    I'm not really sure... it's too early.

    EDIT : BUT I'm attempting to "not" read all 52 titles.

    I think it's fair to say that Animal Man is pretty good.

    I'm running behind on Demon Knights because I just can't be bothered to care about swords and sorcery anymore.

    Resurrection Man is..... interesting.

    cool. Even Grifter looks marginally entertaining. Surprised really, this whole DC rebirth thing is, in retrospect, a great idea...I think they are still reaping rewards market wise and I want to chalk a lot of that up to the fact that they went retro/supernatural heavy and they seemed to have picked some really good creative teams to work the books. In my youth DC were the oddball bunch, Kamandi/Kobra/all star squadron...just weird tales. Hell, they even had Weird Tales and Weird War tales...etc. I am surprised that they haven't brought back the REAL House of Secrets with Kane & Abel. I swear, some of the titles they are putting out right now...should smell like the musty newsprint of my childhood. Well done DC. So far so good.

    I'm slightly miffed because I've been calling for this for years (altho they're not really going as far as I would have) and I was called crazy and told it would never happen.

    Grifter is actually far more interesting than I thought it would be... but it's still a little... I dunno.... 90'sish?

    In fact... a LOT of the books have a kind of "what's the point of this?" kind of extra pouches/muscles kind of feel.

    Plus I just hate the idea of Damien Wayne no matter how much I may be interested in reading his adventures.

    If I read comics. Which I don't.

    Funny thing is...the mainstream DC books are the ones that seem the least interesting. Although that link I posted
    Fourteen Thoughts About Fourteen DC Comics

    did say this,

    One thing I was struck with, watching the Green Lantern movie, was how good Mark Strong was as Sinestro, how he should have been the lead character in the movie, and what the hell is this Hal Jordan guy hogging the screen when Sinestro was getting short shrift. It really does appear that Geoff Johns thought the same way, and here every chance he gets, Sinestro gets to fill the screen and deliver bold, brash and very angry lines. The man in charge, the man with a plan and the only character in Green Lantern #3 you’d actually have any time for. With Doug Mahnke channelling his inner Bolland beautifully. More, more, more. Kill Hal Jordan off again, you can take the HEAT.
    which immediately perked my ears up. Never was a big Hal Jordan fan, but this sounds hella good. 'inner Bolland', well, I hear that and I am loving meself.

    I used love buying cheap back issues of weird and offbeat titles that DC published in the '70's. Seriously, what was in the water during those years? Lol! I mean that in a good way. I think part of it was the comics code opening up and letting writers and artists write stories about monsters, demons, and supernatural stuff in general. Part of it seem that people were much more into weird and experimental stories during that decade, and while that resulted in a lot of silliness, some really good stuff came out then. (And maybe there was drugs ).

    DC has kept that spirit with Vertigo, which is good, but the idea of playing around with more mainstream characters too is exciting. Hopefully, taking mainstream characters into interesting directions comes out of this relaunch. But hey, at least, sometimes, DC is trying. Marvel? Meh. Marvel 'experimenting' is adding 'bad words' to Spider-Man comics, yay!

    And don't ask too much for any solid opinions of this DC stuff yet. I come from the school of thought that says one needs to read a comic series for about six months before deciding whether the title is working or not.
    Only by living absurdly is it possible to break out of this infinite absurdity.

    Hmm... Well I'm a HUGE Hal Jordan fan but I was a fan of the Hal Jordan from "Emerald Dawn" and "The Road Back", not the bland Paul Newman-esque proto-hero that he's usually portrayed as.

    I don't much care for the direction the Green Lantern corner of the DCU has gone over the last 5 years and I don't think the current Sinestro arc is all that interesting either. It COULD be I suppose... but I've got no patience left for any of the other 6 "Rainbow Corps". I want Dave Gibbons steering the ship again.

    But yea... the mainstream books are the most boring.

    You wanted to know what's bad? Justice League International.

    They took a great mini-series, built up fan interest and have just completely murdered any and all momentum.
