No "Awake" GN for me--that show was a huge rip-off!
I'll be happy to read that Superman story when it comes out in TPB. But an "Awake" GN? No way! I was badly burned by the show, which turned out to be a case of people being so darn "creative" that they didn't notice (or care) that their creation contradicted itself and made zero sense. I know this is water under the bridge, but Killen's "exit interview" in Entertainment Weekly had three statements that together totally undermined the premise of the show:
1. [quoting Killen] "He was absolutely a man who had survived a car accident and lost one or the other of the people closest to him and created another world to correct that damage. That was 100 percent the rules of the game as far as we were concerned.”
2. "Killen hadn’t committed to how the series would ultimately end. The show’s producers all had their own pet theories, but nothing was written in stone."
3. [quoting Killen] "Britten is not a psychic detective."
Oooookay, we have some problems here. If one world is real and the other isn't, but you haven't committed to which is which, then they both have to behave similarly--there can't be anything conclusively real or unreal about either one, and there's no mystery for viewers to try to solve. And what about things like Dr. Evans having Britten read aloud a passage from the Constitution (I think it was) that he had never memorized? Didn't that prove that the green/blue world was real? Moreover, if only one world is real and Britten isn't psychic, how could it be that _each_ world provided clues to help him with cases in the other? How would the real world provide clues to help him solve an imaginary case he had made up---especially when the clue related to something he had already "seen"?
I had watched the show religiously, but after reading that interview, I was glad it had been cancelled and felt ripped off on the 13 hours I had spent watching it. If anyone reading this watched the show and hadn't yet decided what to make of it, or whether it was good or bad--well, now you know.
