Over all, it was a solid week. As I read now I need to put my brain into the fact that yes this is a reboot of the DCU, but apparently some of the events that happened in the old DC happened here as well, just some new twists.
Batman – An incredibly solid book!!! Scott Snyder has an incredibly suspenseful way of storytelling that fits perfectly with Greg Capullo’s pencils and Jonathan Glapion’s inks. A bit gothic, a tad traditional and a whole lot awesome!!!
Wonder Woman – Having Brian Azzarello writing it kinda scared me, but having Cliff Chang draw it does not! The book is definitely one that may need a few reads (and next few issues) to get a feel for, but I think this one will become one of my favorites!
DC Universe Presents – This book will be a tour around the DCU with revolving characters. But I do hope they keep the team of Paul Jenkins and Bernard Chang on this one. The reintroduction to Deadman has an epic scope to it that was fun and easy to fall into.
Catwoman – This one is hot, very sexy and a real fun read! Selina Kyle is at her best when she is a little on the edge and Judd Winick has her right there! Artist Guillem March has become one of my favorite ‘Bat’ artists. My favorite of the week!!!
Supergirl – I just couldn’t get into this one. To me the story never got going and everytime it started to pick up it went flat. Michael Green and Mike Johnson are not bad writers they just could keep me involved. Mahmud Asrar is a very good artist, just not the right fit for this book.
Red Hood and the Outlaws – this was one I had no interest in, but I’m glad I picked it up! Certainly not a kids book, Scott Lobdell has given us a dysfunctional and very lose team. Artist Kenneth Rocafort has a unique style especially in his panel layouts made this another solid comic.
Birds of Prey – One of the best artists to draw ‘the ladies’ is Jesus Saiz and this book is made for him! This book definitely has a slow burn feel to it, but writer Dwane Swierczynski keeps it moving with nice action and great dialog!
Tiny Titans – Not part of the ‘New 52’ but had me laughing out loud as usual!!! Thanks Art and Franco!!!!!!
