that Amazon.com thing

OK, I swore to myself I wouldn’t talk about it because obviously I’m in the minority in thinking that Amazon.com fiasco, because certain British online “journalists” are clearly fanning the flames by siding with entitled fans.  However, once again CBR’s Robot 6 delivers the goods.

Two mentions of the whole situation that break it down;

Comics Alliance has the sad truth

Comics 212 has the ugly truth

And you know what?  They’re right.  It’s sort of shitty that a lot of people are not able to get the books they ordered or are not being informed that these orders are being cancelled outright or only partially honored.

You know what else is shitty?  Taking advantage of what’s clearly a mistake on the vendor’s part so you can oh, I don’t know, buy 100 copies of a book so you can resell them later online for a profit.

Suck it up, buttercups.  There’s a reason books like omnibi are so expensive, they cost money to make.  Money that’s made up by pricing a clearly-luxury item in a higher price bracket. Money that goes towards paying the people that make comics for you.

OK, there, now I’m done.
