This series had my attention before I saw that Before Watchmen debuted yesterday. Image Comics has released a magazine. Basically, the two comics features are at the front (American Muscle, then Triggergirl 6) then the interviews, essays, etc. I didn't like that format. Someone could still do the "five minute read" then skip all the words. Maybe readers will see the Gaiman interview or see the real-life cosplay babe in the Triggergirl costume.

The stories: AM is post-apocalyptic and having survivors roaming to a new destination. TG6 is about an operative carrying out a mission. TG6 has an action sequence involving our heroine and airplanes. IMO, both stories aren't great in the art or plot department in some ways, but I want to see where these stories go next month.

I appreciated the effort to bring us a magazine, but the magazine format needs tweaks. The non-comics stuff should've been spread out. The page design varies from feature to feature. Maybe page design experts would complain, but I read so many EGM and GamePro mags from the 90s that it didn't bother me.

I did check out Cerebus' thread http://the-w.com/thread.php/id=28280 which was very helpful, but I'm also looking for some individual attention. Below is a post I made on another comic book board, but I'd like to get The W's take:
