New Thoughts On The DC 52 In September--Not Interested

There are those DC books coming out this September that aren't necessarily bad, I just have no interest in reading them for some reason or another. Let's look at that big and odd assortment.
All Star Western #1
I didn't read comics about the Wild West before (excluding the Jeff Lemire-drawn Jonah Hex issue), I'm not going to start now.

Batgirl #1
Barbara Gordon is Batgirl again and this might mean she's walking and junk despite an event 23 (or so) years ago most people had come to terms with except for some crazy fans! This is the sound of me not caring!

Batman and Robin #1
Bruce Wayne and son fight crime. That sounds fun, but for some reason I just don't feel very interested in this.

Birds of Prey #1
 An espionage book about lady-spies or something. That could make an interesting book in its own world, but as part of the DC Universe with heroes I know little to nothing about I'm going to not bother.

Blue Beetle #1
Blue Beetle has always been a cool character to lots of folk, be it Ted Kord, Jaime Reyes, or whomever. I just have never really been interested in the character.

Demon Knights #1
It's Paul Cornell, which means I should get this book, but it has that unbearable demon Etrigan who has to rhyme all the time. The couplets get quite old so I'm going to pass for sanity's sake.

Green Lantern Corps #1
I think reading the main Green Latern book is more than enough.

Green Lantern: New Guardians #1
If I don't want to read about the Green Lantern Corps you know I care even less about the Guardians.

I, Vampire #1
I've had enough of Vampires in comics lately with a few exceptions (Dracula: Company of Monsters is fun).

Legion of Superheroes #1
Paul Levitz is a great writer, but I just don't read Legion.

Legion Lost #1
I don't know this writer as much and again, I just don't read Legion.

Men of War #1
Sgt. Rock in the modern day? It could work, but I still don't care.

Nightwing #1
Dick Grayson goes from being Batman back to Nightwing. Kind of regressing there. I like Dick Grayson, but I feel I can safely skip this book. UPDATE: One thing in its favor is that Kyle Higgins is writing it, and he is doing a great job on the new Supreme Power book ever since Howard Chaykin--as one podcast I listened to put it--took the series out back and put two bullets in the back of its head. If Higgins can revive Supreme Power's corpse maybe Nightwing has some hope. I'll check reviews and possibly get the first issue.

Static Shock #1
Loved the T.V. show, didn't get into the comic character.

Superboy #1
The ultimate weapon, blah, blah blah. Sounds lame.

Superman #1
Superman without Grant Morrison = Me not caring that much.

The Flash #1
I like Flashpoint because it is an alternate-universe tale. The fact it has the Flash is of no importance to me because I really have an interest level of nil in the character.

The Fury of Firestorm #1
I didn't care about Firestorm in Brightest Day. Whether this is a hard or soft reboot of the character as folk are debating I really am not concerned with as I won't be reading it.

Perhaps these books are ones you are very excited about, tell me if they were any good as I won't be reading them.
