I'm sure that you don't personally write the solicitations for Marvel Previews but I have a complaint. I searched and searched Marvel.com for a way to contact somebody who would be responsible but came up empty. Thus, I'm bringing my comments straight to you through the only place I know: MySpace.
It's not an exaggeration (X-Aggeration?) to say that I hate it when a solicitation is "Classified." I think the reason Marvel does this is to avoid spoilers. If I wanted to avoid spoilers, I wouldn't be reading Marvel Previews. I expect Previews to preview what is coming up. Shocking, I know. I won't pre-order a comic that is solicited "Classified."
There IS a very small chance that I'll pre-order a "Classified" comic based on the creative team alone. It's happened but it's rare. However, the Siege one-shots in the current Marvel Previews don't even have the creative teams. Heck, they don't even have titles. (See page 13 of issue 78 if you don't know what I'm referring to.) That's six titles I'm not going to order and therefore probably won't buy at all.
Please cut out the "Classified" garbage. I really believe that you're only hurting yourself in the long run.
Towards the future...

PS. Whoever wrote up the issue also spelled "Spider-Man" as "Spiderman" on the same page. That's awfully sloppy work for a Marvel publication!
What do the rest of you think about "Classified" solicitations?
