    Never fear, if the UU has taught us anything it's that for everyone we lose we eventually get a replacement. I anticipate a Wyoman or some other variation to join the forms and disagree with popular opinion soon enough

    Also, congrats Obama! May you smite Texans like the ants they are beneath your mighty foot of political power!

    The problem with DCBS is the shipping. $6.95 flat rate sucks. Since I'm an orthodox nerd, I prefer to get my comics each week. But I only get ~10 books a month, so some weeks only have one or two books, so the shipping immediately cancels out any discount. The prudent part of me would see the obvious solution of just shipping once monthly. But even still, that 7 bucks takes a big hit into the discount at that volume. Assuming I get 10 $4 books per month (which I don't think is right, but it'll work for this math problem):

    Cover price: $40
    DCBS price (-40%): $24
    DCBS price, with sipping: $31

    My LCS has a flat 25% discount for subscribers, meaning:

    Cover price: $40
    LCS price (-25%): $30

    So is the $1 savings worth having to wait an entire month for all my new comics? Nope. Sure, there's gas costs, but those are minimal and I try to plan my trip out there around other times when I'm in the neighborhood (or better yet, when work sends me over there, so my gas is paid for!!).

    The option I'm still considering is direct subscriptions from Marvel. They're 40% with no shipping costs. The big downside there is a 6-week waiting period.

    -----

    And I suppose this conversation has given me yet another reason to post my pull list (as of Marvel NOW):

    Avengers
    New Avengers
    Manhattan Projects
    WatXM
    USM
    UXM
    Ultimates
    Captain America
    X-Factor
    Walking Dead (trades)
    Morning Glor (trades)
    Chew (trades)

    ...I think that's it.

    So at only 9 titles, my LCS is actually flat out cheaper than DCBS. Also, I only buy Cap and X-Factor a few times a year, when I'm back in Dallas, to continue supporting my old LCS, so I wouldn't change those titles anyway. I'm also still debating switching to trades for the Ultimate books.

    So if I do that, I may actually pick up some new books through Marvel, but I'm not sure which ones. Part of me still wants to try out Fraction's FF/F4, but I'm really not looking forward to Bagley, and the new status quo seems like a big step down. I'll more than likely pick it up later when I can get it for a buck an issue; I'm the same way about All New X-Men. Maybe Uncanny Avengers, but I already get two other Avengers books. There's just not a whole lot that really interests me right now, but I want it to. Maybe some new Image books or something.
    Well I did that big discount where I get all the Marvel Now titles, so...

    Tears will be shed for your absence. Well, not real tears, but the metaphorical internet kind of tears. But I assure you, they are just as real. Your return will be anticipated.

    Also, I swear on all that is holy*, if you come back and haven't finished Hickman's FF yet - I will kill you. Also, Manhattan Projects.

    (Ironically, "all that is holy" refers to the forthcoming Hickman FF Omnibus)
    He's taking a break? Perfect time to make my return I'm kidding, of course.
    Thank god comic fans are such a tiny little percentage of the audience needed for a successful film because apparently we not only hate fucking everything, we're willing to even pre-hate things...

    Man, all this time I've been gone and only Robbie had the good sense to know my man Barack Obama would win. I've been telling people at work all week ... well last week now ... that it's very clear Obama would win the electoral college. EASILY!

    Although, Robbie you're logic of him winning a second term just because he was incumbent is a little off. Generally, incumbents do win but they usually win when the majority of people are happy. People in America are not happy. But even I was a bit nervous, it's one thing to see a simple poll. It's quite another to see the results.

    Semesters almost over, an election won for another four years.

    So Hows everyone?

    BTW, thanks for that post Robbie. Awww shucks! You make me blush.

    No you dont, I mean we are Crazy Canucks what else could you mean?. What I am always amazed at is you even know of Canada in Texes.

    Anyone else here plan to see the new James Bond movie? It's been a while since I've really enjoyed a James Bond movie, but I've heard a lot of great things about Skyfall. It's supposed to have all those elements that make James Bond awesome. It sounds so promising, but I've been disappointed before. Hope that's not the case this time.

    Welcome back, Jer! I'm so glad the semester's nearly over. Only a few more weeks of this insane schedule. Do you have any crazy students giving you troubles?

    Hopefully I'm seeing it tonight or tomorrow. I really want to see it. I've heard nothing but good things.

    So Wyokid's leaving just as the old gang's back together?

    Nah, he'll be back in a couple weeks. It doesn't really take up much of one's time being on here, especially when you have Internet access on your phone.

    But then again, some people struggle to spare even half an hour of their day, due to work, family, freinds, kids, etc..

    @Jer - Nice to see you back, Jer.
    Obviously it isn't entirely accurate, but that's why I check the level of apportionment on re-election years. That always seems to determine the outcome of re-elections. The level of apportionment applied in American politics is simply ridiculous. I don't know why you don't all just rise up and stop it from happening. I've tried finding out why the US apply it so vigorously but the only explanation Wikipedia gives me is that it's due to the government not fully trusting the decisions of the people. I can't find any other explanation as to why it happens.

    Also, though it may not determine much, I just want to point out that it's only the first year elections that get any kind of international promotion, at all. Seriously, no one I knew (in the UK) had any idea about the election, and yet when it's a first term election, we're completely barraged with information about it. Just an observation, that's all. But I wouldn't have even heard about the election if I hadn't come on this website, whereas whenever a President really is going to be changed, the radio won't stop going on about it. This may not be an accurate evaluation of such tings, but as an observation, it stands out clear as day to the point where it simply cannot be a coincidence, and from past experience, it has always been rather easy to tell who's going to win. I remember when Al Gore went up against Bush. After hearing about the level of apportionment on the radio, there was clearly no way Al Gore could have won, even though everyone hates Bush for the fucking warlord that he is. Sorry, got a bit emotional there. Everyone seemed to want Al Gore to win, even though it clearly wasn't going to happen. :(

    Apportionment is a hot topic in UK politiics, as I'm sure it is also in America. But what annoys me is how the entire world just accepts it. It's almost like they're ignoring logical cogitations in their mind because their 'faith' is so strong.

    I'm not complaining or anything. Well.. I am.. now that I'm discussing it..

    Did you not like the other Craig films? Casino Royale was great (despite a poker scene that lasted far too long) and Quantum of Solace had some seriously fantastic, never ending action, though the story suffered for it. I was supposed to see it at midnight on Wednesday, but my friend got too drunk before he went, so he forgot to call me. Hopefully I'll see it this weekend.

    Anyone else playing Halo 4? It's kind of my life right now. ODST and Reach were nice, but this is the game I've been waiting five years for. It hasn't disappointed yet; hopefully I'll finish the campaign tonight.
    I like Ultimate Comics. - Read them with us!

    I also buy: Captain America, Avengers, FF, New Avengers, X-Factor, among others
