Bulk review DCnU

Not every title deserves it’s own spot. I’ll put a bunch here so that we can take a look at the more deserving books.

Batwing #01
Basically an average title from writer Judd Winick. I didn’t care about anything that was going on. It really felt like a second rate Black Panther but the art was very well done. 5/10

Deathstroke #01
The art certainly leaves a bit to be desired as the cover to this is so good. The story itself is okay, not great or terrible. Not sure if I will get the second issue.

Suicide Squad #01
A great concept done much better by the Thunderbolts at Marvel. The main problem is how incredibly predictable this issue was. The second problem is making Amanda Waller a skinny girl. Absolutely no reason for it. And third, Harley Quinn’s costume change is awful. Overall this book was pretty bad. Skip it for now. 4/10

Static Shock #01
A second rate Spiderman book that tries way to hard to be hip and street. Meh. 4/10

OMAC #01
Super surprised by this. This book was a total love letter to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and it totally worked for me. Not sure how long I’ll be interested but for now I am down for a bit more. 6.5/10

  1. Yeah the artwork in Batwing sor to blew me away from what I saw. I’ll be picking some of these up when they go down in digital price. Hopefully Suicide Squad will turn out to be better than most of the reviews so far.
