If u could force someone to read 1-2comics, that u don’t see much hype about. What would the 1 or 2 be? Onsite comics only please. I’m hoping to find a few I haven’t read & maybe help others looking to do the same. If I haven’t read your suggestions yet. I will. Nobody’s under any obligation to do anything. Just hoping to catch a few I’ve never read.
GL (2011) issue 20. Geoff Johns last GL book. It’s a readers digest condensed version of everything in Johns GL era.
I don’t know how may people have read Grayson, but in my opinion it’s extremely underrated. I love that book. To me it was one of the highlights of the New 52.
I’m on that GL @DeSade-acolyte & I’ve only read the crossover portions of Grayson @joelc73.5776. I will read it all. I loved the parts I read. I love his partner that always fights with him, yet their both there for each other when chips are down. Can’t wait for the GL @DeSade-acolyte. I don’t think I’ve read that b4?
Camelot 3000 #1 by Mike Barr and Brian Bolland. Then maybe they’ll have the good sense to read the rest of it.
I really enjoyed New Order! Loved the twist that moved the story along
One of my faves!!!
I couldn’t believe when I read it I’d never even heard of it b4. Excellent read.
If you’re looking for small runs, GLC edge of oblivion and GLC Lost Army. Filled the gap between new 52 and Rebirth. I think six issues a piece and didn’t sell well I believe but fill in gaps I think necessary for going into Hal Jordan and GLC.
Loved em. I’ll try to stay out so this can be for everyone. I will read everything that I haven’t read yet, that’s listed tho.
Give me a second, I got to find some
No problem. I just got excited b/c I’d never seen those on here & thought maybe I missed em lol.
Joelle Jone’s I’m caught up on. Ambush Bug is now on my to do list, thanks.
Of the stuff listed that I’ve read, I’ll definitely second Nightwing: The New Order. It’s really rare we get Elseworld stories for characters who aren’t Batman or Superman, and it works really well.
Hmm…what’s a good one…okay, how about this, Batman: The Dark Prince Charming, written and drawn by Enrico Marini. He’s a prolific European artist who was given carte blance to do his own story with the Batman mythos and he does some really cool stuff while keeping to the core of what makes these characters great. I really enjoy his takes on Batman, Catwoman, Joker and Harley Quinn.
Any video game fans might enjoy this one:
Arkham Knight Genesis
I was hoping my favorite Shazam story was on here but it isn’t.
AKG will be read. I promise now that I’ll stay out unless directly summoned for a question etc. this is already great!!! Got some good reading ahead of me, can’t wait to get to all on here from now til it ends.
OK, I’ve got a couple for you:
- The Kents. Only the first two parts have been digitized, so you’d have to track down the third and final part on your own. But if you like historical fiction (and even if you don’t!), this one’s really good. Tells the story of the Kent family (yep, Clark’s ancestors) in Kansas before, during, and after the Civil War. A great story, and really well-drawn and compelling characters, particularly the two leads, brothers Nathaniel and Jeb Kent. There are also cameos and supporting roles from actual historical figures, which, despite how that may sound, all fit in to the story very well. Really good stuff and I wish more people knew about it.
- Elseworld’s Finest. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anybody mention this two-issue series once, ever, anywhere. So, it may have fallen through the cracks. But I enjoyed it a lot. Simply put: It’s “Indiana Jones” starring Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne. If that sounds good to you, you’ll like this one:
- Batman: Gotham Noir. Another Elseworlds. Despite the title, it stars Jim Gordon, though Batman does appear, of course. If you like film noir, this is like reading a long-lost noir movie that happens to star the Batman cast of characters. The story is propulsive and the tone is spot-on. DC should turn this into an actual animated movie.
- The Brave and The Bold #197. I will take any opportunity I can get to hype up this issue. The best single issue of a comic I’ve read yet. A fantastic, emotionally charged story of the Earth-Two Batman and Catwoman, as they battle Scarecrow, deal with their personal histories, and face down their own fears and demons, ultimately making a fateful decision that will change both of their lives forever. Excellent characterization, art, story, and dialogue: everything that makes comics great. And there are two panels in particular that I will never forget. Highly recommended.
