  1. Does Mark Waid live outside of time in some sort of pocket dimension? When does he have time do all this stuff?

  2. Waid makes me want to read this and so does the price. Maybe I will give it a try

  3. I didn’t realize that this was only a limited series. Kinda bummed out for that.

  4. I am so looking forward to this one.  Ruse was the best Crossgen series…here’s hoping that the magic is still there. 

  5. Picked this up on a whim and was severely impressed. I never read any of the old Crossgen titles, but if they were all as fresh and fun as this I may have missed out. Great first issue.

  6. Was between this and Xombi for my POTW, both comics I didn’t pick up until after Wednesday… In the end, this only just won out because it was exactly the right tone of story I needed this week.

    JUst good fun comics.
