Best DC title out there, right now?

#1 Posted by Bezza (3859 posts) - - Show Bio

Interested to hear people's views on what the best DC title is right now. A few months ago I'd have said Superman unchained but I think it has slipped a bit..quite a few people have told me they rate Animal Man, it gets consistent high marks on the various review boards!

Green Arrow or Aquaman IMO - it depends on what you prefer.

Green Arrow is darker and edgier, and a has a bit of a psychological tone.

Aquaman is more mythos driven and is lighter in tone

Both are excellent.

Animal Man and Swamp Thing are both good, but they're not quite as good as they were when Rotworld was going on.

Green Arrow is good now? That's good to hear. The earlier trades haven't been reviewed very well.

I'd say Batman or Aquaman are my favorites, but I only buy the trades so I'm far behind on current issues.

@silverpool:

Jeff Lemire took over Green Arrow at issue 17 and pretty much made it one of the best DC books. Sorrentino's art is also ridiculous.

You should read it.

And GJ just finished his run on Aquaman. It was absolutely amazing.

I'm hearing lots of good things about Green Arrow, must take a look. Not a big fan of Aquaman, but AM a fan of GJ. Is he going to do a Shazam comic? If so I think I may hop onboard as Shazam is a new character to me, but growing on me all the time! Love the Shazam stories that were tagged onto the JL Series....brilliant art and Love his suit!

Both are must reads as far as I'm concerned.

If you're not a fan of Aquaman the run will make you a fan.

I don't know if he's going to do Shazam

Batman, Green Arrow, Swamp Thing and Animal Man are four of my absolute favorite comic book characters. I feel pretty privelaged right now because all four have a series and they're great.

Aquaman and the Flash up until this month but going forward my answer will probably be Batman and Detective Comics starting in April or whenever the new creative team from the Flash (don't feel like butchering the spelling of their names) starts their run.

Green Arrow, Jeff Lemire has just been killing it.

Another of my personal favorites has been The Flash

The perfect way to describe New 52 Aquaman.

#13 Posted by NewKid (367 posts) - - Show Bio

my top 4 hasn't changed since new52 started... - Batman, Wonder Woman, Animal Man, Aquaman,

Heard so many people praising Lemire's Green Arrow... really wanna check it out. Might wait for the first trade of his issues (vol 4 I believe...)

None of them are blowing me away right now but I'd say the best DC has to offer is Green Arrow and Green Lantern.

But if you include the Vertigo line then the best would easily be Trillium.

#15 Posted by Mattpool (21 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm really digging batman and superman unchained. I also think Harley Quinn's new book is going to be extremely entertaining issue zero was very promising!!

Wonder Woman

Green Arrow

Nightwing

Aquaman

The Flash

Justice League Dark

Phantom Stranger ( really good, and one of the most underrated titles... )

I'm so excited for that. I think they're gonna kill it.
The early artwork looks like the best Batman stuff I've seen since Capullo started.

I enjoyed John's run on green lantern and superman unchained is good but I would have to say Batman (Scott Snyder). Stuff like forever evil, Wonder Woman, Nightwing & Aquaman seems good as well though.

Until the epic modern day myth story ends next week, I still say Wonder Woman is the best title DC is putting out. A wonderful story, excellent implementation of Greek mythology, tragedy and horror along with changing the mythos and supporting cast in a modern context.

Batman is pretty good!! Ditto Green Arrow, which I am collecting the trades for.....

..also love Flash....

Scott Snyder on Batman is my personal favorite, then Jeff Lemire on Green Arrow. Justice League is kinda average imo, except for Throne of Atlantis, which is my favorite arc in that book. I also think the flash is good
