SECRET EMPIRE Triple Ships in May!

It triple ships! That means three issues in one month.  A full third of the nine issue event out in one month.  On top of that, with issues #1 and #2 at $4.99 and #3 at $3.99, all of this will run $14.

Fourteen dollars for three comics! IN ONE MONTH! FOR 3 COMICS!

Reader: But, RU, it's a five week month!


Reader: Page count.


Add the 10 SECRET EMPIRE TIE-INS - coming in at $3.99 an issue - Marvel is banking on you spending $54 in May just on SECRET EMPIRE books alone because, as they see it, over-priced continual events are what will save the industry.

Fuck this shit.

I'd ask how we got here, but we all already know.

I'm not paying for any SECRET EMPIRE book. I'll just wait for CBR, Newsarama, or Dan Slott to let slip an approved spoiler for whatever completely temporary Marvel Universe core shaking retcon bullshit they try to force feed us as we all wait for the inevitable return to entropy and The Incredible Hulk...probably sometime around November 3rd.

About the Author - GHERU

RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
