I splurged a little as a birthday present to myself
Wednesday Comics is to the left, oddly enough the cover is slightly sticky and it smells really weird
You don't understand; it's smaller than your haul
Fuck yes I have Fury Max coming in the mail tomorrow along with
>One Trick Rip Off
>East of West vol.1
>Captcha is a pic of a cat
Recent trade purchases:
Requiem: Vampire Knight Vol. 1&2
Picked this color test for Defenders up today. Thought it was pretty cool. Also, any one know which issue this is? Just has a page number.
My latest haul.
Got witzend for birthday, got Essential Dr. Strange v.1 (which is OOP), Battler Britton, and Tarnished Angel half price, got Atomic Knights quarter price (it was originally $40, fuck that).
I've recently added some more B.P.R.D and Hellboy, and maybe a walking dead or two.
I also like my Cerebus but the penultimate two volumes are OOP and expensive as fuck.`
Yes. JLA is how I got into comics. Also how I got into Morrison. The main story of vol. 2 is one of the best stories featuring that villain ever written.
You'll want to pirate or buy DC 1,000,000 though, one of the issues (forget if it's in vol. 2 or vol. 3) is a plot-important tie-in, so it basically reads
>synopsis of DC1M
>summary of rest of DC1M
Picked up a copy of 300 today for a buck. Only issue is that the binding is nearly completely destroyed. It looks like it's all there, so I'm going to try and use some wood glue or something to rebind it. It's worked before, so it should work in this case. If not it was still just a buck.
So my recent purchases are as follows. I'm going to get the rest of Empowered and Invincible Compendium 1 with my next paycheck but I'm lost as to what I should start next. I'm thinking about Savage Dragon.
Chew Omnivore 4
Deadly Class Volume 1
Invincible Compendium 2
Nowhere Men Volume 1
Rat Queens Volume 1
Haven't bought anything since Gundam. Need to finish it and look into getting more. I have so many series that I actually need to complete or get caught up on.
>Batman vs Robin
>Batman & Robin Must Die
>Green Lantern and <insert derivative bullshit here>
God Damn. Is this it? Nothing but endless retreads of the same old shit? So much good out there and this is what the mindless masses buy. You losers remind me of the guys I see in black leather riding harleys. They lack imagination or fear individuality so they buy a limited lifestyle that keeps them safe with it's predigested boundaries.
Fuck. Please, before you die, try to think beyond the same old shit. It was great when I was twelve. I'm not twelve anymore. You aren't either.
Fuck off and let the guy enjoy his capeshit. Don't you have an indie book that you need to go pretend to read or something?
ending made me tear up. how they ended the threat of the plutonian is the most unexpected ending i have ever read. it gets soft around issue 12 or thirteen but picks up in the twenties.
Here you go. The stitching is literally holding on by a thread. But as I said. I think all the pages are still there. Just a little glue should due to fix this.
What's that massive Star Wars book next to Dark Tower?
Also, you gotta step up your indie game. Focus less on long running series; you're missing out on a old of good one-offs.
Marvel stuff is pretty solid looking though.
If you're looking for series, I'd recommend Manhattan Projects, based on what you've got. All the zaniness of Chew but in a completely different way.
On the subject of Chew, I love - LOVE - that boo, but man those Omnivores really aren't that great looking. Glad I stuck with the trades.
it's a mix of all sorts of star wars stories focusing on luke skywalker. it's pretty neat stuff.
i don't really buy much anymore except series that are currently running or trades that are getting put into print like hellblazer. i have plenty of indie comics on my tablets
Already posted my shelf in here, but these are my buys from this week.
i've still not read any wonder woman yet
so much to read, so little time. i'm about to go start the 10th tpb of invincible right now on my tablet, such comfy reading while watching sc2 streams via plex in my family room.
going to buy the compendiums probably... really want to support it, really fun book so far
>Ignores The Ring of the Nibelung, ignores Chew, hell even ignores Fury MAX, and either didn't read or comprehend anything going on in Morrison's Batman that makes it stand out from typical capeshit
If you're going to nerd rage like a faggot, don't be so goddamn retarded.
He could very easily afford that with a middle-middle class income, especially if he's good at finding deals (regarding comics and in general) and torrents movies (you will not believe how much money plebs spend on dvds and blur-rays).
I feel like a douche posting the exact same thing as I did in the last /co/llection thread, but you asked...
1. Whedon Stuff
2. Independents/Young Marvel
4. Ultimate Marvel
I also have about 300 floppies.
