  1. As a longtime reader of Hard Case paperbacks, this comic looks great to me. Unfortunately, $5 is too steep. I’ll have to pass.

  2. the hard case comics are $4.00 for the regular cover. Only the alternate covers go for $5.00. The publisher is going to kill their series with beautiful alternate covers that all the news sites are p[astering up. Oh look at all these prints of the same comic that will make you broke if you decide to get them all.
