Default Did reading the Countdown series....

enhance the emotional impact of the trailer? Knowing some back story I think made things more intense viewing the trailer for me. I mean I think it still would have rocked not knowing it. What about you guys? Also views from folks who have not yet read the comics would be interesting. But if ya read it lets not spoil it for those who haven't.

Yes.

Nero's rage("FIRE EVERYTHING!!!") in the trailer affects me 10 times more now after reading Countdown 1 and 2.

I could very well understand where Nero was coming from and why he was so angry in the trailer. Also, the planet we see blowing up in the new trailer, I wouldn't have known what it is if I hadn't been familiar with the comic books.

The comics didn't affect my impression of the trailer because we're only half-way through the prequel. The trailer was most impressive on its own, as intended. It might gain some deeper level after I read issue #4 to complete the backstory, but for now the trailer was highly effective on its own.