>He could very easily afford that with a middle-middle class income
Well yea, but it would take quite a big chunk out of each paycheck.
>torrents movies (you will not believe how much money plebs spend on dvds and blur-rays).
Look, I torrent movies a lot, but I don't know why it's considered plebian to buy Blu-ray's. I try to buy the shit I really like. It's just nice to have them.
This. It's just easier to buy in bulk every few weeks or months, but it's also fun to participate in shelf threads.
Also, I doubt anybody pays enough attention to other people's shelves to notice that nothing's changed.
>It wasn't great, but I bought it anyways.
Hey, to each his own, but...
1. No, it's not great. It's not even good. I've read a LOT of Bendis and this is easily his worst work ever. This is straight-up shit-tier at its lowest. AoU is the epitome of everything that's wrong with Marvel comics right now.
2. Why would you buy something that's not great?
>picked up a new bookshelf for like 16 bucks
>got it home and put my small collection of trades and manga on it
>picked up Ms Marvel vol 8 as well
>get done reading it, place it on the shelf
>leave the house for like 10 minutes
>the shelf has collapsed in on itself
fuckin Carol "Thunderthighs" Danvers strikes again!
thinking of picking up something else next week.
there are a few more things that I want to get from DC
Lex Luthor Man of Steel
Gotham City Sirens
Superman / Cap Marvel First Thunder
Ostrander's Suicide Squad
want to finish other collections I got goin' on first though. Vol 5 of WW doesnt come out till October, which sucks for me
haven't added much since I last posted here, shame. thing is, i find less and less comics that i like enough to buy.
My latest order. I'm really looking forward to reading Fury Max.
My collection was finally in one place for the first time in several months, so I've finally got up-to-date pics. 1/5.
Question for the thread, what upcoming release are you most looking forward to?
>Uncle Scrooge US releases
>Absolute Batman Inc.
>FF by Hickman Omnibus vol. 2
>Thor: GoT Oversized HC
>Moon Knight Bad Moon Rising
>Moon Knight From The Dead
>Green Arrow The Outsiders War
>Animal Man Evolve or Die
>Phantom Stranger The Crack in Creation
>The Spectre: Wrath of God
>my hobby is to spend thousands of dollars on collected editions of cape comics.
I'm not him, but I get what he's saying. Having 1-3 shelves of your favorite comics is one thing, but 3-4 bookshelves? It's madness.
Yeah, all these collections start to look the same too, especially if you go to CBR, that place is full of this autism.
I honestly respect a guy more who has one shelf of comics that are personal to him, than a guy who has 50 Marvel Omnibuses.
/v/ fag here.
An Xbox One costs about $500 depending on some factos. Some of these shelves have like $5000 worth of stuff on them, and they probably are used less than a video-game console.
So, yeah, its kinda crazy.
Spawn of Mars and Other Stories
Judge Dredd: Mega-City Two
All-New Ghost Rider Volume 1: Engines of Vengeance
DC: The New Frontier Deluxe Edition
The Spectre Vol. 2: Wrath of God
Showcase Presents: Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew
>A game is $60 has atleast 10 hours of gameplay
>Graphic Novel ranges from $10 - $100 probably takes less than 2hrs to read.
Even then, my library of video-games always hovered around 20, with me selling what I didn't like/never played on EBAY.
There's no reason to have that many comics, other than being a hoarding autistic. its a fact.
Tbh, these guys should be embarrassed in some way. They make these threads here (and on CBR) for dick-measuring and lauding by idiots like them.
Any casual person would think of this as hoarding or some disease. There are people in here with perfectly reasonable shelves though, but there will always be that autist who thinks spending 10000 on comics is cool.
For the record, I come into these threads wondering:
>I wonder what /co/'s taste in comics are like
>What do people read
Which these threads are interesting barometers of.
My thoughts when I guy posts five shelves worth of comics:
>He probably doesn't like/read half the comics he owns
>There are people in this world who could spend his money better than him.
For some people the collection is part of the hobby. This happens for video games, comics, records, blu-rays, and whatever else people buy. It's just a different mindset from what you're trying to make a comparison too. You said you're hovering around 20 but their are people that keep every game they ever buy and they're probably proud of their collection of Atari Lynx games and have a special bag just for carrying them. Medium doesn't matter here.

