Wednesday Comics (DC Comics)

#6 hits stands this week



Six weeks ago, DC Comics unleashed one of the most ingenious ideas to hit the stands in years. While publishers everywhere are rushing to make books smaller, digital and more portable, DC boldly released Wednesday Comics, a giant-ass newspaper-sized collection of superhero comic strips by some of today's biggest stars. This delightful format pays tribute to the proud-yet-dying tradition of the Sunday comics section of the newspaper, but as the name suggests, it is released on Wednesdays with the rest of the week's new books. The 12-issue weekly publication not only gives us some writer/artist dream teams, it allows creators to play with under-used DC characters (like Paul Pope's Adam Strange, or Neil Gaiman and Mike Allred's Metamorpho). Though not every strip is a winner, there's definitely a lot of fun on these pages, and they are fun to read. Wednesday Comics #6 hits stands this week.
