Annoyed beyond belief

I’ve always known that comic fans in Canada were getting the shaft…what I didn’t realize is how much of a shaft we were getting.

Below is a little list I compiled of US vs Canadian cover prices vs real exchange rates as of today.

This is based on the current exchange rate of $1.38 CDN for $1 USD, and is based on what comics I’m buying on Wednesday to cover last week and this week’s haul.

Kudos to JoeTek for figuring out what was up with the massive space.
