24: The Comic Book

The show may be on an interminable hiatus, but it looks like 24 is going to be hitting the comic stands this July. I'm a bit wary of each page equalling a half-hour of real time, but on the plus side, a 48-page limit should cut down on unnecessary subplots. In the end, with such a fast pace, I suppose this will be more like a story set over a day than full real-time action, but I can't complain about more Jack Bauer.

I can complain about the price, though. $7 for 48 pages? That's steep. But if IDW's smart, they'll get this in Borders and other mainstream bookstores, so as to reach the millions of 24 fans who don't happen to fall into a comic book shop.
