One thing binds all comic fans together: We’ve all bought comics we regret:
“So, last year I began this quest to get all the Doom Patrol, JLA, JSA, TT and LSH trades for my own personal library. Well, for the most part, I accomplished this task. There was always one book out there that eluded me … the long out of print second volume of the Giffen/DeMatteis JLI series (The Secret Gospel of Maxwell Lord) … well, I found a copy on Amazon that a private owner was selling and paid $40 for it. I don’t know, for some reason I have the buyers remorse now. I don’t know if it is because I spent $40 plus shipping for a comic or that my quest is officially over. Has anyone else ever experienced this?”
“I did when i bought Lost Girls, i only paid like $45 for the thing, but when i read it i was like…”ok, well this will sit on a shelf for a while”…and it has”
“I think about the $100 I plunked down for the Crisis hardcover back in 1998, there’ll never be another one…yeah sure…my wife laughs at me even today…’this…$100…this one…$100′….bwaaahhaaahaa..pisses me off to no end…”
“In the last year I spent over 2 grand on tpb’s…not counting monthlies. Now I look and say what the heck did I do??…lol”
Where do these people get such disposible income? Why am I not as rich as these people? Wh… why…?
The world’s so unfair.
