Nice! Well, I guess someone sometime had to make a comic book to get me excited. Used to be, that was a lot of books until publishers thought grim, dark, gritty, and diversity without thought or effort was the way to go.

I passed because of the price, and the artwork was subpar.

Price does seem to be too much for a lot of people.
