It really comes down to what your preference is. DC has literally something for everyone and come January, they will have more variety as well. I will always push Wonder Woman as she is my favorite. If you want socially relevant stories, try Green Lantern "Hate Crime v issue 154-155 is an excellent story. Of course there is also the Speedy is a junkie story from Green Lantern/Green Arrow #85. If you want to revisit WWII, JSA might be for you (of course Wonder Woman revisited the 40s era in the 70s to coincide with the TV series as well). If you want horror, Elvira is new to the service, but there are also Halloween specials with a variety of characters in different stories that might be what you are looking for as it introduces some very well known characters and some less known as well. If you love the 80s toys, check out the Masters of the Universe titles. Hope this helps, but without knowing your specific interest it’s hard to pin down an exact start.
