Dr. Fate, Countdown to Mystery, and More Pain Comics?

Thursday, May 29, 2008

Interestingly, if you click over to Amazon you'll see they have the title of Dr. Fate: Countdown to Mystery listed as "Dr. Fate: More Pain Comics."

Anyone know what that's about?

UPDATE: Seems that's the name of the first issue of the series. Still, seems an inopportune Amazon listing ...

  1. Just for clarification, that's also the name of Dr. Fate's storyarc that stretches from the first issue to the last. The first issue has a subtitle of "More Pain Comics: Part One" all the way to "More Pain Comics: Part Eight".

  2. I don't want to prejudge without reading the story, but that seems a mighty strange name for a story. Makes me think I'll be in pain reading it! *grin*

  3. I assume it was intended as a parody of More Fun Comics, the title in which the original Fate made his first appearance way back when.
