DC's New 52: The Comics I'll Definitely Be Picking Up


Justice League
Justice League is a no brainer for me, the super duo of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee? The best of the best on the team? I'm sold.
Action Comics
It's Grant Morrison, prepare yourself for greatness.
Batgirl
Gail Simone + Batgirl = Win Gail's a fantastic writer, and I'm sure she won't disappoint. And it's Barbara Gordon un-crippled, I gotta know how.
Green Arrow
I love Oliver Queen, he's one of my favorite DC characters, and JT Krul writes him fantastically. I'm also sold on Dan Jurgens doing the art.
Justice League International
Dan Jurgens is writing, he's amazing. Plus, I love Booster Gold, and I love the line-up on this team!
Men of War
I've always been intrigued by Sgt. Rock, but I've never been able to get into him since he's dead, and I never felt like finding old volumes. With this comes his grandson, who sounds just as interesting. I really like the premise of soldiers fighting in a battlefield made by the DCU's villains.
OMAC
  I always thought that the idea of an OMAC was cool, and this art looks amazing. Dan Dido is a cool writer, but I'm even more excited by the fact that Keith Giffen is also writing! May his Doom Patrol RIP.
Swamp Thing
Swamp Thing has always been a really cool and interesting character, and I'm excited to see what he does in the DCU. And the combo of Scott Snyder and Yanick Paquette sounds like it goes together better than peanut butter and chocolate.
Green Lantern
I really love Geoff Johns' work on Green Lantern, and this should be no different. I'm really excited to see how things play out, and how Hal will get his ring back.
Legion Lost
I've always wanted to get into the Legion, but I've never been able to, and this seemed like the perfect jumping on point. I like the premise of the Legion stuck in the past, and I really love Fabian Nicieza's work on Red Robin and Thunderbolts, so I don't think his writing quality will lower.
Batman
Scott Snyder has never failed to impress when it comes to writing Batman stories. I'm really pumped for this, and Greg Capullo has some amazing art skills, I loved his art for Haunt!
Captain Atom
I loved Captain Atom in Justice League: Generation Lost, I thought he was really interesting, and he has really cool powers. And again, it's JT Krul.
Aquaman
Geoff Johns is an overall great writer, and I can't wait to see Aquaman get all the respect he deserves. If anyone can write him, it's Geoff Johns, and he wrote him fantastically in Brightest Day. And Ivan Reis' art kills!
New Guardians
I love Kyle Rayner, I love Saint Walker, and I love Arkillo. This team should make for an interesting group, I've always loved the rainbow brigade. :P
Teen Titans
I love Bart, Superboy, and Tim Drake. I especially love Tim Drake, and I'm disappointed Red Robin got cancelled, but thank God I have him in this book! It looks great, and I love Brett Booth's art.
 
 
What are you picking up? 
 
That's all for now folks!

Wonder Woman and Supergirl are definite musts for me. I'm also intrested in Batgirl, Batwoman, Batman, and New Guardians. Listening to Cornell has got me intrested in Demon Knights even though I have no intrest in Etrigan.

@harleyquinn12: I'm really iffy on Wonder Woman and Batwoman, but I'll probably end up picking them up after I read some reviews for them!

@The_Tree
I think Batwoman is based partially on JH Williams and Amy Reeder's art.

@harleyquinn12: I know, I've just never read any Batwoman, so I don't really know what to expect, I'm thinking of picking up Elegy. To get a feel for the character, I've only read her in Batman Inc.

Captain Atom and Aquaman are two that I would really like to get, but I want to hear reviews on them. Since Geoff Johns is writing Aquaman, I'm sure it'll be a pretty secure property for a while, so I can always go back and pick it up later. But Captain Atom might not be around for long if it doesn't gain enough support, so I have to get in on it quickly before it goes away. Really, I'm just a fan of J. T. Krull. He seems to really love and care for his characters. :) 
 
Very cool list, though. :)

I'm looking forward to this a lot. Mostly I'm excited for the Superman and Batman titles.

@cosmo111687: Haha, thanks! I'm really hoping Captain Atom survives too, he's really cool, and was one of my favorite parts of Justice League: Generation Lost. But if his title doesn't last, I assume that he still has a spot open for him on the JLI. And J.T. Krul is awesome, the only thing I haven't liked of his was Teen Titans.
@shawn87: Haha, don't even get me started on how excited I am for the Bat titles.
