Worth it to read DC One Million?

#1 Posted by GaMeBoY439 (8 posts) - - Show Bio

Hey Guys, I'm fairly new to comics and I'm doing a catch-up of major DC crises and events. I started with Crisis on Infinite Earths and now I'm almost done with Zero Hour. I was wondering if it's worth it to include One Million in this? After ZH, I was gonna do Final Night, Identity Crisis, Infinite Crisis, and Final Crisis (with some others like Blackest Night, Flashopint, etc.), but I noticed One Million seems pretty interesting. Comixology has all the issues, I think, for about $2 each. It seemed to be about 40 issues with all the tie in issue 1000000's, so it'd be around $80. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance for any and all input!

It's not necessary to read as far as understanding the DCU goes, but I think it's worth checking out. It's a very fun read, and the 1,000,000 counterparts to the (then present) JLA are pretty cool to see.

Well considering it is a "possible future" event that DC had going on nearly 14 years ago now, it really isn't necessary to read in order to get what's going on in the current DCU reality. It should be more of a fan errand anyway. I know myself that finding the back issues and tie-ins is a project, so if you can get them all the more power to you!  In all fairness though I see individual issues for that event in dollar bins of comic stores all the time, seriously.
