I am VERY SLOWLY crawling my way through the Post-Crisis timeline, reading no more than twelve titles month-by-month (and skipping over things I’ve already read). I’m about to start November 1989.
Current lineup (in order of first issue’s release, which is also the order in which I’m rotating through them):
Detective Comics (Not all that great. I’m really not a fan of Mike W. Barr or Alan Grant’s writing.)
Batman (Pretty decent, but with some stinkers. A Death in the Family is the worst single story I’ve encountered so far, but the rest has been good.)
The New Titans (Varies in quality, but generally past its prime. Every story takes far too long to resolve, and it was never quite the same after George Perez left the first time.)
Wonder Woman (Awesome. George Perez’s writing and art are top-notch.)
The Question (Awesome. Can get a little soapboxy, but if anybody’s going to get up on a soapbox, at least Denny O’Neil does it stylishly.)
Captain Atom (Awesome. Plays with typical superhero tropes but doesn’t seem to be coming from a place of animus like a typical deconstruction, but rather just trying to do something interesting. Just a very clever series.)
Justice League International/America (Really funny. Turning the Justice League into a comedy was a legitimately genius idea.)
Suicide Squad (Pretty good. It doesn’t quite wow me as much as Wonder Woman, The Question, or Captain Atom, but it’s still a cool, well-written series. Also, it appeals to my Oracle-fanboy-ness.)
The Flash (Kind of really bad, honestly. I’m tempted to just drop it and pick it back up when I catch up to where I was in Mark Waid’s run, but it’s sort of an escalation-of-commitment thing at this point. Mike Baron’s run was mediocre but acceptable, but William Messner-Loebs’ run is unimaginably boring.)
Justice League Europe (Maybe actually funnier than Justice League America. I don’t laugh at things I’m reading all that often, but the first issue had me cracking up.)
Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight (I’ve only just started the month when the first issue was published, so I haven’t actually read any of it yet. That said, I see the name “O’Neil” on the cover of the first issue, so I’m optimistic about the quality.)
My last project was going through '90s and '00s Bat-Books, reading all the crossovers and whatever ongoings happened to catch my attention from month to month. This is sort of following up on that, but starting earlier and working on a larger scale. For the series I’m interested in, I’m going to try to read every issue, even the bad runs, whereas during this first project, I would only read a run if I knew the writer was good (though I did stick through Nightwing and Birds of Prey for the whole run of each).