Besides those 3x3 threads this is where I pick up most of my comic recommendations. It's also nice to get to see what a collection actually looks like and sometimes things like the binding , paper quality, or ugly recoloring. Honestly things like comixology are a god send because I don't have to buy a physical copy of a trade in a long running series like Hellblazer. I can stick to one shot graphic novels or short runs for my shelf without just pirating everything else.
I'm this guy. >>64606127
For me, I collect because I enjoy the stories, because (for the non-mainstream books) I want to support the creators, and because it's much easier to share with friends. Most people don't like reading comics digitally, and I lend my books out a shitton.
The bitching about shelves is pretty silly. Most of these collections are fine.
Of those four, the only annoying autistic is Johnny Walker, who posts in everyone of these threads, so you get the sense that he's proud of wasting his money.
I just wish that getting my hands on chapters 7 and on wasn't such a pain in the ass! Heavy Metal has 2 volumes out that collect 3 chapters each, but that's it. The only way to get the remaining chapters is by buying the Panini Press books which only have two chapters per book. For fuck's sake, Heavy Metal, step up.
yeah I don't like reading comics digitally, but I put up with it because I just don't have the shelf room to spare for longer series. Those Hellblazer trades are really nice, but I just don't want to have 8 volumes of it physically
Dang. I have way less than the other borderline unhealthy guy though.
That's a weird standard. But I doubt it'll double so maybe I won't die of owning comics.

Is Kirby Genesis worth picking?
It looks interesting in a messy, cosmic way, but I feel a bit weird reading a homage without ever reading Kirby's work... I intent to start his Fourth World stuff as soon as I get the time.
You can tell this guy is legitimately offended by this, which I just love. Like the other anons, I pop in here to see what anons enjoy.
It feels good knowing that these autists with large collections are just as insecure as I think they are.
>i'll just shit up the thread and anyone who defends themselves is insecure
To be fair you're all just shit posting anyways. These threads are usually devoid of negativity but since we already spotted /v/ earlier we can safely assume this is all just spillover from memeland. Enjoy your stay.
Our average purchase order from customers is actually around $270, its crazy.
And, yes, most of our customers are autistic and spend way too much money on this shit. It's one of the reasons the warehouse is moving from Fort Wayne to Tennessee (and I'll be losing my job, yay).
>and I'll be losing my job
Good. You seem like a douche bag who only cares about his paycheck anyways. I'd tell you not to bite the hand that feeds you but you clearly already have other ways you'd be retained at your position in some way or another.
Another disposable worker. Scurry back to the fast food restaurant. I'll be over here with all the other autists with a salaried position, job security, benefits and spending my money how I see fit. Good luck paying your rent.
I get my comics a lot of different places but here is my instocktrades (assuming that's where you're from). I never ordered that much at one time but I guess I probably bought more frequently than most.. Here's my first page
No, but its only part-time while I go to school.
Don't worry about it, your definitely not the problem. You should see some of the e-mails the girl gets at Customer Service though.
you betchur butt they do. i really need to make another other, i just got infinity gauntlet omnibus in mail saturday but i need manhattan projects vol 4, guardians of the galaxy 20$ ultimate collection and some other bits
I spent I budget myself $20 a week for comics.
Over the course of four years that adds up, and it's only like an hour of work for most people a week, if even that. People can be responsible with their money and still have large collections, especially if they keep at it long enough.
Dylan Dog's good stuff. It's translated, there are some legal issues with Groucho so they erase his mustache and call him Felix. It's not ideal but it's all that's available. Like $20 and worth it for the size.
droped $50 today, need to go back and get a bunch of judge dredd
If you like Warhammer 40k, check out this crazy vampire comic that Heavy Metal does called Requiem: Vampire Knight. Vol 2 is pictured here >>64595403
It's a hyper-violent undead fantasy/sci fi series, and the art is equal parts gorgeous, brutal, and totally fucking bonkers. Pic related.
Yeah. I mentioned here >>64608603 that Heavy Metal has published the first six chapters in 2 tpbs that run about $20 each. Amazon, ebay, etc sell 'em.
After that it gets more complicated...Heavy Metal hasn't published any trades past those. Panini Press has published up to Ch. 10 or so, but their trades are only 2 chapters per book. So you can either wait to see if Heavy Metal will step their shit up or mix and match.
So I have an interesting question that's kind of related to this thread. How much do you spend on comics a month
My purchases vary, because I don't have a LCS. Sometimes I go months without buying, but it's 15-40 every 3 month, and I make a big 80-100 dollar purchase about once a year.
