Episode 064: Rotten Comic Books

By CBI

This week, Vince and I tackle a couple other new DC 52 titles; Animal Man and Swamp Thing, which share some story elements. Vince quite likes both, though I simply could not bring myself to care that much for either title.

What I did love however, was Avenging Spider-Man #3! Insanely awesome.

    I think the point of the defenders is that this isn’t that bad a comic, it’s aarvege, maybe slightly below aarvege and is being singled out because of its high profile. There were truly excellent super-hero comics in the DC relaunch (Batwoman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Swamp Thing, Animal Man, Action Comics) and some which are much worse than JL#1 (Legion Lost, Legion of Super-heroes, Deathstroke, Mr. Terrific). JL #1 is bang in the middle tier of quality (in my opinion), it just feel slightly spiteful to single it out for harsh criticism when there are considerably worse super hero comics out there in any of the big two.
