I mean, the majority of the DCnU has kind of fizzled, mainly because of inept editorial micro management, but by the same token the fact that they have been willing to take a punt on stuff like I, Vampire, Dial H and Animal Man can only be a good thing, even if they haven't set the sales charts on fire in all cases. I see this as more of that, which is great: lord knows the core super-hero titles that don't involve Batman are kind of pants just now.
I think some if their core superhero stuff is pretty good, personally. Stuff like Flash, Aquaman and Wonder Woman have been surprisingly strong. The worst stuff, I feel, is sort of the secondary characters like Teen Titans, Green Arrow, etc. don't get me wrong, I think Justice League is boring and the Superman books are pretty much unreadable, but there's some gems in the superhero books.
But I agree with you about DC taking more chances. Those two new books they announced aren't my cup of tea, but its good to see them doing something different. I'm hoping they continue to come up with unique things.
