Kirkman’s critically acclaimed series of apocalyptic zombie horror — soon to be a TV series on cable network AMC. Featuring the art of Tony Moore, this one set the stage for one of comics’ most harrowing ongoing tales of survival.

THE BOYS #1 (DYNAMITE EDITION)
DE/Dynamite Entertainment

Garth Ennis’s controversial The Boys just jumped onto the fast-track to the silver screen, and now thanks to Dynamite Entertainment, it’s now cheap and easy to see where the story started for a CIA team dedicated to keeping superheroes in check… by any means necessary.
