JFC… I never said I didn’t read their books. I’ve actually read and bought quite a few; all of the Alan Moore titles, and a number of the Ellis, Ennis, and other titles from prominent writers. I probably own three hundred or more of their comic books.
So I know exactly what they are like.
A lot of that stuff is schlocky. There’s a lot of gratuitous, exploitive nudity and violence and gore that’s really only there to shock. (coughCrossed*cough) Combine that with some dodgy artwork, garish colors, half a dozen variant covers per issue, ads in the back for more variant covers, weird-smelling paper, and you have a publisher that’s going to come off as cheesy. It’s not surprisng they’re getting overlooked when they’re the company that puts out variant covers with women gettng sawed in half through their crotches.
(Though I can appreciate that their books are printed on heavier paper stock, it reeks.)
It also doesn’t help when they’re pushing ALAN MOORE comics that are actually written by Antony Johnston. Which I’ve always found a bit strange considering that Moore will demand his name be taken off of things he actually did write, but is content to use his name to sell things he didn’t actually write…
I’m sorry, but it’s hard to take a publisher that outs out stuff like this seriously:
At best, that says “I bought this because I want to freak out my mother.”
