From inside front cover:

"An introduction. This isn't an ordinary comic book. This is an educational comic book. (which doesn't make it any less entertaining.) The purpose of this book is to expose the tactics that some devious businessment use to rip-off unsuspecting consumers...."

"Don't let yourself be a victim. Be an educated consumer. Stand up for your rights."
