Thoughts on the “New 52″

For those of you who don’t follow comic books, you may or may not know that DC Comics (which is responsible for characters like Superman, Batman, etc) did a reboot of all their comics, starting everything over at #1. I don’t follow these things too closely, normally. I’ve gotten a little burnt out by their unending series of crossover events. But there was a lot of energy around this so I asked my local comic shop guy to hook me up with the new line of #1s so I could see what it was all about. I figured, at the very least, this would be a chance to read about some characters I don’t normally read about. Overall I’ve found it to be a bit incomprehensible.
