Aquaman: Still love this book. Mera beats up some scumbag misogynists.

The Flash: Another great one. Fantastic art, and I'm actually really liking the new Captain Cold. I don't see the necessity of having it jump back and forth in time, though.

New Guardians: Finally, the team acting as a team. The potential of this one is still greater than the execution (it's been slow to build) but we finally get some action this time.

Teen Titans: Another good one. Static's cameo makes me wonder if they'll be adding him to the team, seeing as his book has been cancelled.

Just read Dark Knight #6... so, they've decided to magically erase the past decade of Bane stories showing the redemption of the character, and have reduced him to a cackling madman? Jeez.

Was Justice League 6 supposed to come out this week?

Is this the first time Bane has been in the New 52?

If that's his redesign, I do not like it.
Seems Arkham Asylum/City inspired.

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.

I would be more impressed with bane's boasting if Batman hadn't been kicking his ass most of the times since Knightfall.

Seems they made Justice League a Week-5 release this month.

Remember the previous issue was delayed a couple of weeks guys, so issue six is slated for next week for the big show down against Darkseid; and yes it would seem the reversed all of Gail Simone's good work with Bane with Secret Six. Although I believe he was being turned a bit near the end IIRC. The Arkham Aslyum/City design is better than this one though IMO

I am anxious to see, if Johns can pull a credible ending out of this. While it is a pretty book for the art, the story has not been all that impressive in introducing the new League. Right now, I'm expecting an ending that is a plot driven mess.

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

I'm fully expecting either Aquaman or Batman to defeat Darkseid or at least derive a way to send him back to Apokolips so he can prepare for his inevitable return. The League will unite, vowing to protect the Earth from all kinds of threats. I think the solitics showed new villains that the League will be facing when it jumps forward with the next arc.


Aquaman #6: I think I've stated it before...but it's pretty clear where Geoff Johns attention is at right now. It is with Arthur and Mera, especially Mera who would appear to be his personal pet project right now so to speak. Which is great because she's never been written better, same with Arthur for that matter...well since Peter David, and Grant Morrison in JLA. Another thing that annoys me about the New 52 is the decision editorial to make the people afraid and unsure of the metahuman community. I mean plot wise I get why they did it...this is a new timeline and they're first emerging and they have to earn "our" trust. It just seems dumb and silly to me.

I can't remember where I came across the idea, but someone had suggested the heroes all be defeated and Darkseid give a speech to the effect that humbling the pretentious heroes was a step in his future goal. The League then forming to counter Darkseid's future ambitions. I'd like that better than some mashed up song duet by Superman and Batman to drive off Darkseid.

I still can't believe we're six months into the New 52 and we haven't seen the Justice League in the modern day continuity yet. What a weird decision. You would think they would do a modern day JL series, then do this "Justice League Year One" thing as a seperate mini-series at the same time.

It's so odd when Superman shows up in Dark Knight #5 talking about how they're teammates... yet we haven't seen them be teammates yet! We don't know what their new relationship is yet.

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

Johns stated that they wanted the first arc to tell the origin of the Justice League and come together against a force as strong as Darkseid. The second arc jumps forward to the present as mentioned before, but yeah as far as I'm concerned, editorial has made a lot of weird decisions regarding the New 52.


We also saw the Justice League appear as a fully established team in issue one of Justice League Dark IIRC.

With all the crises, One Year Later, and now this UnReboot to DCnU, I'm not sure if TPTB care anymore. I suspect their view of time and continuity is like rule of Italian Driving in Gumball Rally

Not to overreact at all...but a part of me...the cynical critical part who doesn't like the bulk of the New 52 so far or the decisions behind it...thinks that it isn't just continuity they don't care about now either.

I don't like the bulk of the New 52 either, but this is the first time in years that I haven't been able to afford all the books I want to read, so it's at least better than the era right before the reboot, so that's good, right?
