I think these thing sound like a childhood dream come true-but are they as amazing as they seem?

I'm considering buying one but I'm not sure if they're worth the hype. Should I wait until they're cheaper and more advanced or are they worth buying?

Tell me about your experiences with 3D printing, please..
So I finally got around to reading the first trade since everyone and their mom was in love with it and I didn't like it. I thought it was really bad.

I thought the story was boring, too much back story especially considering the subject matter. I thought it often veered into gross territory and I thought it was juvenile when discussing male sexuality in particular. This in particular made me not like the male lead (who happens to look exactly like a handsome Matt Fraction). 
And the bad guys were weird and completely out of place and unlikable. They felt like they were from a different book entirely. 

I will say the art was charming as hell. I enjoyed that part of the comic. It reminded me a lot of the web comic Subnormality by Winston Roundtree. I thought it might even be him under a pseudonym but no.

So what did ya'll think? Anyone else feel like this lived up to the hype?
So I live in a small house in rural suburbs somewhere in Pennsylvania. My house is situated on about a half acre but there's a short woods behind my house and I don't really know what's beyond it. It's pretty boring and too overgrown for any hiking or exploring. 

But three days ago I woke up (as I do every morning) and there were these two (2!) huge freaking towers in the woods/fields behind my house. I mean they are huge. It's hard to estimate a size since there aren't any buildings around that are more than 3 stories but I'd say they're at least... Really tall-well over a hundred feet. They aren't cell phone towers but that's the closest thing I can think of to compare them to-or maybe they look more like those giant structures used to carry power lines long distances. They're identical to each other to the naked eye but I used my binoculars to look at them closer and the one has a large letter "B" on it towards the top. The towers are a dark grey or off black and appear to be made out of iron, which is strange considering how much they must weigh. I went into the woods and tried to find the base of the towers but... Well honestly I got freaked out and went home. 

So what should I do? These things are freaking me out. I mean, what are they? No one seems to know and they just popped up literally overnight. I kind of want to pack up and run but my wife says I'm being ridiculous and paranoid (which, in all fairness, I have been know to be in the past). What do I do? I've been getting headaches...  
Ok, so I was reading the old Zelda manga, the one that ran in Nintendo Power in the early 90's and is based on a Link to the Past (roughly). In said manga, link makes a set of Icarus wings. The guy who teaches Link how to make said wings explains that they're basically magical wings because they were made from the birds the old Knights used to ride way back in the day. 
As I understand it, this is a clear reference to Skyward Sword (the ending, especially) which was chronologically the first, or one of the first, Zelda games (as I understand it). How could this manga reference events that weren't chronicled for another 20(ish) years? I don't recall there ever being any mention of the old knights riding majestic birds in any of the games at the time. Was this just a coincidence?  What am I missing?
I really enjoy using an artist's mannequin for sketching and working out poses and such. Problem is those wooden ones they sell at art stores leave a lot to be desired. I have a super poseable, realistic blank action figure that I use but it's kinda fragile and I can't find a male counterpart. I've looked at random action figures to use but they often don't pose realistically or are unrealistically proportion. 

Any suggestions? Don't suggest I use a real live model unless you wanna come to my house and sit for me. 
So I made a webcomic. That's what I've been doing all this time.

Go read it and expect more to come.

What do you colour your drawings with?

:iconmetalhartrockandroll:
Photoshop CS 6 except for a few, like the Space Bunny, those are done with Prisma Markers. They're about half the price of Copic markers. I've never used Copic markers so I can't really compare them quality wise but I like them. I usually use them for screwing around with ideas-basically sketching with colors-or drawing with my 6 year old.
