DC's reboot has been pretty solid. and you should be able to jump into most of them with very little problem. my recommendations

Justice League
Batman
Batman & Robin
Flash
Wonder Woman
Action Comics
Green Lantern


A little away from the Justice League and their members, Swamp Thing has probably been the best book out of the entire relaunch, and Animal Man is right up there too.

with Marvel, it depends, Civil War might be the best jumping off point for the entire universe, but i can give you better recommendations if you have a specific character you want to read

Animal Man has been very good. I have gotten Swamp Thing recommended to me by several people. I am going to dive into it eventually. I have also been reading the new Winter Soldier ongoing.

My monthly pulls are:
Uncanny X-Force
Winter Soldier
Animal Man

I pull trades periodically for:
Chew

I am also making my way through:
100 Bullets
The Chronicles of Wormwood

Also try out: Pride of Baghdad

I'm reading Avengers vs X-Men (using this reading order - http://www.squidoo.com/avengers-vs-x-men) and so far i'm enjoying it. I haven't read a lot of X-Men lately so i'm not sure if Cyclops is being written out of character or not, but he's definitely coming off like a mad man.

Despite having not read many of the Captain America books, i'm in love with the character. I used to think he was cheesy, but after reading Civil War (over a year ago) the dude has jumped from not liked to one of my top five heroes. So far i'm liking what i've read of him in AvX. Unlike many I enjoyed the Captain America movie a lot as well and liked how Steve Rogers was portrayed.

I'm at "011 Avengers #25", btw.

They have been attempting to pull of the crossover about 3 years. I initially thought it would be derailed when DC rebooted the universe.

I still think my team worked better as a team(largely do to cable being able to turn into god cable in that situation) but his team was at least as good in individual battles. I think my team was the best team anyone's had in any of the drafts though(and would have been even better had my can trade not been vetoed)

Surprisingly excited for the upcoming Parker-Morales meet and greet.

ONLY if they do it right though. I know they're going to fight due to a misunderstanding (what a twist!), but if they have Morales just in awe of Parker's ability, and Parker commenting on the pure potential of Morales then it COULD work.

I also hope to see two clear perspectives on being Spider-Man.

Now as great as Spider-Man is they have stuggled with having multiple Spideys (Clone Saga) but also done some great, GREAT, GREAT stuff with it (no seriously if you haven't read Spider Island, fucking read it!).

But I may go ahead and find this issue, it's peaked my curiosity.
