Review - More DC Rebirth Trade Paperbacks
Time to cue up another batch of DC Rebirth Trade Paperback reviews.

Enjoy.

BATMAN - I AM SUICIDE:  This collection answers the question "what if Batman decided to put together his own Suicide Squad?"  It's not as far fetched as it sounds.  The team, once assembled, must break into Santa Prisca to steal the Psycho Pirate from Bane.  Yeah, its a heist.  An epic heist.  It's a fun read with lots of interesting character interaction and a refreshing twist on the Batman/Bane dynamic.

SUPERMAN:  ACTION COMICS - WELCOME TO THE PLANET:  Another chapter in the ongoing rebuild of the Man of Steel.  DC is slowly reclaiming their signature character after years in the wilderness.  New characters mix with old characters mix with unexplained characters.  They're playing the long game with this one so sit back and enjoy the ride.

SUICIDE SQUAD - GOING SANE:  So what happens to your team after you lose a member to a weaponized Kryptonian?  If you're the Suicide Squad you head back to Belle Reve for your next mission.  The only problem?  The Black Vault drives everyone insane.  Everyone, that is, except Harley.  She reverts back to her old sane self just when being nuts would be most useful.  Solid character work on several of the characters as they get origin story treatments.

FLASH - SPEED OF DARKNESS:  Comprised of several single issues and a story arc involving the Shade, Speed of Darkness has a hard time finding its footing.  What probably worked well as a series of single issues doesn't form a cohesive whole as a trade.  Still watching Flash interaction with the Shade is a lot of fun.  For Flash Fans.

TRINITY - BETTER TOGETHER:  It's always fun to see DC's Big Three interacting.  With the new Rebirth iterations, there are still some dynamics to work out.  That's what Trinity is for.  The title is here just to put the big three together to face adversity.  The only problem with the first collected edition is that it reads like a knockoff of "For the Man Who Has Everything."  Not especially original, but worth a look.
