Justice League #1
Justice League #1 is everything I wanted from this book. With a creative team of top talent and a lineup of DC’s top guns, this is a no-brainer pick-up. This finally feels like the Rebirth of the Justice League that I’ve wanted all along.
Man of Steel #2
Man of Steel #2 is in the books and Brian Michael Bendis’ run on Superman is looking pretty…great? Really, really good? Epic? Whatever adjective you’d care to use, Bendis is exceeding all the hype of his arrival on the Superman titles.
Dick Grayson doesn’t know what he can believe as he meets the source of the problems plaguing Bludhaven. Writer Benjamin Percy has quickly settled into his new gig and has established a take on Nightwing that’s both respectful to where he’s been and just as importantly where he can go.
Percy has the Nightwing/Batgirl relationship dynamic down so well I can’t wait to see him bring in some of Grayson’s Titans pals. For now with The Bleeding Edge, Grayson has his hands full staying one step ahead of a technological villain. That’s a category villain that Nightwing rarely faces and Percy is incorporating some interesting offensive strategies to throw at his hero.
Chris Mooneyham art along with Klaus Janson’s inks really give the book a throwback visual flavor. After dynamic artists like Javier Fernandez, this takes some getting used to, but it gets the job done.
Nightwing was starting to get into a bit of a rut so I’m glad Percy has re-energized the title and given it a kick to get back to the heights it enjoyed at the onset of Rebirth.
