The Art of the New 52 = Adding unnecessary lines on costumes that were better before.

Man, I swear "The New 52" is one of the best things that's happened to DC comics!

I've never been a huge Aquaman fan but just weekly scrolling through Comixology I saw some very interesting looking art featuring the character. I still have the first 1-3 superman comics I haven't gotten around to reading. Just say that Scott Snyder's take on the Batman series is truly phenomenal. Court of Owls was such a beautiful story and it would be THEE perfect way to adapt a new film for the Batman reboot. It would be a dead giveaway to have him be a writer of any Batman film upcoming within the DCCU.

DC's got the...

-Comics
-Video Games
-Cartoons (somewhat)
-Films (in the making)

All planned out. I'm very proud to see them doing well and getting back on track with not only Batman but other iconic Justice league heroes as well.

"Man, I swear "The New 52" is one of the best things that's happened to DC comics!"

I agree. The New 52 has been great. There's been some brilliant titles, like Earth 2, Justice League Dark & Animal Man, just to name a few.

I enjoy Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman from New 52, was really disappointed in things Superman though
MrBlackjack - 7/4/2014, 2:26 PM
Superman really got the shortens of the stick in the New 52. If you want the "real" Superman of the New 52, then read select issues of Action Comics and all of Justice League. Lobdell's Superman was terrible. The main "Superman" in general was terrible. I haven't picked up John's first issue yet, but Johns doesn't usually disappoint.
MrBlackjack - 7/4/2014, 2:28 PM
Some of the changes to the Robins (mainly Tim Drake) really annoy me too. The New 52 has it's ups and (terrible) downs, but overall I've been really enjoying it.
MrBlackjack - 7/4/2014, 2:32 PM
Oh, Superman Unchained is probably the best Superman title out there right now. That's a great title.
MrBlackjack - 7/4/2014, 2:40 PM
Like others have said, there are a lot of great titles out there. A lot of the hate for the New 52 is unwarranted; most don't read any of the titles and literally judge a book by its cover. Disappointing really.
InfiniteMonkey - 7/4/2014, 2:53 PM
Cyborg, all the way in the back.

Does he even have his own title?
davidcub - 7/4/2014, 2:53 PM
Unwarranted my ass! [frick] the "New 52" ....ugh I hate it....
Batmaniac - 7/4/2014, 2:54 PM
"A lot of the hate for the New 52 is unwarranted; most don't read any of the titles and literally judge a book by its cover."

Exactly MrBlackJack! As per usual...

davidcub - 7/4/2014, 2:58 PM
I'm kinda used to it...but I'll probably never really accept it as MY DC universe...guess that makes me sound old but I care not.
DCGuy - 7/4/2014, 3:03 PM
New 52 is BOSS!!
MrBlackjack - 7/4/2014, 3:16 PM
@InfiniteMonkey: Geoff Johns has been strongly hinting at a solo Cyborg series lately.
MrBlackjack - 7/4/2014, 3:17 PM
I hate what they did to Harley too.
MrBlackjack - 7/4/2014, 3:19 PM
I know I keep raging on the New 52, but I do actually really enjoy it. The little stuff that I don't enjoy, I really don't like it.
MrBlackjack - 7/4/2014, 3:24 PM

I think people sleep on All Star Western. Really good and interesting stories. Jeff lemires Green Arrow is the best The New 52 has right now.

Aquaman, Justice League Dark, Justice League are good ones too.

What makes me mad is that they cancelled some of the better ones. Like Firestorm, Frankenstein, I, Vampire(yes, its really good).

My opinion of course.
SnapperCarr - 7/4/2014, 3:36 PM
Not all the New 52 stuff is bad. I like what they've done with Aquaman and I LOVE Manapaul's work on the Flash.

