This list is strictly for all the DC The New 52 comics I have read so far.
4 out of 5 - This is really a good beginning of a new series and revamp of the DC Universe. I liked the majority of the issue until Hal Jordan had to just be a total jerk. Also, Superman seems to be a bit of a jerk too. Batman seems like the only mature one in this issue. Hopefully the characters will become more likable in the next issue.
4.5 out of 5 - Killer issue, better overall than Justice League #1, likely the best Superman, Clark Kent, and Lex characterizations in decades.
#$%@! Whoa what the was all that about? Animal Man is really totally different from any other typical DCU comic. No wonder why it was a Vertigo comic for a while. The art style isn't my taste but the story and the weirdness creations these guys come up with is making me keep going! You gotta at least try this comic out and read all the way to the end!
Batgirl returns as the DC52 alters history making her time in a wheelchair only three years with an unexplained miracle recovery. This issue, totally an introduction, attempts to setup the emotional scarring left by the night of her attack and how it still affects her as she once again attempts to be Batgirl. As much as this issue is a solid read overall, it didn't pull me in strongly enough. Here's hoping the next issue won't be so straight forward.
The good first: I thought it was really interested to see the existence of so many original DCU characters in this issue. It almost feels like the New 52 never happened except the fact that the JLI is brand new and Booster has a new suit. The bad: I just don't know. This comic didn't jump at me at all. I read it, I didn't think it was horrible, but it was just so plain. Someone mention how it was like 90's style art and old time writing, maybe they're right. I'll next issue 2 a chance tho. :/
This was an enjoyable fast read for me. It was very interesting how they created connections to the older DCU such as Hawk's brother. I enjoyed this title for what I think it is, something a bit less serious and more fun. The ending of the comic makes you wanna see whats gonna happen next. Mainly an introduction comic anyhow. The only downside of this fun comic is the artwork seems a bit off and odd at times. I often feel like the art doesn't reflect the character's emotions. Just lots of teeth and angry faces haha.
I was totally unsure about this issue as I began reading. I couldn't imagine why it started off a casual office co-workers environment. Epesically with the title of the issue with Office Management, I'm like WHAT is this? I'll add that the art of the people weren't good either. Thankfully this all changes quick once the OMAC begins tearing his way through their building. Somebody compares this to a Hulk-like title and yeah I guess it is. It's just fun and action-packed all the way. The ending is pretty interesting too since I'm not familiar with Brother Eye at all.
Really good introduction to a comic series that some people had doubts about. I never read the original Stormwatch from Wildstorm, but this one looks very appealing and hopefully awesome to be apart of the DCU. I'm very interested in seeing where this leads and for it to become a major part of the DC Universe.
Not bad, but I think you need to be a Static fan. I'm happy to see that there is acknowledge to Static being from Dakota and moving to NYC with a purpose. What exactly that purpose is, hasn't been told, but we know Hardware told him to. I'm interested in seeing what the next issue brings, but I don't think I'll be following the series. It is also a bit wordy, Hawkins talk too much.
Surprisingly good and interesting story starring Joseph Rock, Sgt. Rock's grandson. I really got into the storytelling with a feeling of this is how war stories should be told for the DCU. I liked that the meta-humans actually become a piece of the story, making you feel this is actually in the DC Universe afterall. The total downside is the backup story featuring Navy Seals Part 1. This Navy Seals story doesn't even belong in this book. It doesn't compare to the main story and its a waste of an extra dollar for the title. I'm interested in seeing where Rock's story is gonna go, and pray they cut out having backup stories in the back.
Wow! Dark and sick by the end. Batman is back better than ever as the GCPD still hates him except Gordan, and The Joker is back sicker than ever! Must read for Batman fans!
Action pack, lighter side of superhero comics in the New 52. I actually liked this one, at least the first time around. It was good to see what I considered a normal action-packed superhero comic. I'm not sure if I'm gonna follow it though, not enough to make me attached to the characters
The Return of Alec Holland and Swamp Thing makes for a strange but interesting read. I actually enjoyed seeing the other superheroes making a small appearance to give more connection to comics like this. Curious to see what the next issue will be like.
Surprisingly good solid story featuring depth and questions ahead. Nice to see Batman make an appearance too. Must read for fans of Batman Inc's additional Batmans.
I have to say this is one of my favorite New 52 issues so far. Action Comics was great, this one is just as great. I really love how Bruce and Damian interactions and relationship is. I also love how the issue is paced and told. Excellent in my opinion!
