Wednesday Comics

Various artists (DC)


Wednesday Comics is a callback to when Sunday newspaper strips took up an entire page and were actual works of art in term of graphics and storytelling. The book is a homage to that format, with various artists and writers re-imaging superheroes like Superman and Batman (along with some of their more obscure counterparts) in the full-page, Sunday strip style. While it’s an interesting experiment, the stories are hit or miss. The ones that work best take advantage of the format and really make each page work as its own instalment in an ongoing serial.
