    Default When Comic Collection Goes Too Far

    We all know comic collectors can be a little possessive about their prized objects d'art. But I've never seen it go this far before.
    [FONT=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif]A 45-year-old married father allegedly stabbed his cousin in the neck with a pair of scissors after the victim broke a Marvel Comics collector glass while the two drank beer at the cousin?s Northwest Side home.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif]...[/FONT]

    [FONT=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif]Jensen, who had blood on his clothing, told police that he and his cousin had been drinking beer from the Marvel Comics collectors set when Ortega dropped a glass and it broke, leading to verbal altercation that soon grew physical, Kantas said.[/FONT]
    That's... that's bad.

    Sadly, there's still a grammatical error.

    Wow. Taking Giles Coren's point to the (il)logical extreme, this is an article for illiterate men who can only look at pictures without words...

    This is so sad. He shouldn't be referred to as a collector at this point. I think he crossed the gap into psychopath the second he thought about the scissors... ...at least from our outside perspective. He's probably been that way for a long time.

    And why do I get the feeling that anyone who would focus on the writing of the article is a maybe possibly a collector with social issues as well? Seriously? The grammar or depth of the article is the problem? Not the fact that a grown man went insane and stabbed his own family in the neck with a pair of scissors because he broke his HULK glass? Isnt that a wee bit more potent than a spelling error or quick paragraph just to get the news out? Arrrrrggh! People really gross me out sometimes... HULK STAB!!! #poortaste
