    November 12, 2018 9:11 am I had to figure out my login again so I could weigh in on the Crises question! I own them all and most of the tie-ins and I think that the Infinite Crisis is the best for someone kind of new to DC. It's a great exploration of the personalities of the trinity (Clark, Diana, Bruce). It picked up threads from the Crisis on Infinite Earths, so it's helpful to know that for backstories of Alexander Luthor, Superboy Prime etc but not essential It also led right into 52 which is probably the best DC event. Final Crisis had tons of interesting concepts and you should definitely track down some of the tie-ins if you read this event. There's a Japanese superhero team that's really fun and a powerful one-shot about Martian Manhunter. So if you only read one, make it Infinite Crisis.
    June 20, 2013 11:26 am I read some of Mosaic when I was a kid, really interesting and different as far as GL stories go.
    June 7, 2013 4:27 pm isn't Krypto in the phantom zone right now?
    May 28, 2013 8:45 pm definitely has to be on this list, it's like the cantina bar of the DC Magic users. Plus you can enter the bar from portals in several cities and Nightmaster is the barkeep!
    April 10, 2013 2:32 pm One of my friends saw me reading Earth 2 a few months back and he launches into the ethics of a comic company including homosexuality and gay marriage in their comics. I told him that stories and characters shouldn't be so far removed from our world that they weren't relatable. I like when these "inappropriate" books spark respectful discussions, but I'm guessing that doesn't usually happen with strangers.
    April 5, 2013 11:07 am Gosh, I've been managing to keep most of the fold-out covers a surprise. Guess they didn't consider it a spoiler?
    March 31, 2013 11:16 pm Yeah, I really miss Plastic Man
    March 29, 2013 11:33 am hmmm I wonder how they plan to quietly give us the superhero epic that all future comics will be measured by. Is proofreading too much to ask? At least this typo didn't happen in a comic...
    March 19, 2013 3:42 pm If she's meant to represent modern women, maybe a woman should write her...
    March 15, 2013 11:15 am I'm very surprised that Batgirl didn't make the best covers! It was the most emotional of the Requiem covers. As the tears stream, her entire costume takes on a fluid look.
