    Not read many DC and these three were read very recently so they stick in the mind more, I do plan on reading more DC but there don't seem to be many interesting ones out, it's a very Batman/Superman/New 52 saturated market I find when i'm looking, so any suggestions would be very welcome.

    Kingdom Come
    Black Adam Dark Age
    Injustice

    Go for
    Blackest Night
    Superman/Batman trades (most are really good)
    JSA & Justice Society trades
    JLA: Tornadoes Path & Lightning Saga
    Power Girl by Amanda Conner
    Wonder Woman: The Hiketeia
    Wonder Woman by George Perez
    Power of SHAZAM
    All Star Superman
    Batman/Superman/Wonder Woman: Trinity
    JLA: Heaven's Ladder
    Justice League: A New Beginning
    J.L. The Nail & Another Nail
    JLA/JSA : Virtue and Vice
    The Flash ( any Mark Waid trades)
    Legion of Super-Heroes: The Great Darkness Saga
    Wrath of the Spectre by Michael Fleisher and Jim Aparo
    Green Lantern/Green Arrow by O'Neil & Adams
    Superman/SHAZAM: First Thunder
    That should keep you busy.
    The JSA stuff is really worth it in particular since DC has decided to defecate all over the legacy of the JSA.

    Yeah , Kingdom Come pretty much defines who and what Superman is at the core of his being. Infact it probably defined what DC was in the 90s. That's why it kills me to see what DC has become lately.

    Yeah; I feel like there's a dark cloud over DC. I'd like to say I've survived worse in the many years I've been a fan, but at the moment I can't think of anything. Probably because the intention here is that this is to be permanent. I know I would be a lot more receptive to this if it were handled in the way that Marvel incorporated the Ultimate line. Here we have no choice but to eat a **** sandwich; everything else is off the menu.:csad:

    You act like there is nothing good in DC right now and that's just wrong. Get over the reboot already.

    OK I will acknowledge that Batman, Green Lantern, and Aquaman are good, but those are characters that were not really changed (rather just a continuation of what was already happening pre-New 52). Therefore they are exceptions that are having a positive effect on the New 52 (and not that the New 52 is having a positive effect on them).
    As for getting over it; sorry if my complaints bother you, but rest assured I do not lose sleep over this reboot (my life is not that pathetic).
    As I understand it this is a place to speak your opinion on comics. As a DC fanatic for years, it gives me no pleasure to voice my criticism of something I've loved for so long. Nothing they are doing right now even compares to the best stuff from the past (in my humble opinion).:cwink:

    Aquaman is not a continuation of pre nu52.

    We'll never really know...... but this is most likely where it could have gone with Arthur and Mera after Brightest Day; so I feel my assumption is valid.
