It’s that time again, where I tell you what’s really grinding my gears for the week of April 17th, 2019.
Some weeks it’s mostly likes, other weeks it’s dislikes.
So what’s grinding my gears this week?
Taxes. Not paying them, just doing them. They’re so mind numbing. Anyways, on with the actual likes and dislikes for the week.
Star Wars IX
I don’t care if some of you all are hating on the new Star Wars film. I love Star Wars and I can’t wait for this next installment.
The new trailer has me pumped for this movie. Maybe it’s because I also have a slight crush on Daisy Ridley.
Watch the trailer again:
Say It Ain’t So FX!
Supposedly there are rumors that Y: The Last Man is being canceled by FX, after it was recently opted for a 10 episode order by FX.
This news, if true, just sucks.
The show has gone through so many roller coaster rides of options, media deals, promises and then falls flat.
I haven’t seen or read official word from FX that the series has been canceled, we can only hope it’s not true.
If these rumors are true, it’s still a great comic and a great read. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it.
The entire Eisner Award-winning 60-issue run of Y: THE LAST MAN is collected in a single omnibus edition! This is the saga of Yorick Brown, the only survivor of a plague that kills every mammal with a Y chromosome. Accompanied by his pet monkey, Ampersand, a mysterious government agent and a brilliant young geneticist, Yorick travels the world in search of his lost love and the answer to why he’s the last man on earth.
Retailers Playing the Secondary Market Game
I love seeing retailers fail when they try to sell books at secondary market type prices.
Midtown originally set their Immortal Hulk #16 ratio variant at $125 to start off with and then they jacked it up to $150.
Well, you can still find these in stock at Midtown. I hope Midtown gets stuck with these for a very long time. They should have stuck to their normal ratio price settings and leave the secondary market to those who have to buy a retailer prices.
I just hope no one fell victim to their jacked up price for this ratio variant.
That’s all I got this week. What are you all liking, disliking this week? What’s grinding your gears?
