  1. Avengers #57! Nice! One of the books I still need to get but ever time I am about to pull the trigger something else gets in the way.

    1. There should be no actual popups. If there are, please let us know. You may see the side or bottom ads pop up that stick while you scroll that are part of the page but nothing that pops up. We tell our advertiser that’s a no no cause we hate them as well.

    1. Dude. My toy wall is awesome. It’s in a state of flux right now because I got in more toys and need to make space. I have had the green screen wall for a while. Use it for my sons school reports, we do them as videos as his teacher is a youtuber (pretty big teacher’s blogger) and she really likes when he does the videos.

      1. You should add a background that makes it look like you own action comics #1, detective comics 27, amazing fantasy 15 and other grails all in 9.8 Condition!

        Might lose some credibility though…

        1. I finally mastered green screen and how to even it out. My early attempts were never good. This one is pretty seemless, minus the green in the comics of toys going clear.

  2. For many websites use google chrome web browser then download Adblock. That should prevent the pop ups or those ads on the right and left hand pane of the browser.

    1. But you support the site by displaying ads and not using an ad blocker. We offer everything on CHU for free. The information is free, the access is free. This prevents the site from turning into a patreon or pay for site. You all want to pay for access? We can change the model if you all would like.

      Telling people to just block ads that help pay for this site, the hosting and the work that goes into it is just a bummer. 🙁

      1. Trust me, I hate having to display ads. But the cost of running the site has become pretty massive. Not to mention the forum. It’s a necessary evil. We are not getting rich off the ads. We break even or close to even every month, and the pst couple of months due to reduced traffic from no spoilers or new comics, we have been in the red. The ads are a necessary evil.

          1. I live in the Baltimore area, right between DC and Baltimore. It’s very expensive area to live but we sacrificed nice cars for a good home in a safe area. It’s a trade off. One of my son’s friends asked him what kind of car his dad drove, the kid says his dad drove a BMW. My son asked me, dad, do you drive a BMW? I said why and he told me about his friend. I said tell him you don’t know about cars but your dads cars name also has three letters.

            1. Even if I was rich, I wouldn’t buy a luxury vehicle. For most, it’s about presentation and looks. I don’t care. All I care about is getting from point A to B with running A/C cause central Texas gets hot.

              Unless you’re buying a classic car, cars are horrible investments. I just need reliable when it comes to my car. I don’t need my car telling others I have a crap ton of money to spend on my car when driving around. But like comics, buy what you like.

            2. Ugh….I ran into kids like that when I moved from NJ to CA all those years ago. When my kid gets older he and I are going to have a very long talk if he is overly concerned about what kind of car someone’s dad drives.

              1. Things you don’t hear at someone’s funeral.. “You know, Joe drove a really nice car.”

                Your brand of car or expensive clothes don’t define you. You define you. That’s what I teach my own kids. If you drive a BMW and the other guy drives a Hyundai, that doesn’t make you a better person or more important just because your car cost more than the other.

                1. Where I live someone is always trying to move back to the mainland and sell their car. I just go on Craigslist and offer half what their asking on every BMX, Lexus, Mercedes, Chrysler, Cadillac eventually someone bites. Both our cars bought this way.

                2. I can’t imagine how much it would cost to ship your car back to the mainland. Selling at a bargain price is still likely saving them money.

      1. It was a kick starter. That is correct. I think the kick starter had a limited window for orders if you didn’t find the book. But that may be closed now. The Peach Momoko cover is selling for $50 currently.

    1. This cover makes me wanna slap my mama. 😍

      For those unfamiliar with the game, this will be a continuation of the story where the game left off.

    2. No need to order that from an online retailer. I believe that Momoko book should be available to order at your LCS.
