DC Rebirth Recap & Review: Comics Released 2/1

Welcome to Graphic Policy’s DC Rebirth: Recap And Review where we take a look at the comics released under DC‘s Rebirth banner and try to work out just how accessible they are for new readers – we’ll also be providing  recap of sorts for the relevant story beats up until the issue in question in order to help you figure out if the series is something you’re interested in.

Each comic will receive a rating of Friendly or Unfriendly based on how easy it was for
new readers to pick them up; the ratings are based solely on the issues released in the post-Rebirth ongoing series. More consideration regarding the comic’s accessibility will be given for the specific issue being read rather than the series overall, but if reading a back issue will help, then that will be mentioned. Generally, the quality of an issue won’t be discussed unless it directly impacts a new reader’s enjoyment of the series.

You may notice that not every comic is covered week to week, and that’s because I  sometimes forget to read them  (although that doesn’t happen often). If I have missed an issue, typically I won’t go looking for back issues to catch up on events – this feature is all about accessibility for new readers, after all.


 

Aquaman #16 Aquaman stopped a war between Atlantis and the US instigated by a shadowy corporation, NEMO. This Friendly comic picks up in the aftermath of that battle.

Batman #16 Tom King has been weaving his overarching tale across multiple issues, so there’s a lot to go over for this recap. I’m lazy, so let’s keep it real short; Batman needs a villain to help a superhero introduced in Batman #1, and Bane also needs the villain to keep him off venom, so when Batman “rescued” said villain from Bane, he wasn’t happy. This Friendly comic is worth reading for the Batburger scene alone.

nightwing-14-coverCyborg #9 Uh… so I genuinely don’t remember what’s going on here, and that made this issue somewhat Unfriendly. If you want to read this, it’s best to check out either the trade, or the previous issues.This is after all the ninth part of the current story…

Green Arrow #16 A transition issue between story arcs, this issue wraps up a tale in which Green Arrow was framed for murder by the Dark Archer while simultaneously battling some violently crooked cops. Oh, and Ollie’s sister had vanished for a bit but seems to be back now.  It’s Friendly in a round about kinda way.

Green Lanterns #16 This series has been one of the most new reader friendly of all of DC’s post rebirth comics thanks to the love-it-or-hate-it habbit from Sam Humphries of introducing everything at the start of each issue. I could do a recap here, but there’s honestly no need, because it’s Friendly enough as is.

Justice League #14  This is a Friendly standalone issue that really doesn’t need a recap (even though you’ll think it does at first).

Midnighter And Apollo #5 The penultimate issue of the series is actually quite Friendly all on it’s own. Yeah, you’ll miss some nuances and  little bit of the “whys” but you can read this no problem.

superman 16 cover.jpgNightwing #14 Wrapping up the first arc that has Nightwing back in Bludhaven, we find Nightwing trying to stop a murderer and clear some ex-villains who were framed for murder. This is a fun, relatively Friendly comic.

Superman #16 Somebody is stealing the powers of Supermen,/women/rabbits from across the multiverse for some reason or another. Our Superman has a plan to rescue them, and volunteered as bait so the multiversal Justice League can track and save him and the others. Even with the summary, this will be hard to follow as it ties into the wider DCU more than you’d think. For that reason, and the fact it’s not all that good, I’m marking this as Unfriendly.

DC Rebirth: Recap And Review For Comics Released 1/25

Welcome to Graphic Policy’s DC Rebirth: Recap And Review where we take a look at the comics released under DC‘s Rebirth banner and try to work out just how accessible they are for new readers – we’ll also be providing  recap of sorts for the relevant story beats up until the issue in question in order to help you figure out if the series is something you’re interested in.

If I have missed an issue, typically I won’t go looking for back issues to catch up on events – this feature is all about accessibility for new readers, after all.


 


ac_cv972_dsAction Comics #972 
 Superman and his wife Lois and their son Jon are from the Pre-New 52 universe. In the post Rebirth world, Lois and  Jon meet an alternate (powerless) version of Clark Kent who was never Superman, and who thinks that Lois is that world’s Lois (who my or may not be dead).Strangely, that’s a lot Friendlier than you’d think. Meanwhile, Superman is defending SuperLex  from two aliens who want him killed for a crime he might commit in the future. Sound familiar?

Batgirl #7 In order to find this Friendly, all you need to do is read it. The previous six issues play almost no part in this issue as far as I can tell.

Batman Beyond #4 Terry McGinnis went undercover in the Jokerz, a group of utterly sane people who worship the Joker, to rescue a childhood friend. It… didn’t go so well. Now his little brother is trying to get a Batsuit to him before things get worse. Friendly, and fun.

