Sorry not buying it
heck, they may be getting tax credits for doing this. I recall an article about a decade ago describing how broadcasters were getting tax credits for putting social-behavior messages (mainly anti-drug i think) into their content.
Marvel comic books jumped the shark in the early 90’s. The number of issues they sold peaked in the mid 80’s. If it wasn’t for their film franchises which mostly work off their pre-collapse story lines, they would already be out of business. Part of the reason for their collapse is they no longer can keep any consistency in their characters and suffer from attention deficit disorder. The current crop of creative talent is also adamantly left-leaning and enamored by group think in the entertainment business.
***I would boycott but I must have my Spidey and Deadpool...***
I’ll just stick with my 50 year old CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED, COMBAT and BORIS KARLOFF’S THRILLER.
Except for the sorry part LOL...
No more links...Interesting
Of course I spent a couple hundred euros on other comics. This is how I get into bad trouble with my wife. Goodbye cruel world!
(but i got this! #1-41 )
>> I would boycott but I must have my Spidey and Deadpool... <<
Buy used comics then instead so the profits go down for marvell, or use a greyer market....
So I suppose we need to decide if it was an honest mistake, or if they were another liberal group who were clueless to the massive number of paying customers who are part of the Tea Party movement.
Any ideas on how to find an answer?
44You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
I am usually a huge Marvel fan. I was a G.I. Joe fan in the 80’s. The lefties would probably hate this, G.I. Joe and DC’s G.I. Combat (the Haunted Tank) solidified my desire to join the Army.
I don’t want to be critical; however, they have gone so far the left in recent years that I don’t use any of my $100,000.00 income to buy comics anymore, and that actually makes me as unhappy as their accountants must be. I am sure I am not the only adauld kid that would love to read a comic but don’t want to be preached at.
Last night on the Fox Network (not Fox News) after AmIdol there was a show about past lives. A murder perp was described as “white” and “angry,” to which one of the “investigators” quipped “we suspect he’s Republican.”
I switched the channel and guess won’t visit it again, except for ‘24,’ which has declined in quality lately anyway. Maybe just give up tv.
We did get one day of school in so far this week. I very much doubt that we have school tomorrow. The wind is beginning to kick up now although the snow seems to be letting up some.
Forget about that snow letting up. It is now coming down harder than all day.
Our snow pretty much stopped around 2p, but we’re still under warning because of the winds. This am it was total blizzard, with heavy snow, whiteout, blowing in every direction. So far so good on power, thank GOD.
One of our local school districts on Monday decided they wouldn’t even bother trying to open this week. Others took it a day or two at a time .. bottom line, none will be back till next Tuesday! And, they were closed the entire week before Christmas. We don’t “do” snow well in VA.
Probably the feds will open with liberal leave in effect on Friday so they ‘look good.’ And THEN have a 3 day weekend!
I really like your response. Lying is a Democrats (Obuma) native language. Perfect.
It just proves that reading comics does not harm the mind . You and I both turned out well even with a strong diet of comic books. My mother wailed about my reading habits but what she overlooked was that “I was reading”.
