Easier To Hide The Geek From The Ladies

Marvel is releasing 44 years of Fantastic Four comics, from 1961 through 2004, all on one DVD and for around $50. It's an awesome way to have all those stories at your fingertips without the boxes and boxes of books that tell women right away that you've got some kind of disease, and whatever it is, they don't want to catch it.

Unless you are me who thinks it's very cute when her boyfriend and his friend break out the comics and get excited to tell you all about them! :D

Ah, the blessed few.

Shweet. Now I just need a spare $50 to buy the damn thing, and a way to insulate my laptop (it gets way to hot to actually use it on my lap for any extended period of time).

Ah, but to have each and every one in their original form as they were released, just as Stan and Jack intended, that is the beauty of those many long boxes. And, in my humble experience, even if a girl is not interested in comics, and there definitely aren't many of those around, i have yet to find one who finds you suddenly unattractive because you read them.

As to the virtue of having the books themselves, well, the collector in me would love to have 'em, but I have neither the space nor the money to amass such a collection. Also, to be honest, I'm much more interested in being able to read all the stories in a row than I am in actually owning the books.

As to the ladies, well, that very well might be true. I am, however, still working on convincing enough ladies to actually enter my place to have a good sample size on which to base good statistical data, so I won't know for sure for another, let me check my current pace, oh fifty years. Zing!
