Otoh image is known for doing things a bit out of step. Could be a limited release publicity stunt.

I don’t know but it’s issue 4 so I wouldn’t think that.

Might have to swing by my lcs this afternoon. Not sure how much value this would be. Seems limited appeal.

You're most likely right, but I wouldn't put it past Image to pull a stunt out of the blue. I'm not up to snuff on Redlands popularity.

Image has been labeling many of their books as "mature audiences" recently lol

None of those ads make sense.

There is no website or phone number so its probably part of the actually book.

You might want to censor the obvious porn and vulgarity.

This is ostensibly still a family site.

It's part of the book. The digital copy has the same pages.

The ads don’t go with the story so I’m going to say it’s an error the ads are from Las Vegas. The ads are incomplete and not finished. Definately not supppose to be in there. Unless the club pays for incomplete ads to be placed in comic books. The ads are real not made up.

So if this is an error have they recalled the book yet? It wouldn't make sense for the book to not be recalled if it were a true error. As I mentioned in my response, the digital copies has the fake ads too. Do they send the digital copies to the printers too?

The "advertisements" are by comic artist Becca Carey.

They appear in every copy of the book including the digital copy you can buy from Comixology.

"How do you know this isn't a printing mistake?"
The advertisements don't have any contact details or the name of any business or an address. Your theory is that these were supposed to appear in a different book or magazine but how is that possible? Someone is paying to put random unfinished ads in a magazine?

The ads are for Sparkle Town and DJ sexy Lexi is a real DJ in Las Vegas I was thinking they got added by mistake at the end of the book and the ads were never finished. So error by placing them u finished in the back of the book. The ads are way better art work or Live Photo’s than the actual book is. I don’t know why they are there but those ads have nothing to do with the story of the book read it and see for yourself.

If you look up DJ Sexi Lexi she is a real DJ in Las Vegas the ads are real ads. The company is Sparkle Town and the ads have nothing to do with the story of the book read it for yourself. I don’t know why they are there but they are unfinished ads added to the back of the book by mistake. Yes I know they are on the digital copy also what does that matter. All the books have it because it’s a small print run it’s an error for all the books printed. That’s my therory yes and I’m pretty convensed of it. If you have evidence against it please tell me so I can change my mind. Quote:

I dont if they are aware of it but I’m going to email the photos to image and see what they say then they can put it to rest about the book. I’ll let you all know what they about the ads. Quote:

It's very obvious you want this to be an "error copy" since you are so convinced that there is no way this can be unintentional. I'm trying to guess how this may have happened. Do you think Image sends the artwork to the printers and then the printers send the finished product, along with the "error pages", back to Image?

You know I was reading an old bronze aged Batman a few weeks back and they had an error ad inserted into the book too that had nothing to do with the book. They had an ad for Twinkees in the book. OP, I think you may be onto something.
