DC Announces Second Wave of Their New 52 and Some Cancellations

Official Press Release

In May of 2012, DC Comics will release a “Second Wave” of titles as part of its historic DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 initiative. Six new, ongoing series will build on the shared universe and bold concepts introduced in September 2011 with the renumbering of DC Comics’ entire line of comic books.

Featuring a variety of different genres and storytelling sensibilities, the titles in the “Second Wave” will be helmed by some of the most legendary writers and artists in the comic book industry, and will also feature the first ongoing comic book series written by acclaimed novelist China Miéville.

“The excitement of the initial launch of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 was in seeing the re-imagining of these classic characters and concepts,” said Bob Harras, DC Entertainment Editor-in-Chief. “The ‘Second Wave’ is all about world-building.”

DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 “Second Wave” includes:

  • BATMAN INCORPORATED – Writer: Grant Morrison. Artist: Chris Burnham. The acclaimed ongoing writer of ACTION COMICS, Grant Morrison, presents a fresh take on BATMAN INCORPORATED, in which the Batman brand is franchised globally in preparation for a major international threat.
  • EARTH 2 – Writer: James Robinson. Artist: Nicola Scott. The greatest heroes on a parallel Earth, the Justice Society combats threats that will set them on a collision course with other worlds.
  • WORLDS’ FINEST – Writer: Paul Levitz. Artists: George Perez and Kevin Maguire. Stranded on our world from a parallel reality, Huntress and Power Girl struggle to find their way back to Earth 2. Perez and Maguire will be the artists on alternating story arcs.
  • DIAL H – Writer: China Miéville. Artist: Mateus Santoluoco. The first ongoing series from acclaimed novelist China Miéville, this is a bold new take on a cult classic concept about the psychological effects on an everyman who accidentally gains powers to become a hero.
  • G.I. COMBAT – Writer: J.T. Krul. Artist: Ariel Olivetti. Featuring the return of a classic DC Comics series, THE WAR THAT TIME FORGOT, along with rotating back-up stories and creative teams – including THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER, with writers Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti and artist Dan Panosian; and THE HAUNTED TANK, with writer John Arcudi and artist Scott Kolins.
  • THE RAVAGERS – Writer: Howard Mackie. Artist: Ian Churchill. Spinning off from TEEN TITANS and SUPERBOY, this series finds four superpowered teens on the run and fighting against the organization that wants to turn them into supervillains.

The six new series will replace BLACKHAWKS, HAWK AND DOVE, MEN OF WAR, MISTER TERRIFIC, O.M.A.C. and STATIC SHOCK, all of which will conclude with their eighth issues in April.

“Many of the characters from our canceled books will appear in DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 titles, and in some very surprising ways,” said Harras. “We’re developing stories that reach from cultures around the globe to parallel worlds. We’re just getting started.”

It’s the first big release week for DCnU.  Was it worth it and how many of these series will be around for the long run?  Find out my thoughts below.

Action comics #1 – The big behemoth of a title of the DCnU launch has a very green and new Superman dealing with a Metropolis and world that’s just discovered him.  The issues here is this Superman comes off as arrogant and cocky and just an overall dick.  He’s not the icon anymore, he’s just another snot nosed punk.  Add in some questionable artwork and a story that doesn’t totally makes sense at times and this first issue just has a lot of issues.

Story: 6.75 Art: 6.5 Overall: 6.75

Animal Man #1 – I didn’t know a whole lot about the character, but this excellent put together comic book has enough story to get you caught up on the characters and any powers, put you into a dangerous situation, but the majority of the book is focused on Buddy Baker and his family.  It’s a great comic for that reason.  Quiet, focused and more about a family dealing with the father’s powers more than anything else.

Story: 9 Art: 8.25 Overall: 9

Batgirl #1 – Gail Simone takes over the reigns on Barbara Gordon’s return to wearing the cowl.  There’s some issues of how they dealt with her previous condition/situation, but it’s better than forgetting what happened and adds some depth to the character.  Overall, it’s a decent read and more than enough to get me to come back for more.

Story: 7.75 Art: 8 Overall: 7.75

Batwing #1 – A series I went in hoping it’d be good comes out the other end as a solid read with fantastic art.  The story has more than enough there to make me want to come back, but so far it’s just “Batman in Africa” with not enough there to really make it stand apart.  The art though is fantastic and the comic overall is one of the surprising solid debuts.

Story: 8 Art: 9 Overall: 8.25

Detective Comics #1 – I can’t say everything in this first issue makes sense, but all of the right notes are hit.  In general though, the story is too quick, dumping you in the middle of the action and with no build up.  The highlight of the issue is the end, which goes for shock value more than anything.  I’ve always been a Batman fan, but this comic seems to be more of the same than something really new.  But, more of the same is still entertaining.

