Whoever wrote the solicitation text made a nice try at a Who in-joke about "substitutes" up there. I can't fault them for their musical tastes, but it was a bit of a reach...

I totally missed that until you pointed it out. Turns out the simple things you see are all complicated; the comics look pretty young, but they're just back-dated.

See, now that's how it's done. Kudos, sir.
