Title: Fractal Mater quoted in new Previews catalogue
Post by: Francis Davis on June 29, 2007, 07:20:18 AM
Just a quick note that the Fractal Matter review for John Woo's Seven Brothers from last November got a quote pulled for Virgin comics' add for the new series of Seven Brothers. It's on page 360 of the new catalogue and the pulled quote reads.

"John Woo's contribution to Virgin Comics Director's Cut line, Seven Brothers has the distinction of being the best title Virgin has put out thus far."

Yay for press. ;D

Cool.

Bit of a strange quote to use though, effectively belittling the rest of their own line. Nevermind.

It is strange, and knowing that I wrote the review. The context pulling is amazing. with that, I realize that I sounded like an ass to boot.

According to Mr Hall we're also quoted on Anita Blake TPB.  Which again is amusing.

I'm guessing he saw it on the ISB like I did:

Yeah and missed off the honest bit...

That's about right - they also miss off that The Annotated Anita Blake is about a 50/50 split between negative comments and abusive mocking.

I am so happy that I spent the 10 dollars for the book last year at Wizard World Chicago and got it across to the home office for a professional thrashing.

I could've gotten a good cigar for that ten dollars.
