Aw, man! Well, at least it isn't DC I guess.

And I am going to sell this issue when the death Bagleys come out, duh!

I already fucked up and bought the Manara GN, that came out of the Comics For PS3 Fund. I'm thinking of adding that to all my listings, once I have sold enough comics on eBay to buy a PS3 and a couple games it's so long, suckers! If only I had done this before the FF bonanza I'd be gone already.

Hopefully your nephew will bid since his Uncle is too lazy to go to a store and buy him a comic book.

The world's greatest uncle will buy the fucking book hopefully Friday, but certainly by Tuesday.

The world's greatest uncle hopes to have his soul-crushing paper done by Sunday evening, when he can finally unwind with beer.

And it ain't my fault that there wasn't much to choose from this week.


He was the first to commit the ultimate douchebag crime of not reviewing his own pick.

Week 31, Thunderbolts #106, terrible fucking comic.

That's not until the death bagley packaged USM #160. You fail at speculation preparation!

That's just one of many reasons you should be banned from making picks.

Well that was a nice inconsequential piece of fluff. Well written and I liked the flow of the double page story telling but Chris Samnee does is not the right artist for this book.

Ultimate Spider-Man #155

That was an issue of nothing but moving characters into position for plots to come. Nothing particularly amusing or exciting and the art was solid without standing out. Coming off the back of Rios, Lafuente and the #150 dream team merely 'good enough' just isn't good enough.

Nothing wrong with the comic, but there wasn't much to recommend it either.

Comic Book Comics: The Lawsuit Issue had more action than UCUSM.

Cause Jack Kirby had fiery fists of fury or whatever Charlie Sheen says he has.

Even the implied loss of Peter's virginity happened off-panel.
