I've always been a fan of GA, & I am happy to say that Rebirth GA is another model closer to the real one. While this book isn't yet to the level of King's Batman or Tomasi's Superman, the quality is steadily improving as it goes along. Certainly worth checking into if you are a fan of the character.
If you have been missing Superman, you know, the guy who was a hero and a genuinely nice guy -- here's the book for you! He's back! Thanks to the magic of complicated comic continuity (which you don't even need to really keep up with) Superman is now a loving husband and father. It is so great.
I'm ready to read more please.
Like so much of the Rebirth series, this first volume is about cleaning up and getting ready for future stories. The good news is that they seem to be moving in the right direction. John's back in the UK, and he's a real jerk. Things are looking up.
Well written, but it should absolutely be read only after the first volume. I didn't do so, and I paid the price.
This is the start of a new series of Gaslight fantasies. I found it to be the rare case where the author's skill invoked certain present day realities that added to the urgency and ultimate anxiety of the narrative. Recommended with reservations.
Honesty I couldn't get past the partial reboot continuity problems with Barbara and her friends. I feel like the comic book guy.
If you've been enjoying Burnside-era Batgirl, give this a look. You may really like it.
A real missed opportunity. This could have been a fun, crazy monster story, but it just never seems to find the proper rhythm.
This is a remarkably poignant story told from the perspective of a survival of a brutal US Military massacre. And who just happens to be a worshiper of the Old Ones. This is perhaps the best of the recent Lovecraftian works.
My least favorite of the Rebirth books so far. This really has the sturm und drang of the nu52. Not for me.
Well done,but ultimately unable to get over problems at the core of the character. YMMV.
This easily makes up for the failed promises of the other Hanna Barbera adaptations. Brilliant social satire. It's a Stone Age Family for today and it works!
It just doesn't stand out against the glut of Noir tinged UF released in the last 10 years or so. YMMV.
A continuity heavy deep dive into the politics of Hell. Your enjoyment may depend on your knowledge of backstory.
This is a fun Bronze age style story that is really all about moving pieces around for future stories. Fun but it won't change your life.
