DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Part 32

I rated the last four comics I read this week all 4 or over … which was a relief because before that, only one issue had attracted as much as a 4.  So it was a hard slog through the start of this batch, with a strong finish at the end. 

As most of you will be aware, I’m going to wrap-up my One Sentence Review series with next week’s last batch of #8s.  I’m currently a full week behind and the leaderboard concept kind of flies out the window with the first round of cancellations and new titles coming online.

I expect to be blogging/reviewing less, at least for a little while, as I’ll be starting a new job this month and want to focus some energy on creative writing projects.  I’ve written the first two scripts for a comic book and want to write at least six issues, and I have a long-neglected novel in the works that I must reacquaint myself with.

I’ll post read/RANT articles when and if the bug bites me, though.

Anyway, as usual, each comic is scored out of five. 

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 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.

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