We’re wrapping up the 1st week of the exhausting amount of titles that is coming out of the new DCU. Believe me, it’s exhausting – wait till you hear the podcasts I’m putting up soon for week 2.

The great thing about these new DC books is that all of these have the potential to surprise me. 4 of those of the the week 1 batch epitomized that:

  • Justice League International #1 was not the Judd Winick-like book I was looking for, but it was a fine Dan Jurgens book to re-introduce the classic 80’s team to new readers.
  • Batwing #1 spins out of the Batman, Inc. title and gives us a taste of what Batman would do if he was set up in the Congo.
  • I did not know what to expect out of Omac #1 at all and that was what made it fun. Think Jack Kirby ideas and you got a great book.
  • It stumbled out of the gate for me, but Stormwatch #1 was a fine start by Paul Cornell. I attribute the stumbling to my lack of Wildstorm knowledge more than to anything else. I’m sure in Cornell’s capable hands, it will pick up and give me explanations as to why this undercover authority team needs to be around.

Week 2 podcasts are coming soon! Stay tuned!
