Officially dropped Flash and Aquaman from my "reading" (like I have done much of that, Pfft  Roll Eyes).

Now the FLash I dropped as I just couldn't enjoy reading it. No matter how much I tried. I also "dropped" it twice prior, but this time Ihae taken measures to make sure I don't get pulled in again. Told Dave not to bring it over anymore.

Also did the same with Aquaman, but not for the same reason. I just need to kill some of these bi-weekly books and while I have, more than not, enjoyed this title, I just need to save some time so dropping four issues should help my DC reading.

Was going to add Nightwing, another titles I have "dropped" more than once, but flipping through the last two issues I see a really cool looking villain, so I am giving this another go, again.

Hoping to be ripping through DC more over this week-end and while I know dropping two titles doesn't seem like much, it can only help, right?

Depends on how far behind you are.  For example - I have Action Comics in my Wish List and am 9 months behind.  You might think 9 behind isn't that much (for me) BUT that equates to 18 issues!  Even if I could afford to buy them all at once it will take me forever to read them (Unless that was the only thing I read)!

Exactly. That Bi-Weekly shipping is both a blessing and a curse
 Cheesy

EDIT - And not to mention that by the time you finished with those, there could be at least two more issues released, which would mean you were not finished with those.

Officially dropped Flash and Aquaman from my "reading"  ...

And that didn't last long at all.  Angry
Forgot that there is a Batman/Flash crossover event coming soon, with the Watchmen (or at least the smiley face button of the Comedian) shown on the cover. Soooo ... yeah, the title is back on for awhile
 Undecided

Also, I was just told that my boy, and often times guy mistaken for hitting Hero Realm with Russian Spam  Cheesy, Stjepan Sejic is coming on as new artist in the Aquaman rotation. No way I am missing out on that.

So hey, was able to drop two titles for about a week ... okay ... a couple of days

Just a few updated notes, for my top nine comics. Of course the lower titles will drop further when I read Hal, All-Star, New-Super-Man, etc ... so I am just marking the moves of the comics I am up to date with. Will post an easier to read version, with opinions (so, harder to read  Cheesy) when I am totally caught up
 Smiley

JUST NOT FOR ME (but gave a quick peek anyway)

Cyborg
Green Arrow
Harley Quinn
Hellblazer
Supergirl
Teen Titans - May return with art change

WANTED TO LIKE BUT DROPPED at some point -

Batgirl
Batgirl and the Birds of Prey
Blue Beetle
Green Lanterns
Suicide Squad
Justice League
Justice League of America
Titans
Flash
 ... However, I am back on for the Bat crossover, so that could pull me back in.
EDIT - Superwoman - Just found out new creative team comes on with issue #9. Time for me to jump ship with #8

RANKINGS (as of 9/18/2016) (3-24-2017)

#1 - 02) WONDER WOMAN - Still a great book and last issues translation problems were funny
#2 - 06) BATMAN - Still higher than it should be ranked, I think, but Reis and that emotion just killed last issue
#3 - 11) SUPERMAN - Look, this title will rebound, but for now, with that Eradicator story-line, it drops a tad.
#4 - 00) BATWOMAN - Love the look, enjoy the story. Not rated prior
#5 - 05) DEATHSTROKE - Never followed the character much after New Teen Titans, but happy to now.
#6 - 01) DETECTIVE COMICS - Was easily a top 3 title, but last issue shot this to the top. Sorry Diana.
#7 - 00) TRINITY - Good romp starring the big three. Not rated prior
#8 - 07) ACTION COMICS - Its slide is more the books above got better more than this slipped. Still good.
#9 - 12) AQUAMAN - This title is making a turn. Last issue with Superman was really strong. (Had dropped but back on with art change.

Still have to catch up on so can't yet place ...

03) ALL-STAR BATMAN - Yes it has it's problems, but this is so old school fun. I am just enjoying it greatly.
04) HAL AND THE GLC - Another old school fun book, with less problems, that is just hitting for me.
08) SUPER-WOMAN - Man this last issue was not as strong, but hoping for a great rebound.
09) NEW SUPER-MAN - After a great two issue start, this title slides just a tad. Still a worthy read
10) NIGHTWING - The last two issues have turned this book around for me. No Grayson residue now.
13) RED HOOD and the OUTLAWS - Good banter between characters so far, but still early
--) SUPER SONS - Have yet to read
