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.

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

DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Part 16

As foreshadowed last week, I’m still playing catch-up on my comic book reading/reviewing, but here is last week’s (the final week of the #4 issues) 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 issue but it isn’t included in the leaderboard.

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

Character Study: Teen Titans

To me, the latest issue of Teen Titans feels like little actually happened to progress the story, but that it was mainly building up the characters in it.  So instead of an issue 3 review, I figured I’d do a slight character study instead.  Be warned, though I’ll try to avoid it this time, there could still be spoilers in here.

Retrospective: Teen Titans vol 3 (part 6)

I’ll be looking at the One Year Later stuff now with issues 34-49.  And I’m going to say now that some of these issues have to be Johns’ worst in this series.

Retrospective: Teen Titans vol 3 (part 3)


I’m continuing my Retrospective for the Teen Titans with the Teens Titans/Legion of Superheroes crossover and issues 16-19 (collected in trade as The Future is Now).  Handling a lot with these issues, so I’ll try to keep it from being too long.  I do want to state though that these issues are some of my favorites of this Teen Titans group and Johns is joined by writer Mark Waid for the Legion cross over.
