  1. well at least it passed into the triple digits.

    This is a good book people give it a shot.

    It was equal page length stories
    and one is written by Gray and Palmiotti.

    I worry about this book’s survival along with All Star Western another amazing book that not enough people are reading.

    • I’d be more apt to recommend it if it weren’t for the terrible use of bad 3D/CGI for the ships and things. It just cheapened the whole experience unnecessarily and looked really bad. The backup story didn’t go that route and was far better off for it. It was OK, I enjoyed it despite itself and I want to read more but it just doesn’t have the quality overall I’d hoped for.

    • There is no back up. Both stories get equal page lengths. So even if you aren’t liking Krul’s story you have an equally long story by Gray and Palmiotti. I’m incredibly partial to Gray and Palmiotti though, I haven’t read something by them that I haven’t loved yet.

  2. I’m really enjoying this book (and All-Star Western)… A lot more than I thought I would, actually. I’m a bit concerned about its longevity, but I guess all we can do is wait and see.

  3. This comic had some really awful Photoshop effects.

    • It isn’t Photoshop in all cases, they are actually using 3D models (bad 3D models) in many instances. All vehicles, the guns, and a bunch of other things. If you look closely at the guns they are exactly the same and do not blend with the art at all. This comic showcases all that is wrong with the current mindset of DC (and Marvel as well). They want digital libraries of items and people and environments so that they can slap together this garbage quickly and without even needing to pay an artist (well, a skilled one) and they think it is acceptable.

      Cully Hamner has said as much directly publicly already. This is the result. It isn’t acceptable to me and is a disgrace. I won’t be buying another copy of this because to support this in any way is a crime. The second story/backup is actually pretty good and even though it has way over-used digital zip-a-tone at least there is some art with merit in it and a decent tale. This book makes me weep for the future of comics.
