Release Date: 08/10/2016
After the events of Flashpoint in 2011, DC Comics rebooted their superhero universe, much to the chagrin DC readers, and released the New 52. No one can question its success and the onslaught of new #1's on the shelves sold like gangbusters. However, don't confuse high sales for satisfying reception from fans, as the majority of fans seemed to dislike or even hate the New 52. The change-up of continuity, character reinterpretations, and disappearance of fan-favorites, i.e. Wally West, had some people fueled with rage. From Scott Lobdell's Red Hood and the Outlaws, with its over sexualized portrayal of Starfire, to Cameron Stewart's hipster Barbra Gordon.
