Of all the new 52 titles I’ve tried so far, this one was the only one where I couldn’t make it past the first issue; mainly because the only reason I was interested in giving it a try was because it had Starfire in it. Turns out it doesn’t have Starfire, it just has a Starfire brand sex doll.

By the end of the issue, all I could think was “where’s that 1-800 number so I can vote to kill you again?”
