So I'm getting back into comics and I've just finished reading Suicide Squad and Green Lantern: New Guardians, my lord there is ads on every page I've read, I got done finishing Wolverine an the X-men and there was hardly any ads that bothered me.

I understands for promotions but that's too much, makes me reconsider of reading much DC.

The ads are better than Marvel stories.

Why?

#11 Posted by Jorgevy (5114 posts) - - Show Bio

yeah pretty much because they need the money. Compare their prices to marvels prices and their ads to marvel ads....

Guess I'm going to have to get use to it, Funny how I didn't see this many Ads in Wonder Woman's issues, I'm going to ready the New 52's Batman in a few mins.

@Lovenuggets: DC has the same amount of story pages, but its a dollar cheaper than Marvel comics. Thats why. I would much rather deal with ads than pay an extra dollar for the same content

Very true, makes a lot of sense. Honestly I would love to have more Marvel comics but I just don't see anything from Marvel (Recent) I want to read and before the 1 day comic expo started I spent 3 days researching on what I wanted to read from Marvel....Just Spider Man and a X-men, and I've read that X-men Vs Avengers is "Meh", So I went ahead and started my comic book reading by buying Dc's 52's Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, and Batman (Night of the owls). Going to get Nightwing and Batgirl pretty soon.

I'm an obvious Batman fan >.>

I realized something about ads, they make the comic seem bigger/longer than it really is. So when you pick up the book off the shelf it feels heavy and thick so it's as if you're getting a good value.

would you consider that as False advertisement? making it seem there are more pages then there actually is? just a question and a thought.

Yes, this would constitute false advertising. Unless my theory is wrong and they don't do it on purpose.
