I started buying Wednesday Comics when the single issues came out just because of the Metamorpho stories. I really hated the paper stock and dropped it after 2 issues. Really wanna pick this up.

It looks like a good buy. My only question is whether or not it's essential reading. Is it canon? Is it extremely relevant to the mainstream comics? All of the Wednesday Comics look excellent. But those are the questions I have about them.

Great review, guys. I'm tempted to buy this trade but... it's pricey, really pricey. It's worth the investment, though.

Someday this will be mine, just you now,  Not now.
50 bucks!  dang.  But eventually.
 
Lucky me my birthday is next month!

I had never heard of Wednesday Comics before. Always nice to learn about something new. I'm rather impressed at just how large they published it to the original size. They could of gone a lot smaller and saved on production costs. They really knew who their audience was.
 
This publication kind of reminds me of how Japanese mangas are released in Japan. We are more familiar with the collected volumes, but in Japan. Mangas are published in weekly magazine, sometimes monthly; and it will have about eighteen pages from several different series. Shounen Weekly alone has One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, and a few other series are in the very same magazine. A few months later, a collection of the individual series will be separated into volumes.

One thing I noticed. G-man seemed reluctant to hand over that book to Babs. lol 
 
Is the online retailer the one that Wonder Woman would probably try first?

Since the 1970's I have always pronounced "Kamandi", "KaMANdi", not "KaMONdi", either I was saying it wrong for 35 years or Babs is saying it wrong. What is the correct pronounciation?  Even G-Man says, "Ka-MAN-di, very confusing.
 
Great review, I passed on the single "issues" of this, because I  knew they were going to somehow trade it but loved the art in them. I'm a huge fan of retro DC and this has it. It's got a pricey cover but looks worth it.

Ive been saying they should do a segment on how to pronounce those confusing names of people and places
#18 Posted by ArtisticNeedham (2267 posts) - - Show Bio
@goldenkey: 
Mjolnir (pronounced /ˈmjɒlnɪər/ -neer
Kamandi
Ras al Ghul
Any others?
 
That could be a fun segment or article.
 
So adding up all the newspaper comics equals 50 bucks, plus additional pages and stories.
Sound good.  I stopped getting them because it was hard to unfold and read and refold, and no place to store it.  So I stopped and hoped they would put it all together in one book.

Got this for my birthday this is a definite buy  
 
great stories and you can get it for ~ 30 bucks on amazon

#20 Posted by ImperiousRix (1050 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow, this looks so neat!  But 50 bucks?  Gonna need to save up for that. 
Still, it seems like not only a great trade, but just plain cool.
