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.