Detective Comics #949 So… this issue is the conclusion of the three part Batwoman Begins, and yet it also seems to signify a book end to the first volume of the post-Rebirth comics. It’s not a bad comic, but there’s too many nuances from the lat six or so months to try and recap here. Wait to pick up Batwoman Rebirth #1 and/or Detective Comics #950 if you want a fix of either of  the two heroes in this book. They’ll probably be a better place to start than this Unfriendly issue.

Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps #13 This Friendly issue is basically a recap of the last 12 issues in the series wrapped up in a standalone story set sixty years from now.

Justice League Vs Suicide Squad #6 This final issue of the six issue miniseries. Honestly, if you’re curious, either read the trade or track down the floppies. Starting here will give you jlareb_kfrost_cv1_dsan idea of what’s to come in the DCU, but not what happened in this story. For that reason, I’m not going to stay on the fence with this and not mark it as either Friendly or Unfriendly.

Justice League Of America: Killer Frost Rebirth #1 Best read after the JLvSS mini series, this Friendy comic is a nice insight into the title character.

Odyssey Of The Amazons #1  The first issue of a six part mini that takes place long before Wonder Woman should be Friendly, right? To nobody’s surprise, it is.

The Hellblazer #6 I missed a couple of this series somehow, so I really have no idea what exactly is going on, but I was still able to enjoy the comic. I guess that makes it Friendly, eh?

Six Pack And Dog Welder: Hard-Travellin’ Heroz #6 I’m not going to try and recap this, because it wouldn’t make any sense if I did. Just know that while this single issue is Unfriendly the trade that will inevitably collect the mini should still be on your bookshelf.

Suicide Squad #10 Serves as an epilogue to the JLvSS mini series, so for that reason I’m calling this Unfriendly.

Teen Titans #4 Oh how I love this series. Damian tried to put together the Teen Titans again (they didn’t like him very much) to combat a group of League of Assassins trainees called the Demon’s Fist – a group that Damian used to lead. In order to save the Titans after they barely survived, Damian turned himself into Ra’s Al Ghul…

Wonder Woman #15 Although there are some utterly fantastic layouts in this comic, the story itself wasn’t as easy to follow. To get you caught up, essentially all you need to know is that Wonder Woman had some kind of mental snap and isn’t sure who she is right now. Meanwhile Steve Trevor is on the run from some people. The comic is kinda friendly, but toward  the end of it I was feeling  less and less sure of what was happening.

 

DC Rebirth: Recap And Review

If I have missed an issue, typically I won’t go looking for back issues to catch up on events – this feature is all about accessibility for new readers, after all.


 

aqm_cv15_dsAquaman #15 The conclusion to The Deluge is actually relatively Friendly without a recap.

Batman #15 Catwoman may or may not have murdered a couple hundred people. Batman gave her one last night of freedom in Gotham before he takes her to prison in the morning. After stopping a few crimes, and having a chat, they end up naked on a roof together… This could be a Friendly comic with that recap, but I don’t know if it’s worth your time.

Green Arrow #15 Ollie has been framed for numerous murders by the Dark Archer. He also beat the snot out of a crooked cop who was assaulting a civilian a few issues ago. That’s more or less enough to get you into the visually amazing Friendly comic.

Green Lanterns #15 Is actually an incredibly Friendly issue. We focus on Jessica Cruz’s greatest battle, and it’s a comic that gives us quite an insight into her character.

Justice League Vs. The Suicide Squad # 5 (of six) As you may imagine, this issue sees the story rocketing toward the conclusion of the arc, so what do you need to know to not feel lose? Well, Max Lord – a villain who can influence your darkest desires, who has a misguided sense of eroism – has taken control of the Justice League minus Batman via some kind of mind controlling diamond, and that’s… pretty much it. I’d still recommend you read the series as a whole rather than starting here, but it’s Friendly enough, I suppose.

Nightwing #13 Having just arrived in Bludhaven for the first time post Rebirth in order to find himself again, Nightwing comes across a supervillain support group who are being gradually framed for murder. The Bludhaven PD aren’t thrilled with having a superhero ntw_cv13_dstake up residence in their city, either… this Friendly book has become one of the best Bat family books from DC in recent months.

Superman #15 Last issue had a lot of build up that can basically be boiled down to the following: someone is hunting Supermen across the multiverse, and our Superman has teamed with President Superman and some others to stop them. This is a Friendly, and enjoyable, story.

