Well... this is funny

So I was just pointed to something pretty funny about the latest Catwoman trade by Twitter user @InformGeek, who reviews books for Adventures in Poor Taste. Above, you'll see the cover of the latest Catwoman trade, something you couldn't pay me to read. But take a look at that cover quote. "A gutsy change of pace." Really, USA Today?

Well, not really.

You see, that quote isn't referring to any of the issues collected in that trade, let alone anything that the writer who made me drop this book in disgust has written. That quote is about the very first issue.

Nice try, DC. What's the matter? Couldn't find anything nice that was said about these issues? Huh, imagine that, maybe you should, you know... put a new creative team on this book?

  1. Thanks for the mention.

    I was just so curious when I saw that quote and wanted to see the actual review to see how out of context DC took it (they did something similar with the The Culling trade where the top quote was from a poor review). But surprise surprise, it was for the old book. That is just so bad....
