Today I swung by my local comic shop to pick up the copy of Asterios Polyp I had ordered. As usual, the guy behind the counter tried to push the new releases on me (when did independent stores start modeling themselves after Gamestop?). I had no intention of buying the first issue of Blackest Night because I’m so far behind in the ramp up, but then the clerk dropped the bomb: you get a free Black Lantern ring with purchase.
What is wrong with my brain that I thought I needed this? Or, more importantly, why do I think this is awesome?
On the plus side, I never have to worry about girls liking me ever again.
