The New 52 Reviews: Justice League 1

Before The New 52 hit the stores I was excited for the event. Stories with a new start always seem more enticing. For me, The New 52 was a way for me to catch up on everything DC and do it in a new and exciting way. Lives starting over, new characters and the baddest of the bad creators. The potential is just endless. Just something you should know as you read the review. 

 

So for anyone worried whether Batman is still a badass... your safe. Without going into any spoilers, Batman feels familiar, familiar like you want to give him a fist bump when he takes down the baddy for the first time but knowing that he would just look at you like an idiot.  

 

There are two other notable appearances in this issue. The first, Green Lantern makes a rocking entry which is one of my favorite scenes in the while issue. If you could be Green Lantern and enter your first comic any way you wanted, how would you do it? Well Geoff Johns knows how he would enter. Bam! 

 

Green Lantern feels somewhat over the top but it seems authentic. He acts like he thinks he is a badass... and he is... and overconfident. Not to much change from the status quo here and it fits. As for the final appearance, I'll let you find out on your own. 

 

The story sets the sage for a different situation for the Justice League. They are not loved by the community, they are being chased by the authorities. There is not a lot of depth regarding why, but it sets the stage for an interesting first arch. 

 

Overall, I was excited to read this issue, so excited I read it twice.  I definitely don't want to miss any of the story details. Johns, Lee and Williams make a solid start with this book. Yes, I love Jim Lee's art here. I can confirm I will read issue 2.
