Clumsy. Forgettable. Unfulfilling. Those three words sum up my feelings on DC's latest experiment. Maybe if I were committed to spending the $48 to read Wednesday Comics for the next 12 weeks the teeny tiny snippets found in this bundle of cumbersome folded paper would be more intriguing but as a stand alone experience it's little more than a collection of beautiful art with virtually nothing to back it up. Some strips handled the one page format better than others, but for the most part they barely hold their on with your standard online previews. If DC wants to sell me a Gaiman/Allred Metamorpho comic or Paul Pope's Strange Adventures I'm all for that, but they're going to have to give me a bit more than one page at a time.
No one at any time ever described it as a stand alone book or experience. If you went in with that kind of expectation I can see how it would be disappointing.
I was told I was getting serial strips and that is what I got. it is all set up so I scored it lower than I would have a nice rounded out book, but it is breath taking and by far the best single issue I have read this week. Douglas Fredericks kicks its ass, but then Joe Kelly didn't write anything here and it ain't a comic either.
