Magneto Was Right

Falling off the X-Men wagon

As suspected, my newest toy, an Asus Transformer Prime Android tablet, makes a superb e-comic reader. My latest X-book cold turkey spell, induced by a period a few years back when I had trouble getting to Forbidden Planet on a regular basis, is now officially at an end and I've been catching up on the current X-Men: Schism arc and beyond. The Marvel reader app makes it way too easy to buy "just one more issue" but, oddly, there's no shopping basket - you have to purchase each issue individually! I'm also rather amused that my credit card issuer didn't query a bunch of accessories I order for the tablet but did query the purchase of an issue of Astonishing X-Men the same night!

Incidentally, thanks to aeshna_uk, I have a t-shirt with the icon design on it!
