DC Comics is relaunching their line in September, starting over with 52 new #1 issues. It's a bid to attract new readers and invigorate older ones. To publicize this event, many retailers across the country were open at midnight for the release of Justice League #1.

My local comic store - Up Up and Away in Cheviot - kicked things off at 11:08PM last night with a 52 minute sale. It was better attended than I thought it would be, but then, maybe most of these folks didn't have their alarms set for 6AM. Oh well, what's a little lost sleep where funnybooks are involved?

You can't sleep here...go home, Matt!

I have those same pajama pants. Well, not those exact same pants. That would be weird. But I have a pair just like them.

I was just about to comment that those look like the kind of pants Carlin would wear!

I thought if you and another friend of mine that reads/ collects comics when I heard about the relaunches today on NPR. I wondered what a diehards reaction would be. Thanks for the info, story.
