What a great idea for a one-shot. The only thing that turns me off is Ash getting all bored while watching Murnau's Nosferatu. It's such a brilliant movie! Well, I'm still getting this nonetheless. As for the writer commentary: Great idea, we should see this more often, especially for number ones.
I was planning on checking out the first issue of this. Francavilla cover looks fantastic as usual.
It does look like a Francavilla cover but it's not - it's a David Mack! You should check out the other (variant) covers, too. Link. They all look pretty neat; especially the Darwyn Cooke and Fiona Staples variants for issue #1.
I love the new look/suit of SM! This is the one Valiant title that I've been reading since the very first issue since the big relaunch. There have been a few ups and downs, story-wise, and I really hope it's going to be more consistent again. SM is such an interesting character. He deserves good stories and I think Peter Milligan is a good fit as writer. We'll see!
WOW! Nowhere Men is still out there?!? I'm pleasantly surprised. Unfortunately I seem to have missed issues 4 and 5 in the meantime. How come this comic was off the radar for even longer than Saga and Hawkeye?
