FCBD12 had some fun freebies. A DC Nation offerings included Superman Family Adventures, Young Justice, and Green Lantern: Animated Series. It is a nice all-ages title taster.

This super sampler is the place to check out Green Lantern Adventures and Young Justice, two sensational new comic series from the DC Kids line based on Warner Bros. Animation’s popular Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice, featured on the upcoming DC Nation programming block on Cartoon Network in 2012. The sampler includes two exciting, all-new stories that readers of all ages will enjoy. Plus, get a sneak-peek at the brand-new Superman Family Adventures monthly series from the Tiny Titans creative team!

Admittedly, I did not pick up this for Superman: Family Adventures. I was curious, but as expected it is a tad Tiny Titans for my taste. As a fan of all ages books, I’m glad that DC is putting a title like this out. I won’t be picking it up regularly, but I’m glad it exists.

Green Lantern is a fine cartoon and upcoming comic. This is a nice short story that sets up more action in the future. It is a nice complex look at the relationship between Green and Red Lanterns. Still not really why I picked up the comic, but this was a fun sample. This is my second free Green Lantern sample this year and this one is as good as the last.

Young Justice has recently become an obsession. Horrible toys, great show, and a comic that fits in between cartoon episodes is a nice overall package. As a fan of the Todd Nauck, Peter David Young Justice, I am still a fan of the new Cartoon Network version. Greg Weisman and Kevin Hopps are a nice team on the story development. Unfortunately, the sample included in this comic is barely more than an appetizer. A few pages of Artemis and Green Arrow, Robin and Batman set up Young Justice #16. I have the feeling that these pages will be recycled.

This is my second Young Justice Free Comic Book Day sampler. This one is not as filling as the last, but it is nice to see this title being pushed. I wish they had pushed the title more than Superman: Family Adventures, but to each their own. This flip-book will still be a part of my Young Justice paraphernalia collection.

I passed on the 52 sampler. The kiddie shelves are more my taste at DC right now.  As an advocate for all-ages books and entry points for new readers, I am glad this book is part of what DC is pushing this year at Free Comic Book Day.
