There's multiple threads asking this very question near the top. Try this one: Which New 52 comic series are best?

Edit: Are you asking current series or any arc from the past?

Maybe try Justice League.

Green Arrow and Constantine are the new ones to pick up. Both are written by Jeff Lemier and are great. GA starts the new story at 17 and Constantine is only on 2 but has been really strong.

Oh, are you talking best of all time? I would go with The Blue Beetle from the late 80's/90's and Booster Gold from around that time. Or the 2nd Booster Gold series from before the reboot was also really good.

Detective Comics before the reboot was pretty great too.

Geoff John's JSA was pretty great too.

Geoff Johns on Green Lantern is top-notch.

Snyder on Batman has been great, as has Dini on Detective Comics.

The pre-52 Booster Gold series was really good, and the current Flash title is also awesome (not to mention Wonder Woman as well).

If you mean pre-reboot then that's going to be a long list...

  • Aquaman

Are Swamp Thing and Animal Man still good? I really enjoyed it for the first six months or so but then it just got to me how dark the story was and the "ugly/dirty" art style of both books really felt like a bummer too.

The original run of Justice League International is amazing.

Yeah, I am told the 2 writers that did issues 1-16 did nothing interesting with them. But what I have read so far (17-20) has been really good. If you were a fan of Mike Grell's run of Green Arrow you will especially like it.
