^Jump in with Aquaman, Demon Knights, Wonder Woman, Animal Man, & Swamp Thing, if you dont want to feel lost. These would be my top tier. Overall though with the exception of the Batman and Green Lantern titles which carry over stories to an extent most of the Nu52 are pretty "new" reader friendly.

I'm also currently reading Icemizer's list except for WW so I'll seconded that.

I would also say Action Comics as well. I think Morrison's run has been great fun. It's starts at a jumping on point as well. But I think pretty much that's true of all of them if you are basically familiar with the character.

Catwoman and Supergirl this week. Before pretty good, though I think I'm beginning to find Supergirl's costume more and more ridiculous as time goes on.

The article does point out that the work is in progress, so that's not the final depiction, just most likely a concept. I second Wonder Woman. Like "Aquaman" and possibly "Batman" it's been the most consistently great New 52 book out right now (at least that I'm reading).

Hey everyone, I've recently been reading my way through the various Crises and am interested in starting reading the new 52 comics. I'm wondering if these stories really do provide a decent new starting point for the characters, or if they simply proceed on with the continuing stories (but with new numbers and a few retcons). In short, would I be lost?
Action Comics
Batman
Wonder Woman

Basically these three books reintroduce the Big 3: Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman in the new universe.

Just finished Wonder Woman #12...I am running out of words to express just how awesome this book is. That ending...oh man. Azzy has hit a grand slam with this book. I think it's over taken "Action Comics" and "Batman" as my favourite New 52 book I'm still reading.

Yeah, I think Wonder Woman is the best of the nu52, makes the whole thing worth it. Like it's Vertigo good with a solid foot in the DCU. It's smart, creative, exciting, surprising. It's a great urban fantasy book.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

^ I think you describe it perfectly. It has that Vertigo feel to it. I did not see that ending coming at all. I'm really looking forward to the zero issue next month. If I had one complaint about the book, and it's kind of a minor one for me, is that I'd like to see Diana interact back in Man's World again. We've not seen Steve and her together in the present time in her book (of course we have in Justice League and we know they're together but it'd be nice for her to return to New York (I even forget where she was at the start of the book now LOL). Otherwise this just is sensational.

Is anyone else reading the Batman Beyond Unlimited series? I happen to be really enjoying it, especially as it continues the storyline and character arcs from the DC Animated universe, not only Terry McGinnis but the JLU as well.

JLU is alright in that it references not only DCAU, but also some of Nguyen's previous work like the Batman and Bekka story.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

I just thought of something...if Azzarello is only just introducing the New Gods now in "Wonder Woman"...what does this mean regarding the opening arc of "Justice League" five years in the past where we saw the team confront and learn of Darkseid? Is this already a contradiction in continuity? Or is this something else entirely? Any thoughts? I can't be the only one who's thought about this since the big reveal.

Just because they know a little about Apocalips, it doesn't mean that they know a lot about New Genesis.

To be fair, as much as I love the new Wonder Woman, none of us saw the cliffhanger because it's completely unearned: you can fool everyone if you just don't set the swerve up at all. It is a great book, so steeped in WW lore.

Best line of the month, as always from Demon Knights; Vandal Savage: "Unacceptable! I will not die so a woman with no face can gain different genitalia!"
