The Big Stuff This Week
Justice League #2 For those curious almost every issue of Justice League is important. This issue alone will change 2 different Superhero mythologies forever. Think about the time the Yellow Lantern Corps was announced. Think massive stuff which is changing DC Comics forever.
Doomsday Clock is finally here.Last issue we got development on Rorsarch II. Now it’s time to return to the plot!!
Batman #49 The Wedding and Catwoman #1 are 2 weeks away and I couldn’t be more excited. Of course the Joker needs a say first! After Batman was taken down, can Catwoman save him?
- Starting Points
Justice League #2 Okay I’m cheating. Start with #1 and then read #2 You want to read this series!
Batman #49 I’m cheating again. Start with #48 and then move forward. Best entrance point without starting at Vol 5?
Honestly There’s not a good starting point today…
Damage: Out of Control
Green Lanterns: Ghost of the Past
Green Lanterns #44-49
Summer of Events
The book club is actually getting renamed to New to DCU Book Club to reflect it’s purpose better.
Justice League #2 ← This issue breaks the mythologies of major franchises.
Man of Steel #4 ← This issue catches up with Action Comics #1000
Batman #49 ←- This issue ends the Joker story
Batman Prelude to the Wedding: Red Hood vs. Anarky #1 ← all of these have been reviewed really well DESPITE being cash grabs. It’s a weird series of one shots…
Shout out to everyone writing ongoing as always. The Fan creation side has become more and more busy as everyone is developing cool series. It’s a bummer I can’t read all of them.
Also I wrote an exclusive DCU article about why Josh Williamson left Justice League Odyssey. I don’t think it’s ever been reported before which is really cool!!
Thanks as always
