Welcome to the community, @the-bat-psycho! That’s a nice pick :slight_smile:

As we get ready in the next day or so to roll out the newest released comics on DC Universe Unlimited, I’ll just comment that the Other History of the DC Universe does an interesting job of actually making the real history of our world interweave with the decades of DC comics that were published those years, and informing the backstory for the featured characters.

This is no comic book story in the traditional sense, it’s more of a Who’s Who / Wikipedia almost feel, summarizing the major storylines for a particular character being featured. There is no panel to panel flow, and that’s okay because the excellence of John Ridley’s exposition, prose and insights are very very powerful without all that.
