This past September, DC Comics restarted its own history by cancelling numerous titles and relaunching them under the branding of “The New 52”. The massive event follows the epic “Flashpoint” series and becomes the perfect jumping on point for new fans of the medium and these classic characters. Many of them continued along as if nothing happened while many others received new costumes, origins and supporting characters. The entire batch of #1 issues have been collected into a massive hardcover “Omnibus” that spans some 1260 pages and gives you the whole new beginning scoop in one bookshelf worthy collectible. Having reviewed 85% of these titles for the official blog, I am pasting those overview thoughts in the review for this book as the full on content will be the same.

After the relaunch many legacy fans were up in arms about some of the changes that had been made and only time will tell how much of this new continuity remains in place. It’s a comic book universe and that means that the options are on the unlimited side. Let’s face it, a number of the circumstances that came to pass after “Crisis On Infinite Earths” have changed so why should this be any different after a time. The downside of this particular edition is that it will run you a little bit of money (about $100 at the time of this writing and as it becomes collectible this can likely increase).
