DC have been killing it lately with their range of awesome, enjoyable “Digital First” comics. That range is getting a little less awesome and enjoyable at the end of the year, with the cancellation of Batman ‘66 and Sensation Comics.

Marvel's new Project Gamma is the answer to a pretty simple question: What if comics had their own soundtracks?
