For the best in comic reviews visit:
WEEKLY COMIC BOOK REVIEW
Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The line right now is so diverse, but I'll give it my best shot...
Runner Up:Aquaman- It's a good book, nothing special, though.
8. Worlds' Finest
7. The Flash
4. Animal Man/Swamp Thing (these are a package deal, you really can't get one without the other)
3. Birds of Prey
2. Earth 2
1. Demon Knights
Pull List: Aquaman, Death of the Family, Ultimate Comics Spider Man, Uncanny Avengers, Secret Service, Locke and Key & I, Vampire
I'll give my Top 10:
1. Earth 2
4. Batman and Robin
6. Swamp Thing
7. The Flash
8. Red Hood and the Outlaws
10. Wonder Woman
Honorable mention: Green Lantern, Suicide Squad, Justice League, Green Lantern Corps
I'd definitely recommend Earth 2. It just started and, while the first issue is a bit disjointed from the second, the story is moving at a good pace and I have a feeling it's only going to keep getting better and better.
Aquaman is really good and perhaps my favorite of the new 52 besides Earth 2. Wonder Woman has surprised me with how much fun I've had reading it. I'm enjoying The Flash, as the story and art are pretty good, but I've been thinking about dropping it since the book doesn't seem to have one coherent direction.
I don't know much about the other titles, but I can say that Teen Titans has ultimately disappointed me. I think the writing style is geared towards tweens who may care more about big explosive action sequences than fun dialogue. The plot around issue 7 or 8 completely went off in some weird direction for a crossover, and I lost track of what was happening and, ultimately, any interest in continuing with the characters. It's really just a Superboy/Red Robin/Wonder Girl book anyway, and none of those characters have much a distinct voice in that book IMO.

Justice League Dark
I, Vampire (GET IT GET IT GET IT! One of the best titles!)
Here's a list of what I tried out, and what I think so far:
Aquaman: I was expecting it to be all humor and action. Was pleasantly surprised by how heartfelt it could be.
Batman and Robin: REALLY liked it. Mr. Nobody is scary, and I'm mad about the Russian Batman dying. Makes me want to read Batman Incorporated, but I hate Morrison's writing.
Batwing: REALLY liked it. Like the idea of him being a cop and the idea of Africa's own superhero team.
Blue Beetle: I like the IDEA of it, but it was OK. What happened to Tony Bedard?
Captain Atom: Cannot say how much I loved the artwork on this book. Best art I've seen in YEARS. I just stared at the pages, which is something I haven't done with a comic in a long while. I LOVE how Cap is done up differently from the rest of the world art-wise. Writing was OK.
Demon Knights: Loved it. I just hope they won't all be anti-heroes. Art is beautiful. Was a bit darker than I like though (baby scene).
Flash: Haven't read yet.
Green Lantern: New Guardians: REALLY enjoyed it. This is the Tony Bedard I love. I'm a big Kyle Raynor fan.
Nightwing: Haven't read yet.
Red Hood and the Outlaws: Haven't read yet.
Swamp Thing: Haven't read yet.
Animal Man: I got the first trade, but it's a future Christmas present, so can't read it yet :(
World's Finest: Didn't care for it very much. This pretty much clinches I'm not a very big fan of Paul Levitz's writing. I was also pretty confused by their plan. Are they going back to their world, or saving Earth 1 from something? I was sure Karen wanted to go back to Earth 2, but this line confused me "I've already lost one world. I can't stand the thought of a second one being blown apart."
So far it will be hard to pick which books to stick with :(
Sorry, repost :(
Read Flash #1 last night. Art was absolutely beautiful, but I felt the writing was pretty generic. Not sure if this one will make my list.
Anyone want to talk me off the ledge? :)
