Justice League #1 (The New 52)
DC Comics rebooted their entire franchise to re-introduce the legendary heroes that we’ve all come to love and adore to the next generation. The first title that’s now out in the market is Justice League #1 (The New 52). I was able to get a digital copy via the DC Comics App on my iPad for $3.99 (Php170) and I was so impressed that I’m probably going to end up subscribing to this until the very last issue comes out!
What was awesome
DC Comics now knows what makes each character truly shine. This is probably from years of experience with the previous comic books and even their cartoons and movies. They know what makes people like Batman and they’ll make sure you connect with Batman in that way in the comic book. My favorite scene in the entire first issue is when Batman encounters the Green Lantern and he shows him why he’s one of the Earth’s greatest heroes. I won’t get into details so that there won’t be any major spoilers in this post. 🙂
Another cool thing is the new costumes. Superman’s suit looks more like an armor now and they took out the ridiculous exterior red briefs. Here’s a photo of the new Man in Steel:
Thank you DC for the reboot! Looking forward to the next issue!
