After the announcement that everything is coming, DCU is starting with events!!!
The Event and many of the tie ins are coming. Starting with
Brightest Day! <-- Maybe the most significant Green Lantern Event of all time! Featuring every hero (basically becoming lanterns. DCU has put 116 comics in the current collection. I haven’t read it but I hear incredible things about it!
Dark Nights Metal!! <-- The perfect read to prep yourself for The DC Unlimited Update! This story will spin off into Justice League: No Justice coming to DCU in May. On top of that, this series is a joy to behold featuring the dark mulitverse and evil versions of Batmen. The effects of Dark Knights metal are being followed up on by every major comic book series!!! An absolute joy to behold!! Every Comic is here but you will have to search for the Evil Batmen individual stories.
Crisis on Infinite Earths <-- The perfect series to read if you are a fan of the Arrowverse. A version of this groundbreaking story is being adapted for CW. Great time to read it! Over 50 issues are here but only 50 issues are in the collection at the time of writing. Should be fixed soon!
Zero Hour: Crisis in Time! <-- Hal Jordan has officially lost it. This series is controversial as its a spiritual successor to Death of Superman but well worth your time! Currently 34 comics are in the list at this time
Invasion! <-- Another CW adapted story about the Dominators coming to invade Earth. This collection is at 35 issues right now.
and Legends! <-- Task Force X’s big introduction! Currently has 27 issues.
The Final Crisis! <-- The aftermath of Darkseid winning. At the moment 29 issues are on this collection
Finally, as far as I can tell, the other big additions is
The Power of Shazam #37-42
Superman/ Shazam: First Thunder #1 (back on DCU after taking a break since January)
Batman/ Huntress: Cry for Blood #1-6
Secret Six #1-6
There are a bunch of smaller additions so I thought we’d play scavenger hunt!!
Adventures of Superman #496 - 505, 516
Most other editions just include the tie-in I challenge you to find them all!
