So, continuing my completest run through of the New 52, I’ve gotten through Wave 2. It always takes awhile as I wait for the library to get all the books, but I made it. Also the decision was made to discontinue reading volumes that didn’t generate enough Wave 1 interest. So here it is, Wave 2!
The Best – Titles I really liked
Batman: The Dark Knight
Batman and Robin
The Good – Titles I liked, but not as much
Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E.
Justice League Dark
DC Universe Presents
Green Lantern Corps
Green Lantern: New Guardians
The OK – Titles that have some good things, but are mostly nothing special.
All Star Western
Birds of Prey
Justice League International
Red Hood and the Outlaws
The Ugly – Avoid at all cost
Dropped – Wave 1 was no good, so I stopped reading.
Legion of Superheroes
The Ravagers (A new series, but the Culling storyline was so lame, I didn’t even bother with it)
The Savage Hawkman
The Fury of Firestorm
As you can see, I dropped a whole bunch of them. But really, most of them are from the Young Justice line and have to do with the Teen Titans or Legion of Superheroes, who I really don’t like in the first place. Batman had a really good wave, and the Scarecrow story in Batman: The Dark Knight, was the best Scarecrow story I’ve read, ever. Superman is very underwhelming in both his titles. That being said, even the “OK” books are decent reads, and the stories coming up are good (Rotworld for one). On to Wave Three, with some new titles, so here…we…go.
Side note: Wave One books canceled were: Mister Terrific, Hawk and Dove, Static Shock, Blackhawks, Men of War, and OMAC. New titles for Wave Two are: Earth 2, Worlds’ Finest, Batman Inc.,The Ravagers, Dial H, and G.I. Combat.
