Week 3 of the new DCU hit two great high notes. Batman #1 kicked off Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s well-hyped team-up and what a team-up it was. It’s safe to say that Snyder has a good feel for the Batman universe, whether he’s taking on Dick Grayson or Bruce Wayne carrying the mantle of the bat. And Capullo brings just enough detail to this issue to make you appreciate this new direction.

At one point, Wonder Woman #1 was that book you really wanted see break the glass ceiling, but couldn’t be sure if Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang could do it. That ceiling got shattered instantaneously when this book came out. I love how it dives right into the story and asks you to enjoy the ride, not needing much exposition or narration to let us know how Wonder Woman fits into this new universe. Time will tell if this finally gets her up there as a book to consistently read that hadn’t been for a long while.

And then there is Catwoman #1. Controversy hit the web when this came out after the last few pages showed her and Batman, ummm, enjoying one another’s acquaintances. It’s not for me, but everybody has their opinion on it. What are your thoughts?
