This week I’m working on

[New to DCU] Book Club Week 12
[New to DCU] Flash War Review
[New to DCU] How to get into Batman Rebirth (Phase 1 and 2)

And New series (Summary of) which will summarize the events of various Superhero Families. Below will then be the reading order.
[New to DCU] Summary of: Aquaman Phase 1 or Superman Phase 1

Thank you!!!


Finally more people can experience Justice League Dark! It’s so good! Thanks for making this list!




So I’ll be continue to read Flash and Detective and I’ll try to fit in Action this week too.


I’m glad to hear that. Action is the better of the Superman titles BY FAR. Detective Comics: On the Outside is very much a #0 story about building up for Batman and the Outsides and Flash is the epilogue of Flash War.

Batgirl #25 was also released.


Been waiting for JLD! And I can finally pick back up on Wonder Woman (I dropped being current at issue 50).

Here are the New to DCU series I’ll be continuing…

  • Detective Comics #985
  • Flash #51
  • House of Secrets #105

@bullcan for whatever reason I had it written down that it was already out. One of the disadvantages to writing this BEFORE the comics come to DCU is release dates can subtly move around. Doomsday Clock #5 was delayed ON DCU by 3 weeks.

Forgive me for nitpicking a bit, but it’s Superman’s Girl Friend, not Girlfriend. Are you trying to scandalize the 1959 audience with the implication that they’re more than just friends?! What next: Lois Lane eating a bowl of Kellogg’s cereal with Clark Kent in the morning like some kind of floozy?
