You know what I hate? You know what I really hate? Incorrect solicits. But not just little mistakes in solicits, solicits that are so wrong or include something not even remotely close to what happens in the issue that you've basically been blatantly lied to in order to buy it. Take the Superboy Annual #1 that came out today, for example. Here's the solicit: A "H'El on Earth" tie-in issue! Superman learns the truth about just what Superboy is. But is it the whole truth? Plus, Rose Wilson of the Ravagers crashes back into Superboy's life--and she's got some dangerous new ideas about his destiny!
That bold part? Didn't happen. Rose wasn't in the issue (though maybe I should be thankful since the writing was atrocious and likely would have butchered her).That was the only reason I bought it, too. Actually, come to think of it, they didn't really even "learn the truth" about Superboy either. The solicit was completely incorrect. A lie. And now I'm out $5 because of it.
