NEW 52. NEW 52. NEW 52.
And so it begins. DC Comics relaunch starts today with the Justice League #1. I've been reading around and the reviews have been mixed. Some people like it and are excited for more and other people are underwhelmed and unimpressed.
Obviously, a lot of people were not in favor of this move but only time will tell if this endeavor truly succeeds or fails. It's just the first issue so yeah, let's not get ahead of ourselves and give it a chance.
I don't actually care all that much about the Justice League. I'm more looking forward to something else entirely. Of course, Batgirl #1 with Barbara Gordon is one of them. It will be written by Gail Simone and pencilled by Ardian Syaf and Vicente Cifuentes. This will be coming out September 7th.
I'm also looking forward to Red Hood and the Outlaws #1. I love Jason Todd, even though he may be possibly insane, and I'm looking forward to a series about him and his own team of vigilantes and non-heroes. A team that includes Starfire and Arsenal. The series will be written by Scott Lobdell and pencilled by Kenneth Rocafort. Red Hood and the Outlaws is set to be released on September 21.
