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

+14

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

+14

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

+5

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 

+0

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

+0

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?
