  • DC The New 52: What the Convention Scene Staff is Buying

    DC New 52

    With all the hoopla about DC’s New 52 launching today with the release of Justice League #1, I thought it might be interesting to see what the staff of Convention Scene plan to pick up. Well, the answers range from all to none.

    Richard says, “I’m intrigued of the major changes enough that I’ll probably read each of the first issues and whittle it down from there.”

    Joe, in his ever blunt way, says, “Not at all;¬†looks like crap.”

    Colin says, “I wasn’t reading DC¬†before (aside from Vertigo) and these changes don’t encourage me to jump on.”

    As for myself, I’m a long-time DC reader, having started reading comics in the 1970s after watching the Super Friends cartoon. For me this is exciting and depressing at the same time. Change is always exciting, but at the same time, I’m not sure if I will left out. When Superman was changed for Man of Steel, I stopped reading Superman. When they changed Jason Todd’s origin in Batman (along with other changes), I stopped reading Batman. Will I still feel a connection to the new DC Universe? We’ll see. While I toyed with buying all 52 new issues, I knew some of them I wouldn’t buy after the first issue so I decided to pare it down to what I might actually buy, with the jury still out on a few of these. Here goes:

    Action Comics
    Superman
    Batgirl
    Nightwing
    Birds of Prey
    Green Lantern
    Green Lantern Corps
    Green Lantern: New Guardians
    Justice League
    Justice League International
    Aquaman
    Wonder Woman
    The Flash
    The Fury of Firestorm
    Mister Terrific
    Justice League Dark
    Demon Knights
    Stormwatch
    Suicide Squad
    Teen Titans
    Static Shock
    Blue Beetle
    Legion of Super-Heroes
    Legion Lost

    So that’s it for us. What do you plan on picking up?
