In jest, I added a watermark like many gaming websites would do. Click on the IGN link in the OP, they did just that. It was a parody, a joke, as I alluded to in an earlier reply.
I didn't realize other gaming websites actually put their own watermarks. I avoid giving IGN clicks but I guess it's ok if they put a watermark if they're the first hand source.
While this is the least "CE" CE I've ever seen, I like it. The price is the same (going through Gamestop, I realize the compendium is $4 cheaper at Amazon) if you get the game and compendium separately or bundled together. Gamers can't complain that they're not getting the complete experience since there isn't any exclusive DLC. Gamers don't have to buy the CE if they're not interested in the compendium. I think the exclusive cover also entices the more hardcore comic fans. Just browsing the completed auctions of the #100 cover variants on eBay, some of the covers fetched more than others. It really depends on how many are produced.
