Review - Even More DC Rebirth Trade Paperbacks
Rebirth continues to roll.  DC seems to be back in good creative form.  Let's take a look at some of the recent releases, shall we?

GREEN ARROW:  EMERALD OUTLAW - When we last saw Oliver Queen he'd lost his fortune and his family, but reconnected with the Black Canary.  If you have a thing for fishnets, that's almost a wash.  What tilts things into the negative is the appearance of a renegade archer killing folks in Seattle.  Rebirth has been especially kind to Green Arrow.  The creative team has taken all of the great parts of the character's mythology and updated them while jettisoning the accumulated debris of the New 52.  Recommended.

THE FLASH:  ROGUES RELOADED -  When you have one of the greatest Rogues' Galleries in comics and they just don't show up, people, especially fanboys notice.  So, it was with great glee that I dove into this one.  The Rogues have been laying low, but with a purpose.  That purpose?  Stop the Flash of course.  It's a fun read with a cleverly crafted plot.  A quality read for Flash fans new and old.

JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA -  DC has a history of spinning off Justice League teams, often led by Batman, featuring B-list heroes.  Despite carrying the title of the original team, the Rebirth JLA features such unlikely members as the Ray, Killer Frost and LOBO(?).  Their first mission?  Stop 90s JLU baddies the Extremists.  Its an interesting read as the team searches for chemistry and a way to stop the bad guys.  I'm interested to see where this goes.  With a title like this that's the best you can hope for.

BATMAN:  I AM BANE - So, in the last volume of Batman, the Dark Knight broke into Santa Prisca.  This time Bane returns the favor and comes to Gotham to get revenge on the Bat and the Cat.  Every member of the Batman Family is potential collateral damage as these two forces of nature face off.  It's a taut read full of action and intrigue.

SUICIDE SQUAD:  BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE - Now that the Suicide Squad has gone mainstream, there is very little chance we're going to see any of the team's core members actually staying dead.  That doesn't mean they can't, occasionally, act like the villains they are.  That is the most interesting part of this outing.  With the team in disarray (when aren't they), one of them steps up to do some evil.  It's a much needed reminder of why they are there in the first place.  Rebirth continues to deliver quality Suicide Squad.
