There seems to be a dearth of Comic Book Cover tropes. Some of them, like Covers Always Lie, are apparently not exclusive to comics, though, even though they are certainly very prevalent in the medium. Should we add them anyway?

I put them onto Cover Tropes and put that under Graphical Tropes (although that may not be that accurate). - The media trope lists are to be made for tropes that belong outright to a medium- that which define the medium and are interwoven to its nature, while tropes that can appear across many media are to be regarded as universal. This should help prevent needless duplication on many lists, account for the ever moving homes of many tropes and prevent index decay. Hopefully the indicies will be more useful and impart more on the nature of the medium itself.
