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

Knowing how Hal has been written lately that would match his personality. I liked the cover for Justice League #6 better with them all kneeling before Darkseid, except for Batman who looks like he's planning a counter attack. Sigh. It is sad how much disinterest I have for Justice League right now. LOL

Three observations.

1. Aquaman is foreground.
2. Aquaman is not grouped with the others.
3. It's not a happy looking group...except Batman of all people who has a bit of a smile.
And while everyone is looking forward, it looks like GL is checking out Wonder Woman's ass.

Well, Superman is a little creepy.
Oh come-on! Like you haven't occasionally lurked in the bushes of an ex-lover's house and used your x-ray vision and super-hearing to spy on her.

Pulls today:

Aquaman
Superman
Batman and Robin
Flash

Also TMNT and Donatello (both I think are out today) for non-DC.

Batman and Robin isn't out today. Are you thinking about Batman: The Dark Knight? This and Batwoman are the only new Bat Family Books out today.

TDK, yeah that's it. I knew one of the Bat-Books came out today just forgot which one.

Absolutely incredible. You think B&R was bad and yet you are still reading TDK.

Batman: The Dark Knight #2 to #5: I caught up on this last night. I wanted to wrap things up and drop the title, but the White Rabbit bit with the drug that eliminates fear has me intrigued enough to want to soldier on for now. And Bane is next? Sounds good.

Justice League Dark #3 to #5: I like this title. I like the idea of a team that uses magic instead of super powers and I'm warming up to the characters. This one is a keeper for now.

The Team

And I love what they did with Zatanna. This version is one of the most stunning comic book women around.

Well, TDK was one I was planning on dropping but it's somehow managed to recapture my interest.

Pretty much it, the White Rabbit stuff has been interesting, though I think the stuff with Superman was a bit silly but it managed to get me re-interested. TDK is still on "the line" though but it's managing to hold on to the right side of things, B&R just lost me.

Batman and Robin is a pretty straight forward story involving Bruce and Damian's trust issuees. Batman: The Dark Knight has been utter garbage and deserves to be cancelled. Ugh. Bane reminds Batman (and everyone else) that he indeed broke Bruce's back.

She's stunning, but thank God she dresses differently from Xanadu, because I'm not convinced I could tell them apart otherwise.

Looks like there are some changes abound in Flash, revamped villains, and yet another explanation for the Speed Force.

I like how they say they are going to explain the Speed Force "definitvely". LOL!
Until the next definitive definition comes along.

Superman: I really liked this issue and the title overall, but I do think it's getting exposition and explanation heavy in the narrator boxes and even in the dialogue of the characters.

Aquaman: Really loved this book and seeing that Mera isn't quite as... reserved or discrete as Aquaman is.

TDK: Actually not too bad, I think this book is shaping up a bit, liked the beginning use of Bane here and the "sub-plot" of sorts with Superman and Flash.

Flash: Good book and interesting to see where it is going, I also really like the art in this series.
