i never actually red any dc comics in the past,only few batman ones and it got boring very fast.

however lately my interest in the dc universe started to rise after watching the young justice show.

is there a chain of events for the dc comics,i see all those comics issues and my head gets dizzy,every small superhero has hes own 2000 comic isuues.

do i need to read them all to understand whats happening.HELP .i see multiple supermans,4 different robins,and clones and ripoffs of clone of ripoffs of each other. lol .WTF help

With the New 52, the only stuff you NEED to read is the Silver age Green Lantern on. The other stuff is good for new readers. I didn't even read anything modern from DC until that came along. You can read stuff before that, but it would really just be a good read. It won't really help with the current continuity.

BTW, there are actually five Robins.

It ain't that hard. Like TheCannon said, all you have to do is start with the New 52 if you want to collect comics regularly. They rebooted their universe so it's easier for new readers to get in.

The only ones that aren't new-reader friendly are the Green Lantern series, and that's debatable. You can track down the earlier issues, or buy the first TPBs of the series you're interested in and get the rest of them. The TPBs collect from issue 1-6, 1-7 or 1-8, and you can buy the rest of them in your local comic shop.

No, there's still plenty of stories that matter, mainly from Green Lantern and also some from Batman.
