This is a really cool idea for an annual. Actually, it’s a perfect concept: A bunch of short stories about side characters and costars. I’m sure a lot of people would call this “filler,” but this is an annual. It is a giant-size issue that should stand alone and get people interested in reading the series (and let’s be real: The Web series is not that great). It’s also an opportunity to showcase a ton of artists–some of them pretty unknown–since each story is just a few pages–and some are just pin-ups, like this beautiful Charles Vess picture:

No, none of it maters–and it’s not done as well as it should have been, but I really like the idea and some of the stories.
