I'd've bought it if I'd known it was totally stand-alone.
Dark Horse and other companies should promote more of their established series to new readers by reprinting an issue or one-shot at a lower than normal cover price (dare I say $1?). I've tried random issues of stuff from my LCS' dollar bin, and often it leads to me buying up the trades if I like the sample. Fear Agent and The End League, for example, are both books I've bought up on the strength of a single issue in the cheapo bin that didn't even make much sense taken out of context but make me want to know more.
This one-shot reminded me of the Hellboy FCBD issue, which is what make me think of that. I think Vertigo's $1 issues really pay off for them.
