ComicBookResources has another issue of blatant pandering from Marvel, trying to get us to buy into this using Deadpool.

At this point we can consider this publisher a drug dealer, because they are trying to get us hooked on stuf we know is bad for us, but we will do it anyways.



Stop. Hammer time.

It's like 90's street crack mixed with gold-flaked pixie dust and that funk from nasty Purple Haze ganja. No, I have no clue what I am talking about.

"Cocaine is a hell of a drug." - Rick James.

I got to give it to Marvel, they are trying REAL HARD to hook us readers. Once that initial hit and the high wears off, I feel depressed and ashamed for trying it, but damn, looking at Wade go.

Same--honestly, I haven't really thought of it lately until I saw the convo here--to me this was just a funny cover.

I would agree, or rather, I did agree, until I found out who the writer is.

Ever hear of Chris Hastings? Ill give you a hint. He writes my name.

Wow, they actually stayed pretty accurate on the backing dancers instead of perv-updating? Kudos!

At least the art is better. And this isn't a cheap tactic to get people to stop buying DC.

Cite your reference on the anti-DC point?

Or are you turning around their "Drawing the line--" tagline at them?

I think there was some "Trade In Your DC Event Issues For Marvel Event Issue!" thing during Blackest Night and . . . Siege? Or Secret Invasion or something.

Yeah, it was Siege.

I do believe that is the variant cover marvel offered to retailers at a rate of one variant cover issue per every whatever number of DC Blackest Night tie-in issue covers sent in to them. Basicly, for destroying a number ( I think it was thirty-something) of DC books, they got one book with this cover. I do remember that the specific issue were the one where you got the various plastic lantern rings with them.

Destroying covers is actually a fairly common practice within publishing.

When Waldenbooks went out of business, all unsold paperbacks left in the stores had the covers removed and sent back to publishers as proof of non-sale, and the remainder of the books' bodies were recycled.

Within publishing generally yes, but comic stores have generally worked on a model of non-return.

Yeah, I think that's only done in comics if the pages are out of order or something.

That's true, but it doesn't change the fact that Marvel was asking for retailers to destroy fairly recent, still sellable issues. And asking people to destroy their cometion's books is a just plain asshole move.

Also it's funny. Or at least actually discernably trying to be.

That's... a lot of bling

Dannng. The thing with jewellery though, is that once it leaves the shop, it's value drops by a third. But still dannnng, that's a lot of bling.

I still say that if they really just went balls-out and made fun of the event, like a homage to GL#50 with Deadpool holding a whole bunch of power rings and grinning maniacally that it could have been an awesome, magnificent bastard move.

At first I was thinking how much Wade was reminding me of Dark Smoke Puncher... and then I saw the tag/solicit info. Hastings!

So... at first I was like 0_o then I was like 0.0 and then I was all \^_^/

I like '80s rapper Deadpool better than '00s rapper Deadpool.

But what I want most is for them to engage in a Freestyle Rap Battle.

Hiring the Dr. McNinja guy to write Deadpool isn't pandering in any sense of the word -- it's genius.

I haven't been terribly excited about Deadpool's solo stuff for a while now, but CHRIS HASTINGS. HELL. YEAH. :D:D:D:D.

Maybe we'll one day even get a Batman-Alex Trebek team up to solve trivia and save the world! :D:D:D:D.

I am unmoved by Deadpool in general, so his participation is not a selling point for Fear Itself as far as I'm concerned. But I'll buy for the Stuart Immonen visuals regardless.

It is fun to see a homage to "Can't Touch This" era Hammer, however.
