Weird Science DC Comics Comic Books of the Week 09/14/16


Another week, another bunch of books for the Weird Science Get Fresh Crew to review.  This week
was pretty strong overall, but don't take my word for it.  Just look at how many books made the Books of the Week while humming "What a Wonderful World."

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.


Wonder Woman #6
Score: 9.6/10

What Jim Said:

Another week and another amazing issue of Wonder Woman.  Greg Rucka continues his fairy tale-like (re)telling of Wonder Woman's origin and I loved every minute of it.  This issue has the bonus of connecting some major parts to the Lies story and it simply looked great.  Everyone should be reading Wonder Woman! Read Full Review


Detective Comics #940
Score: 8.5/10

What Jim Said:

This was a very good and emotional issue that lost some of it's impact with the sudden revelation at the end.  However, that same cliffhanger set this story (and the rest of the DCU) into a bigger picture mode that I can't wait to see more of.  Everyone interested in the overall Rebirth story should pick this up and read it immediatley as well as Tim Drake fans everywhere. Read Full Review



Green Lanterns #6
Score: 8.5/10

What Eric Said:

Since I've been pretty down on this series, I was shocked as hell at how much I enjoyed reading this issue.  We finally have some decent interactions between our two Lantern heroes and it brightens up the whole feel of the book........ not to mention the great colors and art that are throughout.  I really hope that this series can keep up this momentum because for the first time, Green Lanterns is a series I want to read. Read Full Review



New Super-Man #2
Score : 8.5/10

What Jody Said:

Once again, The New Super-Man continues to soar with the rest of the Rebirth titles. It has great humor, action, and continues to develop the character of Kenan extremely well. That being said, it also feels like Gene Luen Yang is holding down the fast forward button on the story, not giving us time to take it all in. If the pacing can be fixed as the series continues, along with reining in some of the sillier aspects, I think this series could be as good as any main Justice League book. Read Full Review



Teen Titans #24
Score: 8.0/10

What Reggie Said:

The gang reminisces on a fallen member, and it makes for some touching character moments. Yes, touching character moments! From Teen Titans! I know! I was pretty surprised myself. This series did finish strong with a few issues that showed the Teen Titans acting as a team, and not as a bunch of angry brats, so I shouldn't be so shocked. But they were angry brats almost every other time! When we said we wanted Teen Titans, we didn't mean for them to behave like actual teenagers! Read Full Review


The Flash #6
Score: 8.0/10

What Jim Said:

The wait is over and we do find out who Godspeed is.  My problem isn't with who it is or why they are doing what they are doing...no, my problem is that it all falls a bit flat and just feels like setup.  I really liked Carmine Di Giandomenico's art and have faith that Joshua Williamson will blow my mind eventually...I just wish it was now.Read Full Review



Gotham Academy: Second Semester #1
Score: 8.0/10

What Reggie Said:

Folks that read and enjoyed the first semester will find a lot of payoff in the second semester, though the story is a little different than the madcap antics we're used to. New characters are introduced, new information is learned, and kids skulk around in the passageways between walls, which is what this book is all about. The art is fabulous, and retains the "painted animated cel" style of the previous volume. All that, and Professor Macpherson's fresh cranberries! Read Full Review



Hal Jordan And The Green Lantern Corps #4
Score: 8.0/10

What Reggie Said:

After three issues of running in place, this book takes off like Shaggy and Scooby-Doo to find a Scooby Snack. Wait, that's a terrible analogy. What I mean to say is that this issue has more interactions between core characters, and I believe it makes all the difference. You get a good look at Sinestro's style of rule, and it's not very cool. If you weren't sold on the art to begin with, then get your eyes checked. I hope this good time Green Lantern Corps train can keep rollin'! Read Full Review


Red Hood and the Outlaws #2
Score: 8.0/10

What Jim Said:

While this issue may be the last bit of setup before the series really starts going, I still enjoyed it.  This book is just fun and if you can put your ideas that comics have to change the world behind you, I think you can enjoy it as much as me.   Read Full Review


Doom Patrol #1
Score: 8.0/10

What Reggie Said:

A pretty surreal comic that may be impenetrable to readers that are brand new to the team, Doom Patrol #1 is packed with stuff to dazzle your eye and fry your brain in the grand tradition of the series. Our new hero Casey Brinke is really intriguing and all of the new concepts introduced in this comic are highly strange. The art was perfect, like a psychedelic TinTin. Buy this book if you think your workaday life has gotten stale. Read Full Review


Well, that's it for this week.  Remember, just because a book isn't on this list, it doesn't mean we didn't review it.  We review every DC Comic that comes out each week as well as talk about them on our weekly podcast that comes out every single Sunday Night.  See you next week!
