It has been 1 year since DC's New 52 relaunch. What do you think about it so far?

#2 Posted by AweSam (7371 posts) - - Show Bio

Still feels really new.

Hasn't been a year yet.

But I'm digging it anyways.

Action Comics and I, Vampire. The rest of my money goes toward precious alcohol and maybe rent.

Much ado about nothing. Quality wise, some titles read better than before, some read much, much worse, and some are just kind of there. Really, no significant change from where the line was last year. Fresh coat of paint aside, it's just more of the same.

New 52 has re-introduced me to comics after a long, long absence. Some things are great because they ACTUALLY rebooted them, some things I didn't get. Oh well. Over all, I love it.

I read Action, Batwing, and I intend to get Batgirl. I recently included Animal Man and Justice League Dark, and I might get Swamp thing as well. After that, I get old issues of comics, and some Marvel books.

Me I enjoy it well enough. I'm reading Batwing, Batman, Teen Titans, Batman and Robin, Justice League, Firestorm and Red Hood mostly with the occasional attempt to view something different which as of this moment I'm sticking with the "Savage" arc of the "DC comics presents..." books

#20 Posted by CODYSF (2053 posts) - - Show Bio

I just add Aquaman cause I got it but hell no I;m not replacing Blue Beetle and All Star Western I love the comic

I'm just now getting back into comics after a LONG time. The New 52 is kind of making the transition back easy. Picked up Batman and am going to probably toss some coin toward Nightwing, Aquaman, Batwing, Justice League, and some Marvel stuff (Spider-Man and maybe something else).

Woah, woah wait? A year? No no no no no, most definitely assuredly hasn't been a year. How could you make such a huge incredibly huge mistake! Imagine if every year only had 9 months in them, all the people born in October, November and December would die!! Die the death of non existence! That's the worse kind of racism and sexism. I'll reiterate and repeat myself and then attempt to quote myself! It hasn't been a year, it hasn't been a year! I'll assert myself that the purpose of this thread was clearly about time and dates and now that I have been the first person to clearly establish and confirm it hasn't been a year I will take my leave without offering any discussion on the other component of the thread!   
 
Actually lol I would offer a bigger opinion about how I am finding the whole New 52, but truth be told I only read up to about issue 2 of most series. I continued buying, but am just way behind on reading. So my opinion is almost that of myself a year... sorry nine months ago, when all new series seemed so full of promise and potential. I just found it was funny so many people just posted to offer correction as if there was some literal time fairy preventing them from giving an opinion since its not literally a year. Oh actually I was reading Birds of Prey and Batwoman for a while, and both those series seem to go from strength to strength, and momentum was carried, but I kind of expected that. I am still not happy that a lot of characters were sacrificial lambs for the sake of getting a lot of attention. A lot of attention that is really only a temporal solution (that potentially may do more harm than good long term) to a bigger comics problem. Am fingers crossed for a lot of good quality and creative reading when I catch up.

Well, I'm sure the DC brass thinks it was a good idea, as sales are still up. Personally, I mostly like it. I'm reading mostly the same titles I was before, but the new 52 did get me to add Swamp Thing.

#30 Posted by Superguy0009e (2265 posts) - - Show Bio

I think it has mostly been successful. The really good books are still around, and that is what i like.

#31 Posted by Jorgevy (5114 posts) - - Show Bio

Im loving it, picking up a lot of comics now and it transitioned me more to DC than ever before (Im still a Marvel fanboy though :D )

#32 Posted by Dreadmaster (16778 posts) - - Show Bio

Was only reading Batman from the New 52 but now i might start reading GL and Aquaman.

#33 Posted by WildStyle (331 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm very meh with it to be honest. I dropped more books than I originally thought I would drop. I'm reading three books as opposed to 13 that I originally started with.

As for going forward, I'm looking forward to the Trinity War and I'm hoping wave 3 actually has titles that I'm interested in. The DC Universe still has potential so it'll be interesting to see where things go in the future.

