My First DC Comic.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Justice League Vol. 1: Origin (The New 52) (Hardcover)
This is my first DC comic, and I have to say I am truly impressed. I have always been a Marvel girl, so the new 52 I felt was my chance to try the DC universe. I have all of the New Avengers, as well as the latest volume of Avengers so I am accustomed to super teams. As a newbie to the Justice League however, I feel pretty good about my purchase. Theres a pretty hefty amount of content (I'm looking at you 4 issue Wolverine and the X-Men) and the art itself really jumps off the page. The plot itself is pretty standard, but with some intrigue. If the plot was too 'out there,' I probably wouldve felt disinterested and confused simply because I am new to DC.
There are some features of super teams you must take into account when critiqueing, team-ups arent supposed to be complete stories of every single character. If they could provide every hero's background in a super team, why would they each have their own comic lines? so, don't expect some kind of amazing character development or analysis. Comics like Justice League and Avengers are plot and twist driven, meaning they will put you in a good understanding of the more general DC or Marvel universe but they cannot include you in on every background of every character.
I'll pretty much say that this comic was made for readers who are new to the DC world. I am not sure this is made for Comic vets though. I have a feeling I'll be happier when the TPB versions of the individual heroes come out. If you like epic super teams, this is totally perfect for you though.
