    I've been reading some of the comments on the Dynamite Forums and I'd like to chime in on why some titles may not be selling well. One issue I've noticed, and this doesn't just apply only to Dynamite, has to do with the condition of the books themselves. By that I mean, I can't begin to tell you the number of times when I go to the comic book stores I frequent on the day the books come out, only to be disappointed by how practically every issue has some kind of defect. I'm not talking about damage incured by mishandling, I'm talking about every book having the same kind of defect in the same areas both inside and out. I can only presume these defects must happen at some point during the printing/binding process. I've passed up many titles because of this. It doesn't matter how many comic book stores I go to, the problem persists everywhere. What makes it even more odd, is that it happens more with some titles than others. Case in point, I've noticed that with Alex Ross' Mask series, the issues with his artwork on the covers tend to have more damage than the covers by the other artists, why is this? What's the point of books like the Overstreet Price Guide listing how a book is more valuable the better the condition it's in, if book printers put out books that look like they've been through the wringer? I implore those in charge at Dynamite, and other publishers to discuss this issue with those in charge of whatever companies that do the actual printing of the books to exercise some quality control. It doesn't benefit anyone to have shelves with unsold books because no one wants to buy damaged issues.

    I hope my input has given some insight.

    Thank you for your time.
