Ok so this time around I’ll be telling you all the comics I’ve read since I took a break. There’s a lot so settle in and get ready because I’ve read some pretty good comics.
As a part of the monumental DC Comics—The New 52 event, comics superstars Geoff Johns and Jim Lee bring you an all-new origin story for the Justice League!
In a world where inexperienced superheroes operate under a cloud of suspicion from the public, loner vigilante Batman has stumbled upon a dark evil that threatens to destroy the earth as we know it. Now, faced with a threat far beyond anything he can handle on his own, the Dark Knight must trust an alien, a scarlet speedster, an accidental teenage hero, a space cop, an Amazon Princess and an undersea monarch. Will this combination of Superman, The Flash, Cyborg, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and Aquaman be able to put aside their differences and come together to save the world? Or will they destroy each other first?

I am a massive fan of the justice league because I really love group dynamics and sometimes you just want a really cool action packed epic story with action. It’s much easier to get a more well rounded story and it is more top level because of the numerous characters involved. Justice League: Origin did a much better job of bringing the characters and story together than Avengers world did this. I was dissappointed in Volume 2 as the first one was just such a stand out. I still love Aquaman and I don’t care what anyone says.
So many know my dislike of Superman but Superboy doesn’t fall in the same boat. I don’t quite know what the difference is but this was quite an enjoyable and simple one off comic. I would recommend it to anyone that likes the teen Titans and shares my love of Red Robin.
So there isn’t much to say about Avengers world. It was such a weird and abstract story-line that I found it really hard to get into it. I also got really upset with the sudden art style change. The first half of this had one of the most beautifully drawn art styles I’ve ever seen and it just changed to this really basic style. Now don’t get me wrong it wasn’t badly drawn but in comparison it was just so lackluster and I did not appreciate it.
I picked up Titans because of a review over on Bookwraiths that you can check out here. It was such a shinning review and was well deserved. I really loved this. It was something so fresh and new within the DC world and had my true love Nightwing in it. What’s not to like?! This was just so interesting to get into and I would highly recommend it. I want to link this to the Flash comic as it was jsut so similar but because of the alternate timelines and universes going on it got super confusing. The Flash is one of my most loved heroes and he just felt a little flat in this. I really liked this but my main problem was how each issue finished. It was not a seamless transition making the bind up much worse than monthly comics. There was a cliffhanger in each issue that didn’t continue on in the next and I just don’t understand that decision.
I’m really glad to be back at these comic discussions and would love any comic book discussion you’ve got.
So that’s all folks!
