The Worst Comic out the titles that I have been reading out of the new 52 is Superman. Not worst in the fact that it is overall bad, however I feel very disappointed with the book. it feels like there is no central focus on it. the first story arc with the superpowers fight him was ok at best. from that point nothing really stood out to me, with maybe the exception of the appearance of Hellspont, but even their fight seemed dull. I mean come on Hellspont at one time was the major villian of the Wildcats and he and Superman produce such as bland uneventful fight. What I do like about Superman though is Clark Kent. He is written very well and I like reading about his reactions to how others see Superman and especially his interactions with Lois Lane.

Now onto to the Best Comic I'm reading in the New 52:

Batman!!!!!!

I waited for about 10 issues to come out before I began reading Batman, and I must say that when I read the first issue I was like what was I thinking. I should have been reading this from day 1. I love how the story just unfolds very subtly and then picks up a great deal as the book moves forward. The history of Gotham is also an excellent plot point which grabs the reader and gives them a greater understanding of the motivations of the antagonists in book so far. We see Bruce Wayne begin to question his sanity and how his claim that Gotham is his city. As the series progresses Batman and Bruce Wayne go through what I would call a moment of clarity regarding their mission for Gotham city. Another great part about the series is Alfred, I love how he is always there to be somewhat of Batman's moral compass much like how Batman has to be Damien's. Overall the book is awesome, well written, superbly drawn, and a very good read.

@photowill404: I totally agree. Have you read any other of the Batman comics? like the Batman and and Robin or The Detective Comics? Those are really good as well. The new 52 has been promising so far.

I've been disappointed with Green Arrow lately. Art has been a bit sloppy and the story not the best

Then you should pick up 'The Flash' - in my humble opinion, the art has been consistently great from issue 1

Superman really has been disappointing. Supergirl started off well but all this Banshee crap is destroying it for me. Action Comics at least has something going for it. Batman on the other hand has been fantastic. I can't get enough of it. Picking up old TPBs to help with my Bat-ddiction. New 52 got me back into comics having not read them in years and Batman has shown how fantastic the writing can be. I also love the variation in art across the Batman titles.

Batman has been the best for me as i love how Batman thought he knew his city and even we thought he knew it but both of us were wrong.

The worst has to be for me between Superman and Green arrow. I read the the first two issues of superman and just could not will my self to go on. I have stuck with Green arrow as he is one of my favorite characters but have been disappointed by the stories currently.

Aquaman and Batman have been pretty great consistantly.

The Savage Hawkman, The Dark Knight (pre-writer change), and Green Arrow have been disappointing.

Wat? how many of them have you even read?

#18 Posted by Lvenger (17906 posts) - - Show Bio

@Imagine_Man15: Awwww :( I take it you're an Outlaws fan? Sorry but it's just a difference of taste. I haven't liked any of Lobdell's New 52 work, especially this and Teen Titans. I'm sort of a Wolfman purist and the changes Lobdell has made to the original history aren't good in my eyes.

@VenomousDragon: As I said above, Wolfman purist. Starfire's origin and unique personality Wolfman gave her have been quashed in the New 52. Her relationship with Dick Grayson, her stance on sleeping around and dressing even more provocatively than she did pre reboot are just some of the reasons why I'm not a fan of Lobdell.

#19 Posted by Imagine_Man15 (1801 posts) - - Show Bio

@Lvenger: Yeah, I'm an Outlaws fan, but I completely agree with you about Teen Titans. TT was one of my biggest disappointments out of the New 52. I'm pretty much indifferent to Superboy, so Lobdell is 50/50 for me so far.

I was on the fence with Starfire's portrayal at first, but it's gotten better as he's expanded on her character more.

I'm loving Red Hood. Not sure how it'll go now they're taking it into space - I really liked the stories about the Untitled. The art and in particular the page layouts are so fresh and really do look amazing.

Also loving Dial H. So weird!

@bennyq: I see. Well, I'm a big Barry fan myself...so I guess you can see one of the reasons why I'm loving the title :P

#22 Edited by Moon_Bat_87 (719 posts) - - Show Bio

Well I personally dont like that Wildstorm Universe has been taken from Multiverse status and made into official New 52 status.

But I am loving the new Batman stuff.

I know some people don't like the new Green Arrow because they prefer when Ollie had his beard and was older. But I'm loving this new Green Arrow and I think the stories are really good. People who haven't tried it should give it a chance.

I'm a Barry Allen fan too. I think he has the best bad guys. Love the Rouges.

@Moon_Bat_87: is the whole wild storm universe now in the DCnU? Planetary doesn't really fit with the DCU, they did that one shot with the JLA but I'm pretty sure it was non canon.

#26 Posted by bennyq (405 posts) - - Show Bio

@Catsnlynne: Youve got me all wrong, I like that they've made him younger and I could take or leave the beard ( although I wouldn't be surprised if he grows it back sooner or later). I just think the new stories have been so so and the art pretty bad. Hopefully his #0 will be good though!

@SUNMAN: I think Suicide Squad or Deathstroke might be worse than RHATO now. Still Lobdell's not in my good books as a writer by any means.

i guess its a good thing im not reading green arrow

#36 Posted by Deathstroke24 (1 posts) - - Show Bio

Why so much hate for green arrow? I think it's pretty good. (Granted I only started reading comics since new 52) I personally prefer:

justice league, justice league dark (constatine is awesome!), aquaman, omac, deathstroke, demon knights, blue beetle, action comics, superman (both have turned me from a hater to supes becoming one of my favs), Frankenstein agent of shade, resurrection man, swamp thing, earth 2 and hawkman

The worst I've read so far is hawk and dove and captain atom (which sucks cuz he's so badass)

I think the main thing is DC is putting out allot more good exciting stories than mediocre or crappy stories lol

@deathstroke24: Green Arrow was terrible before Jeff Lemire took over as the writer (issue 17 to present). Now it's amazing

Worst: The Dark Knight (I'm willing to bet that the only reason this POS is selling so well is because it shares the same title as the movie), Teen Titans, Superman

What's up with all these old threads being brought back to life lately?

#45 Posted by Suprman (442 posts) - - Show Bio

Best for me is Animal Man, Aquaman, Nightwing and Superman Unchained.

Worst is anything written by Scott Lobdell. The Guy's work is nothing short of crud IMO.

#46 Posted by AnimeLoverHasan (5 posts) - - Show Bio

I know really less about the Pre-New 52 because I just started collecting DC comics.

So a/q to me

The Best: Batman(of course), The Flash(really love Barry Allen), Earth 2(I prefer this series over JL) and Justice League Dark(just love those Constantine one-liners).

The Worst: I don't really care :p
