Comics Eye:DC New 52-Justice League

Updated on September 8, 2011

Welcome to the first week of DC Comics "New 52" series launch.

For those of you out there who are already on the band wagon for this re-dux, what do you think of what you've read so far?

Justice League #1 is brought to us by the talents of writer Geoff Johns and artist Jim Lee of the infamous high end and never completed series "Batman and Robin" (a series that I was very disappointed was never finished or picked up by Jim...the new series in my opinion was terrible and I only read an issue or two).

So first off, issue #1 was a whopping $3.99 and for that price I got 24 pages...very disappointing DC Comics. I could have done without the advertisements and the last two pages for that show all of the new DC 52 releases.

Anyway, since this is a total reboot of the DC line of comics, we are seeing heroes that really are unfamiliar with one another at the moment...so The Batman is meeting Green Lantern for the first time , and GL's initial impression upon seeing the Dark Knight for the first time is "Batman? You're Real!" and Batman's retort is "And your too damn bright."

And thus begins the opening salvo of this new series. The protagonist for this story arc (okay here comes the first spoiler...) is Darkseid, and I have to immediately wonder just how much this new DCU knows of this malevolent figure from the world Apokolips?

We are also introduced to a pre-cyborg Victor Stone, a star player (and I'm assuming that the team he plays for is based in Metropolis) and last and certainly not least....

at the end we are introduced to the new Superman, and he really does look good in the new suit and of course a bit younger. He reminds me of Mon-El, from the Legion of Superheroes, and the end caption is of course Batman vs. Superman.

So, DC is kicking off it's banner superhero title in style, but again for the price of admission I wish there were more pages and a card stock cover with an enhancement, because frankly this comic could and should have come in at the $2.99 price point.

Sorry, but I had no intention of paying a premium price for a variant cover.

Well, that's my two cents on this one. Please leave your questions and comments here, and I will answer them to the best of my ability...and I really do want to know what you thought of issue #1 if you've read it.
