Loren whats your surprise??

every time a Marvel or DC executive, creator or editor or wahtever talks about their comics they always say: wow, this is going to be great, really, the best comic of teh decade, blah bla bla...

they never say something like: from the 60 titles taht we are publishing , i think 40 of them are plain crap, or something like that, which is probably what they think. I mean, a normal person ( i am not talking about f'''' freaks who buy 30 titles a month) like 5- to 10 titles or something like that. You have to be stupid to like evrything a company publish.

So, tehy always are manipulative, for they;: verything the y do is great and it will blow yopur mind and bal bañ bal, tehy are not sincere, so i am nortsurpisdsed about the quotes

> Loren whats your surprise??

I've never seen Marvel or DC actually alter the words of a jacket quote before, while still keeping the quote marks around it. Maybe they do it in other places (I haven't checked), but that would just make it worse.

Just imagine what the reaction would be if Warner Brothers got caught changing reviewer quotes they used in their movie ads to make the reviewers sound more positive. Not just selectively quoting, or even manipulating through the use of ellipsis (which would still be frowned upon), but actively changing and replacing words to punch it up.

Of course I don't expect a publisher to put a negative review on the jacket. That's silly. But I expect them to be honest with the ones they *do* use.
