Really a hard, complete, reboot is probably what they should have done. There still seems to be too many strands of the old continuity (particularly in Batman).
The titles still drawing in whole or part are:
Green Lantern and family titles...hello Red Lanterns!!
Swamp Thing
Animal Man
Hawk & Dove (cancelled) but the characters themselves still hold
Deadman over in Justice League Dark
John Constantine again in JLD

These were all players in the Brightest Day & Search for Swamp Thing that all ran in whole or part into the nu52 versions.

That's why the "great new jumping in point" as part of their story rang hollow. Should've just stuck with the digital sales angle cause it was only partial true for the lines relaunch. Add the Bat titles in there and other main GL books and it's half the line is tied in some way to "old" continuity.
