FBBP #137 – New Year, Same Old New 52

Welcome to 2012! Back in the dying days of 2011, we sat down and looked at some of DC’s “New 52” titles a few issues in. Titles discussed include:

  • Action Comics by Grant Morrison, Rags Morales and others
  • Batman & Robin by Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason
  • Batman by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo
  • Batwoman by JH Williams III and Haden Blackman
  • Wonder Woman by Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang

We also talked about the overall “success” of The New 52, how we as readers should judge the success, how much digital comics should cost, and how Apple should really sell Chris an iPad for ten dollars. Seriously. It would be great PR.

What New 52 books are we sleeping on? What books are we insane to enjoy? Why aren’t we reading something not published by DC? All good questions, and it’s up to you, the FBBArmy, to tell us!

Detective Comics #854 coverWe just can’t stop talking about Batman! This week we convene to discuss all the non-Morrison “Batman Reborn” titles, particularly Detective Comics #854, the long-awaited start of Greg Rucka and JH Williams III‘s Batwoman story. Along the way we discuss all the other books released thus far — Batman, Batman & Robin, Red Robin, Gotham City Sirens and Streets of Gotham Spoiler alert: As many as half of these books may be worth your time!

Check back later this week for the second half of our recording session, where we discuss LONGBOX, something we are told will change something for an indefinite period of time!
