CBF Quick Picks #86 : The New DCU Has Arrived
The time has come, folks. On August 31st, the new DCU is in full swing and Justice League #1 is the one kicking things off. This was definitely a labor of love put together by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee. They didn’t have to do this book at all, but they chose to. And while it’s a slow burn of an issue rather than epic battle sequences, it sets the stage for a great and new look into what should be the premier title of DC that it hasn’t been the last 10 years.
Marvel didn’t want me left hanging dry that week though. Rick Remender put out another stellar effort in Uncanny X-Force #14 in the continuing Dark Angel saga that sees Archangel assume the mantle of Apocalypse. Jerome Opena makes his way back to art duties, which improves the book tenfold (as if it needed that already). Absolutely the best X-book on the market and am hoping that trend continues for the foreseeable future.
