I’m a pretty new reader to DC comics and for the most part I’m really enjoying it! I started with Rebirth (and, of course, it’s lead up with Darkseid and New 52 Superman) and I’ve loved it so far! That was until Dark Nights: Metal. It almost turned me off comics completely. As a new reader I felt like I was absolutely lost. Interviews suggested the event would be new reader-friendly but that was not at all true. So, I’m wondering how much of Metal matters to the DCU going forward. I still have many Rebirth issues to go through but I don’t want to waste my time if I’m not going to know what’s going on. Does Metal have a massive impact?
And just a reminder, I’m, like, REALLY new to comic books. I’ve really wanted to get into them because I love DC characters but I’m worried accessibility will become a bigger issue.
