Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Nightwing #0: It wasn't already on my pull list but out of curiosity I picked it up anwyay and found myself enjoying the story, but not the changes to Dick. Like with Tim, it seems to me that DC for some reason is switching around character attributes to each Robin. Dick has been given Tim's natural detective and observational skills, while Tim is given Dick's athletic prowess combined with his own detective skills. Even if this was to elevate them above each other or differentiate them from each other, I don't see the point of these changes. The art was fantastic in this. I might pick this book back up as I am a fan of Kyle Higgins.

Supergirl #0: I really enjoyed this book. I think so far it was the strongest issue that I have read from the series. Maybe because it took place solely on Krypton, and I'm a sucker for Krypton stories. I liked the examination into Kara's family life and the relationship between Zor and Jor-El. We get a big question though...as it would appear that Superboy was sent back into the past at some point, I suppose this will be touched on in the H'ell story line upcoming. I want to return to this book, but am extremely hesitant to do so.

Wonder Woman #0: So far this is among my favourite of the zero issues so far. This was just terrific and felt like a Golden Age story (helped that it also referenced one as well at the start). The relationship and dynamic with Ares was fantastic. I expect this will be followed up in the next arc by Azzy.

Rich does a good job of pointing out the various continuity problems that are present in just the Batman part of the 52'Verse.

Catwoman #0: A fantastic issue. It told the story of Selina Kyle growing up as an orphan and going through rough times as a young adult. We got a good glimpse into the life of a girl/young woman who became emotionally arrested due to circumstance, constant abuse and bad choices that she's had to deal with. I also liked the art. It did a great job of showing her warped inner state with the way her various faces were drawn. I gave up on the title a long time ago, but I decided to get this issue and I'm glad I did. The character bio at the back says that she joined the Justice League. Never saw that storyline.

Green Lantern: New Guardians #0: Yeah, this wasn't the background story we normally get with the #0 issues but it was a good installment. For the first time, we're getting some progress with what's been going on with Kyle and the rings. I also liked seeing Carol Ferris and her Star Sapphire identity. I see that there's some praise for the new "less ridiculous" outfit, but personally, I liked the skimpier ones better.

I think Catwoman joining the League is upcoming in the new Justice League of America book. As of the current storyline the JL has never expanded beyond the original members.

Looks like tomorrow is a heavy pull day for me.

Aquaman, Superman, TDK, The Flash along with TMNT. I also need to pick up the final issue of "Spider-Men" which apparently came out last week and over-looked at my LCS.

Not getting: I, Vampire and Voodoo. Normally I don't get Hawkman, but since its a 0 issue and I like the character I'm picking it up, in spite of Rob.

Hawkman has been my biggest disappointment of the 52. He is one of my favorite characters and a year later there has been no real development. Finally the chance to give this character a fresh start, and...nothing.

This is DC comics. If history is any indication, they'll have a different timeline in the next five years anyway.
You think they will wait that long? Within two more years they will have the "Flashpoint Restored" saga to bring back the post-crisis but pre-Zero Hour era.

As long as sales continue to be as strong as they seem to be for DC we won't be seeing any kind of restoration to the DCU. If anything, they'll continue to make the retcon tweaks and changes that they've been slowly doing since it happened.

So did anyone get Justice League #0? As well it focusing on Ass Hole errrr Kewl Billy Batson, it was supposedly supposed to feature the origin of Pandora I believe?

Reading a full issue convinced me that I really despise NuBilly Batson.

We didn't get a straight origin of Pandora although it's implies that she's pretty much the Pandora of legend. She opened a box and unleashed evil into the world.

There was finally a good bit to the Shazam story, where Billy tells the Wizard that nobody is all good because life wears you down and ruins good intentions.

The Rob Liefield is an ass hole debacle continues as Brian Smith (an editor) at DC leaves.

Apparently, Eric Larsen isn't much better.

Yes but Image under him is doing a helluva job publishing creator owned stuff that they've pretty much stolen most of Vertigo's business.
