So I guess the big comic news out there is that DC is rebooting the entire universe. I must say at first I was kind of excited, but while there are some titles that I’m looking forward to, nothing has really grabbed me by my Batmans. Also why does the Bat Family have 11 titles and yet there is no consideration to things like Secret Six? Honestly this relaunch just doesn’t seem like it will change anything other than costumes.
Still having said all that we must wait and see before we can truly reach a verdict. I know us nerds tend to like to jump the gun, but I know that I’m still going to be buying all of the first issues. I’ll wait to I know a little bit more, but if anything is going to start getting me excited for this relaunch it’s going to be the Green Lantern books. I would have added Flash to that list but it looks like they’ve taken my sweet Wally away. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
So let’s get down to my favourite comics of the week.
Frankenstein and the Creatures of the Unknown #1: Probably my favourite comic of this week. It surprised me and just was nothing but good times for me. I have a love of the Universal Monsters and this just tapped into that. Now the story itself isn’t that complicated, but there is action, there is a decent pace and as I said it’s fun. With Flashpoint, a lot of the comics related to it seem very serious, and this was just a nice diversion. The take on Frankenstein is a unique one, and I was digging this moralistic monster. I’m hoping that with further issues we will get to know the other characters in the group. Can’t wait to get me some more monster action.
