Where we're at with the whole DC Comics thing

Remember when I ranked all 52 #1s from DC? Well let's do something like that and check in on what I'm actually still reading.

BUYING:

Batman
Demon Knights
Dial H

BUYING BUT THINKING ABOUT GOING OUT FOR MILK AND NOT COMING BACK:

Animal Man
Frankenstein: Agent of SHADE (let's see what Kindt brings to it)
Swamp Thing

DROPPED:

Blackhawks
Justice League Dark
Stormwatch

 CANCELLED:

Static Shock (I would have dropped it anyway; what a massive dive from a promising debut issue. Bernardin's two issues were an improvement, though)

WAITING FOR THE COLLECTION:

Action Comics (I have gone to hardcovers-only for Grant Morrison comics)
All Star Western
Batman Incorporated
Wonder Woman

SHOULD GET THE COLLECTION BUT WILL PROBABLY CONVENIENTLY FORGET TO DO SO:

Batman and Robin
Batwoman
Birds of Prey
Flash

STRONGLY THINKING ABOUT PICKING UP:

Green Arrow (Ann Nocenti edition)


"WAVE THREE" TITLES I INTEND TO BUY:

...


And just to be fair:

MARVEL TITLES I AM BUYING:

Daredevil (ordered the first trade)
PunisherMAX (one trade left to go)

THE BEST COMIC:

Atomic Robo

Atomic Robo is the best comic out there? Why? (Not very familiar with the series, so this is an honest question).

It is clever, funny, thrilling, and most of all, fun.

Also, I've managed to get two different blurbs in various Robo comics. So there you go.
