The wonders of alcohol and soccer

After Arsenal lost the Champions League final to Barcelona, a man showed up at my local comic shop angered and a hair drunk. His team had lost and Manhunter had been canceled. Thanks to a baffling combination of righteous anger and disposable income, he decided that he would do what he could to rectify the situation he felt he had more control over: he bought the next three issues of Manhunter for every single person with a pullbox.

True story, hand to God.

Thanks to the Gunners having to play a man down from seventeen minutes in, I get free comics. That's a total butterfly flapping its wings in Africa and starting a fire in the Amazon situation, right there.
