Post-Crisis without a doubt, period, point, blank.

It depends on the characters. Jason Todd, Roy Harper, Katana, Cyborg, and Aquaman are characters whom I prefer n52/rebirth era's, for example. PC Shazam is someone I much preferred over N52/Rebirth. PC Green Arrow I liked more than n52.

Creeper, Blue Devil, and Captain Atom are examples of radically different n52 and are more in line with their PC versions again in Rebirth and that is much better.

Many characters I'm ambivalent toward which version.

They were both flawed in the exact same ways.

Generally Post-Crisis but there are a couple of things I liked from the new 52.

New 52 had some great character designs. Storywise, I personally liked Post-Crisis.

I’m a sucker for aesthetics and it forms a large part of my experience when reading comics... I gotta go with New 52

Well PC is much much bigger so overall it is better. And New52 has lots and lots of failures. That's why it got partialy rebooted in 2016 (only 5 years after).

It depends on the characters, I actually prefered early N52 flash and Batman is basically the same. N52 supes grew on me but I didn't like N52 Shazam.

I find it ironic that DCEU Shazam turned out more likeable than the comics it was based on.

New 52 in a lot of ways, but honestly it is all circumstantial. Some stuff was better N52, some stuff was better PC

You're a bit off, a lot of stuff in PC was better, a few New52 stuff were better.

Well about Flash what PC stories have you read ? Because, without being a fan, Mark Waid's run out-stomps the New52 run by a million miles.

About Shazam! what is the "comics it was based on" for you ? Because Shazam! is a pre-PC hero. He was mostly no there in the PC era.

Generally speaking, the Post-Crisis/Pre-Flashpoint universe is well versed in it's characterization, more over than it's rebooted self. Though which of the two is better can be based off of others interpretations.
