Mind the bump, but I suppose this IS relevant now that that we're post New 52.

So, uh, now the answer is far and away "Animal Man".

My 52s résumé of the first issues:

Great ones:
  • Action - Grant Morrison
  • Batgirl - I love seeing Babs back in buisiness :)
  • Batman - That's Batman, simple as that
  • Batwoman - Williams III, enough said
  • Catwoman - A Catwoman for grown ups :)
  • Detective Comics - Maybe the best one
  • Justice League - Just Great, that's how JLA should be written XXL
  • Justice League Dark - Nice spin on some B-Characters
  • Nightwing - again, like the new spin
  • Red Hood and the Outlaws - Great relaunch of the three characters
  • Supergirl - She got me at "...the dream isn't over?"
  • Voodoo - hottest alien chick ever :)
Good ones:
  • Aquaman
  • Batman & Robin
  • Birds of Prey
  • Captain Atom
  • DC Universe Presents
  • The Flash
  • Green Arrow (like the new spin of a younger Ollie)
  • Green Lantern (nice premise)
  • Green Lantern Corps
  • Justice League International - Batman saves this one
  • Mister Teriffc
  • Stormwatch - May be better for people not knowing the work of Ellis and Millar with the same characters
  • Superboy
  • Superman
Bad ones:
  • Batwing
  • Demon Knights
  • Firestorm
  • Hawk & Dove
  • Legion Lost
  • Legion of Super-Heroes - I'm a SF sucker, but this is a mess
  • Red Lantern - may get better
  • The Savage Hawkman - a mess
  • Teen Titans - Compare this with Red Hood and cry
  • Wonder Woman - My favorite DC female character drowned in a bland story and bland drawings
Not read:
  • All-Star Western
  • Animal Man
  • Dark Knight
  • Blackhawks
  • Blue Beetle
  • Deathstroke (half of first issue and stopped)
  • Frankenstein
  • Grifter
  • I, Vampire
  • Men of War (stopped after issue one)
  • O.M.A.C.
  • Static Shock
  • Suicide Squad (only first issue)
  • Swamp Thing

Batgirl is good, but I was enjoying Steph!Batgirl so much that I just can't get into the reboot.

Here is my résumé of all the #1s from DC's new 52:







The best book (overall): Batman #1

The best story: Action Comics #1

The best art: Flash #1

The worst book: Supergirl #1

Most Promising book: All-star Western #1

Most Disappointing book: Superman #1

Reviewers liked, but I disliked: Wonder Woman #1

Reviewers disliked, but I liked: The Savage Hawkman #1

p.s. Please note that the blue ratings are not the 'stupid' ComicVine ratings (they rate everything between 3.5 and 4.5), but the ratings from comicbookresources.com that I have entered manually.

p.p.s. I hope you notice the one-line reviews I add in my ComicRack. As there is no dedicated field for this (I had requested this in the past), i have to 'misuse' the pre-existing fields. Sometimes, I feel like writing a tutorial :"How to exploit Comicrack to suit your needs" :laugh:

Definitely Batman. I don't give 5-stars to many comics. Batman is the only current title that has earned that mark for me.

Although Batman is my favorite character of all time.. The green lantern titles of the New 52 have blown my mind (being that I started my comic reading due to the New 52.) The green lantern titles are easily the most action-packed and entertaining comics I have ever read, this group including: Green Lantern, Red Lanterns, Green Lantern New Guardians, and Green Lantern Corps!

you should check out Blue Beetle. He is a new character to me, but the relationship between the boy and the beetle just cracks me up.

Animal man really looking good to me so is swamp thing, but not for the art and I may get bored, but I am a bit hooked on what is going to happen with the rot.

All star has been ok. I like seeing gotham back in the old west.

I agree about hawkman I'm confused and don't seem to care, but trudging through. Teen Titans I found myself liking, maybe just because they were fairly new characters to me, but not so much that I'm lost like in JL dark.
