I'm in a terrific period of unemployement where I throw all my attention on comics. I bought 'tons' of them, both french and english.

I discovered many super cool stories. I didn't know the Gordon of Gotham series which is awesome ; Super boy here on the picture is not the DC superman thing, it's an old french superhero (very funny btw).

I also find the "Forever evil" from DC which tells the story of the Syndicate taking over the world. The Justice Leagues are beaten so the vilains and the last heroes (basically, Batman) fight the Syndicate. It is really cool. Within those, I read for the first time some "Rogues" pages (they are Flash ennemies). I love the drawing of Scott Helpburn. 

I also found some old science fiction comics. I don't know if they existed anywhere else than France. They are from the mid 60's. It's in the same spirit than novels from this period in term of SF univers. 

So good finds. I found all of these in bric-a-brac for almost nothing. People just want to get rid of old stuff that they often have from their youth or from their parents. I got some superman and spiderman books for 10 or 20 cents... I have spent around 30 euros in a month for something like 130 comic books. So it's ridiculous and i'm very happy about it! ^^

I wish @Radu, is an impossible task. I have started Spec Ops The Line recently, need to finish that before I start a new SP. Also should try working on the CS contest or DoI map… and probably not waste time watching TV, unfortunately I have to be selective with my time :/

I'm sitting on an old, 1st gen 120 hz monitor with awful color calibration and contrast. I've mentioned before that I use my iPhone 7 for correction, and I wasn't lying. I'd like to pretend that I have time to play games these days, so I'd like 144hz with low MS, but I also want excellent color correction and contrast. What do I buy? An IPS panel? Are those as much of a gamble with bleed as they say? I doubt I'd spend more than €1k.

Maybe take a look at VA / AMVA panels. These can be both high-fidelity and high-refreshrate (from what i've heard).

I still have my old Acer GD245HQbid (first gen too), it's a TN panel but the colors were pretty great when it released (3 of Delta E, which is good, not amazing but good enough).

Also, IPS panels aren't as slow as they used to be, you can still have something clean but only at 60 hz I guess.

ASUS has a IPS with 144hz and g-sync for around €800, but I've heard there's a big risk for backbleed :/
