New titles and Free Comic Book Day included this week!
Earth 2 #1: 3.5/5 Stars COMIC OF THE WEEK! Pretty good start to the series, but it focuses on characters who apparently we won't see again, so there's no real effect on us of what happened to the characters. However, the series has intrigue and hints at being a good series once characters are established.
Detective Comics #9: 3/5 Stars Night of the Owls tie-in makes this a better issue than the rest of the series. However... WHEN DOES IT TAKE PLACE? In Batman, Bruce is trapped in Wayne Manor... but here, he saves Dr. Arkham. Decent stuff here. But I don't get the Two-Face back up. The art and the colors are awful because you can't tell who is who or what's going on.
Batwing #9: 2.5/5 Stars Night of the Owls tie-in but this was pretty short and pointless. If the other Night of Owls tie-ins are gonna be like this and Detective then they can be skipped.
Action Comics #9: 2.5/5 Stars Don't get me wrong, this isn't a bad comic. However, it is totally and completely pointless for being issue NINE of ACTION COMICS. If it was it's own series, it would be rated higher but since it just interrupts the flow of Action Comics it's POINTLESS!
Red Lanterns #9: 2/5 Stars What's the point in this series? Sure, the art and color are good and it takes place within the Green Lantern universe, but this is still pointless...
World's Finest #1: 3/5 Stars Again, not a bad issue, but I would have rather seen more of their life in Earth 2 and then more of what happened following being transported to our Earth. Could be a good series... Why is it called Worlds' Finest though?
The Flash #8: 3.5/5 Stars Maybe I shouldn't give up on this series. The art and the colors and the panels are fantastic. Also, the plot is like a great tv show. Quick and random scenes occur for no reason, only to be touched upon later.
The New 52 (FCBD) #1: 5/5 Stars Sure, it's only 16 pages of actual story (hey, it's free) but the story got me excited! It's got hints sci-fi, mythology, action/adventure, and the super natural. We get a little more history on Pandora and a hint of the future! Can't wait to see what comes of the Trinity War!