Characters like Superman, Teen Titans, etc. have suffered because DC didn't fully plan the reboot.
Skybreaker - 7/4/2014, 4:05 PM
Justice League was ok. Simple action... BUT Throne of Atlantis is really really really cool. Black Manta, who I took for pansy because of that campy Super Friends cartoon, is a total boss in the comics!

Batmaniac - 7/4/2014, 4:10 PM
Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Justice League Dark have been great, and Animal Man was incredible, but the innovative Earth 2 is the best title in The New 52 so far! The series is absolutely phenomenal, in my opinion.

MrBlackjack - 7/4/2014, 4:15 PM
I haven't really enjoyed Earth 2...
staypuffed - 7/4/2014, 4:17 PM
It [frick]ing pisses me off when people beg for "THE REAL DCU BACK!!!!"

Which "real" DCU are you referring to?

Do you mean the original, Golden Age universe? Pre-Crisis? Post-Crisis? Zero Hour? or the precious decade before the New 52 that people claim was perfect and never had any flaws and we should go back to it because we don't we to be progressive and try new things because the New 52 is shit.

Right?

I think the New 52 is great. Sure, there are some misses among the hits, but the latter far outweighs the former in my opinion. I'm going to keep supporting it and DC.
MrBlackjack - 7/4/2014, 4:34 PM
I'm still not fully sure where Superman: For Tomorrow Stands in the old continuity.
dio - 7/4/2014, 4:36 PM
Love these all access videos. Makes me wish there was a comic book themed tv channel..all videos movies shows and docs on Comics. Would be awesome.
Brainiac13 - 7/4/2014, 4:37 PM
DC has taken over Marvel with storytelling and art......really loving the New 52.
Brainiac13 - 7/4/2014, 4:38 PM
I'm still not fully sure where Superman: For Tomorrow Stands in the old continuity.

This got me confused as well.....as there no story leading up to or follows.

Klone - 7/4/2014, 4:41 PM
New 52 has done some good but it had also [frick]ed up in many areas. Also, I was going over some of the Wonder Woman/Superman stuff... I think I like Tony Daniel's stuff more than Jim Lee's.
Klone - 7/4/2014, 4:42 PM
@BatManiac

How so? I never really paid Earth 2 much attention.
Batman52 - 7/4/2014, 4:51 PM
Since this is a DC article I feel it's appropriate to put this video right here:



Greatest fan made trailer I've seen so far.
sintzu - 7/4/2014, 4:54 PM
do any of you who say the new 52 is the worst thing to happen to dc even read any of it ? yes it did F*** up some charecters like superman but also fixed some like aquaman who is one of the best charecters in dc now which you couldn't say before the new 52

davidcub - 7/4/2014, 5:01 PM
When people want the old DC back, I think most of them are referring to the one just before the New 52. DERP.
MrBlackjack - 7/4/2014, 5:06 PM
@Brainiac13: The art is beautiful and there are some amazing moments in it, but once you get a little have way through it there are some "WTF just happened?" moments. I just regard it as an else worlds story.
batesmotel - 7/4/2014, 5:11 PM
@mbembet
I rather be a retard and read the new 52 then to be a faggot and read marvel now.
chris043 - 7/4/2014, 5:12 PM
I like a lot of the new 52 stuff but what they ve done to the Tim Drake and Dick Grayson stories is terrible.
mgeoff88 - 7/4/2014, 5:15 PM
@mbembet Just some friendly advice, you would have a lot less people attacking you, if you just said the New 52 is retarded, or that it is shit.

Saying that the New 52 is for retards though... You're saying that people that read the New 52 comics are retarded, which is why people respond so negatively to comments like that. No one likes to be disrespected.

I talked to you a couple of times before, and you actually seem like a pretty nice person. You can do whatever you want, but I'm just saying, think about how you come across when you say things like that.
staypuffed - 7/4/2014, 5:20 PM
Nice try, @mgeoff88, but our good pal mbembet leaves that comment on nearly all New 52 articles, and probably won't stop any time soon.
