Fury of Firestorm
One of the writers has drawn things for people who are scum and has opinions on people that come from similar backgrounds to me that are deeply offensive.
Not touching this.
The Savage Hawkman
I’m not a huge fan of the turn super hero comics made in the 80s which was towards ‘darkness as realism.’ Especially when the only ‘realism’ involved is just people being torn limb from limb. What does this have to do with Hawkman? The title. It just does nothing for me. Savagery isn’t what I want from Earth Hawkman. Maybe from space cop Hawkman, but Carter is the grimyest archeologist ever. And the dude doesn’t ever smile.
I’m passing on this.
Where’s Connor Hawke? Where’s Mia? Oh well. While I appreciate long bow and I really enjoyed Year One and the stuff where he was mayor for five seconds I haven’t been enjoying the character for quite some time now.
I don’t have anything against this book, just not interested.
Justice League International
Its like the justice league, but from the rest of the world complete with Batman. I like a good bit of the team, but I just cannot get excited. I wonder if this is a full roster or only half like the regular lead book. This book currently is half female and almost half not white. Impressive for a company that puts monkeys in control of all of Africa.
This is one where I will definitely flip through the first few issues and hope it is good enough to warrant buying a trade.
My only history with the character is either him as a bit player in another book or the action comics backup two years back. I’m not buying this book. I am just ….eh to it. No feelings at all either way. Hope its good, just don’t care.
Let’s get this out of the way first. That costume is some bull. Is he in blackface? What is up with those lips? So much uncool going on here. I hope the dude is all about fair play, still. I don’t know if this universe has checkmate or the JSA and so I wonder what his role is. Just a solo guy fighting computer stuff? Will it be a spy book?
That said, I love the character so I am going to give the book a try.
DC Universe Presents
This is my kind of book. One off stories, world building, character creation, what is not to like? Its told on arcs. Its not one off stories. That’s what isn’t to like. These books are screaming to be read collected. Why would I buy it monthly?
I may check out the trades.
That’s it for this lot. Next are the Green Lantern books.
