Secret Six was Simones best writing as well as birds of prey. I found there was alot of great stories that came out before and after the reboot. Some things I wish they kept and other things that should have been redone.
The people at DC who have really surprised me with great writing has be Jeff with his Green Arrow series; I'm interested to read justice league united. Charles Soule has done a fantastic job with Red Lanterns. I liked milligans overall story but Charles really builds on the characters and interaction to each other. So far Im liking Jeff Parker doing Aquaman, while its not as epic as the grand as Geoff Johns, It has however been a great character series so far. Keith Giffen has done a fantastic job fleshing out the He-man universe; I have to admit I did not expect anyone to really give Motu a mature story read and this new DC series has surprised me. and thats a good thing.
