A few thoughts:
— It was only a matter of time before they released this one, right? And why now? Because, B&B #28 is officially dated Feb.-March 1960, making it the 60th anniversary of DC’s preeminent superteam. (The issue actually came out at the end of 1959, according to the Grand Comics Database, but hey.) DC will also be publishing a hardcover collection celebrating 60 years of the League in March.
— Yes, this story has been reprinted many times, blah blah blah. But it’s all about the presentation because for four bucks, you get the whole shebang — ads and whatnot. To compare, an original, unslabbed reader copy recently sold on eBay for $1,200.
— As noted, this is one of three Facsimile Editions coming from DC in March. The others? Well, one of them features one of the biggest debuts in comics history. Click here to find out what it is. The third is rather strange. (Click here.)
