Sooooooo, I've ordered about 5 of these new 52 TPBs already. Batman, Stormwatch, Catwoman, Justice League, and Justice League International. I plan on preordering Detective Comics, but I'm not sure which of these two (Green Lantern or Wonder Woman) to order with it.

I can't do both. Not unless I wait 'till I can put more money on my Amazon account. So, I come to you, comic book peeps. What do you think of these two?

DamagEdit: Also, I wasn't sure where to put this, so I put it here. If a Mod or Admin thinks it would be better to move it elsewhere, feel free.

I would seriously chose something like Dark Knight, Nightwing, Deathstroke, or Flash ahead of those two. Also you could go the route of Uncanny X-Men.

Actually, the first three you named, I plan on getting. They're just coming out later. DC's releasing some every month through November. Flash, I might think about getting. That doesn't come out for awhile too, though.

DamagEdit: Deathstroke- August, Dark Knight and Nightwing- October, and Flash doesn't come out 'till November.

As for the X-Men one, I really haven't read comics for a long time. This new DC relaunch has caught my interest. But maybe I'll check that out. X-Men is my favorite on the Marvel side of things, after all.

Here's a link to the release dates for all of them, that I posted awhile back. Some dates may have changed since then, though.

I would suggest getting Swamp Thing instead of any of those two.

The Green Lantern comics have been excellent I would suggest getting that. Wonder Woman is okay but not worth the money. I didn't care for Swamp Thing personally.

You mean any of the DC 52? You were the one that recommended I get Stormwatch before, if I recall correctly. Not sure if I'd like that one or not. Doesn't seem like my kind of thing. If I did decide to get it, it doesn't come out 'till August, though.

The Green Lantern comics have been excellent I would suggest getting that. Wonder Woman is okay but not worth the money. I didn't care for Swamp Thing personally.

Well, so far, not a single vote has been placed for Wonder Woman. So... Might be going the other way here.

I am curious if the two that voted my joke option think the X-Men one would be a better choice or not. As I said, I do like the X-Men quite a bit.

DamagEdit: It occurs to me, one of those could've been Sirmethos. :P

Whoever is saying the Green Lantern comics suck must be reading different Green Lantern comics then the ones out now. Rob the Green Lantern books are definitely good and you should check them out. Wonder Woman like I said is not worth buying.

As far as X-Men books those comics before AvX had different storylines going on and have alot of books. There is Uncanny X-Men, Wolverine and the X-Men, New Mutants, X-Factor, X-Men, X-Men Legacy, Wolverine and the X-Men Omega, and like one another.

I wouldn't even be able to tell you which X-Men comic to get honestly. Maybe you should just get AvX since that series is actually good and interesting.

Ok... So... This topic seems to have done nothing, but make me think Green Lantern is a better choice than Wonder Woman. Not the greatest choice, according to some, but better than Wonder Woman.

May
ANIMAL MAN VOL. 1: THE HUNT
BATMAN VOL. 1: THE COURT OF OWLS
CATWOMAN VOL. 1: THE GAME

GREEN ARROW VOL. 1: THE MIDAS TOUCH
GREEN LANTERN VOL. 1: SINESTRO
JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL VOL. 1: THE SIGNAL MASTERS
JUSTICE LEAGUE VOL. 1: ORIGIN
STORMWATCH VOL. 1: THE DARK SIDE

WONDER WOMAN VOL. 1: BLOOD


June
BATMAN: DETECTIVE COMICS VOL. 1: FACES OF DEATH
BATWOMAN VOL. 1: HYDROLOGY
FRANKENSTEIN, AGENT OF S.H.A.D.E. VOL. 1: WAR OF THE MONSTERS
LEGION OF SUPERHEROES VOL. 1: HOSTILE WORLD
MISTER TERRIFIC VOL. 1: MIND GAMES
RED LANTERNS VOL. 1: BLOOD AND RAGE
STATIC SHOCK VOL. 1: SUPERCHARGED

These are the ones coming out this month and the next. Any of them a better choice? (Obviously, the ones scratched out, I already ordered.) Batwoman was one I was thinking about too... Hmm... I do have a whole thirty days before that one even comes out, though.

Feel free to post and ignore the poll. That was pretty much useless. *Facepalm*

The Green Lantern and Animal Man books on your list are good.

Well, it's not really my list. I just copied and pasted that from DC, and put lines through the ones I already ordered. I have read most of the Justice League book now, and I find Green Lantern infinitely more interesting than Wonder Woman. Although, the Green Lantern comic stars Sinestro instead of Hal, so... that kind of sucks.

If you ask me, after reading following the New 52 and getting my paws on some older comics, Hal Jordan's a pretty boring character, and does little for his own comics. Sinstero as the GL is pretty interesting, but I haven't been keeping up on that one. I say if you want to read a Green Lantern comic read either New Guardians or Green Lantern Corpse.

*Shrugs* Him and Batman work pretty good together in the Justice League. I sampled the GL comic, and he doesn't seem like the same guy from that comic. I decided to just get Detective Comics, and ordered the complete series of Vandread instead of purchasing another, this time around.

This might surprise you... But I'm not the biggest DC guy around. Having said that, if you're choosing between Green Lantern and Wonder Woman, ALWAYS pick Green Lantern (unless you're choosing which one is hotter). His comics have a much better track record IMO. I've read plenty of GL comics, and Hal is my favorite DC character. Wonder Woman? I can't recall a single memorable storyline (then again, I'm no WW fan).

MARVANOTE: With that said... BUY MARVEL! IZ DA BEST!
