These books are so very important. They might not be for the direct market and the typical fan of DC Comics and that’s totally fine. These take place in their own continuity so nothing is being disrupted. These graphic novels reach a different, younger audience, getting them hooked on these iconic characters at a younger age. I wish I had books like these when I was a kid. I’m going to be looking into these for my own kids, but based on the talent assembled, I’m going to be reading them myself.