Superwoman #6 Lois Lane and Lana Lang were both Superwoman until Lois was killed in issue #1. Since then, Lex Luthor has been locked up by his sister (no, we didn’t know he had one either), who has become Ultra-Woman – essentially a very comic book villain version of Lex Luthor who is trying to do something nefarious. The comic is kinda  Friendly.

Trinity #5 Uh… I don’t actually remember too much about the last four issues, but the relevant parts are skimmed over enough in the comic that I wasn’t lost. It’s Friendly enough, I suppose, although  you may want to track down #4.

Rebirth Review: Comics Released on 11/16

Welcome to Graphic Policy’s Rebirth Review where we take a look at the comics released under DC‘s Rebirth banner and try to work out just how accessible they are for new readers.

Each comic will receive a rating of Friendly or Unfriendly based on how easy it was for new readers to pick them up; the ratings are based solely on the issues released in the post-Rebirth ongoing series, with more consideration given for the specific issue being read when it comes to the final rating than the series overall. You may notice that not every comic is covered week to week, and that’s because I have a memory like a sieve and sometimes forget to pick them up. If I have missed an issue, typically I won’t go looking for back issues to to catch up on events – this feature is all about accessibility for new readers, after all.

This week saw a lot of good comics that may not be as accessible as other issues in their respective series, but that’s often par for the course, eh?


aqm_cv11_dsAquaman #11 Thanks in a large part to the flashback sequences in the opening couple of pages, and the expositionary dialogue as the comic progresses, this is a quite Friendly comic that ties up one arc and lays the ground work for the next. The level of accessibility here isn’t something you’re likely to see in a story arc at this point in it’s cycle, which is refreshing.

Batman #11  I’ve read every issue of the series so far and this feels Unfriendly to me. New readers will struggle immensely  if they start here, not least because the issue isn’t all that good.

Cyborg #5 I feel like this is one of DC’s  monthly titles because it feel like a long time since I last read an issue, and I’ve been looking forward to getting my hands on a copy for what feels like awhile. The first half of this comic is very Friendly, and worth the price of the comic alone. The second half… is less friendly, but just as interesting.

Green Arrow #11 Is a beautiful looking comic that uses the double page spread to excellent effect, but it’s not overly accessible for those looking to start reading about the Emerald Archer. Unfriendly, but check back with #12.

gls_cv11_dsGreen Lanterns #11 After ten issues it was bound to happen, but this is the most Unfriendly comic in the Green Lanterns series to date. If you’ve read the last issue or two then you’ll be golden, but starting here may not be as good of an idea. That said, it’s a great read.

Justice League #9 Alright, so here’s the thing. The only way you’ll ever be able to pick up an issue of Justice League is if you have some level of familiarity with the characters on the team. Assuming you do, then you’ll be able to pick up enough clues as to what happened last issue to be able to follow along with the story here. More or less, anyway. A Friendly comic, assuming you’ve half an idea who the members of the League are.

Nightwing #9 A half decent comic that’s an easy read, not too bad to look at, but isn’t all that friendly, or good. You’re better off either waiting for the next issue and reading a synopsis somewhere, or just waiting for the next issue. An Unfriendly place to begin your Nightwing journey.

Raven #3 I find that this is the series that I’ve had the hardest time getting immersed in, and a consequence of that is that I tend to forget the details from the previous issue – ironically enough that’s kind of ideal for this feature. That said, despite not really knowing, or remembering much about Raven, I found this comic surprisingly Friendly, ssquad_cv6_dseven if it isn’t my cup of tea (although I did enjoy it a fair bit).

Suicide Squad #6 There’s two ways of approaching this issue. Either you have no idea who the Suicide Squad is, in which case you’ll be confused as hell here, or you kinda know who they are, which means you’ll be only marginally confused – but  you’ll at least find this to be almost Friendly.

Superman #11 This is the kind of comic that you want to start reading with. It’s not perfect in it’s accessibility (it is part two of a two part story, after all), but it’s more than Friendly  enough to draw new readers into the series. I highly recommend you read this, and maybe even the issue before, as this is one of the better series from DC post Rebirth.

Trinity #3 A fantastic comic that builds on the previous two issues in such a way that leaves new readers scratching their heads. That said, there is a very interesting look into Batman’s psyche and the relationship between DC’s Trinity, but if you’re interested in the series then start with the first issue.

Rebirth Review: Comics Released 11/9

Welcome to Graphic Policy’s Rebirth Review where we take a look at the comics released under DC‘s Rebirth banner and try to work out just how accessible they are for new readers.

