Agreed. I thought it was a cool read, too. I liked the timeline, how it jumped back and forth a bit.
But I was actually turned off by the 55 variant covers. That's just too many for me. I din't know about them until I picked mine up and the shop owner told me. Kind of a cool idea, and I understand why they did it, but to me it's just frustrating as a completionist to know I'll never have them all.
