DC REBIRTH: COMIC RELAUNCH REVIEW (UPDATED)

LAST YEAR DC COMICS RELAUNCHED THEIR COMICS, WHICH IS SOMETHING PUBLISHERS DO TO CREATE A NEW STATUS-QUO, BOOST SALES, OR TO FIX CONTINUITY, OR ATTRACT NEW READERS. NOW IF YOU KNOW ME, YOU KNOW I’M MORE OF A MARVEL PERSON, RATHER THAN DC, BUT I RECENTLY DECIDED TO JUMP IN ON READING DC, BECAUSE IN THE PAST, I’VE TRIED READING DC, BUT MOST OF THEIR COMICS WEREN’T GEARED TOWARDS NEWER READERS, BUT THE NEW RELAUNCH DOES ALL OF THE ABOVE AND IS ACTUALLY HAS SOME OF THE BEST COMICS I HAVE READ IN AWHILE, I’LL ALSO BE REVIEWING MARVEL’S 2015 RELAUNCH SOON AS WELL.

BEST BOOKS

DCU: REBIRTH

THIS IS A MUST-READ TO UNDERSTANDING THE NEW DC COMICS, AND A REALLY GOOD JUMPING POINT FOR NEW READERS.

REQUIRED READING: YES

THE FLASH

I’VE BEEN READING FLASH COMICS FOR A LONG TIME, NOW, INCLUDING ALL OF THE NEW 52 ONES, AND THE RELAUNCH TAKES WHAT’S GREAT FROM THE NEW 52 AND MAKES IT BETTER, THIS IS ALSO ONE BOOK THAT IS ABSOLUTE MUST-READ AS IT TIE’S IN TO DCU: REBIRTH, AS WELL AS TITANS AND BATMAN.

REQUIRED READING: MOSTLY, BUT ALSO IS IT’S OWN ADVENTURE IN OF ITSELF

TITANS

A MUST-READ AND PART SEQUEL TO DCU: REBIRTH STARS THE ONCE TEEN, NOW ADULT TITANS THAT STILL MANAGES TO SEEM LIKE A TEEN TITANS BOK, AND TO BE HONEST IT’S TEEN TITANS, EXCEPT WITH OLDER CHARACTERS

REQUIRED READING: SAME AS THE FLASH, YES, BUT IT’S ALSO IT’S OWN COMIC

BATMAN/DETECTIVE COMICS

THIS BATMAN COMIC REALLY, ACTUALLY, HAS WHAT I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR IN BATMAN COMICS, YOU SEE, I CAN’T READ THE NEW 52 OR MUCH OF ANY BATMAN EXCEPT THE CLASSICS, CAUSE IT’S JUST TO DARK, BUT THIS SERIES SHOWS A LIGHTER BATMAN THAT’S STILL REALLY COOL, ANOTHER MUST-READ THAT TIE IN TO DCU: REBIRTH, AND EVENTUALLY THE FLASH, AS WELL AS ALL OF THE BAT-FAMILY COMICS.

DETECTIVE COMICS IS A BATMAN SERIES, IN WHICH WHERE BATMAN, AND BATWOMAN (DISTANT COUSINS APPARENTLY), TRAIN ANEW TEAM OF BAT-FAMILY HEROES.

REQUIRED READING: PRETTY MUCH, PLUS, IT’S HARD TO NOT READ A BATMAN COMIC WHEN TRYING TO READ DC, DETECTIVE COMICS ISN’T REQUIRED, HOWEVER

BATGIRL AND THE BIRDS OF PREY

I READ THIS BOOK THINKING I’D STOP READING AFTER THE FIRST FEW PANELS, YOU KNOW, CAUSE IT’S SEEMINGLY A TEAM OF ALL GIRLS, BUT THIS BATGIRL COMIC IS ACTUALLY GOOD, AND IS FUNNY AND ACTION PACKED.

REQUIRED READING: NO, JUST A FUN READ

RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS

ANOTHER GOOD BOOK STARRING THE FORMER ROBIN, TURNED ANTI-HERO RED HOOD.

REQUIRED READING: NO, JUST A FUN READ

WORST COMICS

BLUEREB_Cv1_ds.jpg

BLUE BEETLE

SLOPPY-LOOKING ART, AND BORING STORYLINE WITH A FAN- FAVORITE CHARACTER THAT I, TO BE HONEST, STOPPED HALFWAY IN IT’S REBIRTH ONE-SHOT, IT WAS BORING.

REQUIRED READING: DEFINITELY NOT

GREEN ARROW

EVEN THOUGH TONS OF PEOPLE THINK THIS IS GREAT, THE ART IS PRETTY BAD, AND I REALLY, REALLY HATE THE RUDENESS OF THE CHARACTER, TO THE POINT WHERE IT’S ANNOYING, LIKE BB, I STOPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF REBIRTH.

 

 

THERE AREN’T VERY MANY BAD COMICS IN REBIRTH.

NOTE: I DID NOT READ ALL THE TITLES, HERE ARE A FEW I DIDN’T READ: HARLEY QUINN, DEATHSTROKE, SUICIDE SQUAD, BATWOMAN, MIDNIGHTER AND APOLLO, AND JOHN CONSTANTINE.

NOW THAT I GOT THAT OUT OF THE WAY, DC MADE A FLAW WHEN THEY ROLLED OUT REBIRTH, YOU SEE, MOST OF THE MAIN SERIES HAVE A SPECIAL REBIRTH ISSUE THAT CONNECTS DCU: REBIRTH WITH THEIR MAIN SERIES SO BASICALLY, READ REBIRTH ONE-SHOTS, THEN READ #1 ISSUES OF SERIES.

HERE’S HOW TO READ REBIRTH IN ORDER:

DCU: REBIRTH

THE FLASH REBIRTH

1

THEN READ FLASH #1,2,3 AND SO ON, IF YOU WANT TO CONTINUE THE SERIES AFTER THE REBIRTH ONE-SHOT

TITANS REBIRTH

THEN READ TITANS 1,2,3 IF YOU’D LIKE TO CONTINUE THE SERIES

Batman_Rebirth_Vol_1_1

BATMAN: REBIRTH

THEN READ BATMAN 1,2,3, AND/OR DETECTIVE COMICS 1,2,3.

ARE UNDERSTANDING IT NOW? OKAY, YOU BASICALLY CAN CHOSE THE WHATEVER SERIES YOU WANT, BUT YOU MUST READ DCU: REBIRTH, THE FLASH, BATMAN, AND TITANS, AND IF YOU WANT, SUPERMAN

SERIES I’M READING:
