My lcs was supposed to get it today, but he often has problems with his supplier where he doesn't receive some titles the day that they are supposed to get there. Hopefully when he does get them he will have one for me.

I picked up 2 copies of it. it's oversized, I don;t know what to do with them. you need like magazine bags and boards for them

Picked up a couple myself. Thought the same thing. Doesn't look like they'll fit in Golden Age either. Sad

Thinks it will hurt its popularity.

Yeah I have them as well, not sure if I found bags big enough or not...haven't looked at them in years.

Fits nicely in a golden age bag and board. Rusty was not olden age format

Regarding size, I recently found an interview as to possibly why they decided to go this route...

How early in the process did the idea come along to publish these issues in the Golden Age format? Did that change how any of you tackled your portion of the story?

Rossmo: The format didn't change my approach much -- it just gave me more room to move, have bigger panels, etc.

Manning: Honestly, as a rule, I'm not a big fan of oversized books. In this case, however, I'm really excited Riley's art is going to be displayed in a big and glorious fashion. His art is the kind that all but begs for this kind of format.
