    It's probably one of the most original comics I've had the pleasure of reading. I downloaded the first arc and now I won't read another issue until I own the entire run. It seems the good lord does not want me to own it though, since this is the 5th auction I've lost :(

    don't you know you're only supposed to bid in the last few seconds of the auction?

    i know this...today my bid with 30 some odd seconds left, i came up outbid. i had another window open ready to shoot again, but it was already over.

    the two times before that, i got it right at the end...only to refresh with 3 seconds left and i've been outbid. :(

    Thats what I do when I want to win. Sometimes, even before I know I want to win.


    ebay is evil.

    If you really want Ex Machina, I think my comic store has a bunch of them at $1 each, a pretty decent run if I remember correctly. I can check later this week if you want.

    sidenote, my internet went down yesterday at about 5pm as i was watching a ExM 1-17 auction that ended at 7...i was freaking out because i was going to miss another one. it came back on almost right before 7pm, when the auction ended. so i jumped on ebay in about 2 nanoseconds and hit my watch list, as soon as the page loaded i had 5 seconds left. i tried to put in a bid but all i said was "OH FUCK NO!" and smashed in some characters on the bid screen :mad: :wtc:

    no one bid on it either, i would have gotten all 17 issues for $25 :(

    then my internet connection bugged back out and didn't work again till like 10

    OUCH. That sucks man. Sounds like ebay + ex machina = your greatest bane.

    :eek4: you fucking bastards!!! :mad: :mad: :(

    :mamoru:

    outstanding, thanks for looking for me :h5:
    when's the next time you're going into the shop? did he have many copies left? if he doesn't have many left then i'll take the $1 ones. if i got them all it would be over $30 after shipping an all, and i've got a few more auctions lined up for the whole run less then that.

    i'm not sure if you can call and he'll save them or what, but let me know when you plan to take another trip out there.

    I already put 2-8, the $1 issues, in my hold box. I forgot to mention, the cover price books would actually get 10% off, if that makes any difference to you. :bigthumb:
