My thoughts on the second week of DCNu 52 books

I picked up seven of the books that came out last week. Here’s where I rank them and if I’ll continue buying… and the ones I wished I had gotten instead…

In for the long haul (books I plan to continue on regular basis based on first issue impressions)

Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. (Almost didn’t buy it and maybe the best book of the seven I read!)
Demon Knights (right up there with Frankenstein, loved this book too)
Batman and Robin
Legion Lost 
Batwoman (With Frankenstein and Demon Knights, best week of the new DC yet)

Get one more issue to hook me and then done

Suicide Squad - This is more for curiosity’s sake, I don’t see me going past the second issue. This was really a bad book.
Mr. Terrific - If this was ANY OTHER BOOK than a Mr. Terrific solo title, it would not even get a second chance. The women are portrayed horribly, I’m already tired of hearing the “world’s third smartest man” thing, and along with Stormwatch HQ and S.H.A.D.E. HQ, did we need a THIRD superhero secret headquarters in some sort of dimensional otherspace? (Considering he’s just him and not a team, Mr. T’s dimensional HQ seems to exist just to show off how smart he is that he could build one.) And riding on spheres? How uncomfortable would that be? And did we need characters to do exposition to call it out to us? And did every black and white person in the book need to call out their race at least once to the readers? UGH! (DAMN! I wanted a Mr. Terrific book so bad, and that’s what I got, a book that was so bad.)

Books I wish I had picked up instead: (Not that I read anything about them yet)

Resurrection Man
Grifter

On the other hand, I DO have to give props to DC for Batwoman #1, a beautiful comic in my opinion.

While Justice League International #1 wasn’t Spider-Island:Avengers by any means, it was probably the best new DC book I picked up last week AND features the return of Vixen to a regular role!

My thoughts on the first week(s) of DC 52

I picked up a total of six books over the last two weeks from the new DC52 launch. I plan to pick up two more from that first week because I’ve had second thoughts on them.

In for the long haul

Justice League (reminded me too much of All-Star Batman which I hated but it’s a Justice League book so I can’t really say no)
Justice League International
Stormwatch

Did enough to earn at least one more try next month

Batgirl - still so much anger here, but I’m going to try to give it a try
Men of War - Would be a more likely ongoing pickup without the $3.99 price and backup story - I thought they had given that idea up?

Not another issue

Hawk and Dove - almost didn’t buy it this month either, but some other books didn’t come in, and I had a morbid curiosity. OK, that itch was scratched!

Going back to get on second thoughts

Superman - I’m as angry about Clark and Lois as I am about Oracle, but I gave Batgirl a chance, and George Perez art, so I guess I’m going to cave.
Animal Man - everything I have seen about this book this week makes me want to to own it.

Even better than all the rest who returned in Stormwatch though, was The Engineer, Angie, who had quite a few good lines in the first issue and played an important part.

Of the new DC 52 books I picked up this week (not so many actually), I really enjoyed probably The Authority, errrr…. Stormwatch the most. Midnighter, Apollo, Jack Hawksmoor, The Martian Manhunter, and here…. Jenny Quantum, the essence of the 21st century.
(and one other character who shined but is getting her own separate posts…)
