I suppose I should once again wait until I've read all of mine...
Pull List; seems to be too long to fit in my sig...
I'm actually going to give the nod to Deathstroke, not because its the best book of the week, but because I think every now and then its important to bring up a book that is turning around for the better especially given whats come before so that readers that are curious about a new writer on the book, can know that they can take the chance on good word of mouth. Justin Jordan in 2 issues, has made me care about Slade and showed me not only a badass character, we already know that, but a very smart one at that and even though he was rather one-dimensional, I liked Koschei and hope to see him again in the future in some way. If you've been curious about the Deathstroke solo out of curiosity or because your reading Team 7, be sure to pick up issues 15-16. Its a good action series!
Demon Knights (excellent jumping on issue and I liked all of the characters and the mysteries sprinkled in for future issues to explore, plus the threat of Cain)
Frankenstein (gonna miss this, a great one shot story that was more a celebration of the series than following any previous storyline, plus I loved Frank's downed expression as if he too felt the pain that his series is cancelled)
Batman (I've known Capullo is amazing for years and once again does an incredible job here with a number of highlights on the art front and on the story front, I thought it was very good stuff with the Joker and the use of the rogue gallery, can't wait until the conclusion)
Team 7 (good finale for the first arc, Grifter had a great standout moment and I thought the art has looked the best its been even though I wish on both this and Deathstroke, their were stronger and more distinct artists on it, but I think this is more DC wanting a certain look for books like these than anything else)
A strong week overall for me!
Best to worst:
Demon Knights - very strong from front to back, best overall book of the week
Threshold - great introduction, amazing world-building for The Hunted; Larfleeze was bad
Batman - superior art, awful scripting & Joker characterization / dialogue
Team 7 - underwhelming and disappointing on all fronts, but not really bad or anything
Holy, Watermelon J-ello filled Twinkie trucks Batman! Am I really the only person that voted for B&R?
There ain't no teens watching Teen Titans Go.
I voted for Demon Knights. As someone who only read the first two issues of Cornell's run, I found Venditti's first issue to be a great jumping on point. The writing was solid, the characters felt distinct, and I didn't feel completely out of the loop while reading it. All in all, I enjoyed it and I'll definitely be back next month.
Threshold was less impressive. I really wanted to like this issue because I've been looking for more science fiction books to add to my pull list, and maybe it's just the premise of the story, but I got bored halfway through the issue. I believe I already pre-ordered #2, so we'll see how next month goes, but I don't think I'll be sticking with this series.
Batman was...I don't know. I liked some of what the Joker did in this issue, but I really haven't gotten onboard with this whole king/jester/royal court thing that Joker's doing. I also still don't like the faceless Joker concept. This just doesn't feel like the Joker to me.
I haven't read Superboy yet, but I'm betting it's going to be mediocre.
