DC Rebirth Roundup: Comics From The 16th and 23rd of May

Welcome to Graphic Policy’s DC Rebirth Roundup where we take a look at most of the comics released by DC 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 assuming we’ve read said series.

Each comic will receive a rating of Friendly or Unfriendly based on how easy it was for new readers to pick them up with only a basic familiarity with the characters.  You’ll also notice that each comic will get a rating that falls on Graphic Policy’s typical ten point scale, so you’ll have an idea if the comic is any good or not (remember quality and accessibility don’t always go together).

Not every comic is covered released will be covered, and that’s because I  sometimes forget to read them  (although that doesn’t happen often), or I really can’t bring myself to pick up the issue (which is more likely).  Typically comics released prior to the weeks covered won’t be featured.


 

AQM_Cv36A shorter entry than is typical this week, as I had less time than usual to read comics… c’est la vie.

Aquaman #36 Arthur Curry was usurped as King of Atlantis  by Coram Rath, who over the course of a dozen issues or so has gone insane… guess who’s going to try and stop him? The comic is kind of  Friendly, and an excellent continuation of the series. Rating 7.8

Batman #47 Finally the conclusion of the Booster Gold gives Batman a wedding present is here. It’s… neither worth reading nor is it a good jumping on point. Unfriendly. Rating: 5

The Flash #47 You’ll find the first issue of a new arc if you pick this comic up,  and despite the build toward Flash War over the past couple months, this is still a relatively Friendly issue. Rating: 7

Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Crops #45  There’s a war brewing between the Green Lanterns and the Darkstars, a group of space vigilantes who believe in a lethal justice solution for murderers – something that the Green Lantern Corps isn’t too happy with. Consequently there’s a tension building, and this Friendly issue will catch you up and set the stage for you going forward. Rating: 8

New Challengers #1 Funnily enough, a first issue is a decent jumping on point. It’s also quite an interesting comic to pick up, and consequently worth your time. Rating: 7

Superman Special #1  It’s Friendly. Rating: 7.5

DC Rebirth Roundup: Comics From The 25th of April and 2nd of May

Welcome to Graphic Policy’s DC Rebirth Roundup where we take a look at most of the comics released by DC 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 assuming we’ve read said series.

Each comic will receive a rating of Friendly or Unfriendly based on how easy it was for new readers to pick them up with only a basic familiarity with the characters.  You’ll also notice that each comic will get a rating that falls on Graphic Policy’s typical ten point scale, so you’ll have an idea if the comic is any good or not (remember quality and accessibility don’t always go together).

Typically only select comics released in the featured weeks will be covered.


 

GA_Cv40Batman #46 Booster Gold decided to show Batman what life would be like if his parents lived, and Bruce Wayne decided he liked it and destroyed the time machine. Dick Grayson is a one word Batman with a penchant for murder, and the world doesn’t get better beyond that. Nor does the comic. An unfriendly 6/10

Green Arrow #40 A solid conclusion to an arc that found Green Arrow in the middle of a war torn country being taken over by a supervillain who just shot our hero in the gut. This isn’t terribly Friendly, but it is still accessible. 7/10

Hal Joran And The Green Lantern Corps #44 There’s a war coming (you’ll sense a theme with that), and the Green Lanterns are consolidating power. A Friendly 8/10

Nightwing #44 Part one of a new arc, so the question is can you pick it up with out any prior knowledge? Kinda. I mean, it’s Friendly enough, but it’s not the best read out there. 5/10

The Flash #46 ….. yeah, it’s not bad. But it’s honestly just a set up issue for the upcoming Flash War, so it is technically Friendly. 5/10

Wonder Woman #46 A relatively easy jumping on point, providing you know who Wonder Woman is. You may not know about her brother, Jason, but that’s not a huge deal. Friendly, and not half bad. 7/10

DC Rebirth Roundup: Comics From The 11th and 18th of April

Welcome to Graphic Policy’s DC Rebirth Roundup where we take a look at most of the comics released by DC 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 assuming we’ve read said series.

Action Comics #1000 So here it is. A thousand issues of Action Comics. The first AC_Cv1000_var1980superhero comic to crack four digits; because of the historical significance you’re probably going to buy this anyway, aren’t you?

