It's over ... or is it?
That wraps up DC FIFTY-TOO, a huge thanks to everyone who participated and everyone who spread the word and left comments - it's terrifically appreciated. I hope everyone's had as much fun with it as I had, this was a blast. (I also hope DC sees some of these mock covers and realizes what kind of talent is sitting here just aching to work on some of their less-attended-to properties).
So, is this end of DC FIFTY-TOO? Well, yes ... of the first round. What's a month of solicitations without a second month of solicitations? Stay tuned come Monday for some second issues, awesome variant covers, and some all-new number ones from folks who weren't in on the first 52.
In the interim, looking at all 52 covers delivered so far, here's what impresses me the most: All of these fabricated titles look like so much fun to read. There is not a single title here which looks like a slog, or like it takes itself too seriously, it all looks so eminently accessible and enjoyable and there's not a one I wouldn't read if it were real (and a few I'll regret to my dying day aren't real titles). I enjoyed the heck out of this project so far, I hope you all did too, and here's looking forward to the next round!
