Today's batch of DCNu releases was comprised of a bunch of titles centering on DC's teen heroes. Here's the scoop.
-Legion Lost Time lost, that is! Because this worked so well in Countdown, a squad of Legionnaires will be lost in our present time. Fabian Nicieza writing (who I realize - I don't think I've read his work in a decade, so no opinion) and Pete Woods, who I like, on art. The lineup looks cool, though. I... will probably pick this up and see how I like it.
-Legion of Superheroes - I'd lie if I said I thought THIS was the change that would get me to quit reading Legion. Right now I think a court injunction will be what stops me buying Legion no matter what's going on in the main Legion book. Its a sickness. I actually really like Paul Levitz's writing, so there.
-Teen Titans - REBOOT!
|ha ha ha... Okay, roll out the REAL costumes now.|
I don't know who half of these characters are (but if that's the new Miss Martian on the bottom corner, that's hilarious). And for some reason Robin's new outfit is getting a lot of flack, but... man, that's nothing compared to the look on Superboy. That is awful. I thought the jeans were kind of silly. Anyway, I'll say I never thought the Red Robin costume looked good anywhere but in Ross's paints in Kingdom Come, and I find the 90's-pouch stuff on Red Robin far sillier than the cape.*
I have no thoughts on the creative team. I dunno.
Static Shock #1 - You're taking him out of Dakota? Why? Anyway, this is a likely title I'll sample.
Hawk and Dove - Oh, man, DC. Its like telling me I get to eat a delicious turkey sandwich, but there's going to be someone smoking cloves at the table. I like writer Sterling Gates' work on Supergirl, but I have a hard time with Rob Liefield's work. I know he's got supporters and detractors, but I don't see me picking this up.
*seriously. We're harping on this when nobody will redesign Hawk's should doo-hickeys? I think this is one of those cases of "if we hadn't grown up looking at Batman's ears and cape, we might think it looked kind of dumb, too".
