I've never bought Fallen Angel before because, well, I didn't even know the book existed until issue 7 or so and then couldn't find back issues so didn't bother jumping on since I had no idea what was going on. BUUUUUT... I DO know Sachs and Violins and will DEFINATELY be picking it up because of them so I hope they are integral to the story and not just in it for a panel or two cameo.
Oh, and the George Perez cover certainly will get me to pick up an extra copy just to drool on.... ; )!
You know, now that I think of it, DC did the same thing with The Monolith, another book I never heard of before. A friend of mine was telling me how good it is and I was like, 'WOW! Phil Winslade art? I'm there!" Then he proceeded to tell me they're up to issue 10 and it's cancelled at #12.
Nice going DC. Promote the doody out of books that sell themselves like Green Lantern: Rebirth (You'd have to be dead to not know about that one) or Jim Lee and Brian Azzarello's garbage-stink Superman but don't let the readers out there know about books like Monolith or Fallen Angel.
You know, I remember the days when DC did these neat, eye catching house ads in the 70's to alert readers of new comics coming out. Whatever happened to the good old days?
