More evidence that no one ever proofreads this stuff.

(Emphasis mine.)

Seriously, Diamond, you already have the industry and its fans by the short hairs. At least do us all the favor of making sure that solicitation copy doesn't contradict itself, most especially in the space of a mere two sentences!

In the interest of fairness, though, I feel the need to point out that despite the horribly written and blatantly contradictory Diamond solicitation copy you see above, if you have the means, you should do yourself a favor and acquire this book, or at least the earlier trades or back issues, as it's truly one of the best fantasy/adventure comics of the last decade or so.
