Back with two issues in the same month after an eight month delay. Well worth the wait Superior continues to kick ass in issue 5 and 6 out now.
Even with a pile of comics from the last week of the DC reboot in hand The first on the reading list had to be Frank Millers Holy Terror. Once an epic Batman story now something entirely new with the Fixer.
The DCnU has brought us another amazing new series in Red Hood and the Outsiders. It’s reinvented some of the best and most underused characters in the DC Universe.
Probably the most defining comic icon of the last few generations Batman starts his adventure from issue one this month. Part of the New 52 Batman #1
One of the most sexually controversial comics since Superman and Big Barda made that movie. Catwoman #1 from the DC Reboot is defiantly one for the adult reader.
Another of DC Comics icons has been rebooted in the big DCnU of 2011. Supergirl crash lands to earth but where has she landed.
The new DC reboot for some hasn’t changed much but Superboy is one of the few who has been reinvented. Thought to be a failed genetic experiment from a cross between human and alien DNA.
So far the DC reboot has been a mixed bunch. Suicide Squad is the perfect example of how the reboot can be used to the full. It’s a total reinvention of all the other incarnations and kicks off with an epic first issue.
Not sure if this really counts towards the DCnU since it’s a spin off from Grant Morrisons Batman Inc from last year. But it is well worth a read, take a look at the full spoiler-full review.