>Putting stupid toys in front of your books so you can't pull them out, to show everybody that you obviously don't read, and will never read the material
>Having shelves full of wrapped books that you will never read, but are merely a prestige decoration
I hate you people
I can't buy anything cause I bought a car.
>>Putting stupid toys in front of your books so you can't pull them out, to show everybody that you obviously don't read, and will never read the material
Do you think they superglue the figure to the shelf? If you need a book that's behind the toy you move the toy ding dong
why do you people spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on fucking paper?
thats all this shit is, paper, you can read any of this material online without owning your own private copy
sorry I disagree with you Anon, I like the feel of my comics in my hands.
The internet doesn't smell as good.
This isn't even all of it, last month I spent $80 on witzend.
Just came back from the local Half-Price Books and snagged the first trade for Agent Venom. Now I'm looking online and see that the next two trades are OOP, unless I get the giant hardcover for Circle Of Four. What's the deal with that?
If I can't get the rest of the series at a reasonable price, I may just go back and exchange it for the first trade of Pak's Xtreme X-Men.
A lot of collections here are someone spending $20 a week for years. If you can't afford $20 a week, you should focus on your career instead of reading comics on your stolen laptop anyway.
... You know that toys move, right? They're not even heavy.
Has anybody else noticed that /co/'s started going overboard with 'YOU DON'T READ COMICS?' I've been noticing it a lot lately, but it's more than a little bit worrisome when that's the first reaction to seeing shelves full of comics.
>YOU DON'T READ COMICS
I think it's comic readers lashing out in response to there being so many goddamn movie threads, if somebody doesn't read every current comic then clearly they're a filthy casual who's only there to shitpost
The Jim Henson books are awesome, I'm still reading Dark Crystal and it's great. In The Labyrinth they expanded on a ton of stuff, like there's a whole chapter of Sarah looking for the castle with The Fireys. And in the back there are copies of Jim's idea book of everything he was thinking of putting in. The Dark Crystal has Brian Froud's sketches of the Skeksis that look really cool.
You're pretty much right, but it's totally out of hand. Sometimes people miss details when they read, and some of the stuff people talk about came out years ago. It's nonsense then, but it's twice as ridiculous when you're literally using the fact that somebody has a large collection of comics as proof that they don't read comics. Like, how do you even get that twisted logic?
>flash (geoff johns) omnibus vol 1
>punisher omnibus (remender)
>tomb of dracula omnibus vol 3
>infinity gauntlet omnibus
All of these are excellent. The Remender Punisher omni includes Franken-Castle, right?
I need to get the last Tomb Of Dracula omni myself.
Flash & Green Lantern is a really fun book. I hope you enjoy it.
And regardless of what >>64599363 says, Morrison's B&R and Johns' GL are good reads too.
I really want to pick up some Perez Wonder Woman for my wife. She's been wanting to read some of the older stuff, but all we've managed to find so far are the trades for Straczynski's run, the first volume of Rucka's, the second volume of Diana Prince: Wonder Woman, and JLA: A League Of One.
>Flash & Green Lantern is a really fun book
I've read it half a dozen times, but I didn't realize it had a trade so while I was GL binging I bought it. I love it
Librarians have convinced people that physical paper literature is "superior" because you can feel/smell it.
That said, you're right, and it's a huge unnecessary waste of tree pulp.
What is it with people sperging out showing the same comic collections over and over in and out day by day?
You've obviously incited this reaction yourselves by consistently trying to show off
Yeah. Good times. I considered getting Mark Waid to sign my copy back in April, but opted to have him sign my oversized hardcover of Daredevil instead. He complimented my Metal Men shirt with Mercury's emblem on it when I met him.
I don't think the guys here at /co/ are as bad as the guys at CBR, who buy EVERYTHING, and then end up having homogenized collections.
I have maybe 100 or so trades, don't really need much more. What makes it cool is that I don't feel the need to have everything, and everything on my shelf I can think of something special to say about it.
>my hobby is spending money
Do you autists at least climate control your library-sized collections to prevent them from rotting/moisture damage/fading/color runs?
Or do you just buy shit and throw it on a cheap shelf and let it sit and rot there?
Depends. I don't buy that regularly, but every now and then I'll go on IST and blow through $60 or so. I don't do it very often. A couple of times a year usually.
