Re: Marvel's Ultimate Comics

Someone wants our money.

But they're pussies about getting it.

How are the people selling you eggs any different form the people selling you beer?

And we're not just talking about mom and pop store fronts.

There are factories and marketing and an industry with millions of drones ensuring that billions of quatloos are changing hands to make sure that you desire some beer battered French toast in the morning and nothing gets in the way of that desire.

But are they happy?

You should buy more eggs.

You need to buy more beer.

That might make them happy?

They are going to trick you into doing so, so that more money can roll around in circles.

We live in a machine.

Comics are no different, save only a minute economy of scale by comparison.

I'm just waiting for likable comics.
