I’m going to get back to blogging. I buy a shitload of stuff on my iPad. Not that I like spending money, and the exchange rate terrifies me, but it’s just so easy, and so good. For example, I’ve been reading comics again. Spiderman, and Carnage. Except this time Spiderman is friends with Iron Man, and Carnage has boobs. Amazing. I’ve realized, however, that Marvel never ends stories. They are all cliff-hangers. Sequels are the business model. They’re such
assholes money machines.
Comic Books are great, I used to spend my petty cash on them and CDs. And baseball cards. We’d ride out bike down to the strip malls and buy toys for boys. You used to be able to get the old comics or reprints for cheap. So I read the first Spiderman, and some 1970s era Spiderman which had some amazing pants, and the stuff from the 80s, which had amazing hair. This was the Todd McFarlane era, before he created Spawn. That shit was fun, but I kinda grew up.
Ant Man and the Wasp named the Avengers, then disappeared. Perhaps got stepped on, or misfiled.
I was reading the first Avengers comic (which is free on the Marvel app). You know who’s not in the movie? Ant Man. And Wasp Women. Because they’re … I was going to say they’re retarded, but they actually did a lot of the work in the comic book. Oh, and Iron Man is an actual man covered in cylinders. He looks like The Thing in geometric brass.
It’s silly that old businesses can’t make money online. They just have to make awesome stuff, and make it easy to get. Marvel is an old business, and they’re printing money on all fronts. Avengers the movie just made the most money ever. Plus I just read like five Spiderman comics ($1.99 each, which is like Rs. 255) and THEY STILL HAVEN’T CAUGHT CARNAGE. Assholes.
I’ve been using the Marvel comics app for the iPad. It’s pretty good, if expensive. Loads beautiful comic pages fast, lets you zoom panel by panel, pretty sex. Thing is, I can read a single comic in like 15 minutes. An issue costs $1.99, a series is about $8.99. Also, NONE OF THEM EVER END. So can get addictive, if you like comics.
