Most excited for Earth 2

I'll probably give Earth 2 a shot, and at least check out Dial H (maybe the John Byrne steal. lol). Have already dropped a couple of the New 52 titles, and one I picked up was cancelled, so have a bit of room in the budget for another series.

Definitely Earth 2! In fact, I'd pick up WF if it were NOT set on Earth 1! I like the idea of a new playground, without the restrictions entailed in a shared universe.
And shouldn't 'Dial H' enter the 21st century and be at least 'Text H' by now?
