The idea behind some of the new 52 titles was to spotlights different corners of the DC Universe that were never highlighted before. Sadly, here we're given an incomprehensible mess. The first arc involving Sgt. Rock made little to no sense. Most of the rest of the book involved throw away tales or misplaced ones (Frankenstein). The art was decent but not spectacular. The book's individual covers were fantastic but overall the book was pretty forgettable. Just not worth the time.
Why does the nook version cost more than the physical book?
