Alright, so now begins the "0" issues of DCs New 52 and I got two of them along with one Marvel book. Light week but I'll take it. Defenders 10 - This was a fun issue but about on par with the rest of the series. If this title were still ongoing I'd have dropped it but it's ending with issue 12 so I might as well finish it. I'm mostly... well... entirely... only interested in the Iron Fist/John Aman storyline and I'm glad to see that come back at the end of this issue. We're shown that apparently while the Defenders were lost in time or whatever they were the real 616 was all killed off save Scott Lang by a Celestrial. This will obviously be undone (undoing Black Panther's death as well I'm assuming... and the Living Weapons?!) but I'm curious how it all plays out. Green Lantern 0 - This is the introduction of the new Green Lantern, Baz, who gets Hal's ring after his "death." Not much to it really Baz is an Middle Eastern-American who's faced tons of racism post 9/11. Now he's caught doing something wrong but it looks like he's been set up to look like he's doing more than he was and he's being profiled... then the ring shows up and busts him out of jail. Eh, good enough beginning. We'll see what happens. Phantom Stranger 0 - I was drawn to this title because of the hints that the Stranger is actually the same Judas who betrayed Jesus. This issue furthers those hints to make it all but concrete. I find that very interesting. One thing that I did like, but also didn't like, was the creation of the Spectre. I love the Spectre as God's angel of vengeance but now it's looking like he's just the spirit of Jim Corrigan. I mean, I'll see how that plays out but it's a bit wierd to me. And I didn't necessarilly like how it played out. It was too simple or something. All in all though it was a decent issue and I'll give the next few a try. We'll see how the story goes. Best and Worst of the Week Best: Defenders 10 - Totally wierd! I've barely liked an issue of this series and this one gets the best of the week... and it wasn't really even that great. I think the week was just very bleh for me and this was the least bleh. Worst: Green Lantern 0 - Nothing really wrong with this issue... it was just there. I'm not a big fan of "origin stories" and we all know the GL origin. Baz's story didn't feel very amazing or anything... I was just sorta bored. Not bad... but not good either.
