DC Reboot… What’s Caught My Eye

DC Reboot… What’s Caught My Eye

Ok, it seems that there has been a lot of interest in what is to be coming out with the DC Reboot so I thought I’d put my thoughts into what stands out to me and that will be going on my list (and then cut back depending on the better half).

There are a lot of books coming out that we would expect. Justice League Dark seems to be a new version of Shadowpact but going on the Justice League name to get some more sales… Now I’m not complaining about that but lets hope it works and we’ll get more than we did with Shadowpact. With Peter Milligan writing it at least we know he will be writing John Constantine correctly as he’s been writing him for a while now over in Vertigo.

Aquaman does seem like an odd choice but it’s something I’m expecting Geoff Johns to take from a lower mid card comic and run with it like he did with Green Lantern. I really liked what they did with Aquaman with Brightest Day so I think it’s going to be a title to watch.

Animal Man is one that I loved with the Morrison run so lets see where it goes.

Bob over at Comic Book Page has been doing a great job linking everything up so if you want to see the full list that has been released so far over in their forums.

Have a look over there for the full list but here’s what has caught my eye!
