    I'll toss my bit in here: if you feel cheated by a skip week, go back and re-visit the earlier books. They stand up well to repeated readings.

    gotta have your breaks, although am I the only one who saw that last moment in volume 4 coming from a mile away? (not that it wasn't awesome there was just monumental amounts of foreshadowing for that)

    No you aren't. But it was good anyway.
    Still this is the first skip week to actually affect me as I just started reading the whole thing from beginning on Saturday. Don't know what to do for the next week.
    Spring is fabulous here in the northern part of the world, its been around +25C (77f) all week in central Finland.

    So let me get this straight @mrpaulgray...

    You say this comic is: "pictorially repititive (sic), and painfully prolonged, and predictable" and "that ... the narrative is pointlessly spun out" - and that the 'action' is 'non-intelligent' ( and by the way, did you look that up on Urban Dictionary in an effort to be clever, or did you think that was an actual word )?

    Yet you create an account solely to say how you are grumpy about all the skip weeks in a comic that is in your opinion boring and not worth buying? If you really feel that way about it, how is it you've been bothered to read it at all, let alone been moved to even go through the motions you did just to snivel about it?

    My advice is to go and eat your own shit, since the flavor of it is probably more palatable than the bowls full of ours you've just been served. Which would make perfect sense, except that you were complaining about not being able to eat this shit often enough, right? Wow.

    Can I buy pot from you?

    I TOLD you there was gonna be a skip week. It actually clears the mental palette, makes you appreciate the book more. Plus, IT'S FUCKING FREE!

    @Berserker - yeah, I want what he's smoking.
