Honestly my only gripe about dark and odyssey is that they are over too fast! But yea metal was great I don’t get why some people disliked it but I had to have more lol. No justice was a really good segway into odyssey and dark. I really like tempus and am glad he is in flash forward (another book I’d highly recommend)
I hear ya’. My friend almost completely talked me out of ever reading it. He’s huge Joker fan too, huge. He has like 200 figs & statues all Joker. Plus a ton of Joker collectibles. Joker-mobile, light up neon Joker face that changes colors etc. I was hesitant going in b/c he didn’t like it. I loved it almost instantly. Just reread it b/c I got into The Silencer & I needed a refresher. Liked it even more 2nd time. Actually, Silencer started it, but I also wanted to read Damage, Brimstone, The Terrifics, & The New Challengers. Also gonna do The Unexpected, Immortal Men, & Sideways. I’ve read what they have on here for Damage, Brimstone, & New Challengers, only read Terrifics when there’s a complete arc. Terrifics got me into Tom Strong… Read all of that after @Dogwelder9 suggested it. I found a reading order that included Tommorow Stories, Top 10, Terra Obscura etc. They didn’t have Smax, Promethea or Greyshirt but it still worked out fine. I ended up loving all of them.
Lol funny coincidence I recently finished sideways and loved it! Really underrated book so I’d recommend you read that asap lol! I haven’t read any of the other new age of heroes but I want to. What book would you recommend from that line? Eventually I’ll read them all bc metal was so good. It’s my favorite event by far
Why did he not like it? I kno joker wasn’t in it much but I thought he played a cool role. And damn 200 statues that’s crazy lol
I really like The Silencer & Terrifics. I’ll get on Sideways, it was on my list. Idk why he didn’t like it. We have a mutual friend, thru a childhood friend, who claims he works for DC & has some of his own independent comics. It’s a mystery. He can definitely draw & we’ve spotted him at cons selling pics etc. it’s basically a mystery. Somethings check out & some don’t. Anyways, he sent him a ton of comics b4 DC site was up thru his phone. When site came up, he bought it for me for my bday (my Joker friend). I told him he should check out some of the comics on there. He asked me what ones I’d been reading on it. I said, at that time, It was like all the major Batman ones; war of jokes & riddles. Black Mirror, Fugitive, No mans land, Bruce Wayne murderer etc. & he said yep those are all great. Then I said I’m about to read Metal & he said I didn’t like that one at all. He said our friends, friend sent him those when they came out & he wasn’t down with it. So I read it like 2days later & I said man I loved Metal. I asked same thing “ what didn’t u like.” He said he wasn’t sure, it just wasn’t for him. So idk? I bet if he read it on tv instead of phone he would like it.
Great question, @dago-mage! I’m really looking forward to completing the Deathstroke Rebirth series! The DCU library is up to Issue #38/50 and I understand that this will complete Slade Wilson’s story arc as a character. I’m eager to find out how it ends.
Also, The White Knight series is epic. I highly recommend it.
Harleen for sure. Alredy preorder the complete collection from amazon it arrieve around february 13.
Thanks @KeyFamily. It’s actually helping a ton b/c I haven’t read a single one out of all these suggestions, & I’ve never had a bad suggestion on this site yet. @dogwelder9 suggested Tom Strong on what are u reading post b/c I said last thing I’d read was Terrifics Meet Tom Strong arc. I loved it & the tie ins that were in the reading order I chose for it. Absolutely can’t wait to read White Knight. Some on here, like Odyssey etc. that @SouthPark suggested I’m for sure gonna read as soon as there’s a decent amount so I can remember what’s going on in em’. Looks like I gotta check out a bunch more now, Harleen etc. Can’t wait.
Thanks for the recommendation I’ll read terrifics and silencer next lol. I love this app bc it’s so easy to read what people recommend! It sounds like we have pretty similar tastes so I trust your opinion
I really wanna read the deathstroke run it’s definitely on the list! Wife bought me a few trades that aren’t on here so I’ll be busy with those for a bit
I kinda feel like it’s such a big story reading it in one sitting may not be ideal. I read it over time so it had time to sit with me lol. Plus I really like dark stories and scifi
I completely agree. I read it in one shot under the opinion that it was bad. I still loved it, but when I reread it & took my time it was so much better. I’m excited for sideways b/c we do have similar tastes. I already had it all written out arc by arc in my notebook. I’d be lost if I didn’t start keeping notebooks & checking em off as I go. I have a whole system. If I don’t finish one I circle it. I write em down by the years there listed as on here so I don’t get confused. Then I put a huge check mark after I finish em & rate em. It’s helped a ton on ones I’m not sure if I’ve read , or if I blank on the name, even for the what are u reading thread. I’ll forget sometimes what I’ve recently read. Just go to my notebook & it’s right there. I think I’m gonna start dating them too so I know how long it’s been since I’ve read em’.
Yea I tend to notice stuff I missed the second reading. I like your idea of writing it down that would help me keep up lol. Might have to use that one!
It’s saved me so many times. I started it when they didn’t have the crossovers laid out. I’d look em up & write each issue out, check em as I went. So the next time I could just go right to it & have em ready. Some were so long I just took pics of the pages on my phone & wrote out the #’s. Then checked each number off as I went.
Harleen, Bladerunner 2019, DCSHG giant and trades, Supergirl/Batwoman Giants, Crisis Giants
