DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Parts 24 and 25

 

Since there was only one ongoing this week and I was disastrously behind with last week’s reviews, I’ve just rolled them together in one article.

As usual, each comic is scored out of five.  From here on out, I’m only going to update the leaderboard once a month – at the end – to show which are consistently excellent, which are on the rise, and which are circling the drain (excluding reviewed one-shots and mini-series).

Warning, there could be spoilers ahead, although I try to avoid them.

DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Part 23

Having recovered from the medication-induced frenzy of giving practically everything a four or higher last week, I’ve turned the spotlight on this week’s New 52 comics.

As usual, each comic is scored out of five and at the end I have a cumulative leader board to show which are consistently excellent, which are on the rise, and which are circling the drain (excluding reviewed one-shots and mini-series). 

Warning, there could be spoilers ahead (although I try to avoid them).

DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Part 22

A debilitating toothache has made it hard to read, let alone review, comics this week, but I persist.  Apologies if some of the below isn’t my best work.

I don’t know if painkillers are leveling me out, or what, but I seem to have dished out a lot of 4s this week (and no obvious failures).  Either these titles have achieved a fairly high level of quality across the board or I’ve completely lost it.  You decide.

As usual, each comic is scored out of five and at the end I have a cumulative leader board to show which are consistently excellent, which are on the rise, and which are circling the drain (excluding reviewed one-shots and mini-series).

DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Part 21

Thanks to my wife taking the children to visit their grandparents for a night, I had a little extra time to read comics this week, hence the early delivery of my habitually late One Sentence Reviews.

As usual, each comic is scored out of five and at the end I have a cumulative leader board to show which are consistently excellent, which are on the rise, and which are circling the drain.

DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Part 20

Okay, this is it.  This is the week in which all of my One Sentence Reviews will be genuine, single sentences.

Every week I bend, twist, break, coerce, violate and traumatise the English language in order to squeeze most of what I want to say into mega-mutant sentences.  I don’t apologise for indulging myself in this way because I enjoy it too much.

But this week, just to prove that I can do it, I’m going to play by the rules.  I have no idea what next week will bring.

As usual, each comic is scored out of five and at the end I have a cumulative leader board to show which are consistently excellent, which are on the rise, and which are circling the drain.

I have also reviewed the mini-series issue from this week but it isn’t included in the leaderboard.

DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Part 19

Between work, delayed comic deliveries, an understandably demanding five-week-old daughter and my almost three-year-old son thinking my tablet PC (on which I read the comics I don’t collect in hard copy) is exclusively his for the purpose of playing Angry Birds – my New 52 One Sentence Reviews are becoming increasingly late.

I apologise, but am stubbornly committed to continuing my series and I know that, because of the leaderboard, dropping the ball just once means the whole thing is over red rover.

So, better late than never (like Justice League #5, I guess) … here are last week’s reviews.

Each comic is scored out of five and at the end I have a cumulative leaderboard to show which are consistently excellent, which are on the rise, and which are circling the drain.

I have also reviewed the mini-series issues but they aren’t included in the leaderboard.

DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Part 18

Once again – with gusto – here are my New 52 One Sentence Reviews.

Each comic is scored out of five and at the end I have a cumulative leader board (averaging the scores of each title) to show which are consistently excellent, which are on the rise, and which are circling the drain.

I have also reviewed the mini-series issues but they aren’t included in the leaderboard.

Warning, there could be spoilers ahead (although I try to avoid them).
