WARNING: FIRST ISSUE SPOILERS AHEAD
With this past Wednesday’s release, the last of DC Comics’ New 52 books have been released. For the most part, this incredibly daring plan has paid off, revitalizing a number of titles. With all the number 1s out, it seems like the right time to sum up the New 52.
WARNING: SPOILERS FOLLOW
It’s the last week of September and the last of DC’s new 52 roll out this week.
Since last Wednesday, the internet has been lit up with a lot of talk about DC Comics’ New 52 books. Well, more specifically, they have been lit up with discussion of two that week’s releases: Catwoman and Red Hood and The Outlaws and how female characters are portrayed in both books. In my own reviews of each book, the did not rate them highly, with Catwoman almost falling into the dropped pile.
DC’s new 52 continues to roll out, but there are a number of other titles out this week that should be considered as well.
This is the week, the week when DC’s New 52 begins. so, let’s jump right into the “small comics week and I got hit by a hit and run driver” picks of the week.
WARNING: Spoilers may be ahead.
This week, we take a look at a few comic trades out there. Mot all of these are available through your local bookstore or online shop.
A few posts ago, I listed some of the comic book crossovers and events that I felt were lacking in their performance. For the sake of fairness, I felt it only fitting that I list some of the ones that I thought were actually good. In this case, I have tried to limit the series to those that were “in continuity,” which is why mini-series like Watchmen, V for Vendetta and Camelot 3000 are absent.
