I’ve had my heart broken enough times to know that there are
certain types of people you are better off staying away from. Drug addicts,

news stuffed in a soggy box. Not to say I actually shy away from these types.
Because I’m an idiot, or maybe have self-esteem...
... you discover a new comic shop near you that specializes in back issues.
... you come home with a stack of comics and need to reorganize your binders (again).

hopeless about it. So, as they...
