    Meh. Took one look at it in the comic store, scanned through the pages, and put it back. It seemed like a dumb idea when they announced it, but I wanted to see it first hand before I decided. YMMV, of course, but it did nothing for me.

      DC is basicly asking you to pay 3.99 for what amounts to the Sunday comic section of your newspaper–albeit a specialized one.

    I think the 'cover design' is not engaging at all. The store I went to told me they thought it was Comic Shop News. Itty-bitty logo and no overall cover design. It might have been more eye-catching if they had done a golden age anthology ;period' looking cove with a large image and the character 'bullets' on wither side. The average Joe doesn't 'get' what they are going for. Better paper might have held the color. Uncoated stock sucks up ink like a sponge and oversaturated color has less contrast. When I called to see if they still had copies, they said there were plenty on the rack. Nice experiment, nice try.
