The Poor get Poor-er
It was only recently, a few months ago, that I started buying any monthly comics again (and that was after a 6 or 7 year floppy-buying hiatus). And, I wasn't buying a whole goddamn stack of the things, just a couple of titles I was interested in ( I was purchasing the "Blackest Night" main title, "Flash: Rebirth", and whenever I got around to it, "Wednesday Comics"). Unfortunately, our budget has had to be pared down significantly since Shannon was laid off, and now that she's pregnant, we have to stretch my meager paycheck to the breaking point.
I'm bitching, but I know it could always be worse, so I'm content that there is still a roof over our heads, and a few packages of Ramen in the pantry!
