Wednesday Comics

I think DC’s Wednesday Comics project sounds really fun. Every week this summer, there’s a new issue—and even though each one sits on the shelf at normal comic-book-size, it actually folds out twice to 28″ × 20″. That is big. Seems like it would feel really exciting to get one in your hands… sit down… slowly unfold it… “Whoah! Batman!”

Each issue has a bunch of stories from various writers and artists. Here’s a peek at Paul Pope’s contribution, starring Adam Strange.

Here’s my beef: Why can’t I order these online? Or subscribe to the whole series? I am reduced to scrounging on Amazon—thin pickings, and all at a hefty markup.

Update: Just caved and called Isotope here in SF. It is an awesome comic shop. Still want to subscribe, though.

Good job calling Isotope –Part of the pleasure of buying monthly comics (or weekly, I guess) is going in and browsing the racks.

You *can* order online, however, from any number of retailers. Mile High Comics is a biggie.

Good points both, matthew. And thanks for the Mile High Comics referral—I should have assumed there was some online comics distributor. I didn’t even bother to search!
