Having worked in the print industry for 20+ years, I am having a harder and harder time paying $3-5.00 for books that literally are damaged by my mere handling of them. The paper is so light that the ink offsets on my hands and frankly most copies are damaged by just the shipping process. The entire run of Empire of the Dead in the Rochester NY area had all sorts of printing and finishing damage. I refused to buy them and all of the dealers are getting sick of trying to get damage claims from Diamond and Marvel. Is anyone else getting tired of this.
Just so you know I am a Marvel Zombie through and through and think the content is great. Just not happy with the actual manufactured product.
