Although interesting overall, I do get annoyed with comparisons of $20 in China vs $280 in the US because it doesn't take into account the fact that in China, the value of that purchase is I think around 3x as high as in the US. And that's just raw purchasing power, it doesn't take into account the cost slide of the specific commodity: toys might cost significantly less in China than they do here, there's no reason they shouldn't since toys made in China don't have to go through the import and shipping process with its high costs. So comparing what a Chinese family spends on toys per year vs a US one without factoring in those 2 elements is comparing apples and oranges, and may not make the cartoon Asian kid as sad as shown.

I don't remember the last movie tie-in comic I bought, but I'm sure none of them were issue-by-issue AFTER I had already seen it. TFA #2 was okay (picking