Aquaman #35 Aquaman lost his throne and is now part of a civil war aimed at removing his successor. An Unfriendly comic, but one well worth reading if you’ve gotten this far in the series. 7.2/10

Batman #45 Effectively a new jumping on point, this Friendly comic won’t feel that way at first, but bear with it, as Tom King stays above he mediocrity that has been plaguing his run and delivers an interesting take on the world if Bruce Wayne never became Batman. 7/10

Detective Comics #978 Uh… you know what I have no idea where to start. 6.5/10

The Flash #44 There’s a negative speed force storm destroying Central City, the Flash is fighting Gorilla Grodd and the other Flashes are evacuating the city. This isn’t too bad an issue, indeed it’s a step above the last few, and it’s oddly Friendly for a finale. 7/10

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #42 The start of a new arc that will see space cops (Green Lanters) verses space vigilantes. Friendly and fun. 7/10

Justice League #43 The finale of an incredible arc isn’t typically the best place to start. This Unfriendly issue is no exception. 7.9/10

NTW_Cv43Nightwing #43 Friendly team up issue with Arsenal and Robin. Get your popcorn out and enjoy! 8/10

Red Hood and the Outlaws #21 Bizarro has become addicted to liquid Kryptonite in order to preserve his incredible intellect that has allowed the Outlaws to radically depreciate crime in Gotham. The issue is Friendly enough, and worth a look. 7.3/10

Super Sons #15 Not an unFriendly issue as far as things go, but it will be tough to muscle past the sudden introduction of a character from early in the series. You get only a little back story, and it’s just enough. 7/10

 

DC Rebirth Roundup: April 4th’s Comics

Welcome to Graphic Policy’s DC Rebirth Roundup where we take a look at most of 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. You’ll also notice that each comic will get a rating that falls on Graphic Policy’s typical ten point scale, which is there to help you pick between issues if you only want to check out one or two.

Not every comic is covered week to week, and that’s because I  sometimes forget to read them  (although that doesn’t happen often), or I really can’t bring myself to pick up the issue. 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.


 

SM_Cv44Batman #44 Honestly all you need to know to make this Friendly is that Batman and Catwoman are getting married soon. 8/10. 

Cyborg #21 Part one of a new arc that has lots of big robots and mech fighting and… well the art is solid enough. This is essentially a Friendly comic, but it isn’t great. 5/10

Green Arrow #39 A new arc, and aside from a single line referring to a trial (it was Oliver Queen on trial for a murder he didn’t commit – spoiler he was acquitted) this is an entirely Friendly comic. 7/10

Green Lanterns #44 Another comic with a new arc beginning, and once again it’s a Friendly one. More or less. And I say that having forgotten the history between the Lanterns and the returning character. 7/10

Nightwing #42 Friendly one shot that puts Nightwing into a martial arts film. There’s nothing to recap, honestly, and as long as you just want entertainment this is fun. 7.5/10

Superman #44 Superman and Superboy are on Bizarro World, along with a few others. If you can muddle through the reverse speaking of the Bizarros then you’ll enjoy this Friendlyish issue. 6.7/10

DTC_Cv977Detective Comics #977 The team Batman had assembled to fight crime in Gotham has imploded, with Batwoman, Batwing and Azreal signing up with the Colony – a paramilitary group modeled off Batman. Last issue Tim Drake was approached by the former colony operative responsible for weapons development who wanted to prevent a dark future… As far as thing goes this is a Friendly issue, and one that provides an interesting snapshot into a possible future for Gotham. 7.5/10

The Flash #43 Slightly better than last issue, but this still isn’t great. To recap: Grodd stole the Speedforce from Barry, the Flash family stepped up to save the day, but Barry was a selfish jerk tried to steal back his powers because he didn’t trust anybody else to save the day. Upon getting his powers back, for reasons best attributed to shitty writing, Grodd had control of the Flash family through the Speedforce. While this is Friendly, it’s not something I’d recommend you reading. 5/10

Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #41 Kyle Raynor and Hal Jordan were attacked and captured while checking out a planet that happened to be General Zod’s new home. After a bit of a scrap as the rest of the Corps came to free them, we’re left with Hal Jordan verses General Zod. A Friendly issue that’s basically all a green brawl. It’s awesome. 8/10

HLB_Cv20The Hellblazer #20 It has been far too long since I read a Hellblazer comic, so there’s no recap, but this comic is still Friendly enough and enjoyable enough for new readers to jump in with no issues. 8/10

Justice League Of America #27 It’s a part one, he says. Should be Friendly, he says. It’s not. It’s an Unfriendly opening to a story that does little to draw me in. 6/10

Teen Titans #18 When Beast Boy left the Teen Titans and hooked up with a game company, the rest of the team stopped a bus from crashing into the river – driven by an otherwise great kid. Suspecting foul play, Robin found a doowhatsit in the kid’s brain, and guess which game company was responsible? Friendly and worth a read. 8/10

Suicide Squad #38 Part one of a new arc that finds the Squad being superseded by a one man wrecking ball – the super soldier code named The Wall. The rest of the background is relatively irrelevant as you’re brought up to speed on what you need to know as it happens; the comic is Friendly and entertaining. 7/10

Wonder Woman #43 An average comic at best which is Friendly in its simplicity. 6/10

AQM_Cv34*please note that due to a wonderful error, I lost the first version I wrote this. That said, this is far briefer than normal, and you have my apologies for that as I barely remember the comics at this point.

