Re: Amazing Spiderman #700

Comics lost all value for me with the invention of essential collections.

I mean, 400 dollars to buy the first 30 Wolverines, or $29.95 for an essential edition.

Actual honest real Scarcity was now an illusion.

I never got essential Wolverine even though I sold all my Wolverines because I knew that I could always and forever buy essential Wolverine whenever I wanted to.

Now?

Now I could download every Wolverine ever made in about 5 minutes for free.

But I don't.

Because Wolverine is a sad comic.
