DC | The New 52 | Week 2

Another week, another set of 13 brand new first issue comics from DC. Last week I picked seven recommendations, this week it’s the same.

So, my picks for those who don’t want to get the whole lot but want some great comics: you will not go wrong with Batwoman, Demon Knights, Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E., Grifter, Red Lanterns, Resurrection Man, and Superboy.

Batwoman continues to be the most visually stunning comic I’ve ever seen, but the two big surprises this week were Grifter and Red Lanterns. Grifter is a refugee from the ex-Wildstorm universe, and as I’d never read anything featuring him before, I had no clue what to expect. Red Lanterns, in theory, is a pretty limited concept (a group of primal, almost unthinking Lanterns fuelled by rage), but this comic is a heck of a lot of fun.

Next week has some real doozies. I can’t wait!
