Static Shock #1
DC should actually be proud of itself with what they are achieving. In the first week there were quite a few books that seemed to garner praise and quite a bit of interest. This, unfortunately, is not one of them for me.
The character has little appeal to me, though the art was perfect for the style of book that I think it is trying to be. Unfortunately the biggest problem with Static Shock is that it doesn't actually know what it wants to be. It seems to bounce from being friendly to younger generations with it's simplicity to a darker tone that I found jarring.
If you are a fan of Static Shock, check it out. If you're not, well, don't try starting here.
My Score: 4.5
"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Good-bye.."
