    Y'know, Ben, that is very true.

    OTOH, if I find the book alienating and annoying, and hate it with every fibre of my being, I'm not gonna care if it's the most successful book in the universe. It's still not my book.

    NB: This is hypothetical. As far as prejudging it goes: there have been decisions made that I know about that are alienating and annoying me, but overall I don't think the book will. I believe I will like it a bit, though I don't know that yet.

    I meant the characters were well-known and not D-list, people know who they are. I never heard of almost anyone in Heroes for Hire, and after reading a bit of it I know why...

    Okay, that makes more sense.
    Though there's a huge difference between established characters and an established team.

    I give the people in Marketing less credit than this. Bendis himself has said that he was surprised at the response. Maybe killing them off was marketing, but I believe that any claim of the off panel death being something more intelligent than a mistake is simply a cover up. A CONSPIRACY!!!
