Unscripted: First Wave #1

#1 Posted by HaloKing343 (1252 posts) - - Show Bio

At first, I thought that this would be like the "Marvels Project" of DC universe, a story that would take place in the early DC days. However, I was obviously wrong. This is a parrallel universe.

Man! I’m a sucker for retro 30’s – 40’s noir-detective style characters. Plus you’ll eventually get some original Golden Age “killer” Batman? This is definitely a pickup for me.  I can’t resist pulp books; I catch myself picking up musty old Doc Savage paperbacks at used book stores all the time. Now if the Shadow appears…I might nerdgasm!  Great unscripted review, guys! Can't wait for more.

I love me some Bronze Man, I bet his skin is silky smooth.

I've been wanting to read this for awhile and I'm glad it wasn't disappointing.

I agree... The art is amazing but I am not avid DC reader so I'm afraid i won't understand it...

After seeing the awful "Spirit movie", I have a hard time liking the Spirit character. Why did I watch that terrible movie? Damn it!

Well...just remember that's NOT the Spirit. Frank Miller did his own thing.

This looks pretty good.  I'll have to get it.

Good idea and I like the Spirit so I'll pick it up!

I really like the art work & maybe the Doc Savage movie will help enlighten people about him.

I'm looking forward to this issue.  I'll be interested to see where DC goes with this...I'd like to see a resurgence of some Golden Age characters.  I'm hoping the Spirit's solo series will be well-done, too.

@G-Man: great review, one little nitpick (really more of a correction) Dolan always knew that Denny was the Spirit, going back to the old Eisner stuff

I loved it, the art is killer. The Spirit was really cool in this too.

@Emperor Gonzo Noir: You're right, I went back and looked at The Spirit Archives vol. 1. It was Ellen that didn't know.

Im praything that when Bruce returns he doesnt pick up a pistol agian and forget everything hes learned from being with other heroes and from the Martian (god rest his green good soul). Personally a batman kill is awsome here and there, but id rather see him fist 'o cuff villains in the face. Just me.

Rags Morales does stunning work.  (Best Hawkman run ever)
 
I'm hoping that Next Wave does for the Pulp era what New Frontier did for the silver age.

I just wanted to thank you both for this Review, if not for your Review I would not have ever bought it.  The art was so great and helpful for my own art.  Thanks.

At first i was alittle confused about what the connection between each story line was but i know now that there is no connection. There were some really interesting things going on like what up with the crazy jungle moments and the big ass robot. Ill get the second issue to see if it clears up.
