tmontoya reviewed New Superman #1 Jul 13, 2016
8.5

Quite a good read, starts off with a clean origin story of our "New Super-Man" and leaves us with a surprising ending. This is one of the Rebirth titles I was looking forward to reading and I'm glad I picked it up. I'm in for the first 5 with this one, can't wait to see Yang's take on this new superhero.

Detective Comics is setting the gold standard for Rebirth at the moment. Tynion, Martinez, and Fernandez are knocking this book out of the park. The story and characterization is on point, paired with beautiful artwork, you just can't go wrong reading this title.

One of the better Rebirth books, this actually bridges the Grayson title over to Nightwing, while setting up the story to come. Tim Seeley continues to write the snarky Dick Grayson I love to read. Can't wait to see where he takes Nightwing in the upcoming arc.

The Fix

A story of the crooked cops, scheming mobsters, and corrupt politicians that run things-and the sex toy that can bring them all down. Oh, and the hero is a drug-sniffing beagle named Pretzels. Bad people do bad things to each other in this frenetic, outrageous, sometimes off-putting new caper! If you liked classic crime comics like CRIMINAL and 100...

Good solid intro issue that feels both new and old at the same time. I'm onboard to see where things go from here for the Super-man of China and the way the board is set up, it could be an interesting game. The art along the way is pretty good, if not mind blowing.
