I happen to know this guy well enough to know that he's not going to be really interested in any of these books anyway. He's more of a die-hard Silver Age fan -- which accounts for the quality of their back issue selection. But I find it interesting as a commentary on what someone who might not be reading these books regularly might think as they scanned across the rack of new material. Does "kind of funky" warrant picking the book up? How does "out there" rate on the scale of attracability? Do either of those hold a candle to "nice cover"?
