Bug Description

Based on this Debian bug:

recipes/comics_com.recipe contains comments with summaries of various comic strips. I'm not sure if it's ok to use them, but since the comments apparently don't affect the functionality of the code, why not remove them or replace them with shorter descriptions?

src/calibre/gui2/ contains a reviews of a Dirac biography for testing purposes.
One of the reviews is copyrighted (and quoted as such). Perhaps it should be removed.

Changed in calibre (Debian):
status: Unknown → New

A summary is definitely fair use exempted. The comments help someone creating
a custom recipe based of the builtin one to decide which comics they want.
