Publisher: DC Comics
Reviewed by Johnny Destructo
Action, suspense, fishnets. What more do you want?
Well, a couple things, actually. Like quality writing, solid art, and strong intelligent female characters. All of which are bases soundly covered in this first issue. Like with many of the positive reviews I’ve given to the DCnU …

Title: Wonder Woman #1
Writer: Brian Azzarello
Artist: Cliff Chiang
Colors: Matthew Wilson
Amidst the myriad of Wonder Women that have populated the DC Universe since her inception, my fave has to be the Diana from Darwyn Cooke’s New Frontier. She wasn’t on the take as far as guff was concerned and her stature promised as much. I have rarely enjoyed Diana as a …

Swamp Thing #1
Written by Scott Snyder
Pencils by Yanick Paquette
Frankly, I feel that this is one of the books that will not get the relaunch attention it deserves; despite a guest appearance from Superman. Not because it is a bad book (it’s not), but because Swamp Thing never really gets big love from the masses. It’s presumably hard work to write …

The War Of The Green Lanterns really had me spooked there for a second, but OH thank OA, Green Lantern is interesting again! Up is down, left is right! Sinestro is Green Lantern.
