Batman #1

on September 23, 2011

Another New 52 milestone, another tag-team review. Like we did with Justice League, we’re presenting two opinions on Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman #1. This is one of DC’s highest-selling books in years, but is it worth picking up? — more

Red Hood and the Outlaws #1

Every time I mention to anyone that I’m going to be subscribing to Red Hood and the Outlaws, I get reactions akin to me telling them I’m going to start smoking crack. They think I’m nuts and ask me why I would possibly want to read such limb-lossedness. I gather my thoughts and then calmly and collectedly… jump kick them in the throat.

Well, I suppose I verbally jump kick them in the throat. Really, with this book I’m only interested in the illustration. Kenneth Rocafort’s work is stunning to me and he’s been one of my favorites for years. Man, did he not disappoint. — more

Suicide Squad #1

The supervillain espionage series redefined by John Ostrander in the late 1980s returns under the direction of Adam Glass with Suicide Squad #1. This issue certainly functions as an introductory piece and works best for those unfamiliar with the concept; it’s full of explanations for the identity of Task Force X (better known as The Suicide Squad) and its principal characters. — more

Static Shock #1

I really didn’t like Static Shock. I want to so badly, but Scott McDaniel and John Rozum have created an issue that is not very compelling. It has all the elements of a super-hero comic — flashy costumes, super powers, secret identities, shady organizations, a fight that destroys buildings, a villain so evil his name drips down the page — but they don’t come together in anyway that I found engrossing. — more

Green Arrow #1

The fear with any kind of root-and-branch reboot — or even the “some roots, some branches” soft reboot DC is pushing — is what, exactly, they’re going to change. You’re going to have to get rid of some things, of course; otherwise, there’s no reboot (in some ways, you might say there’s no story at all). But you’ve got to be careful not to change the things that made the character special to begin with.

Green Arrow has not done that yet, but I think there’s reason to be concerned. — more
