Don't Believe The Hype, Part Whatever

Last night we "ordered" a few of these free comics, giving up our name & an e-mail address in the process. And since we placed the order (a process that itself was long, slow & painful; the Marvel site moved at the speed of molasses) we haven't been able to get the Marvel site to work & grant us access to our freebies. (Their site must be accessed: When you're told you're "downloading" something they mean it will be made available to you on their fucking site, in a "personal" My Comics area, as opposed to the generally accepted concept that downloading something means you will have all the bits & bytes comprising the damn thing sent to & remaining inside your devil-box.)

Good fucking job, Disney & Marvel. Way to be prepared for an increase in traffic, incompetent fucking corporate drones.

No idle threats, even though Disney/Marvel wasted our precious time! Just a mention that we know where they work (Burbank) & we hope they haven't been saving money by cutting back on the studio fire department. DIAF, bay-bee!!

Wow, that website is seriously bad.

I guess I'll have to console myself by digging out my original not-perfect-but-still-damn-good original copy of Iron Man #1. I shall read it again and perhaps even wrinkle a page or two and maybe even subtly crease a page. The screams of true comic nerds nourish my soul. Well they would if I wasn't a soulless ginger.

Rocket-Propelled Editor:
It's working now that the freebie are over. Still, what did they expect, esp. when a comic book is now $3.99 for 23 pp.?

Less content yet considerably (40x!) more than the dime we paid for Daredevil #1. Which our parents threw away.

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
