Undervalued Spotlight #226

Wonder Woman #1, DC Comics, November 2011 I’ve always hoped that one day I’d get to do this post, this Undervalued Spotlight featuring a book from DC’s New 52 first wave. Back in September 2011 I posted a Market Trends…

Superheroes and Marriage

Firstly, and I believe that many out there would attest to this, just because you are married doesn’t mean your personal life is all sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows. In fact, one might even say that having characters going through marital troubles would make their personal lives even more difficult.

Animal Man #7

This series has been one of the more under-exposed series among the "New 52," which despite resoundingly positive reviews hasn't quite met the level of acclaim the top 10 on Diamond sales charts. The title puts Buddy Baker in darker situations than he's been before, dealing with the underbelly of his powers, while also juggling the strains of raising a family.

Flash Vol. 2, #164, DC Comics, September 2000 Did DC’s New 52 save the print comic book industry? Or did it just stave off the demise of the brick and mortar comic book stores by 3 or 4 years? Time…

Justice League #6

Justice League and its varying assortment of off-shoot titles has long been considered the flagship title of the DCU, often featuring the biggest heroes DC has to offer. Having been the lead-off title for the company's New 52 initiative, that distinction held true and has remained a top title on Diamond's sales charts since Sept. 2011. The first arc of the Geoff Johns penned series concluded last week with the world's greatest heroes having a final showdown with the dark god himself, Darkseid.

Green Lantern #3

Spiraling out of the events of The War of the Green Lanterns, the Green Lantern title found itself in uncharted territory with long-time GL antagonist Sinestro back in the green and black. Volume five of Green Lantern is now three issues into its run, all with the greatest Green Lantern (villain) at the helm of the title. The question is whether the title is still holding its weight as a story.

This week we're also taking a look at another of the new DC 52 number ones, this time the Emerald Archer himself, Green Arrow.
