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.

DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Part 18

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

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

DC New 52 – One Sentence Reviews, Part 14

By the time you read this, there’s a good chance I’ll be a dad for the second time … but I still found some time to read some DC comics and write some 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.
