It just seems like general jackassery to me, it's also retarded

ORDER 50 DC COMICS AND SEND IT TO US THEIR DIRECT COMPETITORS AND WE'LL SEND YOU 1 MARVEL COMIC.

So DC/Daimond get 200 dollars worth of merchandise moved, and marvel gets a bunch of comics that they'll end up pulping, only to ship off a rare variant of a mediocre series that will probably just have Deadpool posing like a jackass

INNOVATIVE!

They want to find out the sales figures on DC's ring incentive to see if something similar will be a worthwhile promotion for them?

So I checked out the latest Black Panther issue which is a prelude to "Doomwar", and it...wasn't that bad. Though I didn't really like
the revelation at the end where T'Challa and Shuri have apparently predicted what Doom was going to do
it really undercut some of the "Oh ****." tension that they should have been trying to build up.

I think more likely they are trying to show to retailers and readers that the rings didn't sell the comics. It didn't get extra eyes on the books it just got more on the shelf of retailers who wanted the rings. If Marvel gets 10,000 books they can yell out that the sales figures were off by 10k every time DC inevitably talks about how great the books did for a blackest night tie-in. Marvel gets to see how many of the books were actually purchased because of the rings and how many were actually bought by customers.

I'm sure that, just as TV stations have access to other TV station's ratings, sales figures are mostly known by both sides.

I finally read all of the JMS run on Thor. It was super fun, I really liked it. Is it worth continuing on after he leaves? I know fraction is getting the book and I generally like what he does but how about this other guy?

Don't expect me to take you with me when I go to s
Phonogram is fantastic.

I don't really care for S.W.O.R.D. or Thor though.

I'm enjoying S.W.O.R.D. quite a bit, but it needs another artist, or atleast the artist needs to learn that some aliens have different shaped heads, and Beast isn't part horse

His Thor's been pretty decent, as was DR:Ares, and that Beta Ray Bill mini
