Pfft! You robbed me and 1 other fan of the chance to read this without paying through the nose.

It should be a rule that you can't buy more than one copy of a book. If I ran a comic store, I'd implement that policy, probably only for important ones like this though.

My LCS sort of instituted this rule for 27. Someone tried to buy all the copies in the store and the manager said no.

I did only buy one. From each shop. Anyway you've said it yourself, you'll just grab a second printing. or read a trade. Or crime it from the internet. In this day and age availability of a Marvel comic is not a problem.

But I want a Death Bag! :cry:

It's my own fault for not going on Tuesday I suppose, but the train fare costs the same as a comic these days, and it wasn't worth it. I'm not even that annoyed, but it's lame when some speculator has a copy and someone who's been reading FF for 3 years doesn't.

If it's any consolation, Punch, I ordered your copy of Batwoman today.

FF# 587 by Hickman & Epting

What a pointless waste of 27 pages. There is not one moment in this entire comic worth reading again or even going over. I honestly don't even want to mention anything more in this review because it's wasting time when there are better books that one can read.

Writing 0
Art 7 (Epting is the only good thing in this book)
Final score 3.5

On a related note, Sean McKeever just accused me of running the Review Group as a front for the MGS.

McKeever and I have this running gag about me putting all the comics he's signed for me over the years on eBay.

I got on my LCS's facebook page and told them to put a copy aside for me since we were reviewing the book this week (they all know about the Review Group). McKeever immediately comments and asks if the Review Group is what I call ebay nowadays. If only he knew how close he was to the truth...
