2 out of 5
The first few pages of Ennis’ initial Badlands arc. You also get a two page interview with Ennis, a two page interview with Jacen, and a preview of Jamie Delano’s arc which was to follow Garth’s.
So: unlike the very first issue zero for Crossed, which offered exclusive introductory pages, what you’re paying for here is a preview, along with some text. Is that worth your $1.99? Reading it in retrospect (meaning not as hype for something upcoming), I… don’t quite think so, and that’s what that rating means. This should be a free kinda thing. But at least there are extras, and so there’s your extra star.
