Review: Captain Atom #7

The relaunched Captain Atom series is one of my favorite titles in the New 52, and JT Krul and Freddie Williams II haven’t failed to impress me with the first issue of their second story arc.  In this issue, we [...]

Why I Hope Captain Atom Isn’t Cancelled or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Captain Atom

One thing that I’ve really liked about the New 52 is the willingness of DC Comics to give solo series to the more quirky characters in their IP library.  Characters that haven’t starred in their own series for quite some [...]

Animal Man issue 5 review

The secret of the most successful horror is to both repel and attract – to present to your audience with something they can’t stand to look at, but also can’t bring themselves to tear their eyes from. Bela Legosi utilized [...]

Review: Superman #3

This relaunched version of Superman might be my favorite of the revamped characters in the DCnU.  Superman, in appearance and character, is arguably the most iconic of the superheroes in DC’s line up, and it was a very ambitious move [...]

Review: Animal Man #3

Animal Man is proving to be one of the most interesting titles in the New 52.  Jeff Lemire is writing Animal Man as less of a superhero and more of a shaman who traverses the spirit world and communes with [...]

Review: Action Comics #3

Grant Morrison’s take on Superman as a socially conscious superhero is a refreshing update on the Man of Steel.  It seems like the main thrust of his run on Action Comics is not to pit Superman against increasingly powerful supervillains, [...]

Review: Aquaman #2

If there’s a superhero who gets no respect, it’s Aquaman.  He’s the most ridiculed of all the superheroes in the Justice League.  Even Plastic Man makes talking-to-tuna-jokes behind Aquaman’s back.  Yet even though Aquaman is the butt of endless jokes, [...]

Review: Wonder Woman #2

I admit that I haven’t read any Wonder Woman comics except for the first issue of this series.  I’m familiar with the premise of the character and her origin story, but outside of her appearances in Justice League comics and [...]

Review: Animal Man #2

Review: Animal Man #2

This second issue of Animal Man cements this comic as one of my favorite new series in the relaunch of DC Comics.  Jeff Lemire caught my attention with his creative work on Superboy, and I think he’s hitting it out [...]

Review: Superman #1

This comic is our first glimpse of Superman in the present of the DCnU and five years into his superhero career.  Unlike Action Comics #1, where we see his early days as a costumed crusader, Superman #1 shows the Man [...]

Review: Aquaman #1

I want to like Aquaman.  Despite the fact that he’s the laughingstock of the superhero world, and he seems like the most ineffectual member of the Justice League,  I’ve always felt that Aquaman had the potential to be cool.  Sure, [...]

Review: Green Lantern #1

This issue is one of the few comics in the New 52 that doesn’t break cleanly from recent continuity.  Instead of presenting a reboot of Green Lantern or a retelling of his origin, Geoff Johns continues the story that we saw [...]

The New 52 Bullet Reviews: Week 1

It’s been roughly two weeks since comic book fans had their last glance at the DC Universe as we’ve known it for the better part of the last 30 years. Last week DC Comics launched their company wide universe reboot [...]

Review: Action Comics #1

This first issue of Action Comics features a Superman that will seem unfamiliar to many people, but it’s a take on the character that goes back to the Man of Steel’s roots.  Instead of the familiar compassionate and beatific Superman, Morrison [...]
