In VOLUME ONE the Sundays are reproduced microscopically, shrunk onto 1 page, with the panels from the vertical format newspaper page rearranged to fit the horizontal format.

In my opinion it's downright bizarre how IDW awkwardly squeezed in the banner, which is obviously three panels wide. I think it would be simpler to keep the 'four rows of three panels' format from the newspaper, and print two rows with the banner on one page, and two rows with the date line on the next page, with each panel almost twice the size.

I don't understand IDW's decision to reproduce the Sunday pages so small that they are unreadable in this otherwise handsome series.

I hope with this discussion to encourage the publisher to switch the Sunday strips to a 2-page format in future volumes.
