I added a vote for Superboy. This was pleasant surprise. I thought no way this would be good. It is Lobdell after all. Yet, this was very interesting. Superboy is still a clone of Superman and maybe Lex, but it's only hinted at. Right now, he's an imprisoned alien, being experimented on and trying to find a way out. Project: N.O.W.H.E.R.E. (I need to see what this stands for) thinks he will be a weapon against some of the other heroes, such as the Teen Titans. But Superboy is playing his own game to get free and stop his captors. Also, he get a bit of help from Gen13's own Caitlin Fairchild! They also have a new take on his powers that very cool. I'm actually going to buy #2.

Lobdell often gets more ire than he truly deserves, I think. Not that he's usually a great writer, and he's written his share of rubbish, but Generation X was a really good series under Lobdell. So, it's not as if he can't write.

I haven't read anything by him in years though.

Batman and Robin #1 (again): it looks like this will continue to be the strongest Batman title, even more proof that the relaunch was meaningless. Liked the script and the art very much. It was a brief pleasure: if next issue is another big-panel quick read in the style of Ex Machina, it'll be my last issue.

The new take on Green Lantern with Sinestro as the GL of sector 2814 is rather refreshing. Also, Hal comes off like a jack-ass, as he has recently. It's funny to see that Sinestro has Hal Jordan by the balls, and it mayb just help Hal in the long run. Through it all there a small of thread of hope for redemption for both Hal & Sinestro. I'm rooting for Sinestro.

All shown by some fantastic art by Mahnke

Yeah, I'm really liking the new Green Lantern status quo.

I liked Resurrection Man #2.

Although the Body Doubles were always drawn so, they look a little bit porny a la "Voodoo" in a couple of pages, but the more humorous aspect of their identity is mostly there.

Hope the alzheimer super villain returns too.

 

 

Frankenstein: Agent of A.D.E. :-)

This is great. Doom Patrol (Morrison) meets Swamp Thing (Moore) and BPRD.

Spectacular art, especially on Mazursky's flashback.

Top book.

Yes, right now at the end of month two, I'd have to give Frankenstein my nod for best book of the New 52.

Animal Man is still very good, and Action Comics seems to get better by the issue. So, those are my top three now.
