Let’s start with Doomsday.1, here is a book I was seriously excited about #2 for. I went in blind, read the blurb on the net before picking up #1 and was seriously pleasantly surprised. Issue #1 sets up the story… the thrilling tale of seven adventurous astronauts, who watch in horror, aloft in the International Space Station, as most of Earth is annihilated by a titanic solar flare.
Gail Simone has been consistently knocking it out of the park with her writing, even overcoming being controversially sacked from Batgirl only to be reinstated 2 issues later! The second installment of her standalone title The Movement is a fast moving and well worked comic book. The first issue was an almost text book example of how to launch a new comic, there was no slow steady build up with too much time spent talking for page upon page.
