For many Americans, the Thanksgiving holiday
is a time of blessing and gratitude that facilitates the coming together of friends and family both close and disparate to break bread, reflect upon their lives and relationships with one another, and to contemplate the depths of their unspoken disdain. For other Americans, like me, Thanksgiving is all about Black Friday
. The busiest shopping day of the year comes with bargains accurately advertised as "insane," and they're to be found in virtually every dimension of the retail universe. It's the ideal time of year to fill the deep, dark holes in our souls with material goods that reflect or enhance our personal brands and lifestyle idioms, and you can believe comic book merchants are getting in on the action.