Very Good, Deathstroke is still the badass skilled mercenary that his legacy lives up to. However, it sounds like some people think he's getting too old to be as good and they know how to send a message. This was enjoyable with some unexpected twists. It's also one of the few comics I notice that is pretty self-contained within its own issue while setting up a story arc.
This issue has gotten a lot of negative feedback. I'm here to say they're wrong. I was really surprised that I thought this was a good issue. It was unique for DC and had an interesting depth to it. The actual villain doesn't even show his face yet but causing some very weird chaos. It's good to see Karen Starr here as somewhat reinvented character as being a Corporate Millionaire running Starrware. She's gonna to be a really interesting piece to the whole puzzle I believe. Btw, just ignore ComicVine's review of this comic.
Wow, what a F'ed comic. Wow really twisted and sick. This is great for horror lovers. Really twisted ending too. It ended up being a good issue, except I feel like the entire series is gonna be some kind of death competition. We'll read each issue to see who gets killed next. This is a good example of how extreme and different DC is willing to go.
Surprising comic that is quite interesting especially once we learn the overall plot of this storyarc and the players who want to claim Mitch for their own. I'm not sure if it is a comic you would reread though, but once is worth it.
At first, I was unsure, but as I continued reading I began to get hook on this series. I just hope Sinestro stays as a Green Lantern though. It'll be neat if Hal and Sinestro stays as a team.
Much better than the first issue, still needs work.
Great to see familiar characters with larger roles in their very own comic. Way to go Madame Xanadu and Demon Etrigan! Must read!
Lack busting Introduction of the man known as Grifter. This ends up being somewhat of an origin issue as Cole Cash has just recently become the man we'll known as Grifter. So, as this is totally new for us DC fans, it's new for him. I'm hoping Issue 2 will be much better.
Overwhelming first issue that throws too much all in a short amount of time. I'm not really familiar with the Legion of Super-Heroes characters, so I'm reading this as a newcomer for Legion. This issue doesn't spend any time really expressing who these characters are nor the villain. It just feels like the story is going in circles for the first issue. There's promise here, but I think the second issue will deliver, hopefully!
Great read! Wow, this is how it should be done. Very enjoyable first issue. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the story's need to reflect against background characters to make a point. I think they should keep their entire attention on Atrocitus and his lanterns. Good story though.
Red Lanterns continue to deliver and improves on outside events to give Atrocitus experience in his decision making. Good read.
Very solid and good issue. The origins of Superboy are told as well as setting up mysteries to solve. I really liked this comic. It's just right I think. I think it should be an enjoyable series.
Wow, deep interesting solid story featuring Batwoman, a character I really dont know anything about. I like how she's written in a similar style to Batman, very serious, dark, and just mysterious overall. Very good start. Must for Bat-fans
Short, but lots of fun. I'm feeling this is the main direction of this series. Just fun destruction and violence. Good anyhow.
A lot better than the first issue. A lot more excitement and action. Really good issue for Suicide Squad. Hope it only gets better!
I enjoyed this issue a lot more than #1. Big improvement, interested in reading the next issue. I hope the military and his girlfriend believes him soon.
Some interesting concepts such as mention of the Pocket Dimension Dead Zone. It's just the art that's the largest problem. It's so awful. I can't stop thinking about it as I read through the issue. Please, we need a different artist. Somebody! Please!
Still solid writing for a military series, the introduction of Circe made for a quite interesting yet weird read. It makes me want to know what does she have to do with any of this? The backup story continues and improves with Part 2, thankfully. Still not sure how long I'm gonna keep following this series.
I found this issue more interesting than the first. The thing that bugs me the most is the way Deadman is drawn, since to me he doesn't really look like himself. I also dislike his personality too. Otherwise, interesting.
Not the best issue but not the worse. I'm interested in seeing how things end up in the next issue.
Not so good, at least for me. You really got to be a Static fan I think. I'm dropping this one.
I didn't enjoy this issue as much as I should. I'm undivided if I should keep giving it a try or not. We'll see how issue #3 is.
Very good, gotta love these Batman issues. Strong good read.
Eh, not the best. I didn't really enjoy the issue, but the introduction of The Blue Beetle original host and the Reach along with a Green Lantern was the best part.
Very Good. Only gets better! I really like this teamup with Sinestro and Hal Jordan.
Wow, what a weird comic. No wonder why the original mini-series was called "Weird Worlds" ha, but I think I'm gonna keep checking it out.
I'm really glad they expressed how Nightwing was Batman for about a year based on their dating. So, now Dick is back as Nightwing, his own person. The first issue wasn't as good as it could of been, but sets the stage for interesting events to come. The main target of interest is Haley's circus has finally came back to Gotham.
Better than the first issue!
