So is this a reprint of the first graphic novel, or is it just issue 1 with a bonus story?

I was confused about this too so I had to go look up the solicitation. It sounds like it's a reissue of the first issue with a bonus story. It's a little weird when the covers on this depict different events from each of the first four issues.

That's such a eh decision. Feels kind of crappy that a bonus story is gonna be stuck in a release of a issue that already has had numerous reprints. If they were gonna do a 5th anniversary issue, feels like they should've either went bigger with it, or just did a unique one shot with unique stories in it, with Issue 1's reprint being the bonus (IE - how Archie's landmark issues used to handle it).

Yeah, I agree. I think this should have just been their free comic book day offer for next year if anything. First issue + new story is a great way to hook new people I think, but this comes off as milking people already invested in the comic.

Which I suppose isn't surprising with comics in general at this point.
