I just started reading batgirl year one because of how it showed up on the main screen as user DC89’a picks. I just was bored and was going to skim through it because I like Chuck Dixon’s work and realized Marcos Martin was the artist on the series and I really enjoyed his work on Spider-Man. After skimming through a few pages I started actually enjoying it and realizing how good of a story it was. I just want to give a shout out to user DC89 because I probably wouldn’t have thought to check this series out without the recommendation. I really think the monthly user picks can be a great way for readers to find stories they wouldn’t have thought to read originally.
When it’s your turn for being a DC member of the month, can’t wait to see what books you’d recommend to read.
Thank you sooo much @fishin4bass.66054! Very glad that you’re enjoying BG Year One. It’s one of my absolute faves OAT. Big shout out to the amazing @Jitsu, @Alec.Holland, and the super fantastic mods crew for putting together the DCUI Member of the Month thread as well! Yay!
If I ever get to pick I will try to pick the stories that aren’t the ones everyone knows about, like the ones you see on everyone’s top 10 list. I want to give people new stories they’ve never read before. Honestly I’ve always had a problem of being able to take all the comics I’ve read and been able to put them into a top list.
I made a quick list, maybe not all of my favorites but here’s 12 great stories/events/series I recommend that’s more obscure
- Batman legends of the dark knight
- 52 (event)
- Streets of gotham
- Hal Jordan and green lantern corps
- Flex Mentallo
- Superman triangle years
- Batgirl Brian q Miller
- Seven soliders of victory
- Justice league new 52
- Brightest day (entire event)
I also wanted to add “green lantern edge of oblivion” by Tom Taylor. Maybe not the best series but since Guy Gardner is my favorite dc character it has a scene in issue 4 I think that’s one of the best Guy Gardner scenes.
I also was thinking of adding justice league international, since I’m such a big Guy Gardner fan. And no mans land which is my favorite Batman event.

Batgirl: Year One and @SecretSanta89 are the coolest of The Cool™!
One is the best Barbara Gordon origin story ever and is a major highlight among Year One-branded tales.
The other is the smile-emitting, chuckle-inducing, awesome of awesome that makes one the happy and glad to be a part of the wonderful that is the DCUI community.
ends his Stargirl impression
Rock on, Batgirl: Year One and DC89!
This is one of my favorite stories
It is my pick for the best Batgirl/ Barbara Gordon story of them all.
