DC Comics #1's [9/21/2011]
The "Nu-DCU' roll out continued this week with the following relaunched titles making the scene.
BEST OF THE BATCH
* Green Lantern Corps #1 (Awesome work by Peter Tomasi, Fernando Pasarin and Scott Hanna)Nightwing #1
Captain Atom #1
Blue Beetle #1
Plus one ultra-groovy, super-cool, bonafide three decades in the making surprise that has blown me away. This legendary unfinished project was originally intended for publication in 1986, but creative burnout tail-gunned "Games" after artist Perez had completed approximately 60 pages of an expected 120 page standalone graphic novel starring the then hugely popular New Teen Titans. Whatever cosmic convergence prompted all parties to settle down and complete this long-gestating book that Titans enthusiasts have been clamoring for for almost thirty years, it is more than welcome. In an odd way this phenomenal book casts a massive damning spotlight on some of the premiere material that the relaunched DCU has cast aside in deference to latter day creators and publishing mindsets, but BUY this book and you'll see why the 1980's New Teen Titans was all the rage and scratch your head over why this lineup of heroes no longer exists. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
New Teen Titans: Games (Wolfman & Perez reunited)!
