With its “New 52” line of comics, DC Comics has promised everything old is new again with its super-hero properties, so I’m turning my critical eye to all 52 first issues this fall.
I plan to review each and every one of DC’s “New 52” releases in September here on Eye on Comics. With DC’s relaunch of its entire super-hero line, its comics and some creators are going to be unknown quantities to a number of readers, both new and old. I intend these reviews to be something of a guide for those with an interest in some or even all of the titles, not just in terms of content but also in quality.
Beginning with the Aug. 31 release of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee’s Justice League #1, the first of the “New 52,” I’ll begin writing and posting reviews of all of the first issues.
My New 52 reviews are being sponsored by award-winning comics shops Strange Adventures and Happy Harbor Comics and online retailer AllNewComics.com. Without my sponsors, this review project couldn’t have happened. My hope is that if my readers are interested in comics purchases — either of the New 52 comics I’ll be reviewing or of other comics — they’ll turn to these retailers as a means to support Eye on Comics and high-quality, direct-market comics retailers that serve as the foundation of the comics marketplace.
Each review will have links to the retailers’ websites, and Eye on Comics will also carry ads from all three during the course of the review project.
Update: The New 52 Review Project is underway. Click here to see the reviews posted thus far.
