Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Paul Jenkins has gotten a bad rap for obvious (and deserving) reasons. But with this being the ‘Brave and the Bold’ of the nuDCU I’m excited to read it. A short arc on Deadman and the possibilities are endless onwards.

  2. Should be a good showcase of C-D list characters. I’m sure I will be on and off this book frequently.

  3. I heard his interview on Word balloon and I loved the concept.

  4. This book will be worth checking out for the art alone!

  5. Since I am already pre-ordered through issue 3, I hope this is good! I like the idea for the series overall, too.

  6. I love books that help expand a universe. Loved some of the random characters in B&B. Hope this is exactly like that!

  7. Love the idea of highlighting lesser known characters in short runs on this book. I also love that they chose to start with Deadman. He was my favorite part of Brightest Day and I can’t wait to read more of him. I’m considering finding and picking up Denny O’Neil and Neal Adams’ run on Deadman as well.

    • I really liked this. Gave a great start to the Deadman story. The art was really pretty too. I’m definitely staying on for this arc at the very least.

  8. Love the concept of this book. Not thrilled about Jenkins. It may be a game time decision when it shouldn’t be. I was sold on this book until I heard about Jenkins. I am saying I don’t like Jenkins in case you weren’t quite clear. (Shesh! Shut up already!)

  9. 1 thats it here for me; just was all over the place and chasing in on itself if that makes sense? Went no where and still do not know where it was supposed to go????????????????????????????? I wanna be hear for Deadman, I like the character and want it to be successful.

    Just sayin’,


  10. What did I just read? D-D-D-D-Dropped!

  11. With Vic Sage back in Flashpoint and Renee Montoya seemingly dead in Batwoman I hope the next arc is Vic back in action as The Question.

  12. DC Universe Presents is a great idea. It would be a brilliant way to introduce a new/old character to the new 52. However everybody and his cousin has their own series right now with 52 titles this month. Deadman seems more deserving than some of the others at this point. It was a solid Deadman issue #1, but since it is not his book I have no interest searching out #2.

    This book will never be a regular on my pull list but depending on the solicit I may pick it up. This would be a perfect book to have no number associated with it as I expect the storytelling will be anything but serialized.

  13. This title will probably go on and off my pull list depending on the character but I’ll certainly be keeping an eye on it. Really liked the Deadman. As someone who is not deeply versed in DC I think this could be a fun way to get to know some of the more obscure characters.

  14. Not Chang’s best work, unfortunately.

  15. Nice surprise book. I liked the tone and the art. Will be back for issue 2.

  16. I wanted to love this, but i got a bit bored with it. It wasn’t good or bad….it was just kinda there. I’ll prob add and drop depending on each issue.

  17. The best Deadman story I’ve read in a long time.

  18. I gave this a 4 and thought the art and story were really good. I’ll be back for #2, as this was an interesting cliffhanger ending I did not expect.

    I’ve seen a lot of the inevitable comparisons to Quantum Leap, which is understandable. However, Deadman was created in 1967, over two decades before Quantum Leap. If anything, QL copied elements of Deadman.

  19. I pulled it and had a good time, sure it was a little wordy and not much happened but it’s just the set up, plus you have to support an anthology book that goes without question
