The New DC: Superboy #1 -plus- Teen Titans #1
Insert obligatory SPOILER WARNING here. The reason these two are tied together should be a little blatant, but it’ll be even more so in a bit. That’s why the SPOILER WARNING is there. Superboy #1 re-presents the modern-day clone of Superman in a different light than he was created under. Instead of the fancy-free typical teenager created by Cadmus that Superboy was, now he’s a super-powered...
The New DC: Suicide Squad #1 -plus- Red Hood and...
Oh, right. Totally gonna need the SPOILER WARNING here, too. If you haven’t noticed, since I’ve doubled-up the reviews, the books that have been reviewed are somehow tied together. The Batman and Green Lantern reviews were pretty obvious with this. This one? Probably not so much. So, I’ll answer that question now: both Suicide Squad and Red Hood and the Outlaws were titles that I didn’t...

The New DC: Green Lantern #1 -plus- Green Lantern...
Yeah. If I ever needed that handy-dandy SPOILER WARNING , this would be the perfect time… In breaking tradition a bit, these have to be discussed together for a reason. No, not the one about getting way behind I mentioned yesterday. I mean, like almost not even separating. Because it would fit well with the path the books themselves took. You see, Green Lantern #1 and Green Lantern...
The New DC: Batman And Robin #1 -plus- Batman #1
Okay. I try to step these up and get some more out there without looking completely outdated by intrawebz standards…and then I go and get sicker than a dog. Tremendous. So, that put me behind as hell. And there’s a lot of catching up to do now. Which means starting with this, I’m going two at a time. Daily. Until we’re all caught up. Hope you ate your Wheaties. Oh, and so no one thinks I’m...
The New DC: Justice League International #1
If it’s goin’ down, let’s get it over with: **SPOILER ALERT** Ah, yes - the other Justice League. This title, under the watch of Keith Giffen and J M DeMatteis, was a cult favorite that became a fan favorite. Giffen and DeMatteis, however, aren’t on this one. Instead we have artist Aaron Lopresti and writer Dan Jurgens, one of the men responsible for the Death of Superman. On a side note, the...
The New DC: Detective Comics #1
I already know I’m going to get in to the final page of this one, so here: **SPOILER ALERT** Tony Daniel is a pretty good artist. Let me get that out of the way now in saying that I have zero problem with how his stuff looks. In Detective Comics #1, his art looks even better. It’s almost like he cleaned up his style knowing what this book meant to DC as a whole and to the legacy of Batman. That...
The New DC: Swamp Thing #1
NOTE: I’m stepping these up to the rate of four a week. I’m reading more of these than I thought I might (though not all of them, by any means), and if I do two a week, this will take forever to roll out. Hence, you get a bonus starting today. Oh, and because I know someone out there will get mad if I don’t put this up front… **SPOILER ALERT** I’ve always had some interest in Swamp Thing....
Why on earth has no one made an “Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld” animated series for children? That’s money waiting to happen.

The New DC: Action Comics #1
Honestly. This book has been out over a week. Everyone and their mother has already reviewed this thing. Fine, fine… **SPOILER ALERT** I’ve stated before how Superman has gotten a bad rap among the snobbier of comic fans (and believe me, there are quite a few). You’d also think that with Grant Morrison - you know, the guy who wrote ”one of the best Superman stories ever”? – writing...

Bonus Level (aka because I haven’t written/posted enough today)! Feel free to peruse the review of “the metal album of 2011”
"The Spectre" Headed for Television? →
I guess since The CW laid claim to Deadman, Fox wanted a supernatural DC character of their own.
The New DC: Justice League #1
Do I even have to tell you there will be SPOILERS here? I mean, seriously, this book is already two weeks old! Okay, fine… **SPOILER ALERT** Justice League signified the beginning of the New DC when it was released on August 31. The story starts off slow and five years in the past, meaning we are that long before the “current” DC timeline. I know, it’s a mite confusing. Anyway, despite...
