@chem86: No probs, a long-ass list of recommendations always comes in handy :P

@chem86: If you like Superman more than Batman, then I recommend you check out Action Comics as well. Now, if you need recommendations from DC in general...

I guess I'll list some from different characters and stuff:


  • Man of Steel (and the rest of John Byrne's run)
  • For All Seasons
  • Birthright
  • Last Son
  • Escape from Bizarro World
  • Superman and Legion of Super Heroes
  • Brainiac
  • Earth One (Vol. 1 and 2) <--- Especially recommended if you're a new Superman reader
  • Superman and the Men of Steel
  • All Star Superman
  • Red Son


  • Year One
  • The Man Who Laughs
  • The Long Halloween
  • Dark Victory
  • The Killing Joke
  • A Death in the Family
  • Knightfall
  • Cataclysm
  • No Man's Land

  • Greg Rucka's run
  • Gail Simone's run
  • A League of One
  • Brian Azzarello's run

Green Lantern

  • Emerald Dawn I & II
  • Green Lantern/Green Arrow
  • Willworld
  • Ganthet's Tale
  • Geoff Johns' run
  • Green Lantern Corps (post Rebirth)
  • Alan Moore's stories

The Flash

  • Pretty much all of Vol 2, from Mike Baron to Geoff Johns (especially stuff like The Return of Barry Allen and Blitz)
  • The Flash & Green Lantern: The Brave and the Bold
  • Final Crisis: Rogues' Revenge

Yeah, I know it looks like I'm not recommending much, but my first recommendation are 200+ issues, so I think that's enough for now ;)


  • Peter David's run
  • Aquaman Vol 6
  • Geoff Johns' run

Justice League of America

  • JLA: Year One
  • JLA: Incanations
  • Morrison's run

  • The New Frontier
  • Riddle of the Beast
  • The Nail & Another Nail

List any characters or teams you're interested in!

Personally, I always liked the idea that magic users should not get involved in events like these.

The Nail
The New Frontier

  • Aquaman
  • Wonder Woman
  • Demon Knights
  • I, Vampire
  • Animal Man
  • Swamp Thing
  • Justice League Dark
  • Threshold

Haven't read Deathstroke but I've heard the series has become pretty damn good as of issue 15. Also, Green Arrow is getting a new (good) creative team this month, so I recommend you check that out as well. And no, I'm not recommending Batman because you were probably going to read that anyway.

Oh, and there's Red Hood and the Outlaws too. I don't like that series so I can't recommend it, but some other people do and since you're a new reader you may like it as well.
