Birds of Prey

There's some villainy afoot at Penguin's Iceberg Lounge, and the Birds of Prey are formed in this catalyst of ice and bird names. Character interactions shine in this origin issue but the action is throwaway except for the juicy cliffhanger endi

Wonder Woman

"Wonder Woman" #0 is a delicious callback to the era of her true origin pre-New 52. Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang craft a delightful old school tale that drops all the clunkiness and lets readers know just where she's coming from.

Justice League

"Justice League" #0 doesn't have a single Justice Leaguer in it. However, Geoff Johns' origin of Shazam is intriguing enough and Gary Frank's art is superb.

Captain Atom

J.T. Krul, Freddie Williams II, and Jose Villarrubia wrap up their series with "Captain Atom" #0, which looks great but ultimately tells us nothing new about Captain Atom's origin.

Supergirl

"Supergirl" #0 is the sort of title that will appeal to those who like Michael Green, Mike Johnson, and Mahmud Asrar's "Supergirl" but doesn't give anything extra to the reader, either.

Sword of Sorcery

"Sword of Sorcery" #0 might have an inelegant title, but Christy Marx and Aaron Lopresti's revival of "Amethyst" is off to a good start, and Tony Bedard and Jesus Saiz's "Beowulf" is strong, too.

Ghost

For the first time in over a decade, Ghost returns to her own series written by Kelly Sue DeConnick and drawn by Phil Noto. While the pieces are all in place for a strong run, this debut issue falls flat with the focus off the titular character.

Nightwing

"Nightwing" #0 might have been more true to itself if it was titled "Robin" #0 or even "Grayson" #0. Dick Grayson's crime-fighting origin is here, but his decision to become Nightwing is not.
