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

OTH, if we start a bunch of threads talking about the different books and overwhelm the forum it just might finally get us the comic book sub-forum that people have been demanding forever.

Today:


Action
Detective
Dial H #3
Earth 2 #3

He didn't have his shipment of the Earth 2 #1 (2nd Printing) in today due to the holiday and when he ordered it, should get it in a couple days. (I enjoyed the second book so much I'm considering following the series.) And even though I was told a couple weeks ago the Splinter TMNT Micro-Series issue was out I've still not seen it anywhere.

It might be different if we had a separate comics forum. I see the argument that, say you come to this forum for Star Wars and not comics, that you'd be lost in the multiple threads for various DC/Marvel/etc. comics.

Possibly true.
I look at this way. I recall how a few years back, probably 4-5 now, how the mods or maybe it was group think I don't recall, decided that for every new bit of news on a TV show or Hotly anticipated movie announcement was clogging the thread. So we went to having one thread for all new info and I think that has worked out well. Sure every blue moon someone doesn't like it but overall it works.

Same here, for now at least. I was glad to see the "all Action Comics" news go elsewhere out of the main DC thread cause I wasn't reading it.

That's just it, if we create the "demand" by making a bunch of threads on the various comic books, comic book movies, comic book TV shows, etc. The TPTB have been reluctant to make such a sub-forum due to lack of demand (but, apparently, there was high demand for a Dr. Who forum.) Well... If we create that demand...

A comic book forum would screw us.

A little box off in the wayfare where no one would have the strength to visit.

Seriously, 10 seconds to generate a new page and it freezes the media I'm playing while it...

I need more RAM.

not exactly set in the 52 verse...but did anyone else read Masters of the Universe? thought it was pretty entertaining. an interesting take on the He-Man mythos.

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

I did. I thought it was pretty good. Not exactly what I was hoping for...but I did enjoy it and the set up. Will be interesting to see Teela in issue two. I loved the Zoar appearance and her connecting with Adam, I'm guessing Skeletor wiped her memory and trapped the Sorceress in her Falcon form. It almost reminded me a bit of the Classic Lifelines two parter comic from Star Comics. Wasn't that great a fan of the art though.

Action Comics #11: Batman and Superman meet up!!! I really enjoyed this issue, but I do have to say...is it just me, or does this arc feel more disjointed story telling wise than the opening arc did? I feel like it's had less flow than the first arc did. Other than that I enjoyed this. Also still is a bit confusing as we've brought up before just when exactly Clark chooses to wear or bond to his Kryptonian armor. It's obvious that he wears his regular t-shirt and jeans with cape in Metropolis for the "little" I guess street work, but I guess switches to his armor for the heavy more action packed conflicts.

DC Comics Presents introduces Blue Devil and Black Lightning to the new52!

The good: it's written by Manhunter writer, Marc Andreyko
The bad: Blue Devil looks like he should be called S&M Devil

Black Lightning looks good in that pencil sketch. I await the coloring for final verdict but it's very promising.

Agreed--Blue Devil is only missing a ball gag to complete the ensemble. HORRIBLE!! I also don't like the horns. They look fragile. The 90 degree turn out of the head just looks wrong.

Blue Devil looks like his design has been brought in line with some of the other devils we've seen in the past: Satanus was the name, maybe?

But I like the idea of S&M Devil. He can be the one who's kidnapped all the characters still missing from the reboot - the article even says he'll help "unlock" a corner of the DC Universe. "Bring out the gimp ... I mean, the Elongated Man!"

Manhunter was great (has she shown up in the New 52?). I've been waiting for Andreyko to come back to the DCU.

New creative team announced for Detective Comics. I'm not familiar with either person. Hope it's good.

I've heard of John Layman, but I haven't read any of his stuff. His creator owned title at Image, Chew has been highly recommended by the staff of iFanboy. Apparently, it's about John Chu, a Cibopath, who gets psychic flashes from what he eats, which helps him solve crimes. I gather it's better than it sounds.

Chew is a great book. Layman on 'Tec is good news.

So, now that we've gotten a good look at it, what do we think of Alan Scott's nu costume from Earth 2? Personally I think it needs more cape.
