The Word of The Day

Quesadafication (kay-SAHD-i-fi-cay-shun) n. 1. An editorial tendency for employing lame narrative stunts in comic book plotting (e.g. “One More Day,” “Batman R.I.P.,” "Secret Invasion," "Zombies") to temporarily boost sales among gullible readers only to then reverse said stunt (e.g. “Superman dies, returns with mullet”) in 6-12 months after it has exhausted itself. 2. See also “double-dipping,” “dredging the well.”
