First off, let's talk about the format. This is on a modified Newsprint that feels sturdier than your average newspaper, but is very different from regular comics. The pages are big, impressive, and clear, but the lack of any binding can make reading it a bit annoying. Now, on to the actual comics within! They're a very mixed bag. Some are great starts to serial features, others feel short and unsatisfying. The Batman feature by Azzarello/Risso looks good, but it's just a generic page of Batman and Gordon talking about a kidnapping with no ransom demands, followed by the kidnapped man being killed. The Kamandi segment by Gibbons/Sook, though, is fantastic. My favorite page in the comic, very much in the vein of Prince Valiant, with an epic, sweeping feel. The Superman page, by Arcudi/Bermejo, looks nice, but has a very thin plot of Superman fighting a random alien, and is the only page in the comic that FEELS like one page. One of the weakest feature in the comic. Deadman, by Dave Bullock and Vinton Heuck, is mostly an origin recap before sending Deadman into a rematch with his old enemy The Hook. It's a fun, creepy page with good art. Green Lantern, by Busiek/Quinones, has great art, but a weak start of mostly Carol Ferris and friends whining about Hal while he's caught in a battle in the skies. It's worth mentioning that this seems to be set in the New Frontier era. The Gaiman/Allred Metamorpho page is excellent, with clever scripting and great, crisp art by two of comics' most original talents. Unfortunately, it's opposite from an incoherent Teen Titans page by Berganza and Galloway. Galloway's designs may have been good, but his actual art is very weird, unclear, and grotesque at points. The plot has the TT fighting Trident, who rants a lot and then stabs Miss Martian. I think. Adam Strange, by Paul Pope, is another highlight, as Pope brings his unique look and quirky writing to a story of an alien invasion that happens way too early in the morning for Adam. Supergirl, by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner, feels like the kids' feature of the lot, as Supergirl tries to pet-sit a rambunctious Krypto and Streaky. A fun strip with great art. The Metal Men page by Didio and Garcia-Lopez is surprisingly good, with Didio having a good handle on Doc Magnus and the Metal Men as they try to foil a bank robbery, with fun, kinetic art. Wonder Woman, by Ben Caldwell, has the most panels of any of the strips, but is a bit of a mess. The story of a teenage Wonder Woman dreaming about man's world and encountering an odd trio of insane Oracles has promise, but it needs to focus and become a bit clearer to work. The nine-panel Sgt. Rock comic written by Andy Kubert with art by Joe Kubert is a master at work, at least art-wise. Wish he had done the whole thing, though. Karl Kershl handles the Flash page, which is split between Barry and Iris, as Barry battles Grodd while trying to get home to an irate Iris. A good start to this feature. The Catwoman/Demon feature, by Simonson/Stelfreeze, has a great start, with Catwoman going on a date with Jason Blood while scheming to rob one of his artifacts. And the issue ends with a beautiful Kyle Baker Hawkman page, told literally from a birds-eye view. There's some stunning art here, but only about half the features really excited me to see what comes next week. The talent gap is kind of amazing, and makes the whole thing look kind of irregular. There's no way Gaiman/Allred should be sharing a comic with Berganza/Galloway. But it's an intriguing start, and I look forward to seeing how it develops.
