Weird Worlds #1
The 3 stories in this anthology fall into one or more of these categories: garbage, waste of paper, insultingly bland rip-off of one of their own better characters. Actually, all 3 manage to hit at least two of those.
So I won't waste any time except to say that there are some great sci-fi/speculative fiction comics being made basically everywhere except here in the United States and distributed by--most notably--the 2000AD and Soleil imprints as well as many others, and I urge readers to check them out if they get the chance. This book, a half-hearted but probably legally-required turd of a comic, is a step backwards even for DC as well as their Wednesday Comics experiment showed what people like Paul Pope and others can do when given a little room in an anthology format.
Shame should be heaped on everyone involved here.