Story: 7.75 Art: 7.75 Overall: 7.75

Green Arrow #1 – If there was a write by numbers, this would be it.  The hero fighting bad guys and dealing with personal issues.  The monologue as to why he’s doing just that.  The comic isn’t bad in any way, but it’s also not particularly good either.  It’s ok, it’s average, but worst of all, there’s not much reason for me to come back for the second issue, let along the third or fourth.  This is Iron Man with an arrow, not the character we know.

Story: 6.75 Art: 7.25 Overall: 6.75

Hawk & Dove #1 – The issue’s writing isn’t what I have problems with, it’s Rob Liefeld’s mismatched style.  It doesn’t fit for the book and odd positioning, too many pouches, and a lack of mixed emotions for the characters makes me wonder who thought this would work?  The issue itself sets a lot up, but overall, I kind of feel like this is “white people problems the comic book.”

Story: 6 Art: 6 Overall: 6

Heroes for Hire #11 – The new lame bad guy has a name now, and it’s about as solid as the character itself (not so much) and the fight with Purple Man continues.  I can’t wait for this series to get back on track, cause it’s been derailed since it’s been a part of Fear Itself.

Story: 6.75 Art: 6.75 Overall: 6.75

Irredeemable #29 – Plutonian is back and continues to lose his shit as some of the remaining Paradigm do what they can to plan to take him on.  The remaining world leaders also make a deal to end the madness.  There’s also one hell of a twist at the end.  Mark Waid continues to break down the super hero mythos.

Story: 7.75 Art: 7.75 Overall: 7.75

Jennifer Blood #4 – Jennifer continues her war against the mob and checks off a few other bad guys, but not before she takes care of some paid assassins too.  the series is over the top violence with a strong female lead.  The ending also brings a twist that should make the comic stand out from being a female version of The Punisher.  The comic is so wrong in so many ways, but it’s entertaining.

Story: 8 Art: 7.5 Overall: 7.75

Justice League International #1 – The tenuous relationship between the members of the team has made the series somewhat interesting, but it’s not enough to really blow me away to the point I want to come back for more.  The ending also seems like a poor copy of something the X-Men might fight.  Again, this is a comic that there isn’t really anything that’s wrong, but nothing that blows me away either.  The series does seem like it has a lot of potential though.

Story: 7 Art: 7.25 Overall: 7

Mega Man #5 – With the first arc over I wasn’t sure where the comic would go from there.  The original robots have been defeated and Dr. Wiley is in jail, but sure enough, the world seems to be expanding with a fun action comic aimed at kids and their nostalgic parents.  A fun read.

Story: 8 Art: 8 Overall: 8

Men of War #1 – An attempt to update Sgt. Rock, the series has potential but falls a bit short.  The military sends Rock and a squad in to retrieve a Senator when it looks like superhumans get in their way.  There’s also a back up story that’s a bit of a throwback and feels like propaganda.  Both together are just ok.  There’s so much potential in this series, but it doesn’t meet it in any way.  The art even is a bit of a let down with figures that seem too boxy and fat.

Story: 6.75 Art: 6.75 Overall: 6.75

Moon Knight #5 – Moon Knight has to deal with the cops now as his presence on the west coast isn’t appreciated.  Bendis does a great job of a character who has lost his mind, but at the same time has kept it somewhat together.  One of the best Marvel comics on the market right now.


Story: 8.5 Art: 8.75 Overall: 8.5

The New Avengers Annual #1 – The Revengers come calling and put the beat down on this team.  I can’t say that Wonder Man doesn’t have a bit of a point.  What’s more impressive is this is the first annual I’ve enjoyed in a log time.  Just a brutal fight and some great art.

Story: 8.5 Art: 8.5 Overall: 8.5

O.M.A.C. #1 – When you say the name Jack Kirby so many would give you the impression the man could do no wrong.  While I appreciate his contributions and his art style, I’ve never been the biggest fan of a lot of the characters he’s created.  O.M.A.C. comes off as two people attempting to do Kirby, and it’s not done very well.  I’m sure there’s people who will gush over it, but it’s just not for me.

Story: 6.5 Art: 6.75 Overall: 6.5

The Punisher #3 – The Punisher versus the Vulture in a forgettable third issue.  There’s nothing horrible with the issue, but there’s nothing that makes it stand out or makes it a must read in this story arc.  The art is really good though, but it’s just one part in a much larger story and it seems like a non-vital one.

Story: 6.75 Art: 8.25 Overall: 7

Static Shock #1 – There’s some I liked and some I didn’t.  The issue is ok, but the tone, the story just didn’t work for me.  It was rushed at points, not explaining enough and other scenes dragged on for too many pages.  There’s also a few spots that made me pause and linger to figure things out.  This isn’t the launch I’d have hoped for with this series.

