    With DC's constant universe shifting, it's just a giant mindfuck. It cockblocks anyone who develops a sudden interest for comics (especially in summer blockbuster season)

    I started reading DC comics in the middle of Infinite Crisis and I'm pretty sure I know more about them than most people here.

    You're just retarded.

    I can second this. JLU got me into buying "mainstream" comics and I started on IC. A little reading comics, a little forums, a little wikipedia and it's all good.

    Scans_daily is also useful, because some really interesting shit often gets brought up there.

    There are some pretty stupid people on scans daily though.

    But yeah, it's not that hard to get into DC. Really the biggest hurdle right now is there isn't a whole lot of depth to the line, they just aren't putting out that many high quality books.

    And even that probably makes it easier, since that means there's less you need to pay attention to.

    I'm glad Final Crisis will be just a miniseries, instead of a miniseries and 300 tie-in issues that will never be published in TPB.

    Well, a mini series with a couple of other mini series, and about 5 one shots.

    Nope, theres the Rogue Revenge series by Johns, The Legion of Three Worlds by Johns again, Revelations by Rucka, and one shots by Johns, Tomasi, Morrison and Rucka (I think).

    The one shots are
    • Final Crisis: Rage of the Red Lanterns, Johns
    • Final Crisis: Requiem, Tomasi
    • Final Crisis: Resist ???
    • Final Crisis: Submit ???
    • Final Crisis: Superman Beyond Morrison

    Don't read comments and don't read anything tagged "NSFW" and scans_daily is a really cool resource. There's no other place on the internet, as far as I know, where people just share such a variety of comics from all different publishers and time periods.

    My point exactly.

    It's worth the occasional eyeful of hard cocks when I forget how bad NSFW posts are.

    how is batman keeping up with them

    Can I complain that there are just way to many "muscles" on all those characters? Because my god. That video was pretty sweet though I'll probably pick up that $0.50 1 shot.

    Yeah, the problem with the Flash comics right now isn't the character, bitches love Wally, it's just the rubbish writing.

    So, DC Universe #0

    What?
    The narrator was a Flash... probably Barry, but who knows for sure, right? I am keen to know exactly what went on in the Lightening Saga with the LoSH. Also, since we have too many Flashes, will Wally have to wear the kid flash uniform? :p

    But... the burning, falling figure looked like Darkseid, a not-as-dead-as-we-thought Darkseid.

    The Spectre has been thinking too small? Fair enough... but wasn't one-at-a-time vengeance what the Spectre was always about?

    Amazons, meet the... Manazons? The 300 Spartans? The... oh I have no fucking clue. Just so long as there isn't a deadly bee-weapon this time, pretty please?

    I thought most of the Rogues were still on the alien planet in Salvation Run, no? I guess they get off sooner rather than later... I should read that.

    Loved the black-hand rainbow-lantern spread.

    How about Bart? The guy they killed for no reason whatsoever?

    When I was a kid, I knew who Barry Allen was but I can't recall ever being interested in him. When I started to read comics (circa 1987 when I was 5), Wally was the Flash. Up until know, that's who the Flash has been for me, so I can't say I'm excited. I guess it's the new Kyle/Hal wars for the new generation but in reverse?

    I like the idea of the Amazons going to war with the Spartans...

    I wonder if they'll be written in the style of Frank Miller's 300?

    It's not a terrible idea and I have faith in Simone.

    I just hated that they were drawn exactly like the 300 dudes.

    Like I said, that might be intentional. Can you think of a greater hyper-masculine menace for the premier female superhero to face than the dudes from 300, especially if the writing style hearkens back to Frank Miller's work?

    Gail's always complained about how comics is sort of a boys' club too, so this could be a way to confront that displeasure as well by channeling and defeating the specter of comics' foremost faux-macho force, Frank Miller.

    Well thats why I dont think pitting her against Spartans is a bad idea.
