Batman: Scott Snyder has basically turned into DC's playboy of comic book writing and honestly his Batman series so far has been great. He started on issue one and is still going strong.

Justice League: Geoff Johns started this run and people hated it at first due to changing up the characters and making them fit the new time frame. Its a new Universe and thats nothing to cry about. Justice League: War is loosely based on the New 52 Justice League. The Shazam back ups are really well done.

Forever Evil cross over event: The Justice league are dead, the world is ours. This is a good 8 issue mini event. 'Trinity War' tied into it but its not even worth reading cuz it was shitty. Justice League, Justice League of America and Justice League Dark all have tie ins that are background stories of other Leaguers during the events. Not needed to fully enjoy the Forever Evil story.

Aquaman: Geoff Johns at it again relaunching Aquaman and writer the first 19 issues (then coming back for #23-25). The cross over event between Aquaman and Justice league is actually being turned into a animated movie, called "Throne of Atlantis". In this story Aquaman tries to balance out being an Atlantian and saving humans that find him to be a joke.

Animal Man: One of the titles that took me by surprise in the new 52, I never read Grant Morrison's old run and honestly this changes so much that it doesn't matter. Some very graphic art, great story telling about a real family man stuck in a impossible situation. The series just ended a few months ago, worth picking up every issue and its cross over with...

Swamp Thing: who has a cross over with Animal Man in Rot world. Snyder (Batman dude) rebooted it and so far every issue is great in its own way. Even after changing teams, its hard to find terrible Swamp Thing issues, just one of those characters that gets treated really well. Love the art:

Earth 2: Taking characters that you know but putting them in a new earth where rules do not apply. Batman, Superman and Wonder woman die fighting a threat and the world hasn't had a new 'wonder' (what they call them in Earth 2), so you get to see new origins to powers and old characters take up new powers... its pretty interesting book. One of those "Its better as it goes along" books for sure.

Green Arrow: My favorite comic book hero, so of course he had to be added. Though I suggest starting off at issue #17 because the first 16 issues are horse shit (no character progression, just trash shit). Jeff Lemire took over on issue 17 and really waved a mythology around the character. Sadly DC comics just announced the 'Arrow' TV writers are taking over. Hopefully its good.

Future's End: This is a new series that just started. A weekly series that takes place 5 years into the future of the current New 52 universe, with a time traveling Batman Beyond, Grifter killing aliens and a fallout of a death of a hero.

Jack Kirby's being brought up in here, meanwhile Marvel's next big movie is featuring at least two of his characters (Groot and Ronan the Accuser)
Actually three...The Celestials which is DEFINATLY a Kirby concept and not a co creation is in the new movie in one form...

George, i think i may start to read a bit more DC. I give, i'll give Aquaman another chance, gotta give Johns credit on playing with the "no one likes Aquaman" story, pretty unique. Animal Man looks pretty cool too, so i'll give those two a shot first, if i like em, i may pick up other issues.

I actually used to read a bit of Swamp Thing, old school stuff though. I think it was Alan Moore's work, pretty intense stuff.

Both really. Sort of depends, I'll pick up single issues of series that I really love, like captain america, but I'll buy trades of spider-man and other series. I rarely buy single issues of DC comics though.

Trades are cool, take up less room and cost less. I really only do single issues tho, I just like that medium best. But yeah, the DC trades are cheap but take like months after a story finishes to be picked up by trades.

Image is way better at it, they do it right after the arc.

Since i've pretty much fall behind with DC, i'll probably end up buying trades. The last time i read DC issues was around Darkest Night, i was super into Green Lantern's Series for a while.

Must be super expensive picking up single issues all the time, no? The Marvel ones i pick up are $3.99 an issue, pretty pricey after a while.

Alright, so I've given Aquaman another shot and... It's good, I admit it, it's good shit. I'm on issue 18? I think. Really enjoyed the beginning with black manta and the others. Quite interesting to see that intense side of Aquaman.

Trade paperback/hardcover are for people who want to read the books but do not want to damage the actually comic itself.

Comics can come in the form books as well, instead of magazines.

4.95 is the current market-rate along with 1.00 ( which was back in 1991 ). Before that in the 1970's it was 75c.

You should also adjust the price of your purchasing power to that as well.

I'm actually on the Throne of Atlantis run and it's really good. Gotta hand it to Johns for making a good Aquaman run, didn't think it was possible. No doubt we'll be seeing him in a film soon enough.
