new52vsolddcu2-1317064544

Welcome back to the third week of our New 52 continuity report, where we take a look at what has and hasn't changed in the relaunch DC Universe! This week we take a look at the reboots of Supergirl and Blue Beetle, confusion around Starfire and the old New Teen Titans, the continuing lack of change in the Batman, Legion and Green Lantern books, and the mystery of what happened to the Birds of Prey.

The Big Sexy Problem with Superheroines and Their ‘Liberated Sexuality’

screen-shot-2011-09-22-at-1.51.48-pm

Yesterday, two new comic books from the "New 52" relaunch of DC Comics provoked some online controversy: Catwoman and Red Hood and the Outlaws. They were controversial in particular because of the way they depicted women, notably with the aggressively fanfictiony on-panel sex between Batman and Catwoman, and Starfire's transformation into a promiscuous tabula rasa who can't even remember the names of the men she sleeps with, and seeks out emotionless sex with both of the two male main characters while they essentially high five about it.

‘Batman’ #1: The Best New Comic of the New 52 (So Far)

batman01

One of the things about doing an all-new first issue of Batman is that you don't really have to spend a whole lot of time explaining who he is. He's a character that's been on TV pretty much every week since 1992, starred in a movie that made over a billion dollars -- that's billion, with a B -- at the box office, and was the basis of a video game that holds a Guinness World Record for being the most critically acclaimed game of all time. Chances are, if you have any pop cultur

Parting Shot: DC’s New Starfire, WTF

red-hood-1316645040

There's a difference between writing a female character as sexually liberated, and writing her as wish-fulfillment sex object, but Starfire sure is making a case for the latter in this charmless scene from today's Red Hood and the Outlaws #1 by Scott Lobdell and Kenneth Rocafort. As before, the staff has

Parting Shot: Green Lantern Corps #1 Kicks Off with Unfortunately Named ‘Triumph of the Will’

green-lantern-corps-triumph-will

The preview of Green Lantern Corps #1 hit CBR today, and while I'm guessing this is another one of those unintentional missteps, all I'm going to say is that giving the first arc of your superhero comic the same name as one of the most famous pieces of Nazi propaganda is a pretty bold move, and unless you know exactly what you're doing and how to

Some people may not have enjoyed Justice League #1, but you know who did? A 7-year-old girl named Lola, who reviewed the issue in a priceless video on Youtube. I can't tell you how awesome it is to see a kid (especially a lady kid) enjoying superhero comics. HOPE FOR THE FUTURE EVERYBODY

10 Good Things About the DC Relaunch (So Far)

10thingsilikeaboutdcnu

With the recent reviews I've written of Justice League, Batgirl and Suicide Squad, some of our readers might have gotten the impression that I'm a crabby misanthrope who's dead set against the DC Reboot. Despite appearances, that's simply not true -- or at least, the second half of it isn't. As much as there are books spinning out of the relaunch that I haven't enjoyed, there's a lot of good stuff going on too. That's why today, ComicsAlliance Editor-in-Chief / Wise Earth Mother Laura Hudson has challenged me to balance things out a little by offering up Ten Good Things About the DC Reboot (So Far)!
