We’re getting there, people! One more week and you get to do it all over again with the #2 issues. Or you can mix and match with the other publishers out there. I’m not one to judge.

Week 4 has one of the more diverse weeks for the new DCU and it can be shown in the following:

  • Aquaman #1 acknowledges the large elephant in the room that is Aquaman’s lame duck status, but does it in a very good and deconstructive way that doesn’t demean the new direction. Thank Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis for getting this off on the right note.
  • All-Star Western #1 is Jonah Hex’s foray into the land known as 1800’s Gotham and it’s a great start. If you know Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti’s work on Hex’s previous run, then you know what to expect in the great characterization of the bounty hunter.
  • You never know what to expect when somebody writes and draws a book, but Francis Manapul pulls it off with Flash #1. Easily accessible and in a re-boot that has been comprised of lots of dark and gritty tales, this one can be considered an all-ages pick-up.
  • I had high hopes for Justice League Dark #1 and while it shows potential, the heavy exposition and character introductions takes away from the story. Hoping that is not a trend to come in this series.
  • Part 2 coming up later this week! And don’t forget to check out the our iTunes feed to download the latest and greatest from CBF!
