The Difference?

What is the difference between Rebirth and the New 52? What is is the best place to start reading? I want read origin comics but I don’t know where to start. I definitely want to read Batman and Nightwing storylines.

New 52 is a clean slate. That was the new starting point for continuity. That’s a great place to start reading. Rebirth continues after New52 events but brings back pre-New 52 things fans loved that they disregarded or changed in New 52. Essentially, Rebirth is the current comic continuity. Once you read some New52 and rebirth titles, I suggest going back and reading older story lines.

If you have any more comic reading questions, just ask.

Also forgot to note, if you do want to venture out, google top 5 or 10/must read story lines.

New 52 was a reboot: a new storytelling framework seperate from that which came before.

Rebirth was a relaunch: a new starting point within an existing storytelling framework.

Simple =)


New 52 was all about changing things up to appeal to new readers. Rebirth was all about trying to bring old ones back.
