Review: 52 #1


52 #1 - Ok, this series is off to a good start. Mostly an intro issue, as the six main characters are brought forward and we learn something about what drives them and what makes them tick - or not tick, as the case may be. Ralph Dibny’s story is so far the one that I am most interested in following; right off the bat, we are re-introduced to Elongated Man when he is at quite probably the worst moments of his life. He’s hit bottom, and there’s no where else to go. Black Adam looks interesting, as does The Question, but so far there hasn’t been enough shown of either character to get a feel as to where they are going. Booster Gold is lovable for some comic relief, but I fervently hope that isn’t all what he’s going to be used for. Steel and Renee Montoya, not finding them interesting at the moment, but hopefully that will change. The biggest thing that happens is a memorial service for the fallen superheroes. Overall, a good start, and very much looking forward to seeing how this weekly experiment unfolds. RATING: 4/5
