    • The Green Lantern by Grant Morrison
    • All-new Aquaman by Kelly Sue DeConnick
    • Justice League Dark by James Tynion IV
    • Wonder Twins by Mark Russell
    • The Terrifics by Jeff Lemir

    my list changes but most consistently it's been:

    • Batman and the Outsiders by Bryan Hill - I love all the characters involved, a lot of whom don't get the opportunity to shine due to DC's inability to properly balance and utilize their characters, and I love the action movie feel of it. Bryan Hill, Dexter Soy, and Veronica Gandini are a dream team.
    • Aquaman by Kelly Sue Deconnick - Kelly Sue Deconnick is knocking it out the part, she imbues a softer but sharp, and more nuanced element of emotion to this book that always feel very refreshing. I love the the more laid back Aquaman, how she makes The Call feel more mythical and how she handles the supporting cast; by the end, this could be my favorite Aquaman run ever
    • Red Hood/Outlaws by Scott Lobdell - I have loved Red Hood for a while and Lobdell continues to mature and develope Jason Todd into a hero that isn't just another bat person. he feels dynamic and full, like he has created his own place in the wider DC landscape. I think (for me) Jason has developed more independent of the Bat than Dick Grayson ever has.


    honorable mention: Gene Luen Yang's Terrifics, Dan Abnett's Justice League Odyssey (pity they had to shelf Cyborg and Starfire), Tynion's Batman Run, Adam Glass' Teen Titans, *potentially* Tom Taylor's Suicide Squad

    Does 'currently speaking' mean current comics still being printed or your current thoughts as to all-time best runs?

    Pretty much just Morrison's GL. Maybe Johns on Shazam as well but the damn thing is way too decompressed I kind of lost excitement for it.

    Haven't been keeping up with Lois Lane or Jimmy Olsen after the first couple issues, but will probably get the trades for each.

    DeConnick/Rocha on Aquaman
    Fraction/Lieber on Jimmy Olsen
    Morrison/Sharp on The Green Lantern

    Castellucci's Batgirl has to get an honorable mention. It's shaping up to be something interesting and unique.

    The Green Lantern - I love how every issue is a story, Morrison and Sharp do in one page what takes a whole comic in other runs, plus the way they just let Hal be the super competent character he is suppose to be and not have him doubting himself every issue.

    Hawkman - Venditti managed to simplify the mythos and is giving Hawkman a story as cool as his design deserves.

    Aquaman - Really enjoying waht DeConnick is doping with the characters.
