PREVIEW: YOUNG ROMANCE: A NEW 52 VALENTINE'S DAY SPECIAL #1
Hate it. I completely hate this idea.
I'm guessing it a collection of stories? But regardless I can't stand half the couples in these stories, this must be DC trying to appeal to female fans again. If they want to do that they need to write the female heroes better instead of lame stunts like this.
I'm sure someone else will love this idea but this wreaks of cheese to me.
I don't really get why this exists. There's a bit of romance in most comics anyway, so why have an issue dedicated to it? I can understand Christmas or Hallowe'en specials, but I'm not sure about this. Also, I'm generally not a fan of the idea of Valentine's Day.
However, I will be buying it for the Catwoman story. I think I heard it ties into the actual series in some way, so I don't want to miss bits.
I don't really get why this exists....
However, I will be buying it...
aaaaaand this is why it exists :p I did the exact same thing haha "WHY do they punt this stuff out into....oooooh!" :p
I feel like I've been tricked, but at least I'm not the only one. :P Which part's tempted you in?
The price is annoying for me as I'd only really be buying it for one sixth of it. I could almost buy a graphic novel for that price.
Yeah it's steep! I like the sounds of most of them really, interested to see why Batgirl is listed by herself in a valentines special... Think, to an extent, it's gonna be DC's answer to A+X, which is something I really like the idea of; short DC stories that can contradict continuity in order to create a better story. I already know it's going to populate my LCS and the forums with people arguing over this issue...so it's worth it just to take part in that haha
@Manbehindthewires: Hmm, I hadn't thought of the possibility of an argument...
To the shops I go! :)
A+X does seem like a cool idea though. I haven't bought any yet, but I'll be getting #5 and #6. #6 Has Captain Marvel with Wolverine, and #5 has Iron Fist with Doop, which may turn out to be the greatest comic ever. :)
I thought about picking this up, but none of those preview pages really impressed me. Another Clark and Diana date a restaurant? Didn't we just see that in Justice League?
If I hear that any of these stories end up being quirky or humorous, I'll think about buying it. For $8, I can probably find 2-3 other comics I'd enjoy more.
