    September 24, 2012 3:51 pm Chopped my pull list at local store. Feel bad for store, but I don't want to take a risk on all the Marvel titles anymore.
    May 31, 2012 12:34 pm Original question: "Is this person morally culpable for wanting to know about comics as they come out instead of 6 months later while still fully intending to buy those comics in trade format?" Conor answered "yes" but probably read the question "wrong." Yes, we are morally culpable for our desires (i.e. the wanting to know about comics). We are also morally responsible for all of our actions. :. the actions taken to fulfill our desires. In some cases, there can be two faults - wrong desire, wrong action. In this case (i.e. the wanting to know about comics and - presumably - the pirating of said comics) we have neutral desire, wrong action. After reading this thread, I find it disheartening to see such inability to assess ethical schemas. There are a lot of "end justifies the means," "future intentions justifies present actions," and "Robin Hood-esque" excuses in this thread attempting to demonstrate mitigation. But it's all red herring and chaff. I feel like because the topic in question IS comic books that there is an assumption that the normative laws of morality do not apply - or that there is more "wiggle room." Indeed, Volcaos wrote: "What I am trying to point out is that there are situations, and those are more frequent than you may imagine, where there are mitigating factors which make pirating less morally wrong." In order for Volcaos to prove these situations, he needs to present a mitigating factor FOR HIS action - meaning, the factor has to lie WITH HIM AND HIS action, not that of comic book publishers/creators. (i.e. their failures or ineptitudes do not have a direct causal relationship on his actions). After a spare minute of thought, all I could think of was Volcaos being a kleptomaniac; however, online kleptomania would be a difficult factor to prove in and of itself.

    March 27, 2012 11:37 pm We will await him at fort Jackson. But don't fret - there are four comic book stores in town.

    March 15, 2012 2:06 pm Last frame, microphone has CBR on it. This issue really has nothing in it to be excited about. Is Vision THAT exciting? Also, Daisy Johnson: clone of Maria Hill. Ugh.
    March 12, 2012 1:19 pm Yes, Scalped.