Each comic will receive a rating of Friendly or Unfriendly based on how easy it was for new readers to pick them up; the ratings are based solely on the issues released in the post-Rebirth ongoing series, with more consideration given for the specific issue being read when it comes to the final rating than the series overall. You may notice that not every comic is covered week to week, and that’s because I have a memory like a sieve and sometimes forget to pick them up. If I have missed an issue, typically I won’t go looking for back issues to to catch up on events – this feature is all about accessibility for new readers, after all.

This week saw a lot of good comics that may not be as accessible as other issues in their respective series, but that’s often par for the course, eh?



ac_cv967_dsAction Comics #967 Well, whether you’ve read previous issues or not, you can certainly pick this one up and enjoy it. Will you be able to figure everything out? Maybe, maybe not. But you’ll have fun reading this issue, and ultimately that’s the whole point of a comic, right? For that reason, it’s Friendly.

All-Star Batman #4 The best, and most expensive, Batman book is also perhaps the most Unfriendly. If you haven’t been reading since issue #1, you’ll be as confused as your average North American at a cricket match (and most English people too, to be honest), but if you have then you’ll probably be as happy as a pig in muck with this issue.

Batgirl And The Birds Of Prey #4 By focusing more on Huntress, the comic allows new readers to get a foot in the door relatively easily. Not only is this better than the last issue, it’s Friendly to boot, thanks largely to the comic’s plot centering around Huntress’ motivations and not Batgirl or Black Canary’s – thankfully you can figure out where the two meet and enjoy the comic without any hassle whatsoever.

Deathstroke #6 As I’m reading this comic, I’m reminded again of an earlier thought that this would be so much better read in trade. Issue #6 may be Unfriendly, but it’s enjoyable nonetheless.

Detective Comics #944 Much like the other Batman book this week, this is an Unfriendly comic, but unlike All-Star it’s not quite a good.

Gotham Academy: Second Semester #3 A quality book that, being the conclusion to a story, isn’t overly friendly. If the series interests you, then wait for issue #4 – it looks like there’s a new arc beginning then which will be a bit more accessible.

hjglc_cv8_dsHal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #8 is the start of a new story arc for the series, but the consequences of the previous issues have a strong bearing on the beginning of said story, making this just a tad bit Unfriendly as a jumping on point. Still, if you’re looking for a good read, pick up the first trade when it hits shelves, then come back here.

New Super-Man #4 Another fantastic comic from DC this week that you’ll need a little familiarity with to get the most out of it. Despite that, however, it’s still Friendly enough because even though you may not know exactly what’s happening or why you never feel horribly lost, either.

Red Hood And The Outlaws #4 This is a comic that just boarders on the Friendly side purely because of Red Hood’s opening narration. If it wasn’t for that this wouldn’t be an ideal jumping on point, despite the quality of the issue, as very little is spelled out for you – although one could argue that is a good thing.

Supergirl #3 You’re able to get the gist of what’s going on here, and who certain characters are early in the comic, but it’s never quite enough to fully ring you into the loop – but it does mean that this is a Friendly comic. But only just.

Superwoman #4 There’s a nice amount of subtle, and not so subtle, narration and dialogue ww_cv10_dsthat will allow you to get up to speed with the series before things hit the fan mid way through, making this a Friendly issue in the series.

The Flash #10 Starts a new arc by telling a seemingly unrelated story on the first page (but this is comics – it’s bound to be relevant at some point) before telling a more Kid Flash centered story. It’s Friendly, more so than any other issue in the series so far to be completely honest as there isn’t any significant references to previous issues – or other series.

Wonder Woman #10 The origin of Wonder Woman continues to be told in alternating issues, and so long as you’re aware that this comic takes place very soon after Wonder Woman’s arrival to our world then you’ll find this fantastic issue to be very Friendly, as for all intents and purposes it could almost be a stand alone story.

 

Rebirth Review: Comics Released 11/2

Welcome to Graphic Policy’s Rebirth Review where we take a look at the comics released under DC‘s Rebirth banner and try to work out just how accessible they are for new readers.

Each comic will receive a rating of Friendly or Unfriendly based on how easy it was for new readers to pick them up; the ratings are based solely on the issues released in the post-Rebirth ongoing series, with more consideration given for the specific issue being read when it comes to the final rating than the series overall. You may notice that not every comic is covered week to week, and that’s because I have a memory like a sieve and sometimes forget to pick them up. If I have missed an issue, typically I won’t go looking for back issues to to catch up on events – this feature is all about accessibility for new readers, after all.


