Billy Moron Sez: "I grabbed these Suicide Squads because of the film coming up so they'll be hot!"

Whoa.  There are some real arschlochs out there. I've been watching some videos of comic collectors.  Well, not real collectors but....well.

One is rude about someone he purchased lots of action figures and Silver Age comics from and adds "I'll be going back to his house  -he has no idea what he has"...so he's ripping the person off.

Then there's "I grabbed this. It has Darkseid in it -I'm jumping on board cus he's bound to be in a DC movie soon" and "This guy from the Flash TV series is going to be Vibe so I grabbed this comic!" Most of these people have no idea about the characters or history -"no one really cares". 

And the bitching about first appearances -"He was only in a couple of final panels so that's not his first appearance -that's the next issue where he's on the cover!"  Let me make this clear because there are MORONS in comics.  The established protocol is that if a character appears in #123 -even if it's only a panel or 3 panels- THAT is the FIRST appearance.  Scream and shout all you like but that is first appearance.  Not "NO! He's got to be on the cover!" Argue about it and you are an ass.

"I grabbed these Suicide Squads because of the film coming up so they'll be hot!" But, not the original Suicide Squad (Task Force X?) the newer versions cus, like, the old stuff is lame and the new comics have the movie characters in, y'know?

I despair.
