Please recommend me the New 52 Super-Family books I should read, I'm not a big fan of Morrisson but willing to give it a try.
The only real positive I've heard from the Super books is Morrison's Action Comics. But frankly I was never able to get into his Batman run which I felt was being weird purely for the sake of it. So because of that, I'm waiting for the Snyder-Lee collaboration next year.
NOt sure how the H'el on earth crossover will effect Snyder & Lees man of steel though.
My hunch is it won't have any noticeable effect. Man of Steel isn't out for at least another 6-7 months or so. And though it's supposed to happen within the continuity, I suspect DC will want to make it as newbie-friendly as possible so fans of the movie will have an easy place to jump on the bandwagon.
Of course, I haven't really been following the books so take my opinion with a grain of salt.
Supergirl is pretty good, despite a few occasional low points, I'd actually say Supergirl is the best of the super-family books out right now. Morrison is leaving Action Comics and Andy Diggle is taking over, might be a good place to jump in. Superman has gradually improved since Lobdell took the reigns, but its definitely a Scott Lobdell book, meaning I'd only pick it up if you tend to enjoy his writing. Superboy started out great but really dipped in quality after the first arc (as with much of the New 52).
There's a new Superman title launching in 2013 by Scott Snyder and Jim Lee that will most likely be amazing.
I've also been liking Scott Lobdell's Superman, which so far has been Superman Annual #1, Superman #0, and Superman #13
