Which title are you most excited for?
|Can you say no to this face?|
Grant: Definitely Wonder Woman. I know that the character has historically had a hard time resonating with readers, but I think that Princess Diana is one of the best characters in DC's wide stable of heroes. At the very least, she's one of the most underutilized. Her somewhat convoluted backstory doesn't help matters, but I believe the main problem is a lack of top tier talent working on the title. Greg Rucka's and Gail Simone's interpretations of the character are among my all-time favourite comics. With Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang taking on the series, I think we're in for another classic run.
Ken: Batman. Scott Snyder proved he's got the talent to write Batman well, and Greg Capullo doing some big time work in a new style makes me not as bummed to see Dick no longer be wearing the cowl.
Ken: Justice League, it can't not sell the most, otherwise DC did something wrong.
Grant: I feel like DC Universe Presents isn't going to do all that well. The concept of a book to tell random stories from the DCnU sounds good, but starting it off with a five-issue storyarc doesn't make sense to me. I also don't think that title is going to do the series any favours - way too bland.
Ken: I, Vampire, it just isn't in a position to draw readers on top of being really late to the vampire party of the past year or two.
|DC's answer to Spider-Man?|
Grant: I think that Batwing could potentially be a really good book, but it'll depend on which Judd Winick shows up to the writing table. Failing that, I think Static Shock could do some great things.
Grant: Similar to Ryan's suggestion, I wish there was a title that told exclusively done-in-one stories. They could have some sort of over-arcing plot if you really want it to, but I think the world needs more single issue comic books. There's something to be said for a self-contained story that says everything it needs to over the course of one issue.
Ken: A Booster Gold book where Michael still knew everything from the past, and is basically the POV character for longtime DC readers to learn about this new universe.