As someone who has mostly read Marvel, the reboot has really helped me get into the DC universe. I've really enjoyed it.

#36 Posted by greencrapweasel (137 posts) - - Show Bio

i have been bouncing back and forth in liking it and not liking it

at this point i like certain things about it, but HATE other things about it

  • I like that the whole pandora storyline is still continuing
  • I HATE that beast boy is red (I MEAN COME ON! I UNDERSTAND WHY, BUT SCREW THAT! BEAST BOY IS JUST MEANT TO BE GREEN!)
  • I like that a lot of the comics have been colliding over one another
  • I HATE that wally west isn't really in existence (to be fair i think he does exist, but just without super speed)
  • I like that there seems to be more things going on in this universe
  • I HATE that nothings really 100% clear as to what is going on or what might be happening
  • I like that they developed Artemis Crock to be more like the T.V. version of her on Young Justice
  • I HATE that they killed her already

The list goes on but these are the things that come immediately to my head

What I kinda really hope happens is that they will finish the whole pandora epidemic and then since the universe could return to "normal", the D.C. writers and what not decide what things were a hit and a miss in "the new 52." From there I think they should take in account everything that was a hit in the whole relaunch and all the things preferred in the original universe and somehow start to slide them both together, thus making everyone happy and in a way still creating a whole new generation for the D.C. comics.

It's somewhat decent, been reading Catwoman, Batman, Teen Titans, Superman and Supergirl, Deathstroke, Batgirl, Nightwing, Batman and Robin, Red Hood and the Outlaws, Earth 2, Birds of Prey (considering not getting more of this series though), and Batwing... I'm a little iffy on what's in continuity and what's not, but there are many parts of the New 52 I've grown to enjoy, but I think that it's still lacking something. Plus they're changing lots of things I'm not in favor of changing; I will never get over Beast Boy being red.

I don't have loads of issues from any of these series' unfortunately, too much strain on the pocket. Sad face :(

#41 Posted by greencrapweasel (137 posts) - - Show Bio

I just feel that nobody has it fair when it's coming to the D.C. comics. I mean before the reboot the ongoing readers were happy, but those just starting weren't as happy. Now in the reboot the newer readers are happy, but not all of the ongoing readers are happy. Personally I am tolerating the whole thing because I know D.C. is freakin awesome, but i do feel we should all somehow come together in order for everybody to be happy. So, in somehow going back to right after Flashpoint, through the use of Pandora, and managing to take the two goods and combined them everyone should be happy. If some people still aren't happy then guess what, no matter what we do they won't be happy so might as well hit up the majority over the unpleaseable people.

I'm a bit mixed about the New 52, although overall I'm still rather excited.  
 
I'm annoyed J.L.I has been axed because it was really, really good.   
 
Blue Beetle and Aquaman have been awesome and Batman & Robin is pretty promising.  
 
I'm hoping Deathstroke becomes a bit more of a three-dimensional character. 
 
And Green Arrow pretty much sucks so far... 
 
... so that's all the emotions covered really ;) 
 
 
Just bought the Stormwatch graphic novel and I'm looking forward to reading some of the other N52 graphic novels (I wish I had enough money/space in my house to get more of the fortnightly comics....d'oh!) 
 
AND I'm looking forward to the next wave,  let's just hope the second lot is organised better!

I started picking up Green Arrow When Ann Nocenti started writing for it and I really like it, but the art sucks. In regards to money and space, I'm in the same boat, and I'm just not patient enough to wait for trades to come out. And yeah I'm really looking forward to the next wave, specially National Comics.

@Katie24: I'm not so impatient, I've got a pile of comics and books that need a serious attack but somehow only seems to be getting bigger....

Green Arrow for me has been a serious dissapointment. The storyline's are bland and I have no connection with Ollie because he has NO personality whatsoever.

I'm looking forward to reading some Earth 2 but I'm a bit apprehensive about what they're going to cancel next... if it's Aquaman then I may shave my own knees off...
