Interesting, it is $5 and 40 pages and it is a sourcebook or is it a series of sourcebooks (it has a #1 on the cover)?

EDIT: Not the cover, the DC promotion says: "THE LAST GOD: TALES FROM THE BOOK OF AGES #1"

As someone who is a comic book geek before a gaming geek, some educated speculation: it sounds like it's formatted (trim and page count) like a standard comic book; the higher page count and corresponding price point is common for "one-shots" like this (which still often have "#1" on the cover because #1s always sell better). This is part of DC's "Black Label," so it might be a little better quality printing than their standard books (i.e. maybe square bound, card stock cover, slightly different dimensions, etc.). Not that they would hesitate to do a #2 later if it sells well, of course.
 

If you need inspiration to be creative then you have to open your mind and allow even craziest ideas. Some ideas started as april fools or jokes and later they become reality, for example some Star Wars products or the crossover The Ring-The Grudge.

And the first steps for some new players sometimes are children playing their favorite cartoon shows in TTRPG where the DMs are their parents. Suggesting a d20 version of Hasbro franchises isn't a so fool idea.

* About this comic my opinion is a good idea, but it will be a awesome flufh (lore/background) but the crunch will be worse. I am afair the racial traits of the new PC races will be not interesting or enough right balance of power.

If this works, DC, Marvel, Valiant and others would dare to publish their own settings as a 3PP, and this would be nice, but experience has to teach us what is the right key. Maybe some forgotten characters could find a new opportunity as part of these future settings.

..Or some some "big fish" would dare to buy some TTRPG publisher, for that about not all the eggs in one basket only.
