As a little background, I can't afford more than 12 books on my regular pull-list. When big events happen, I'll generally buy applicable tie-ins that look good, but I draw the line at 12 regular titles a month. I don't want to throw out anything on my current list, which is why I'm asking you (noble readers) for feedback. Which should I choose?

Thanks in advance.

"Which should I choose" no idea. "which would you add" Personally I would add Justice League of America since I have an aversion to anything Batman.

That said apparently all the Batman series are 2.99 each, I'm surprised, does that mean all the New 52 are 2.99 aside from Action Comics and Justice League? It makes me wonder why All-New X-Men is 3.99. I guess I sorta assumed it to be a spinoff when it isn't really.

Batman and robin is kinda boring right now so id choose jla

Yea the latest issue was way better than many others that came after the nobody arc but you can judge a book based on one issue

I've never been a fan of Johns in team books and so I'm a bit cautious with that one on the other hand Tomasi has been making good progress with Damian but then again besides the first arc he hasn't really managed to create a compelling enough situation again. If it were up to me I'd go with B&R because I like what Tomasi has been doing with Damian.

JLA for three reasons:

  1. Geoff Johns is the greatest comic book writer since the 1970s.
  2. The roster is even more awesome.
  3. Batman gets enough books. Why do we even need this many?

Batman and JL ARE in my pull list!

So it's pretty easy for me to say JLA, i feel that this series will be good.

As for B&R except from the first arc the rest was bad :-P

JLA because Martian Manhunter is a boss.

Yeah, I was pissed to learn JLA would be yet another 3.99 book. Then I heard Johns is writing a backup featuring Martian Manhunter...

I would choose JLA because Green Arrow and Hawkman on the team and I'm so tired of everything Batman.

Maybe this would have been better on the Batman forum. I forgot to consider possible Bat hate. Then again, it appears even the Batman fans are suggesting I go with JLA so it looks like I have my answer.

Thanks for the feedback, guys!

JLA because I want to see what direction would the book go and I love most of the characters in the roster.

I have both on my pull list regardless, and I pick JLA.
