...John Byrne's "The Last Galactus Story" before. I know I'm far from the only aging Bronze Age comics nerd who still remembers the bitter disappointment that came with learning that EPIC Illustrated had been cancelled due to slumping sales.

Zack Snyder's cut of the Justice League Snyder Cut movie reviews
What they're sort've saying:
Empire – "...superior to its 2017 counterpart..."
Msn / Inc – "...the fact that WarnerMedia decided to make the film at all was an incredible win for its brand. It told DC Comics fans that the studio was invested in those characters in the same way Disney is invested in all things Marvel.... "
Yahoo News – "It’s not just the ridiculous run time that makes the movie a beast to watch. Despite additional villain and hero cameos that will certainly have fans cheering, the original movie’s problems remain relevant. The story’s overarching Mother Box MacGuffins are even more confusing than before, and the same campy dad jokes abound. Additional scenes meant to personalize newer characters like Flash and Aquaman are awkward and unnecessary..."
Deadline Hollwood – "Fanboy heaven or hell. Which is it? ...After all the sturm und drang and untold millions lost on a seemingly cursed film that hardly anyone liked, the emergence of Justice League in this new form represents something akin to a resurrection..."
CNET – "...isn't worth the three-year wait or the four-hour slog."
Variety – "The new movie — and make no mistake, it really is a new movie — is more than a vindication of Snyder’s original vision. It’s a grand, nimble, and immersive entertainment, a team-of-heroes origin story that, at heart, is classically conventional, yet it’s now told with such an intoxicating childlike sincerity and ominous fairy-tale wonder that it takes you back to what comic books, at their best, have always sought to do"
DC goes to $6 per title
...it appears that prices are going up without a corresponding increase in page count. Solicitations for Batman #109 for June, and for The Joker #3 and #4, are now $5.99... Also joining the $5.99-for-40-pages price point in May is Superman Red & Blue with #3 (previously 48 pages for $5.99), and in June, Wonder Woman: Black White And Gold #1.
