Some more info on this comic book... I was in my local store today. I have been reading comics since I was a kid and never gave up the habit... :)
Here is what I was told:
1. The first issue releases on Jan 21st.
2. There will be variant covers (if you collect that sort of thing). So far it appears that there will not be any rare variants.
3. This book is being promoted fairly poorly. The guy at the comic store said he had not heard of it, but would order it for me based on my interest. He said I was literally the first person he has talked to about it.
4. I was told it was good that I came in and asked. As a result he will stock, and he is ordering me all variant covers. He said that as of of this morning there is no in store promotional material planned/available.
If you want this one, please make sure you ask. The ongoing series only happens if the 5 issue mini series does well. Pass the word and order it for yourself.