Aquaman #34 A look at the history of King Rath. It’s an interesting and Friendly look into Aquaman’s current enemy. 7/10

Batman #43 Wait till next issue. Please. Unfriendly3/10

Green Lanterns #43 The Unfriendly-ish conclusion to an arc that had the space cops crossing the galaxy undercover in pursuit of superhuman slave traders. Not bad, as things go, but the series has been better. 5/10

Justice League #41 The Watchtower crashed to Earth, and people want its parts. Despite how it feels, this is Friendly. 

Nightwing #41 An immortal manipulator is responsible for 30-odd deaths in three meetings with Nightwing, and the former boy wonder blames himself. Now, in this Friendly conclusion, we see Nightwing try to do the impossible to stop The Judge. 7.2/10

Super Sons #14 Robin’s mother, Talia Al Ghul, is trying to murder Lois Lane. Guess who’s gotta stop her? Yeah. Enjoy this Friendly romp through comic greatness. 8/10

Superman #43 Super Boy accidentally on purpose visited Bizarro world. Now, Boyzarro has appeared in his bedroom. 7.5/10

HJGLC_Cv40Action Comics #999 Almost a filler story until the huge milestone coming up, but it’s not completely worthless as it ties up a few loose ends and resets Lois’ relationship with her father. Friendly enough at the end of the day, but I’d hold out till next issue at this point. 6/10

Detective Comics #976 Batwoman killed Clayface to save the lives of innocent people and subsequently joined The Colony as the fallout of her actions rippled through the Bat Family. This issue picks up with a new arc that’s still leaning heavily on past issues but is Friendly nonetheless. 7/10

Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps #40 Hal and Kyle Raynor were sent to investigate a planet for a relatively unrelated reason only to find that Zod and his family had conquered it. They fought the Kryptonians, lost, and were captured. Their rings were removed for study. Hal’s ring, being made from his own will, broke confinement andHal made Kyle use it to escape and get reinforcements (who left on an unscheduled and unsanctioned rescue mission). Prepare yourself for the might of Krypton and a lot of Green in this Friendly action packed issue. 8/10

New Super-Man And The Justice League Of China #21 The JLC have come face to face with a young man escaping from North Korea on the back of giant freaking crabs. It’s awesome (and Friendly). 7.5/10

Red Hood And The Outlaws #20 Bizarro is using some kind of green stuff to remain super intelligent, and the Outlaws are beginning to suspect that the genius who has helped them eliminate crime is keeping a secret… 7/10 (Yeah, since you asked, TNS_Cv21it’s Friendly).

Suicide Squad #36 I missed the last issue, I think, but this one is still relatively Friendly6.75/10

The Flash #42 Uh…. dear lord this is a pile of turd. I really don’t want you to read this because it’s awful, but if you must…. Grodd has stolen Barry Allen’s powers and he’s believes that nobody but him can save the day despite there being three other Flashes in the area. The are is sub par as well. 2/10

Titans #21 I may have forgotten most of last issue, but Roy Harper was given drugs (he wasn’t aware of it until afterwards), and is trying to save the world but isn’t having much luck with people believing him. This issue is kinda Friendly, and has a really cool fight scene. 7.25/10

Wonder Woman #42 I’d give you a recap, but the series has taken a turn for the worse, and I either didn’t read the last issue or I don’t remember it. Either way, this is kinda Friendly, but quite miss-able. 5/10

GA_Cv38Batman #42 Just don’t. Even the thought of recapping this leaves a dirty taste in my mouth. Unfriendly. 3/10

Deathstroke #29 Make no mistake, this is a fantastic series. It’s just really hard to read without reading a chunk of it in one go due to the complexity and interwoven genius of the plot. Yes, it’s kinda Unfriendly, but it’s very good. 8/10

Green Arrow #38 This issue caps off a LOT of loose ends. Too many for me to cover here in the detail the comic deserves, but fortunately there is a very brief recap that touches on everything you need to know (save one thing) without actually giving you any spoilers. That one thing that isn’t touched on? Ollie Queen is on trial for the murder of Wendy Poole, a victim of human traffickers that Green Arrow saved and lived in abject terror of being recaptured, so she has remained in hiding since her rescue. Which means the world at large think she’s dead. This issue is Friendly, and not too bad. 7/10

