Greatest Hits #1 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Greatest Hits #1, about which I write the following sentences: "The art here, by Glenn Fabry, is cleaner than his usual style. His lines are more open than usual, and his figures less chiseled. It's quite good stuff all around, though, and he's just about the perfect guy for this particular job. But it's not a great first issue, story-wise. It's got more than a little bit of potential, but while the best Vertigo first issues end with strong hooks, 'Greatest Hits' #1 ends with the lads being rushed by a crowd of exuberant fans. It's hardly a surprise of any sort, given the high-concept of the series, and it's an example of the kind of trap this comic can easily fall into. Okay, it's the Beatles as superheroes, but then what?"
