    Yah those are so annoying. A bunch of people complaind about them at my comic shop. Some companies put them in between the staples so you can slide them out easily, but this latest Marvel batch was part of the staple. Also it totally kills the value of the book in the future.

    All I know is they're as annoying as those trading card inserts were in the 90s.

    I was wondering why all the Amazing Spider-man books were bent to hell.

    I can't stand them doing it and it really does need to stop. I can do with ads, even tons of ads, but when they start adding heavy duty material to comics that can't handle the insert, it's time to stop. Especially since they say they can't make heavy duty covers because of costs yet they can afford this crap.

    Not when the dumb insert ruins the pages. My shop had to send back lots of copies of last week's books due to insert-caused damage.

    Ah. I hadn't thought of it like that.

    I have no love for these things either, mind you. I've just always left that stuff in because I thought I was keeping the value of the book up.
