Green arrow (lemire)
Batgirl (Simone) didn’t care much for it after she quit the book and they did the soft reboot i just wasn’t the target audience for that book any more


Oh totally forgot aquaman (johns)


There was so much that came out of that era that I enjoyed, this is going to be difficult…

Multiversity - probably my favorite of the bunch - I’d been waiting for this series for what seemed like decades.
Superman/Wonder Woman - I actually liked them together
Earth 2
Shazam! - the backup in Justice League
Omega Men - first introduced me to Tom King
Green Lantern (Johns)

That’s just off the top of my head - I’m sure I could come up with another ten on another day.

Oh yeah! Justice League, Forever Evil, Morrison’s Action Comics … so much good! (Not that there weren’t some clunkers)

Seeing a lot of love for Geoff Johns’ run on Justice League. Do people really like that? I found the characterizations in that book to be way off. (Batman just “not noticing” that there were three Jokers all along, etc.)

Johns Justice league was my least favorite of any of his new 52 stuff I still thought it was decent though

  1. Animal Man
  2. Action Comics ( Morrison )
  3. Frankenstein: Agent of Shade
  4. Dial H
  5. Earth 2
  6. Batman
  7. Mr. Terrific
  8. Wonder Woman

That’s pretty much it, I wasn’t a fan of the New 52


As of now:

Wonder Woman
Action Comics
Superman/Wonder Woman
Justice League
All Star Western


Is the New 52 Starfire any good? I avoided it like the plague after Red Hood and the Outlaws…

It is a light-hearted, fish-out-of-water, heartwarming tale. I enjoyed it.

Batman Eternal

Animal Man was my favorite. Batman and Wonder Woman were really good too.

Batman eternal, Batman, and swamp thing were all the high points for me. My favorite run of swamp thing overall it really shows him and what he can actually do with his powers.
