An interesting observation.  These are indeed objective, measurable 
standards of "quality" that took the comics producers some real effort 
and care to create, and yet may actually *detract* from one's ability 
to enjoy the product.

Alas, it does appear that the days of comic books on relatively 
inexpensive, newsprint paper have passed.

My two cents,
