Crisis Aftermath: The Battle For Bludhaven #1
DC Comics
** 1/2 (out of five)

Everything DC has done around Infinite Crisis has been gold.
But nobody’s perfect.
The Battle For Bludhaven starts in the aftermath of the Chemo disaster (the Secret Society of Super-Villains dropped the giant chemical weapon in the unsuspecting city in Infinite Crisis). As they rush to help the victims, the Teen Titans get booted out of town by some group of U.S. government-backed heroes called Freedom’s Ring. Fast forward to one year later (like the rest of the DCU did last month) and we find Bludhaven a walled-off city cloaked in mystery, where more obscure heroes and villains, like the Nuclear Legion and the Atomic Knights roam.
I realize DC has had a lot of success by bringing back a bunch of minor characters from the past (Detective Chimp, Detective Chimp, Detective Chimp!), but this one might be a bit too much of a reach.
Still, it’s a must to pick up because you just never know what’s going to be key read in today’s DCU.
