52apolooza: DC Universe Presents - New Reader Review: Kelly Symmonds

New Reader Reviewer: Kelly Symmonds 

Writing- DCuP was an interesting beast to say the least. I have been reading comics for about a year and a half now and I still don't know what my thoughts are on Deadman. I liked him in Brightest Day for the most part, but disliked him in Deadman and the Flying Graysons. With DC Universe Presents, the jury is still out. He is actually dead again, but is still complaining about living. Hrmmm, I will have to get #2 to finalize my thoughts on Deadman. 15/25.

Art- Chang puts in a solid effort on DCuP #1. It didn't rank very high on my list of good looking pencil works. It did fare better than Birds of Prey, which resembled a stale piece of bread. So this issue is getting a few points for distancing itself from Black Canary and her crew. 14/25.

Accessibility- An easy enough read, nothing too outside the box for any new reader to start out with. This would not be my first response if anyone asked me what comics they should start with, but hey, you can't win 'em all. 16/25.

Enjoyability- Even with the opinion of Deadman himself still in limbo, I felt that forcing him to live out others' lives to better understand his own faults was an interesting premise. It was handled well enough and left on a rather good cliffhanger. 17/25.

Overall: 62/100

About the Author - Christian

Christian is the exasperated Abbott to the Outhouse's Costello. When he's not yelling at the Newsroom for upsetting readers or complaining to his wife about why the Internet is stupid, he sits in his dingy business office trying to find new ways to make the site earn money. Christian is also the only person in history stupid enough to moderate two comic book forums at once.
