Batman #1

The focus of the first Batman issue of the reboot seems to be to establish that he’s even more high-tech than he was before. The issue opens with a riot at Arkham and Nightwing is there, disguised as the Joker … Continue reading

Birds of Prey #1

The Birds of Prey reboot is a strange one. I’d been hoping the team’s very existence meant Barbara Gordon had been Oracle during her time in a wheelchair, but the conversation between her and Black Canary in this issue strongly … Continue reading

Superboy #1

When they decided how to reboot Superboy, they went all in. They’ve rebooted him further back than we’ve ever seen the character before. Any further and the first issue would be nothing but illustrations of in-vitro fertilization. It starts out … Continue reading

Resurrection Man #1

I really like this character. I like the idea of an immortal who is immortal in a different way, he dies, but is instantly reborn fully adult. In the character’s origin he took awhile between incarnations, but that time shortened … Continue reading

Mister Terrific #1

I’m excited that Mister Terrific has got his own series, I think he’s one of the best legacy characters in the DC universe. They frequently use him to introduce some actual science and emphasize the scientific method. They also frequently … Continue reading

I was dubious about an entire title devoted to the Red Lanterns. They’re all about rage, anger and hate and that could become disgusting quickly. So far, however, so good. The initial issue focuses more on how hard it is … Continue reading

Suicide Squad #1

Wow, this comic is a disaster. The idiocy of Harley’s new costume has been widely discussed, but I hadn’t seen it until now and it is worse than I thought it’d be. The hair is fine and could have been a … Continue reading

Frankenstein Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #1

It amuses me how The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is still influencing the naming of “secret agencies”, so many still have periods after every letter, sometimes meaning each letter represents a word, sometimes just making fun of the trope. They’ve combined … Continue reading
