Out of context, that's pretty crass and disgusting. Image seems to be going for shock recognition since few of their books are any good on their own.

Image's marketing department isn't very good.

They're best ads were snarky ripoffs of an actual successful campaign.

Yeah. That's a lousy way to hit some of your potential readers in the gut as an isolated marketing image. In the course of a larger something it wouldn't stand alone like that, but as a single image/tagline...No. :smt011

Because their comic can't succeed on it's own merits obviously.
