Spring has sprung!

Flowers are blooming, bees are buzzing, Harley is breaking King Shark out of Belle Reve prison… all is right in the DCU as both heroes and villains face all sorts of different spring breaks.

Breaking out of a coffin? Lex Luthor has that covered.

Spring break training? Send in Superman!

Breaking out of your shell? Batman and Mr. Freeze explore that possibility through a connection in their shared past.

Breaking down a worthy adversary? Katana and her sword of souls might just be able to tackle that.

And it wouldn’t be a spring break without a Teen Titans beach trip!

All these and more in DC’s Spring Breakout! – eight breakout stories to put a spring in your step (is there a zit breakout story? You’ll have to read to find out!)

    DC anthology comics are normally a mixed bag, taking creative teams and letting them go hog wild with stories and characters that might not be featured in the “big” books. That being said, Spring Breakout is able to buck the trend in offering readers with eight delightful stories that play on the strengths of the DCU and its characters that are well worth the $10 price tag. Of the stories, my favorites included Harley and King Shark hitting the town to celebrate the latter’s birthday, Lex Luthor completing a rather complicated challenge, and Martian Manhunter and Clayface having a rather dynamic “act-off”. Don’t let the fact that the stories here might not be referenced in future crossovers or world-ending subplots, DC’s Spring Breakout! is DC Comics at its best and has serious funs with its heroes and villains along the way.

    Overall, this is a fun anthology, but it feels much more scattered than previous ones.

    I’m really  beginning to enjoy these little respites from the standard DC plotlines, as they give readers a soft mix of character, but without overpowering darkness. However, the Katana story felt a bit misplaced for a book called DC’s Spring Breakout!. “Cold Feet” and “Opening Day” were my favorites from this mix.

    Pick this comic up just for those two, however, the rest are a treat as well!

    This looks like one of the better seasonal specials DC has put out with our crew averaging a decent score. These kinds of releases do provide something you don’t get from any other books published by DC (outside the Black and White backups in The Brave and The Bold). While not every story hits, I, personally, am glad we continue to get these, as a reminder of an earlier era of comics.
