It's an important comic, but it's very much a mid-80s comic.

That's my impression now.  Also the first 100 pages is just the same thing over and over.  Random characters defending Monitor's devices, and saying stupid things.  Does it get any better?

It's been a while since I read it and it didn't leave much of an impression, so no, I suppose. :^)

I forced my way through that once.

Maybe we should get our hopes up for this one.

I love Andy Kubert and Scott Snyder has mentioned that he's involved behind the scenes and I'm a bit of a fanboy...so I'll be picking it up.

So my friend is doing some fundraising at a booth at Salt Lake Comic-Con.  I was thinking about having an activity where kids can decorate a small piece of paper, then we'll turn it into a pin-back button.  I was also thinking about getting some clearance comics that the kids could use to make a collage for their button.

Would that be some sort of sacrilege?  Is that bad taste at a comic convention?  Is it akin to defacing art or flag burning?

That sounds awesome! Raid those dollar bins and get some buttons made!
(Speaking of Comic-Cons, anyone doing Rose City? Come see me! At table J3. I'll talk your ear off about my new Kickstarter.)

Any issues that people have with it are their own problem. My own included, haha - it sounds like a lot of fun and I would love to see the results but the deep, dark nerd part of my brain cries out in Comic Book Guy terror.  :P

Just check Ebay first to make sure you're not dicing up a valuable comic. :^)

Personally,  I'd have a problem with it. I don't really approve of the gratuitous destruction of a book for any reason, even a comic book.

Plus you'd probably get more paper to work with if you picked up by picking up the same dollar amount of Sunday papers and using the comic section instead.
