This was a great looking project but not a commercial success. The tabloid size made it unwieldly and hard to sell. The first issue was offered signed and numbered by each
artist. According to Bob Beerbohm "There were two issues of Sojourn which Joe published way back when, when the DM was still young. It's unwieldy size and tendency to fall
over on the racks made it unpopular with those trying to sell it to the public. Joe was beseeched upon to make it magazine size like Barry Smith was with Story Teller a few
years back - both of whom would not listen. Orders dried up, the zines went away - caught in the desire of the artist person to see his work closer in size to the original art,
but not suitable to display for sale" Many copies are signed but not numbered and according to Bob Bailey, a former student, the numbering was considered to have been too
much of a chore but promised signatures were delivered to charter subscribers.
The book bigger than the standard treasury comic, but it's not stapled, making it almost impossible to hold together and read without pages spilling all over the place.
Also, the stories are printed in order of the binding, so instead of having one centerfold in the middle of the book, you have a series of separate four page sheets, and to make
matters even worse, the stories don't follow the order listed on the Table of Contents, which comes on page eight.
