Things are rough these days at DC Comics, but a few summers ago, there was something special to look forward to every single Wednesday from the formerly stalwart company. DC recruited a bunch of stellar talents, let them loose on characters both obscure and well known, and put them to work in a format that had never quite been attempted before.

It came folded up like a conventional newspaper. Once you unfurled it, it was like the big, full color, Sunday comics. Only on each giant sheet, we got a single page a week from 15 big stories, told in serial format. Usually with a cliffhanger on each page.

It was fun, it was new, it was retro, it was perhaps the greatest experiment with sequential art in recent memory.
