    But why is this only one issue? Dollar Bill deserves a 12-issue Prestige Format maxi-series!

    ShadowMax: Has anyone actually verified this is the real Steve Wacker?

    Me: Quick Steve, tell us something only Steve Wacker would know.

    Steve Wacker: [The Marvel relaunch] secretly is a reboot.

    Me: If you mean the continuity won't match up with any of the preceding issues, anyone could have predicted that.

    I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that Rude has been diagnosed with depression and has had to seek help for it in the past. Not trying to excuse his actions but I'm also not ready to accept one police incident report at face value, either.

    His book also deserves to be called (BE)FOUR DOLLAR BILLS, since that's what it will cost!

    They should introduce a bank-robber archnemesis for Dollar Bill named Cream who gets the money by incapacitating the guards with a viscous white fluid. And the title of the first story could be "Cash Rules Everything Around Me."

    It continues to sicken me, how people try to press their "values" on others.

    Kudos to DC for giving The Rude Dude more work. Give Billy Tucci more work as well and I'd be ecstatic.
    Right, because I shouldn't wanna read a good/great comic book. But How do you know it's "CRAP", if you aren't reading it?

    No, what's sad, is that you expect people to feel the same way about a book, that you do.

    How fucking hard is it, to read ONE GRAPHIC NOVEL? It's not like there's this longstanding series dedicated to the WM.

    It's pretty jarring when one remembers that Wein was the original editor Watchman.

    Don't you think there's a real danger of over-saturation? Plus this is a few years after the movie, which didn't excite anyone after the fact. I'd think more casual consumers would be really overwhelmed looking at 7+ trades instead of just one complete package.
