Welcome to Comicvine, fellow fans and enthusiasts of comics, graphic novels, fiction and stories.
Its great to see so many of you coming across the site, I hope you are all enjoying what the website has to offer, especially great to see artists, metal heads, Doctor Strange fans, and Canadians! I too am a fan of all those things, heh heh. Though yeah nice to have you all here.
To the user inquiring about Dark Reign reading order, I do not think that thats necessary a chronological reading order, however the nature of the Dark Reign arc is that… well it was more of an era that influence multiple comics plots rather than an event per say, thats probably why you have so many reading lists for it. That and so you can actually be pretty safe in reading any simple reading order without having anything ruined.
To Kenny, sorry to hear you had some tough times before coming back to comics, I went through something similar a few years back, some family problems, and ended up getting back into comics with some of the new free time I had.
Let me or the others know if any of you have any questions, otherwise take care and all the best. Hope to see you around the site!
