While my body is still recovering from San Diego, the majority of my consciousness has been looking over comics news, both during and post-show. It’s a lot to process, and it’s almost enough to make me want to do Gutters 5 times a week.
I’m a big proponent for publishers doing a marketing pushes to promote their titles, but I genuinely feel that it’s possible to do so without it being at the expense of another publisher.
Building yourself up through putting someone else down is not the route I like to see companies take. Sad to say that the above mentioned promotion from Marvel is real.
Still, one has to wonder how far some people would go for a variant cover?

Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll see you back here on Monday.
