I think I dfeleted my comment by accident. While I was trying to edit it. As far as the black thing goes. I couldn't care less. As far as the worsening quality and escalating prices of comics though I do care a little. I am never satisfied with comics that I buy any more because the artists are all just splash page artists and the stories are always to be continued next month. And these are stories that would have left room if written on a post-it-note. I say bring back cheap black and white comics on cheap paper that told a complete story in every issue and all this affirmative action oneupmanship. Maybe wont be so pervasive. The artists and writers will be too busy telling stories that sell rather than trying to get their foot in the door in Hollywood.
