So, I finally ventured out to the comic book store because I wanted to buy issue 1. But they only had the $12.99 variant cover issue, so I just decided to buy that anyway because I'd probably just get both the variant and the regular anyway if they had both of them. But since now I only have the variant cover issue, still wrapped in the packaging, should I open it or wait until I get the regularly priced normal cover issue?
EDIT: Well, I decided to open my variant anyway, even though it would probably be worth a lot of money if I hadn't. This is the greatest comic I've ever read.
I'm surprised that the consensus is #2 was better than #1.
I thought #2 was so stupidly contrived and forced - there's nothing there. The characters and events do whatever Millar wants them to do. He wants him to lose - he loses. Wants him to win - he wins.
I thought it was bobbins. Part of me wonders if this series will wimp out and go straight from "origin" to "new world" and end with future Kick-*** being rescued by a bunch of superheroes he's 'inspired', and skip over how the world came out and the process. I dunno - I can see what's trying to be done here, but I think it's just too shallow. :?
But if people like it - I suppose that's what matters.