Although, I've done it twice in the last two months.
yes, i know there's alot of Bendis (please stop reminding me) also superman redson is hidden
I met him the year before as well and had him sign my Absolute Kingdom Come. It was at a local college and he was actually wandering the dealer room with several people following him around, but when he saw me at his empty booth, he excused himself from the crowd and came to chat with me for a bit while signing my book. He was overly cautious about signing it too, claiming he didn't want to ruin such an awesome (and expensive) copy of his book.
I didn't have the heart to tell him that I actually got it from a friend for about $15 after he scuffed the bottom of the spine and didn't want it anymore.
same autism that drove people to spend thousands of dollars on fucking DVDs, that are now worthless...
its funny because most people here buy new comics, but within 1-2 years they will already lose half their value (as all comics do)
so these collectors (who dont even invest in worthwhile/timeless editions) are just throwing away money
Perhaps they buy it because--now bear with me for a sec, I know this is crazy--they like it and not because they think they can sell it for more money in a few years? who the fuck buys trades to make money off of them?
Do you seriously only spend money on absolute necessities?
Same autism as Pokemon
>We print out paper with fahnny cartoons on it, and sperglords will pay $80 DOLLARS for it
>kek kek kek
Why not upgrade them to DVDs, or better yet, just get a digital collection?
I can see some excuse for paper comic collections, if people want to smell them or whatever, but there's literally 0 reason to own a physical movie collection anymore.
Yeah. He got it during a local shop's storewide 75% off anniversary sale, read it, was carrying it to our friend's apartment and dropped it in the parking lot, then almost immediately told me he'd sell it to me because it was damaged.
Look bro, I could see owning like 10-20 of your favorite all-time comics, and a couple toys/posters.
but regularly dishing out 100s of dollars on editions just for the sake of hoarding is some kinda autism.
At some point you will collect enough reading material that you will NEVER be able to re-read it all (if you are working as you claim) so whats the point?
>0 reason to own a physical movie collection anymore.
I don't pirate because I'm on a college campus' connection. Stuff like Kaiju movies or old Brian De Palma films aren't readily available on streaming sites. I like having physical copies of my favorite films available.
>Look bro, I could see owning like 10-20 of your favorite all-time comics, and a couple toys/posters.
>but regularly dishing out 100s of dollars on editions just for the sake of hoarding is some kinda autism.
Why, though? What's the difference? Why is owning 20 books acceptable but owning 100 is mental illness?
>Do you seriously only spend money on absolute necessities?
Mostly, yeah. There's always ways to better your situation, I don't think anybody on /co/ is such a millionaire that they can flagrantly throw away all this money on fucking comics.
It's a cool hobby, but at the end of the day it's unhealthy, expensive hoarding.
If you want a buddy to go outside and do things with, let someone know.
>I really want to pick up some Perez Wonder Woman for my wife
Good luck. Amazon has them listed at crazy prices, and Ebay's inconsistent. I got lucky and got them both in a lot pretty close to cover price while I was looking for Azz Vol 1, so there's hope.
You'll probably have to go digital at some point, though. There are only four trades printed, collecting 24 issues of a five and a half year run. But yeah, WW trades are tricky to come by sometimes. A League of One is a pretty good find, though. The art is gorgeous.
if you earn good money like me, you can spend all the cash you want on comics, wife, sons, car and other stuff. Besides, tecnically you don't own a shit when you "buy" online, or when you pirate comics.
>just for the sake of hoarding
It's for the sake of reading, idiot. And after I read them, I have no real reason to get rid of them unless I didn't like them. I'm not hurting for money or storage space, so getting rid of them serves no purpose. I can always go back to them if I like them or lend them out to friends or whatever.
>I don't think anybody on /co/ is such a millionaire that they can flagrantly throw away all this money on fucking comics.
Do you seriously thing spending a hundred bucks a month on books is some kind of ridiculously extravagant spending? I pay my bills, buy necessities, put some money in savings and investments, and then I have leftover that I can put towards entertainment and hobbies, it's not like I'm starving myself and letting the electricity go out so I can buy comics
>and are just owning them for hoard-reasons
what does this even mean? you think people are buying books and not reading them because ___?

except legally you own a dvd and have legal protection from it being taken from you. with digital they can take it from you at any time without having to give your money back and if the service ends/closes your shit out of luck.
I'm trying to get a copy of every comic Morrison and Moore ever wrote. Then I'll arrange them in concentric counter-circles with a stack of Niel Gaiman's Sandman in the center and invoke the name of mighty Dormammu whaile accessing my Kermit chakra to fix the hole in the center of the universe.
