52 new comics have come and gone! Some good, some not so much. How many are staying put on your pull list?

As I have read them all, I thought I would share the books I am keeping, and which I am passing on.

Here we go!

Definite Adds:

Action Comics, Aquaman, Batgirl, Batwoman, Blue Beetle, Detective Comics, Green Lantern Corps, The Flash, Justice League Dark, Stormwatch, Superboy, Supergirl, Teen Titans, Wonder Woman


Warrants the purchase of a second issue (meaning if #2 tanks, they are off the list):

All-Star Western, Animal Man, Batman, Batwing, Captain Atom, Catwoman, Frankenstein, Mister Terrific, OMAC, Red Hood and the Outlaws, Resurrection Man, Suicide Squad, Swamp Thing, Voodoo


Habit buys (meaning the first issue really wasn't good, but the characters and/or creative teams necessitate a must buy - in addition, will be off pull list if things do not improve in the first four issues):

Justice League, Green Lantern, Green Lantern: New Guardians, Red Lanterns, Superman


Neither here nor there (not on pull list/not my cup of tea):

Batman and Robin, Batman: The Dark Knight, Deathstroke, Static Shock, Grifter, Nightwing 


Heck no:

Birds Of Prey, Blackhawks, Demon Knights, DCU Presents, Firestorm, Green Arrow, Hawk and Dove, Hawkman, I Vampire, Justice League International, Legion Lost, Legion Of Superheroes, Men Of War


Total number of DC New 52 on pull list for October: 33

Which comes to about a 64% success rate for DC's New 52 when it comes to the month of September for me.

Before the DC Relaunch, I was just picking up the GL titles and occassional Superman issues, so I would have to call this a success.

So, what's on your pull list?
