Welcome, friends to Super-Blog Team-Up: CHROMIUM... where the gang is going "all-in" on the eras of excess in the comic book industry. I, Your humble host, have decided to take a look at what I consider to be among the more "predatory" gimmicks out of the "Big Two" Publishers. Not only preying upon collectors who require owning each individual variant cover a book is shipped with... but also, including variant-exclusive content within! That's right, folks... if you wanted the "entire story" of Team Titans #1, you would have to buy all-five versions! Tell ya what, that's one expensive Wednesday! Sure glad this didn't catch on!
