Welcome back to another Top 5 Friday! If you haven't seen the recent article on DC's July sales (click here if you want to), then you have seen the sales have been pretty bad, especially with the newer titles. This makes me sad, as there are actually some gems in that pile. That's why on this week's Top 5, I'm going to run down the DC You series that I think you should be supporting! This list will not include any series that are still running from the New 52, such as Batman and Superman, because those have a smaller chance of being cancelled. ENOUGH TALK! Let's begin!
5: Doctor Fate/Doomed
Why should you get this book when doesn't have any of the original Robins in it? Well, if you read Eric's reviews on the series, it has become a surprising title in the line up. For me, the reason of it being so interesting is the setting around it. This takes place after the Endgame event and it shows the repercussions of what the attack actually did. It left people missing, more frequent riots and caused someone to start pulling the strings to create protectors again. Yes, there is a new Batman, but the fact that it works by the rules of police greatly hinders him....... We don't need Robocop! Gotham has always been turned into a city of vigilantes so obviously, it needs vigilantes to protect it. That's where the Robins come in. Despite them being in over their heads, it's good to see that the outcome of Endgame didn't just bring sadness to Gotham's citizens, but also new heroes to help protect it, without needing the Bat. Sure I want to see these Robins team up with Batman, but even if that doesn't happen, it's no reason to not pick up this book.
3: Earth 2 Society
2: Omega Men
Honorable Mention: BIZARRO
1: Martian Manhunter
That's it for this week's Top 5 Friday! Now as DC explained, DC You is meant to be for a wider audience demographic, so these are based on what I find interesting. If you like Rock and Roll, try Black Canary. Like Political Satire? Try Prez. So faithful readers, what DC You series have you enjoyed so far? Leave a comment, see you next week and get to supporting!
