    Default New 52 trade recommendations

    Hello all! I'm thinking of adding a few new series since several of my pull list are being cancelled/losing their creative team, and really only one of the (so far) announced new series interests me (again, so far)

    On top of that, I'm going on a trip and need reading material soon, so I was hopin for some trade recommendations. From my pull list (in my signature) I have every issue of each series, so obviously I don't need any of those, but they should give an idea of the styles I like. Thanks in advance!
    Pull list- Batman, Justice League, Justice League of America, Green Lantern New Guardians, Forever Evil (plus the various minis), Pandora, Green Arrow

    Batwoman. The trades are quick reads, but you won't regret having them. And there're potentially three to pick up right now, as the pre-New 52 "Elegy" is still more or less in continuity and is referenced quite a bit in the ongoing.

    Batman and Robin "Born to Kill" is a great, fairly meaty trade that tells a complete story and should be right up your ally if you're following the main Batman title.

    Justice League. The premier DC super hero team

    Batwing #1-9, a fresh take from DC for once. This is Winick at his best.......10 through 18 are okay its more generic super hero adventures with a bunch of team ups.

    Aquaman- good art a lot of action

    Wonder Woman
    might be good if your into mythology.

    Snyder's Batman run might be worth checking out if you like Scott Snyder. He's good at horror and he brings a lot of horror elements to this Batman run

    Well, since it seems like you can tolerate Geoff Johns' writing (I no longer can), . . . Aquaman would probably be a good fit for you.
    And while you get GL: New Guardians, what about the main Green Lantern book (also by Geoff Johns)?

    Pull list:
    Batgirl, Inhuman, Justice League Beyond 2.0, Letter 44, She-Hulk, SM/WW, Swamp Thing, Ultimate FF (lol, 5 of my 8 titles all written by SOULE)

    Thanks for all suggestions thus far, and for those of you that suggested Born to Kill, I actually have those issues and yes I did love them, so I know you're recommendations are great lol.

    I'm kinda feeling Wonder Woman (I do like mythology), Flash (the art looks wonderful), or Earth 2 (especially since I'm REALLY thinking about pickif it up for the current Dr Fate arc anyway, plus I enjoy alternate takes on characters) so far

    And no I'm actually not reading the main GL title, I just loved all the color corps interactions and that's why unfortunately that's one of the titles I think I'll drop when the creative change comes, since it seems they're going to just focus on Kyle and move away from the team (which they've already done somewhat already)

    I kinda wanted to start moving towards having at least one title per 'family' of books, so what about a Dark line recommendation (if any)
    Pull list- Batman, Justice League, Justice League of America, Green Lantern New Guardians, Forever Evil (plus the various minis), Pandora, Green Arrow
