Hello DC Community, I wanted to make a post about helping me and the community for “Pointers” for reading comics, collectibles all that fun stuff. I am fairly new to this community and the DC universe in general. So this is a chat to help out people were to start a series of events in a comic or starting collecting collectibles.
So I love the DC lore I am starting reading the whole time line of the series I am starting with New Gods, Then Jack Kirby Fourth World, and then starting the crisis situation. That’s what I am starting so far, I am ready for any pointers. So just give out some help to people to start getting into Go DC Community!
Here is what I wish I was told and did from the start
Ignore all the lists of must reads and greatest X stories ever. It resulted in me reading a bunch of bad comcis that were purely shock value. Just find a character and writer you like and read their stuff until it naturally leads you to enjoying some other works you find.
If a series is not your cup of tea then ditch it and try something else. Do not pour days or weeks into it hoping it will stop being bad.
If you really like a non A lister then check his/her appearences list on DC Database. That can really help you to find more stuff with them, especially crossovers like when I found the Stargirl/Impulse crossover.
Do not just check the creator list for the writer, but also the penciler (will become much more important when you are loving writers who unlike Kirby are not also a master artist).
