YMMV / DC: The New Frontier

  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: In a story full of superheroes, it's nice to see ordinary men like Rick Flagg and John Henry being idolised by their sons. Just goes to show that anyone can be somebody's hero.
  • Nightmare Retardant: Batman's first costume is supposed to look intimidating, but due to Darwyn Cooke's Lighter and Softer art style he still looks pretty cuddly.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character:
    • Despite all the buildup as a major character, Superman is quickly knocked out by the Center and is missing until the end.
    • Robin only appears briefly, and is just used as a plot device for Batman to tell Superman about his new Lighter and Softer style.note 
    • Aquaman only makes a brief appearance at the end.
  • The Woobie: Poor Martian Manhunter.
