DC Universe Presents
Or – “Say What You Will About WTF Month, But That Cover Is SERIOUSLY Goofy-Looking…” When the New 52 kicked off, I was happy to hear that they had an anthology title in the mix, allowing us to see characters other than Superman, Batman and Catwoman once in a while. Now, the grand experiment comes to an end and the cover promises a crossover between the present-day Justice League and Sword and Sorcery’s Beowulf. What’s the deal with all that, you ask (assuming you’re Jerry Seinfeld?) Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “What’s Black And Blue And Read All Over?” It’s weird to think about the “old” DC Universe as a whole. Both Blue Devil and Black Lightning seem to me like relatively new heroes (at least comparatively speaking) but both date back over a quarter-century. Now, the sensational character finds of 1977 and 1984 have come together in the brave new world of the New 52, for all new adventures. How do Black Lightning and Blue Devil fare? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “Their Stories Continue, Even If Their Books Tanked…” Many years ago, I came to the sad conclusion that my favorite titles won’t ever be big sellers with the general public. Because of that sad paradigm, it came to be that I was reading and enjoying roughly 60% of the cancelled product of the New 52 thus far. Although I didn’t read much beyond the first issue of Blackhawks, I appreciated their pedigree, and I have to say that it’s good to see O.M.A.C., Mister Terrific and Deadman again. Your Major Spoilers review awaits! Oh, and Hawk & Dove
Or – “Have Y’Ever Noticed How Deadman Looks A Lot Like Daredevil?” Daredevil’s second costume is ridiculously similar to Deadman’s: Short boot cuffs, short gloves, red bodysuit, big D symbol on the chest. (I suppose Daredevil is technically a Double-D, but… … Y’know, there’s no good way for that sentence to have ended.) Either way, the new DCU wouldn’t be the same without Boston Brand and his body-hopping exploits. But what does the new status quo bring our favorite ghostly presence?
