I'm just saying it clearly worked rather well for them in my case.
Herogasm (and the solicits for it) just sounds
more interesting than The Boys. I'm pretty sure the first time I read a solicit for The Boys I read "blah blah blah team of CIA ops blah blah blah" and never took a second look. When I read Herogasm was a send-up of Crises and Crossovers, I was interested.
I figured they did it so it was an actual crossover of sorts.
