Well, fudge. Didn't realize it was digital. Also missed the fact that it's Andreyko whose approach to storytelling, continuity, and other creators' characters and stories in MANHUNTER turned me off to not get anything by him again. Guess I won't be getting this after all.

I had forgotten Andreyko was the man behind Manhunter - but am I correct in thinking/hoping he wasn't the one responsible for that atrocious Mark Shaw retcon, which saw Shaw going after the other Manhunter's and killing them in awful ways, and it being revealed that Dumas and other chunks of his John Ostrander series were false, just implants and delusion?
I hated all of that with a passion, one of the worst hatchet jobs on a character that I have ever seen in comics... I felt, and still do, that John Ostrander, Mark Shaw, and his fans, deserved more respect and consideration.

Re:Wonder Woman '77 though the main source of dissapointment for me was the Digital aspect to the page layouts. It made the story feel too fast and slight. I would think this book more than others would benefit from traditional comicbook layouts, but then perhaps it might look and feel too much like a literal recreation of the Wonder Woman comics of the Pre-1986 era rather than the Lynda Carter television series...?
