Scary saga about the clash of business tycoons, who hadn't basically ever read a single page of a comic book, but found Marvel anyway interesting pick because of its peculiar numbers. In this book you will discover what brought Marvel to bankruptcy and what kind of powers struggled to gain the control over it by paperwork, just to make more profit by exploiting its weaknesses and assets, without exhibiting a bit of interest to the creative and real value adding aspect of the company. What kind of life is this these stock and bond market businessmen lead? They live for a work almost 24 hours a day, think only about numbers and zeros they might add (or subtract, given the case) to their bank accounts (without really harming their financial positions and lifestyles) and casually chat with their potential business partners or enemies (again, given the case...) about everything (but comics) over the lunch break while at the same time pondering how to outsmart and beat them, without basically having a clue about the actual companies they are fighting over. I define that really scary. Playing such a persistent game with people's lives and dreams (depending on the perspective, whether you're insider or outsider in the entire story) because of the egos, and of how much fortune they personally might yield of it? Do not talk to me about the pocket money they give for their philanthropic causes, please - that would be quite a hypocrisy.
