And you never — no, never — messed with the masthead on the cover, that last one arising from the fear that readers wouldn’t see the book on the sales shelf unless it had the “right” masthead properly displayed.

  1. I like it when that happens, because it’s an example of breaking the fourth wall. I’m surprised that Deadpool hasn’t done that, yet.
