-THE TRUE INDIGNITY OF DC’S 3D COVERS
The motion covers are a blatant gimmick, sure, but the effect is actually fairly impressive and I didn’t mind spending the extra dollar on issues that I was on the fence about otherwise because OOH LOOK SHINY THING. I started reading comics regularly in the mid-’90s, so chromium foil-stamped embossed holographix lenticular acetate covers must still hold a place in my heart. The first week had more than enough 3D covers for every issue. The second week I was able to get what I needed, but if I’d shown up an hour later they might have been sold out already. This week you may notice that there are no DC Villains Month comics being reviewed. This is because there were no 3D covers left of the books I would’ve bought, and without the gimmick I came to my senses and realized that I may not actually want to read a Dial E comic book. Next week’s comics will be missing Secret Society and Black Adam for the same reason. I’m willing to buy a potentially subpar comic sometimes if it doubles as gimmicky art. Without that? No way.
I guess what I’m saying is that brains are weird and don’t work the right way.