Story: 7 Art: 7 Overall: 7

Stormwatch #1 – A first issue that’s all set up.  Characters are set up as to how powerful in relation to one-another they are.  Powers are explained.  Mysteries are thrown out there.  It’s all set up, and for that, it doesn’t really blow me away.  This is 3 or 4 short scenes as opposed to a long coherent narrative.  Even with that though, there’s enough here that I want to see what the second issue holds.  Hopefully, it’s more of a narrative than scenes played out.

Story: 7 Art: 7.5 Overall: 7.25

Swamp Thing #1 – See the expand review here.

Thunderbolts #163 – The Thunderbolts in the present reflect on their screw up while the Thunderbolts in the past figure out that’s where they are.  Along comes an interesting pair.  There’s something fun, campy and retro about the comic, like it’s back to focusing on bad guys being somewhat bad.  Fun overall.

Story: 7.75 Art: 7.75 Overall: 7.75

Wolverine #15 – Fifteen issues in and the series is finally getting good.  Logan is dealing with the damage he’s caused and his actions in the last arc.  The story has a lot of heart and ok art.  Hopefully this is the beginning of an uptick in the series.

Story: 8 Art: 6.75 Overall: 7.75

X-Factor #224.1 – If the point one comic’s goal is to introduce new readers to a series, this one does it’s job.  You get a rundown of the team, a good sense as to what the comic is like, but my issue is I’m not convinced it’s enough to bring in a new reader.  Overall, a decent comic, but nothing special.

Story: 7.5 Art: 7.5 Overall: 7.5

X-Men #17 – The X-Men and FF are in another dimension and learn the evil bad guy’s plan.  I yawn.  It’s a pretty average story with some solid art.

Story: 6.75 Art: 8.25 Overall: 7

X-23 #14 – X-23 is still with the FF and weirdness is going on.  There’s some great moments here as she has to deal with the FF and children, but the story overall is only ok.  the art I also think has taken a dip from the beautiful last issues.

Story: 7 Art: 6.75 Overall: 6.75

So, for the fun of it, I’m going to be collecting all 52 DC #1 issues. And I’m going to review them all. Keep in mind, though, that I’m generally a Marvel fan and, while I’m working may way through DC’s recent big events, I’m only up through the middle of Countdown and I haven’t read any of DC’s non-event comics in a long time, so I’m coming at these stories with a bit of a disadvantage in terms of chronology and character knowledge. Since DC is certainly trying to attract new readers, though, this makes me come at them with a perspective similar to their hypothetical new fans…

Action Comics #1 (DC) – This starts off really, really strong and then completely falls apart. In the beginning, Supes is hardcore, very different than what we’re used to seeing and there is some great art that shows him in this more menacing (to evildoers) way. He even drops a criminal off the top of a building to get him to confess (he catches him before he hits the ground). It’s all downhill from there. The art deteriorates. The story gets weaker. Superman’s alter ego is apparently Harry Potter. And Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen apparently take out Will Eisner’s The Spirit on a train that may actually kill Superman and, at a minimum, makes him bleed from the brain (presumably because of the strain). Oh, and Superman is wearing cuffed blue jeans. Really.

Story: 7 Art: 4 Overall: 5.5

Animal Man #1 (DC) – Now we’re talking. I’ve heard the tales of the quirky and entertaining Animal Man comics of the past without ever having read them. If they are anything like Jeff Lemire and Travel Foreman’s brilliant debut, then I’m a big fan. This is my favorite comic of the bunch. It has amazing art that takes chances and has a tale that starts out funny and revealing and then gets creepy as hell. This is comics at its best.

Story: 10 Art: 10 Overall: 10

Batgirl #1 (DC) – I’ve heard a lot about Gail Simone from people whose opinions I respect a lot but I think this might be the first thing she’s written that I’ve read. For the most part, it’s good stuff. The story is entertaining and the character is compelling. But when the work the Killing Joke plotline into this one and explain how Barbara Gordon is not only able to walk again, but be a full-fledged superhero, they explain it simply by saying it’s a “miracle.” That’s it. I’m not a fan of that at all and it makes me a bit angry as a reader. Maybe they’ll explain it better in future issues, but it seems like they are cheating at this point. The issue is still a good one, though, because the end is a shocker that is quite amazing.

Story: 8 Art: 8.5 Overall: 8.25

Batwing #1 (DC) – To be honest, I have no knowledge of this character before this issue and the split timeline in the issue coupled with the cliffhanger ending is a bit confusing. I’m sure they’ll clear it up next time around, but it left me with some major questions that weren’t satisfying. The ending is hardcore, though, and guarantees I’ll read issue #2.