 

bm_cv10_ds

Aquaman #10 An issue that focuses on prophecy is fairly Friendly, all things said and done. Aquaman #10 focuses on Mera, and by doing that it allows new readers to get their bearings on the current situation enough to follow the story to the next issue.

Batman #10 Is a fairly Unfriendly comic if I’m being honest. It looks great, but it’s not too accessible.

Cyborg #4 As far as jumping on points go, this isn’t ideal. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s either friendly or unfriendly, because I feel it’s right in the middle. As a conclusion, however, it’s great.

Green Arrow #10 The start of a new arc is usually a good place to start reading,  and so long as you don’t worry too much about what the heroes are trying to do on an underground bullet train, you’ll find the Friendly.

Green Lanterns #10 Another week, another Friendly issue of Green Lanterns. Despite being the first issue in a new arc, this isn’t as accessible as previous issues, but it’s still very gls_cv10_dsmuch a good jumping on point for new readers.

Harley Quinn #7 There’s a decent bit of recaping narration at the beginning that lends this a much more Friendly feel than previous issues, despite it being part three.

Justice League #8 This issue has the start of a new arc, and despite having a bit of reference to previous story events, it’s Friendly enough for new readers.

Midnighter And Apollo #2 Picking up right where the last issue left off, this is a very Unfriendly comic – so much so I had to go back and re-read the first issue. But for all that, its very much worth reading both issues; this is a great series, but being a six issue mini, it’s unlikely to have another jumping on point.

Nightwing #8 Having reading previous issues will help tremendously, especially the last issue. As a starting point… it’s just about Friendly on it’s own, but only just.

Superman #10 Anytime Robin gets to interact with the other DC heroes is always entertaining, and this issue is no exception. Luckily, it’s also a pretty Friendly comic.

The Working Families Party’s Brightest Day, Goes Superhero in Email Blast

Politicians and political parties invoking superheroes isn’t anything new. Candidates have done it. Organizations have done it. The Working Families Party sent out an email yesterday with a superhero theme and directly quoting the Green Lantern oath with a twist.

Founded in New York in 1998, the Working Families Party is a political party in the US mainly focused on “jobs, healthcare, raising the minimum wage, universal paid sick days, the student debt crisis, higher taxes on the rich, public education, and energy and environmental reform.”

In the fundraising pitch, the email is a solid one with a focus on individuals at the local level who have helped to make a difference and are now running for office.

You can read the full email below.

In dark Trump times like these, it’s hard to find the glimmer of hope. But wait — look there, Amanda! In hometowns all across the country — Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Salem, Albuquerque, Snoqualmie and more — people are standing up to serve their community.

It’s the Working Families Party Superheroes!

They are taking on the likes of Donald Trump, the NRA, fossil fuel lobbyists, and wealthy donors — without the resources you see in the presidential campaigns.

Meet our WFP Superheroes and then chip in $3 to help WFP turn out the votes they need to win!


WFP Superheroes, from left to right, top row to bottom…

Teresa Alonso Leon runs Oregon’s GED program, helping low-income and working class families fight for a better life. Meanwhile, multinational corporations and wealthy donors refuse to pay their fair share. Now she’s had enough and is running for Oregon State House on a platform of women’s economic equality, public education, and protecting seniors.

Philadelphia’s Chris Rabb is an author, activist and college professor. After he helped over 100 adjunct professors unionize for living wages, he was abruptly “uninvited” to continue teaching. Now he’s running for PA State Assembly to bring the fight for school funding to Harrisburg!

New Mexico’s narrow Republican majority has been passing legislation that benefits big energy companies and ignores public school children. So long-time teacher, mentor and elderly services volunteer, Natalie Figueroa, is running to challenge the Republican Majority Leader and tip the scales in favor of progressive values.

In Las Vegas, middle school teacher Brittney Miller knew that energy sustainability and public school funding couldn’t wait another semester. So she decided to step up and run for State Assembly against a wealthy lawyer who supports tax policies that will help the rich — and leave the rest of us behind.

A family tragedy opened Jason Ritchie’s eyes to the needs of differently-abled residents in Washington state. Now, this Bernie-endorsed candidate wants to fight for working families in the State House. He’s challenging a Trump-like incumbent who opposes women’s reproductive rights, family leave, and raising the minimum wage.

Any one of these WFP Superheroes could be a future Bernie Sanders — but they have to win their elections! WFP is throwing down for down-ballot superheroes leading up to November. You can help elect a new generation of progressive champions all over the country by chipping in $3. Click here to help WFP forge a new future with local progressive superheroes.

POW! Let’s do this!
