Ranking DC’s Rebirth: 25 – 21

25
Justice League

Bryan Hitch, Tony Daniel, & Fernando Pasarin
This is the worst thing I’ve read in a long time. Hitch’s writing and art are super basic. The characters talk like their Silver Age counterparts, announcing their feelings and intentions, making them seem extremely flat. Some of these characters have had the chance to show some depth in their own titles, but in Justice League, they act cartoony, and I don’t mean in a good DCAU way. The story seems to move through expository dialogue instead of being motivated by character’s actions, which wouldn’t be all bad if Hitch could muster up some art that matches what he did in the Ultimates, or Ultimate Fantastic Four. I think taking on both duties is stretching the poor guy thin, which doesn’t give me a lot of hope for this book. – tyrannoflores

Works as a starting point for new readers, but that’s the only good thing it does. Lazy storytelling and even the art seems rushed in parts. The techno-organic space beasty is likely another Watchmen connection, so… enough to keep reading? – MMDG

Deathstroke

Christopher Priest, Carlo Pagulayan, Igor Vitorino, & Felipe Watanabe
Well drawn but that’s all I can give it. Slade is a piece of shit and I’d rather watch him die. They aren’t even straddling the line and I don’t feel too compelled to read more about this guy. This book has badass overload; I don’t need to spend every page seeing Slade fuck, kill, or spit one-liners. Masochism without any sort of examination seems really pointless in this day and age. Won’t be reading more. – MeanOldPig
