And it looks like Steve Rude is doing a New Gods story for it...according to Bleeding Cool here; http://www.bleedingcool.com/2011/01/14/sequel-to-wednesday-comics-from-dc-coming-steve-rude-contributing-new-gods-story/

I'm all about this, I loved the first Wednesday Comics run.

Why are the original issues so much better than the collected hardcover?

I was not a fan of the format of the individual issues.

But I love the hardcover.

I bought both, but buying the singles was to support the project. The HC is for the readin' …

Yay times infinity. The first WC is probably my fave thing that DC has ever done.

I agree. The singles were better.

Then again, I have those bound in a monster of a book.

I'm hoping for no creator repeats, outside of maybe Pope. Oh, and I want to see Canete have a story, possibly continuing the Creeper one that he did in case a fill-in was needed.

Didn't Evan Dorkin have a Plastic Man story?

:no: It has US Ape by Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca.

I assume he's getting some kind of tactile pleasure out of the folded up newsprint, but the hardcover seemed like the better deal. It was comparably priced to the single issues and featured two extra one-page stories: The Creeper by Keith Giffen & Eric Canete and Plastic Man by Evan Dorkin & Stephen DeStefano. Plus, no Robot Chicken ads.

This is my only regret, but I still love having something this gorgeous at the original size, with everything in the order and on the paper I originally read it.

I bought the issues (LCS sold them to me cheap), but I'd love to buy the HC as well.

Great news, except that it should have been an ongoing to begin with. :D

Its projects like this which is why I'm glad Mark Chiarello got promoted. He has spearheaded my favorite projects from DC, this, Batman Black &White, Solo, New Frontier.

Remember the Mister Miracle Special from the mid-eighties that Steve Rude did? If this New Gods strip looks anything like that book, DC has sold me again on this.

Considering how much people spend every day on cigarettes and coffee, I don't think $3 a week is bad at all. I'm sure I could find a way to cover that.

As much as I loved that comic, both for the content and for the experience, I'd pay up to 6 bucks an issue every week, easy.

The hardcover is better for one real reason: the paper is white.

The choice of gray paper was stupid. Artists have been working with white paper for so long, that they didn't take that into account when coloring the pages, so the art became an ugly, muddy mess.

I hope DC fixes this fiasco by going with a white newsprint stock (it exists!) for volume 2. If not, I might just wait for the collection this time around.

Wasn't it $4 a week? But I'm hoping "Holding the Line at $2.99" will extend to this.

Half the joy of reading WC for me came from the experience of it all, unfolding it, lying on floor, the smell, it really did take me back to Sunday mornings with my grandfather. That said, I fucking love my hardcover, and yes the paper is way better and it's way better for just reading the content, but I'm glad I bought both, for different reasons. For me, one is not better than the other, they're different experiences. And I'll definitely be getting the 2nd volume in both formats as well.

Excited to read it, but waiting for the collection this time. The only reason I bought the singles before was I didn't know if they'd even collect such an odd (and oddly-shaped) book. I just ended up being sad I couldn't read the 2 extra pages. I also feel pretty confident that the Wonder Woman story looks much nicer on paper that doesn't turn all the colors to mud.

They should allow him greater influence. In my opinion, he seems to be the only guy who knows how to handle DC's artists in innovative and distinctive ways.

I agree with this. I normally follow writers and some artists, but he may be the only editor whose name gets me excited.
