Wonder Woman #1: I admit that I went in to the thing looking for an excuse to not subscribe to the new run (my pull list is bloated as is, and I’ll be adding some personal favorites soon, like Shazam and Martian Manhunter), but well… It didn’t rise to the occasion to win me over. I’ve never been a huge fan of Donna Troy, but I kind of liked her as “continuity victim/keeper” as presented in 52’s history of the DCU. That’s gone here. And really, was anyone actually fond of the era referenced at the end there? Blah. On the positive, at least they’re building up WW’s rogues gallery, which she desperately needed.
52 #5: Wasn’t impressed with the art, but other than that, really solid. I hope we’ll see more of Alan’s (or perhaps another hero on the front lines of the Crisis) breakdown. Superhero PTSD. This is the “Lost” of the comics world. There’s so much going on, and it’s being meted out in expertly measured doses. The suspense is terrible, I hope it lasts. And it’s pretty damn creepy that Alan Scott has Adam Strange’s eye! At least Adam lives! Yay!
Y: The Last Man #46: “I’m an Ivy League Lesbian, bitch. You honestly think I’ve never fenced before?” Heh (although I’ve always thought field hockey was the most sapphic sport). Sex droids, ninjas, monkies, and tanks. Yet it still holds together.
Detective Comics #820: Man, he’s really mellowed, hasn’t he? An interesting revelation about Officer Harper, I hope that doesn’t mean the Manhattan Guardian won’t be seen again. (See if you can win the nitpicker’s award for continuity error, looks like someone was using the rough draft of Infinite Crisis)
Jonah Hex #8: This book is so up and down for me. One month it’s delivering awesome levels of western badassery, the next it’s a stock plot and predictable as all hell. This is the latter.
