It's his job to make the book sound cool. He wants it to sell and keep getting work. Hell, DC did a decent job of making Countdown and Final Crisis sound cool and they both sucked hard. Marvel announced they bought the rights to Marvel Man and we all thought we would get Moore Trades next week, that ain't going to happen any time soon either. If you can't pimp the product, you need to get another job.

Yeah, but I trust Giffen enough to think he will probably follow through on his promises.

Phonogram is 'Things Kieran Will Think Are Fucking Awesome About Music'

Final Crisis was 'Things Kieran Will Think Are Fucking Awesome About Comics'

I'm such a Kirbyphile, there's no way I could hate Final Crisis.

You're getting Hickman's FF right? Everything i've seen of the art and writing looks majorly Kirby influenced. And will definitely be 1000X better than Final Crisis.

si, senor. I am finishing the review as we speak. Even been talking to the publisher today because Diamond sold out and we needed more.

nurama has the fcdb offereing which is the first chapter of the issue: http://www.newsarama.com/php/multimedia ... ?aid=27895

It's kind of a tease though, cause once they go through that closet, shit gets crazy!
