Short Review: Artemis Requiem #1

According to the letter column Artemis was popular enough that they decided to do a mini series. I'm guessing this series wasn't loved because I don't recall her getting any starring roles afterward. 

OLDER SPOILERS AHEAD

Artemis' First Arc

I figured the best place to start with Artemis of Bana-Mighall was her introduction arc. I won't be getting into the entire plot just the parts focused on her and the main plot. From Wonder Woman #90, #0, 91-93

Anyone else worried about going into Rebirth?

There are a lot of good things to get excited about. Oracle is officially back in canon (granted part of the past), we have the old Superman back with his wife and son. The Titans are more than Tims' team. But there's one series I'm worried about going into the Rebirth. I don't want a good friendship to break up just to explain why one is on a team and the other is going undercover as a villain. Maybe it won't be so bad but it's good to be prepared.

There are other stories I'm concerned about like where Booster is, where Guy Gardner is and what's going to be done with some characters I love with writers I'm not fond of. But those are concerns for when Rebirth starts. It's weird to think that at the end of the month we'll get the first glimpse of things to come. I'll be trying out some of the titles although I won't officially be reading any new ongoings until July/August.

I'm also preparing for one book why reading up on Artemis to see how she'll differ or click with her pre-Flashpoint self. Reading past comments online I've seen a little criticism that she's rarely shown much besides her warrior side. Plus her origins should be intriguing as the Bana differ from the main Amazons and who knows if Rucka will change things from the present Amazon lore.

No Big Event DC Free Comic?

I remembered there being a mystery book that DC was planning on releasing for FCBD but when I looked up the comics on the offical website I didn't see one. Maybe it was going to be a lead into Rebirth before DC decided to do the DC Universe Rebirth issue?

The Importance of the Origin Story

Unless it's a beloved or interesting origin I tend to get bored but the origin story is important. It not only informs us of where the character came from it tells us who they are.

Red Hood and the Outlaws art

Looks like part of Jason's origin is canon again. I'm not too thrilled on how much older he looks in the art though. Still this was always something I loved about his origin. Taking it away removed some of his gutsy nature.
