The new 52. Origins stories of our DC superheroes. I am no comic fanatic but even I am aware of the origin stories of almost all of the DC superheros because this graphic novel is almost a waste of precious reading time. Really not trying to be harsh but I was expecting something new or different, what with all of the new origin shows being telecast on tv ..... So I expected something along that line.
Superman. Dic Grayson. Batman. Aquaman. Starfire. Green Lantern. Batwoman. Red Robin. Harley Quinn. Green Arrow. Damian Wayne. The big names of the DC universe. You would have expected solid stories but everyone of them had an almost summary style quality (aside from Superman's story). Also all the origin stories are pretty much what was established since the start. I am not familiar with Starfire so that one for me was new but everything else was the same. I am still wondering though where is Wonder Woman ...... but yes the art I liked ...... I liked very much.
"For all the newbie comic readers out there"