Story: 7.5 Art: 8 Overall: 7.75

Detective Comics #1 (DC) – This really follows in the footsteps of the Dark Knight movie, creating a dark world where the Joker is freaking insane and we’re not really sure that Batman is much more sane. The action is brutal and intense and the story is actually creepy and scary. I’ve never heard of Tony S. Daniel, the writer, before, but I’ll pay attention to him in the future. The final panel in this one is one of the more shocking panels I’ve seen in a superhero comic.

Story: 10 Art: 9 Overall: 9.5

Green Arrow #1 (DC) – This one is a bit of a disappointment. Not because it’s bad, but because it isn’t good enough. This is the most badass Green Arrow I’ve ever seen, but he may be a bit too badass for his actual skill set. At one point he fights some electricity-shooting villain who chats with him for multiple panels without ever attacking Green Arrow for some reason, allowing GA to just come up and knock him out, despite being much more powerful than our hero. And while I love the cover, the interior art is a bit too cartoony for my tastes.

Story: 7 Art: 6 Overall: 6.5

Hawk And Dove #1 (DC) – A few things some up this issue: 1) Deadman appears as a guest, but he never has feet in any shot. 2) Early on Hawk appears to be beating up some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents because he envies their pouches, of which he has none. 3) In the middle of the comic there is a massive shot of a blonde woman saying something that appears to be very important. It’s an incomplete sentence, though, and she isn’t identified and doesn’t appear in any other panels anywhere in the comic. Maybe Dove is blonde when she’s a civilian, but I don’t know, so this baffles me to no end. 4) Despite what the comic tells you “Hawk” and “Dove” are not magic words. Many people have used them in conjunction without turning into superheroes. 5) Hawk appears to hate women. 6) This is exactly what you’d expect from a comic with Rob Liefeld’s name on it.

Story: 3 Art: 1 Overall: 2

Justice League #1 (DC) – This is a good superhero comic, in my mind. Unlike a lot of these other issues, this one really is about establishing the series and the universe and the characters. It’s good to have an issue do that. I found it unexpectedly funny and thoroughly entertaining. It’s a small part of a bigger story, but it’s one that I want to keep reading. When this first arc is collected as a trade, I fully expect it to be a great read.

Story: 9.5 Art: 9 Overall: 9.25

Justice League International #1 (DC) – This one has potential, particularly with the trio of Booster Gold, Batman and Guy Gardner. Their interplay seems like it will be one of the driving elements of the series. I don’t like that the international characters come across quite stereotypical and the overall premise seems a bit contrived, but it’s worth a read.

Story: 7.5 Art: 7 Overall: 7.25

Men Of War #1 (DC) – Conceptually this one baffled me more than just about any of the new 52. The execution doesn’t make any more sense. It’s not bad, but I’m trying to imagine why I would want to read this. The Sgt. Rock opening story is largely dull, although having the soldiers at the forefront and the super-battle as the backdrop is an interesting idea. I don’t know where the second story is going, but I found it a bit too jingoistic for my tastes. Maybe it’s an ironic story that will flip the tables on the annoying characters from part one, but I can’t figure out any reason I would come back for issue two to find out.

Story: 5 Art: 6 Overall: 5.5

OMAC #1 (DC) – I love this. It’s a pure Jack Kirby tribute and it’s very well executed. The story leaves a bit to be desired and hopefully it’ll be explored a lot more as the issues come along, but this issue is fun and has a nice surprise at the end for longtime DC readers.

Story: 8.5 Art: 9.5 Overall: 9

Static Shock #1 (DC) – I know nothing about Static Shock. This seems like it’s aimed at kids (there’s a television cartoon, right?), but it has adult themes. And I don’t really like the characters. And the villains don’t make any sense to me. Why am I reading this?

Story: 5 Art: 6.5 Overall: 5.75

Stormwatch #1 (DC) – Another series I know has some history, but I don’t know that history and this comic only barely makes me want to learn more. Martian Manhunter’s presence helps ground the series for me, but the story jumps right in with characters I’m not familiar with and doesn’t tell me much about them, so it’s hard to follow or care about them. It isn’t bad, though, and once I learn more about the characters, I might like it more.

Story: 7 Art: 7 Overall: 7

Swamp Thing #1 (DC) – This is good stuff, too. I remember reading some of the Alan Moore Swamp Thing issues from back in the day and I have good memories of them. This seems true to what I read back then, with a strange tale being told that is mysterious and leaves you wanting more. It isn’t perfect, but it’s good enough to bring me back for multiple issues to see where this goes.

Story: 8.5 Art: 8 Overall: 8.25

So, for the record, I am already done with Static Shock, Men of War and, obviously Hawk and Dove. Stormwatch and Action are hanging on by a thread. I’m not sure yet about Batwing or JLI, although the Batman presence keeps them alive. Batgirl is solid and Green Arrow has potential. I’m all in for Animal Man, Detective, JL, OMAC and Swamp Thing and will keep reading them.
