52 Week 1

By Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka, Keith Giffen (Illustrator), Ruy Jose (Illustrator), Joe Bennett (Illustrator)

52 was a weekly run set after the Infinite Crisis mini-series, it chronicles the events that happened during the year that Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman disappeared.
If you want to check out my reviews of the other issues in this series click here.

The DCU spent a year without Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman–a year in which the fate of the world hung in the balance! Now Grant Morrison, Geoff Johns, Greg Rucka and Mark Waid deliver the thrilling tale of the heroes who protected the planet in their absence in this best-selling series.

Summary from Goodreads.

If you have not read, or even heard of the Infinite Crisis storyline, do not worry as I had not heard of it and this was a standalone story. Whilst I am sure that if you have read the Infinite Crisis storyline, things will flow on perfectly in this but it in no way affect my reading of this issue.

The storyline sets the scene for what the rest of the year is going to be like, so it does jump around a tad which some people may not like but it necessary to cover what is happening around the world. We have 2 main characters that we follow, Booster Gold and Ralph. They are the complete opposites of each other,

The art style is very bright and colourful for Booster Gold, which reflects his personality and happy-go-lucky attitude. Ralph’s panels are the complete opposite, a very limited colour palette with dark colours which also reflect what he is going through. This may annoy some people, but since both of these characters are on the opposite each others colouring would never have worked.

This first issue sets up perfectly what should be an interesting 51 issues to follow.

      Yeah! I was struggling to enjoy reading so I took some off and after getting some comic books recently decided to give it another shot! Good to be back reading and reviewing again though
