The New 52 Reading List

The New 52 DC’s big bang began on August 31, 2011 following the conclusion of Flashpoint and commencing with Justice League #1 (at the time helmed by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee a fantastic one-two punch that like a Summer romance didn’t last long). On May 25, 2016 the Rebirth one-shot was released signalling the end of The New 52 and the, well rebirth of DC’s universe. Again.

In July 2016 I appeared on Geek Hard’s Back Issue Bloodbath podcast #39 to autopsy The New 52. I found that to be a difficult task…it’s only a 30 minute podcast. Plus I needed process time to understand what I’d read…The New 52 body was still slightly warm.

That Geek Hard discussion though got me thinking on what I’ve read of The New 52:

Animal Man {Jeff Lemire’s outstanding run…highly recommended)
Arkham Manor {Silly idea…skip it}
Batman {Another impressive run…one of the best Batman tales in years}
Batman Eternal {S’alright…}
Blue Beetle {Kinda silly}
Bizarro (mini)
