    Probably four and a half stars but I'm rounding up because the concept is fun. More off-brand reinterpreting of DC characters, memorable one shots that build on the universe created in the first volume. THE JOKER - Karl Kesey and Matt Haley give an infectiously fun take on Joker as a merry prankster punking the police while dispensing her own brand of justice. There's a fun mystery about her identity which is resolved in a surprising way. NIGHTWING - hard to turn down Ostrander & Duursema workin Probably four and a half stars but I'm rounding up because the concept is fun.

There's a fun mystery about her identity which is resolved in a surprising way. NIGHTWING - hard to turn down Ostrander & Duursema working together. This tale of renegade superheroes banding together is naturally reminiscent of Suicide Squad, but the added government intrigue is a winner. SUICIDE SQUAD - Dixon and Grummett give us a Tangent Justice League of sorts. Dixon is a master at team books, and his Joker is deliriously entertaining. He also finds a way to get the straitlaced Atom to join the team. DOOM PATROL - I love this team of oddballs, but the Tangent team is a group of time-travelers out to prevent the end of the world. Not as weird as the name demands, but Jurgens crafts an engaging tale of impending doom. BATMAN - Jurgens and Janson take on the Dark Knight, an Arthurian ghost in a haunted suit of armor. I'm a sucker for a good alternate Batman, and I hope to see more of him in the third volume!

    Clever idea : writers take the names of various DC superheroes and create entirely new characters, keeping only the name. This volume contains a couple of my favorites: The Joker: now a kind of prankster/anarchist/ crime fighter that torments the authorities when she isn't catching bad guys. Fun and cleverly written. Secret Six: cool hero team, half characters that got their own comic ( Atom, Joker and Flash) and three new guys ( Plastic man, Spectre and Manhunter) they get thrown together to stop Clever idea : writers take the names of various DC superheroes and create entirely new characters, keeping only the name.

Secret Six: cool hero team, half characters that got their own comic ( Atom, Joker and Flash) and three new guys ( Plastic man, Spectre and Manhunter) they get thrown together to stop the evil Aquaman. The other stories are a mixed bag, Batman was a clever idea but the others left me a bit 'blah'. Fun experiment that DC didn't do much with after this bunch of stories.

    More good fun. I especially loved the new takes on the Doom Patrol and Nightwing.
