Just wanted to chime in and see what you guys think of DC's WED Comics line that's started last week.

Personally I think it's one of the coolest things comics have done in a long time and I like the pairing of the characters with a majority of their creative teams.

My only complaint is the price. At $4 bucks, and yes I'm rounding it up a penny from it's $3.99 cover price, I feel it might be a tad pricey. That's just nit picking though.

Don't you get something like 60+ pages of comics though?

no, you get 8 pages or 16 1 page stories in newspaper size. you should check it out.

That doesn't sound like a bad deal really. If there are 8 actual pages, that's 32 "pages" of comics. And in a huge format.

I'd love to check it out. I'd also love for someone to make the drive to my LCS to get it for me. I only get down there about once every 3 months.

It is not over-priced, though the thought crossed my mind. I got #2 yesterday with #1 on order as it sold out here in Montana.

Hi-white newpaper, excellent quality of story, and you know there is something remarkable about unfolding that sucker and it's amost four times the size of a normal comics page. For an example of how to use this new format properly and make an impression, check out Gaimin/Allred's Metamorpho page...the splash panel is GIGANTIC.
This is the IMAX of comics.

First thing my daughter saw when we sat on the front porch reading it, the page just randomly opened to his story and she exclaimed "CHE-E-EEEEKS!" yes my daughter is that cool.

The Metamorpho story is my favorite so far, followed by Flash, and then so on. Everything else is awesome too.

I love how at the bottom of the 2nd Metamorpho story they have the Metamorpho Fan Club kids saying how he is the coolest character ever, haha.

i actually didnt pick this up, the idea of having to storage, basically a newspaper was too annoying to me.......
