The Superman books have finally come around, the main Batman titles are still pretty good, JL has FINALLY turned a corner, Wonder Woman's good as ever, Flash is still solid, and books like Suicide Squad (yes, I realize the creative change is unsettling, but I have faith in Kindt), Earth 2, Swamp Thing, and Animal Man add a little variety.
I think it's a good foundation for the current line. I wish there were more quirky titles, but since DC seems to be hiring more indie writers, that wish may come true...as long as there's less interference. At this point, it's senseless to compare the New 52 to the last iteration, since that world isn't about to come back anytime soon. I hope they leave that world in the past and move forward with the world they have, flaws and all, and just make it work.
Fair enough. I'd respectfully disagree about the Superman titles (outside of Unchained, which I haven't read), JL, and Suicide Squad (it was getting good with the currently outgoing writer). Flash is...I guess you could call it solid. Kind of like mashed potatoes...I won't turn it down, but it doesn't necessarily make me praise it. Yes on Earth 2...except Robinson's leaving, so that book is up in the air. WW is top shelf. Dropped Swamp Thing and Animal Man after Rotworld, so no comment there.
I find it interesting that you're touting the influx of indie writers when one has already been unceremoniously dropped. Do you see long term potential there? I'm admittedly cynical about that. Agreed that comparisons between the old and new are fruitless, but I still think there wasn't a need to turn Superman into a petulant douche (my opinion). It just seems like editorial at DC is akin to a ship without a rudder.
