Wednesday Comics is coming to your LCS Amazing Fantasy in July! 12 weeks of glorious sunday comics sized super hero comics for your enjoyment! I've included the original solicitation information from DC here, in case you missed it the first time around. I highly recommend you sign up for this series! It's going to be Amazing! The Superman strips will be serialized in USA Today. Pretty damn cool, isn't it? You really DON'T want to miss this!!!! I hope everyone decides to give it a try!!! The reason I mention it today is because it is all over the comics news sites since the whole USA Today announcement hit today, and that reminded me that I should start pushing it NOW before the book ships. This is going to be hot, beautiful and a MUST READ imo. I expect every single one of you reading this to get your very own copy, at least try #1. Just look at the following list of A-list talent contributing to this project! It will look like Comic Shop News, so each page will be folded in 4. The folded comic will fit nicely in a bag and board. They couldn't ship this baby flat, could they? Shipping costs alone would make this an unfeasible project. I'm curious how they are going to collect these issues, after the 12 issues are over. Maybe they won't. Don't take a chance, just buy the individual issues. Summertime fun awaits!!!


In July, DC Comics gives a fresh twist to a grand comics tradition with WEDNESDAY COMICS, a new, weekly 12-issue series by some of the greatest names in comics today!
WEDNESDAY COMICS is unique in modern comics history: Reinventing the classic weekly newspaper comics section, it is a 16-page weekly that unfolds to a sprawling 28" x 20" tabloid-sized reading experience bursting with mind-blowing color, action and excitement, with each feature on its own 14" x 20" page.
Spearheaded by DCU Editorial Art Director Mark Chiarello, whose past editing credits include BATMAN BLACK & WHITE, DC: THE NEW FRONTIER and SOLO, each page of WEDNESDAY COMICS spotlights the continuing adventures of DC heroes, including:
