REVIEWS (click title for full review):
A book that let's Bruce Wayne shine from behind the shadow of the Bat. Snyder and Capullo have made it all fun again!
DC has up and done it, again! A book I will continue reading - and all thanks to the New 52!
Tony Bedard and Ig Guara gives us an absolutely incredible and accessible first issue, one that is set against a backdrop of cosmic intrigue and action.
J.T. Krul plants the seed of something incredible with the debut of Captain Atom #1.
Superman fans are going to love this one as Green, Johnson, & Asrar give us a Supergirl heavily grounded in the Man of Steel mythos.
In two words this book is - pure energy! Action-packed, exciting and sexy, Lobdell and Rocafort have created the sleeper hit of week three!
The issue has its share of problems as it felt inaccessible to new readers, with the story just too hard to keep track of.
Not a true "reboot," but comes off as fresh and exciting as the best of them! Tomasi and Pasarin have created the best Lantern book so far!
Winick pleasantly surprised me with Batwing #1, so I came into Catwoman thinking only good thoughts.
Overall, an average read. I like the concept of “getting into Dick’s head,” but this can also be accomplished with more interesting dialogue and dramatic panels.
Diehard fans of Birds of Prey may find some redemption within these pages, but I do not. Save your money for Batwoman #2 because this book is a pass.
Sadly, this is one of the few of the New 52 that have not met my expectations.
