After a short break, I’m continuing with my comic reviews with a look at the first trade of another New 52 book. Continue reading →
Happy New Year everyone. This week I’m taking a look at another part of the New 52, with the first look at one of the new form of comic book’s most famous super-teams. Continue reading →
So, we haven’t done many reviews of the comics coming out of the New 52, as they came out. Fortunately, some of these comics have been coming out in collections, so they’re a little easier to review now. Continue reading →
Longtime reader Chad pointed us to this essay, which discusses much of what has been happening with Wonder Woman in DC’s New 52 continuity. Be warned that this includes spoilers for the big finale of yesterday’s Justice League #12. Granted, the plot point spoiled was also spoiled by the cover of said issue, but it won’t be spoiled by me.
Sharp eyes may have noticed something all 52 new titles from DC have in common: the Hooded Woman, who first appeared in Flashpoint #5 when the new history was formed, can be found somewhere in every title. Feel free to play “Where’s Waldo?” with the Hooded Woman on your own. Then come back here to find her in any issues you missed her in. While you are at it, feel free to speculate wildly as to who she is and what she means. There will be spoilers as I describe where to find her.
All 52 new titles from DC have now been reviewed. Here is the summary of the line and my thoughts on the whole thing.
This is it: the 52nd review of the New 52 #1 issues. To follow: a summary article compiling my final thoughts, grouping and categorizing the titles. After that, there will be a guide to finding the hooded woman in each issue (assuming I can find her when I go back to find her in the first two weeks, before I knew to look.)
This relaunched title is a true origin story, with the secret identities of Firestorm being nothing more than human teenagers when the first page takes place.
This is a high tech military title, and the last to be reviewed that seems to be mandated to diversify the line.
DC’s western title is part of their efforts to diversify the line. While diverse, I’m not sure it’ll scratch the itch many readers will want it to scratch.
