I have not picked up a DC Comic title in over a year. Yeah, I wasn’t a fan of their decision to reboot their entire line with “The New 52“ while picking and choosing what to keep and change. Talk about a cluster $&#@. Certain characters, like Superman for example, were changed so much that I didn’t recognize the character that I have followed for the past twenty years. So why bother?
Then I see a cover like this. Two of my favorite characters, the Phantom Stranger and the Question, who have both been grossly underused in the past. Now taking center stage in the new “universe”. Back before the reboot, the Question in particular was killed and replaced with a sub-par supporting character. So, maybe not all of the changes have been so bad… Should I give “The New 52” a shot?
The Phantom Stranger #7
