I remember being twelve and thinking Tropical Punch was the best thing I would ever taste too. Now, I can't stand the taste.

By calling it great and not being pissed about it, you are telling Marvel that it is okay. That means it will happen again and again. Kind of like the events that everyone is tired of, but pays for anyhow.

:keeping in mind that I actually haven't read this issue yet:

Logan's character arc may have reached it's climax with the SNIKT moment in the last issue, but that wasn't the resolution of the plot.

To be fair, I got the issue at a discount, it was £2.55 which works out to $4, so for me it wasn't overpriced.

true, but what is here is not the kind of resolution worthy of the SNIKT... SNIKT was a ten, this was a 5.

And how much did the other issues cost you?

This one cost you more and for less than was delivered in previous issues.

£1.80 at first and then the price went up to £2.10.

It wasn't that much more, and this issue does have more pages.

NOT STORY!!!! Fucking pictures of the covers which I can get by going to comicbookdb.com! There was nothing of any use in the spectacular filler in the back. So you are okay with Marvel making the equvilent of another buck off you for absolutely nothing? And here in the states it is two dollars more, which even at 50% off equates to another dollar.

If this book had come out two months ago, I could have sold twice as many, if this book had cost a dollar less, I could have sold twice as many. It's not worth the price or the wait.

Becoming Marvel's online defender of pricing is the weirdest internet performance art you have ever partaken in. I salute your Nolanesque commitment to this endeavor.

ComicVine.com >>> comicbookdb.com

db's search is broken half the time and Comic Vine has more consistent/higher quality images.

Yeah, but he was part of the 10 you consider the previous issue to be. It's not like SNIKT would have been a 10 with Billy Tan art.