Green Lanterns #42 The Green Lanterns are on the case of some superhuman traffickers, and the case has taken a personal for Simon Baz as one of the victims was a previous date of his. Although it’s sort of Friendly, there’s not much of a flow to the comic as everything seems to rush far too quickly from point A to point B. 6.25/10

Justice League #40 I really have no idea what’s going on here, but for some reason the Justice Leagues are in trouble. Despite missing part one in this arc, the comic is still enjoyable enough to be marked as a Friendly 7/10.

Nightwing #40 You’ll probably be okay to pick this up without much recap, as you can figure out that there’s a long history between Nightwing and the Judge (basically a maybe immortal with his eyes sown shut who is great at manipulation and seeing your deepest desires). In terms of accessibility this is probably a Friendly comic – you’re unlikely to find another clean jumping on point for another issue or two. 6.5/

Superman #42 You’re going to have a really tough time figuring out what’s going on with the first third or so of this comic if you’ve never heard of Bizarro, the anti-Superman who speaks in negatives and otherwise odd yet very endearing speech patterns. Other than that, the comic is Friendly and pretty solid. 7/10

BLUE_Cv18Action Comics #998 Just wait to the next issue. you’ll thank me for it.

Batgirl #20 Penguin and his son, Darksun, have hijacked some satellites. The weather also isn’t ideal. As far as comics go, this is Friendly enough to hop into, and it’s not half bad, either. 6/10

Blue Beetle #18 As a one shot story, you really can’t go wrong with a comic that successfully introduces you to the hero, the mentor and the supporting cast while simultaneously telling a compelling and fun superhero story. Blue Beetle #18 is fun, Friendly and well worth checking out. 8/10

Detective Comics #975 Batwoman shot and killed Clayface because she thought he was about to go all super psycho and kill Orphan. Needless to say, that doesn’t sit well with the Bat-family. The Trial Of Batwoman is a Friendly, and dialogue heavy comic. 7.5/10

Justice League Of America #25 I’ve missed a few issues in this series, but picked this up largely due to the fact it was the first part of a new arc, however alas it’s not the most accessible (meaning that it’s Unfriendly). It’s also not worth reading. 4/10

The Flash #41 Gorilla Grodd has stolen Barry Allen’s Speed Force and frozen time in Central City, which means it’s time for Wally West to step up to the plate and save the day. The issue is sorta Friendly, but whether it’s worth reading is another matter. 5/10

Teen Titans #17 The first part of a new arc. Is it an easy to pick up issue? It is indeed a Friendly one, but it’s just not great. 6/10

Wonder Woman #41 The first part of a new arc, which is generally the safest place to jump on board with any DC series at this point, And this one is probably Friendly, but being honest I couldn’t make it through through this pile of drivel. Friendly or not, this really isn’t worth your time. 4/10

AQM_Cv33Aquaman #33 Although this is a brilliant story, the issue here isn’t the best place to jump in. Mera is dying, but has been nominated for queen of Atlantis. But in order to save her the presumed dead Arthur Curry, under the guise of the Aquaman, must mount a near suicide mission to destroy some magical whammy jammy thing. Bordering on the Unfriendly side of things, this is still a great comic. 8.75/10

Batman #41 Well… I mean it’s the start of a new arc that finds Batman and Catwoman together (they’re engaged now).  But the issue is… not exactly worth reading. 4/10

Batwoman #12 I don’t remember the last issue, but this one will catch you up with the story. It’s Friendly, and a solid read. 7/10

Green Lanterns #41 The Lanterns are working on a case that is basically spelled out on the cover. A Friendly comic that doesn’t need a recap. 7/75/10

Nightwing #39 Tells the origin of the Judge, the man with whom Nightwing shares a rather long history that boils down to “I failed to catch him.” Although more of an Unfriendly issue than not, Nightwing #39 is still a good read. 7/10

Superman #41 A two part arc that finds Superman and Superboy on a planet about to explode, with a race of people waiting for the inevitable end with a religious fervor. Only one among them wants to live, but a slightly depowered Superman wants to save them all… a Friendly comic that has more layers to it than is initially apparent. 8/10

Super Sons #13 You probably know by the logo who the two Super Sons are, and seeing as how this is the first part of a new arc, you’ll find it’s as Friendly a place as any to begin your journey with these two. 8.5/10