>called IST, asked for manager
They run out of DCBS, so that doesn't make any-sense. I'll trust the guy who's losing his job. Besides, look at CBR forums, those guys look like they spend $200+
>if you buy comics, you are autistic and don't read them
wow, /co/ has changed. I don't remember summer ever being this bad.
Anyway I just bought/ordered the following this week: Absolute All-Star Superman, Final Crisis, and Batman & Robin; 52 vol. 1, and Seven Soldiers vol. 1.
it's kind of silly. i personally buy comics because i love the feel of them in my hands as i read them, and i'm more likely to reread them if i have a physical copy
also i'm >>64628502 >>64628730, and a lot of the books that i do have, i've met the creators in person - deforge, beaton, brown, santoro, kc green, north, alabaster, etc. i've met in person. i like to support the artists
Before I had bought it, I had previously read the first 16 issues. But man that book is good. More complicated than anything else I've ever read, and much more of a trip. Despite that, it is not incomprehensible, as a lot of people say (unless you're not willing to reflect on it). I couldn't bring myself to read any other comics for 2 months, because it was such a high standard for me. It's about everything, and the attention to detail is staggering.
Having it all in one volume also helps to better understand the time-travel related bits.

I'd say more than half my collection is just Moore, Morrison, and Dave Sim (I bought Judenhass as well as Cerebus).
it was alright. kind of slow at times, but the ending is absolutely heartwrenching. if you can find it for cheap like that copy of louis riel, go for it
he seems to have had a fairly normal childhood for someone who later went on to write things like paying for it and ed the happy clown
speaking of which, if you're into REALLY weird comics, check out ed the happy clown
It's been a while since I read it, but I remember it had an intro by Gerard Way, a few essays by Morrison that were in original issues/trades, and the normal omni fare (sketches, designs, covers)
First comics I ever bought, actually. Even four years ago it was impossible to find volume two, but I lucked out at my local B&N.
Absolutely terrific, but it's probably far cheaper for you just to buy the individual issues. My favorites were Paul Pope, Richard Corben, Teddy Kristiansen, Damian Scott, Sergio Aragones, and Brendan McCarthy.
But I suppose it must be worth the buy if half the volume can be described as favorite.
A lot of good issues in that book. I never read it, but I got it as partial payment for a commission and don't regret it at all. Some really great pieces throughout the book. Some great art, too.
Wish DC would revive the idea seeing how many people seem to have it and give some artists that outlet again. Some real interesting work came from it.
Most of it, will be able to update these pictures soon.
Yes it includes Franken-Castle, so funny you mention that as I pulled that omnibus off the shelf earlier today just to read that! Fell asleep super early due to drinking too much so now I'm about to start reading some more invincible on my tablet! Man I'm loving invincible.
Nice to see someone else with love for Tomb of Dracula.. man it's great fucking stuff... Are the first 2 omnis in color? I don't think I could ever get rid of the first three trades as they are in color. Black and white is so nice as well though...
I own both. Have since sold bother simply becuase I'd rather make room for something else (I think I'm going to end up getting Invincible hardcovers...)
They are both extremely good but I'd give the edge to conan..
So many things I want to buy right now it's crazy
Guardians of the galaxy complete collection
manhattan projects vol 4
Doom Patrol Omnibus
Invincible compendiums or hardcovers
Must. Fight. Urge.
They are less comfortable to read but sometimes it's the easiest way to collect or cheapest way. A lot of times for omnibuses I will read them at my desk sitting in a chair and let the omnibus sit on the desk in front of me. This way comfortability isn't an issue.
I read comics on my tablet in my family room in a recliner. I read comics in my office in my recliner with the lights on.
Depending on what I'm reading, depends on where I read it. Kind of weird but some things are more comfortably read in certain conditions/places.
Very true my problem is my prescription + my height means sitting in a chair and reading requires my glasses and for whatever reason I prefer reading without them.
i have no idea whats going on with my eyes the past 7 years but dry eye, constant irritation, eye goop in morning or day, constant feeling of shit in my eyes. it's fucking miserable. not to mention fucking with my eyes for years is now destroying my vision..
i really just need to go to an eye doctor it's ridiculous at this point.
hmm that's a nice little deal too. some chipping at top and im sure it's got a bunch of other stuff wrong with it but the colors are nice and bright!
thats the has been superman right?
Silver Surfer: Requiem hardcover
It Hurts! Vol. 1.
