“Was I right about the fifty-second book being another 52? Because that is an awesome idea and I am awesome for having it. Two five page stories each—$1.50 for ten pages featuring background information and character spotlights. Plus—plus—it’s used as a way to break new artists and writers into the industry. Aspiring creators will bring their A+ game in the hopes of moving up to the big leagues. And DC could get a nice chunky backlog of stories in case a regular artist is late…which will happen.”

I still think it’s a good idea. It’s also a nice way to let long-term readers discover where the characters they once loved are now in the new DC universe. Are they heroes? Average Joes just trying to make it in the DCU? Inquiring minds want to know!
