Superman comics are confusing.  They shouldn’t have tried to combine back stories of Superman II and Superman III. 
Also,  screw yourself for removing Kon-el from Reign of Supermen. 
Batman is repetitive,  but Detective Comics is best comic they are currently publishing. 
Wonder Woman is basically a long way to return to the ending of last pre New 52 storyline.  
Damian Wayne is better written as a supporting character in Nightwing and Superman than main character in Teen Titans. 
Super Sons is cute,  but Damian is kinda OOC.  Still better than Teen Titans. 
Suprise Suprise,  Red Hood and the Outlaws is decently written and beautifully drawn!
Batwoman looks nice.  I have great expectations for the title. 
Superwoman and Supergirl are ok, but not very inspiring. 
Rest of the comics is forgetable. 
Final thought: DC could well drop anything that does not involve batfamily.  I wouldn’t have cried.

I find it fascinating that the Big Two are doing controversial crossover events at the same time. By this point probably every comic book reader has heard about the "Steve Rogers have always been a Hydra sleeper agent and the Axis originally won WWII" controversy of Secret Empire, but DC decided to introduce characters from The Watchmen into their main continuity despite the creator opposing it strongly from the beginning. Fans of neither company can claim moral superiority. (Why is the DC/Marvel rivarly a thing, anyways?) I personally consider the question of whether a story is well written to be of greater importance than whether the story is moral. It's too early to say anything about The Button, but Secret Empire is the most interesting thing to happen to Steve Rogers since the original Civil War over a decade earlier. Even in the worst case scenario the actions of Hydra!Steve can be atributed to the fact that he is not real Steve Rogers, and that the original never returned from dead. This would retcon every idiotic storyline in a decade, and a decade's worth of idiotic storylines is a lot.
Assorted comic book complaints:
-killing characters off to be replaced by "better" versions/legacies makes the new nameholders meaningless. Recent examples: Superman, Lois Lane, Lobo, Iron Man.
-when you insert a popular character everywhere people will start associatting them with crappy crossover events and the character will lose their popularity. Examples: Loki, Batwoman, Ms Marvel, Moon Girl.
