I'm a lifetime Marvel comic reader but have really grown frustrated with them the last few years over $3.99 pricing and the utter crappiness that the X-men franchise has been delivering. I dabbled in Flash and Green Lantern books starting about ten years ago and have been reading all those books the last few years. I read JLA when Morrison wrote it but dropped it when he left. Beyond that I only know DC event books. I decided to try some of the new 52 books and its hit or miss for me. Animal Man was fantastic while JLI was crap.
