Well, I read trade paperback of Aquaman new 52 Vol. 1, and Dark Knight Returns. I loved Aquaman but I really didn't enjoy dark knight returns whether people say it's good comic or not. But I really like the Batman character and I am thinking about reading Court of Owls (The New 52). I may know about Marvel Comics, but not about DC and Batman. So help.
What's on your mind?
Where should I start reading Flash comics?

Hey! I’m kind of new to the DC fandom and I wanted to try reading the “Nightwing” and “Red Hood and the Outlaws” series, because they’re my favorite heroes. Thing is, I have no idea where to start reading.
I’ve heard that The New 52 and Rebirth are a good starting point, but I’m not sure what the difference is between those two. Is one of them better, or do I miss something important when I start with rebirth?
If you guys could help me out, that’d be great :) Thank you!

I am trying to start reading comics and thought DC would be the perfect place to start. I checked the jump-points/relaunches and thought about starting at DC Rebirth. The only problem is there are no “new origin stories”, if I understood correctly, but I have not enough information about the universe to just start a new story with characters with a full background. I would like to eat your opinions on that.
Hello guys I am (relatively) new to DC comics and wanted a few recommendations. I know a few things because my brother is obsessed with DC and Marvel (especially The Flash). I have read a few of the comics he bought (The Flash: Out of Time, The Flash: Savage World and Flashpoint) and even bought one for myself (The Killing Joke). I really liked all three of them. I watched the whole DCEU with him (except ZSJL, but I watched about the last 30 minutes of it when he was watching it). I also watched the first 2 seasons of Young Justice after he recommended it to me and I loved it.
My favourite characters are The Flash (Jay Garrick/ Barry Allen/ Wally West/ Bart Allen), Kid Flash (Wallace West), Red Hood (Jason Todd), Impulse (Bart Allen) The Joker, Two-Face, The Penguin, Captain Cold (Leonard Snart), Heatwave (Mick Rory), Reverse-Flash (Eobard Thawne) a few recommendations for them would be really cool! I would also want recommendations for characters that arent my favs because I rarely know about them (like Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Batman Superman, The Justice League, The Teen Titans/ Titans, Shazam etc. etc.). I am looking forward to interact with all of you on here and maybe turn into an comic lover.
So I've been reading a lot of comics lately, I got Tom King's run on Batman, as well as Dick Grayson's adventures as Batman. I got Francis Manapul's Flash, and Benjamin Percy's Green Arrow. I've also wanted to try Snyder's Batman, but the comics are out of order. According to these preferences, are there any recommendations you have?
In Before Watchmen: Doctor Manhattan, Jon attempts to look back before his conception as Manhattan and creates an alternate timeline where he never becomes Doctor Manhattan and the world ends. The end of the comic sees Jon in a new timeline, the DC timeline, as I like to call it, the world of Before Watchmen, the original Watchmen, and Doomsday Clock. In this case, shouldn't we have pages for both the original Watchmen timeline before Jon looked back, and the alternate timeline he created by accident? I think yes. As for names, "Watchmen: Manhattan Timeline" for the accidental alternate timeline, and "Watchmen: Original Timeline" for the original timeline.
Can we make a disambig page for the President of the United States? I feel like that'd be for the best, since it's kinda hard to find one president. Presidents who already have their own long diambigs could have the "other versions" subheader. Who agrees?
We've been treating Rorschach by Tom King as though it's set in the universe of the Watchmen comics (ie Watchmen, Before Watchmen, Doomsday Clock). But there are a few key details that prove this incorrect, and that it is, in fact, set in canon with HBO's Watchmen universe (Watchmen, HBO's Watchmen, Peteypedia). So here's... that. Like, the details:
The first issue mentions how popular of an identity Rorschach is, even after Kovacs' death years earlier. Not only that, but there's no mention of anyone else (ie, Reggie Long) taking up the mantle. And keep in mind, that was in 1992, and this is 2020. It also points out that it's still popular "even after Oklahoma". Seventh Kavalry, anyone?
The second issue shows Alma Thompson reference the fact that the US winning the Vietnam War made Vietnam a state. I'm pretty sure that's exclusive to Damon Lindelof's work, no?
At DC FanDome, Tom King said "nothing contradicts the show" in the comic, implying that's the world it's set in.
This Tweet from Tom King, the writer of Rorschach, from just a few months ago. Honestly, I should have just led with this:
I reccommend we put the info from Tom King's Rorschach under Watchmen (TV Series) instead of just "Watchmen". It's clearly the correct canon.
My friend wants to get back into comics. He stopped when the New 52 began. What comics should he read to get an understanding of what is going on in the DC universe currently. Also if you recommend a cheap reading option(like cheaper books or online comics) that would be great! Thanks!
For the DCAU characters infoboxes, shouldn't we put the images from their future? I mean, we know it's the definite future, not a possible one, we know that what they'll look like, and it's chronologically most recent.
So I'm reading through Heroes in Crisis right now and got really interested in the characters who died there (especially Hot Spot). On The Wiki Page for hot spot I found that he is/was a Teen Titan. So can anyone recommend me some good stuff for Booster Gold/ Arsenal/ Blue Jay (and especially Hot Spot)
Have any of you got any comic recommendations? Any exciting or interesting Comics? Or ‘worth the read’ ones?
Hey, Imma HUGE DC Comics fan, and Even though, I only Read One Animal Man Comic, Which was Animal Man: Animal vs. Man. That's why I wanted to know if there are any Modern or Silver Age Animal Man Readings if I could try and pick up. Thanks in Advance! 😁
