If you picked up a copy of X-Men Legacy #2, you may have been a little worried about its lack of, well, heft. It felt thinner, the pages more see-through. Indeed, when scanning pages for yesterday's report, I had to fiddle with the settings as details of the page behind it came right through.
The worry is, is this the way things are going to be from now on? With all of Marvel's comics?
Seems not. The printer used the incorrect paper stock and by the time it was discovered, it was on the way to retailers.
I understand the printer has been given a smack on the hand by Marvel and told them not to do anything like that again. They are also checking that no other books have been printed in such an offensively thin fashion…
