@piggykid1: Printing is a big reason comics cost so much, but $12 for a trade isn't a bad price. I know that's at a discount. It really gets expensive when you're buying several $3.99 books every week. I won't lie, the cost of comics is ridiculous. To combat this watch for sales on Comixology, try your luck with a Humble Bundle or checkout Cheap Graphic Novels and InStock Trades for collected editions or a service like DCBS for monthly singles.
I can't stand a braggart. It is probably my least favorite trait in a person. Complaining can have a purpose in the right situation. You know like complaining that you found a band-aid in your salad or whatever.
No shortage of great stuff this week. Man, I'd kill to have that Batman, Green Arrow and The Question piece by Gabe Hardman. Loved seeing the Norm Rapmund sketches. He did a Green Arrow cover sketch for me a while back. Super nice guy.
