    Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths Reviews Growing up I was a huge comic fan, reading everything I could get my hands on, but something horrible happened: I got a job. Bills started mounting. Bills people expected me to pay! (Yeah, college was over.) My reading slowed down a bit. Then I got married and had kids. More bills to pay and longer hours at work. Gradually, my comic purchasing days came to an end.

Bills started mounting. Bills people expected me to pay! (Yeah, college was over.) My reading slowed down a bit. Then I got married and had kids. More bills to pay and longer hours at work. Gradually, my comic purchasing days came to an end. My friends accused me of just giving up comics; I preferred to label it as a temporary (albeit long) hiatus. But in the last few years, the hiatus has ended, as I’ve tried to get back into comics. The only problem I’ve encountered is where to start? Honestly, that was a hard question to answer. My favorite characters had been rebooted . . . then rebooted again since I last read them. When I turned to my comic loving friends for advice, they each gave me a different starting point and different title to begin with, and even when I tried to limit their advice to just my favorite DCU characters, their instructions became no more coherent. There was just so much material out there no one really knew where to begin. But then I found some help in the DC Entertainment Essential Graphic Novels and Chronology 2015. This great guide is exactly what I was looking for! In it, DC has 145 pages of lists to help people (whether comic newbies or die-hard comic fans) get a grip on all the amazing comic material out there and present them with a proposed reading map of the essential graphic novels in the DCU. Honestly, if you’ve ever wanted to start or pick back up with a DC title, this guide is a must have! And for those who are already thinking it, no, this guide isn’t just for fans of Batman or Superman or Wonder Woman or the Justice League. Sure, each of the “big” titles have their own section, but this guide covers all the bases from kid-friendly comics to serious, adult fare with descriptive blurbs that really lets a reader decide if a particular comic is something they’d be interested in. Essential Graphic Novels. Modern Classics. New 52. Vertigo. Neil Gaiman. Alan Moore. Grant Morrison. Fables. And the very clever From Page to Screen. All these sections and more are packed into this guide. Then there are the character specific sections on Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and all the rest, which serve as amazing spreadsheets of each characters evolution through the decades, allowing a prospective reader to pick what epoch interests them and plot their own reading journey. Now, normally, I am not big of “guides.” Hell, I don’t even read instruction manuals. I’m a guy after all. I learn by trial and error. (Lots of error if I’m telling the truth.) But this is a guide that overwhelmed me with its ease of use, wealth of information, and ability to simplify difficult reboots (The New 52 for me), making my reinsertion into the DCU much easier than it was before I stumbled upon it. For those reason, I highly recommend this one.

    This great for finding new comic you may not have heard of, such as myself with Green Arrow (I think it's called) and seeing if you are missing any copies in the volumes. This also gives the order of which to read a lot of these comics too, so to say this is essential is an understatement for those who love the comics listed in this graphic novel.

    First, I love this cover. I want a large poster of this hanging somewhere in my strangely decorated house. Second, it starts with a recommendation of Watchmen as a great graphic novel - hell, yeah. Third, it reminds me again that I still don't own and haven't read a book I've wanted to for years, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. Why, oh why have I not bought this yet? Same for Batman Killing Joke. (i'm going to stop numbering now...)It reminds me I have Neil Gaiman's Sandman to read still. Hm, sti First, I love this cover.

Hm, still curious about the graphic novel or comics difference from the novelization (not as good to me) of 'Kingdom Come.' Need to read the comics now and compare because of the high rating. Ultimately this a free, colorful release that advertises graphic novels and other from DC Comics that you don't want to miss. While I haven't indulged in all this stuff yet, I need to, and this is a nice reminder. Also shows some upcoming goods. There's the cover on each page, with a synopsis, some clip review quotes and praise. I loved the Modern Classics Artwork! Must be the vintage nerd in me.

    **I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review** When I was just a kid I really enjoyed watching all those animated series about superheroes, I especially remember loving Super Friends. And I also enjoyed the Wonder Woman TV show starring Lynda Carter. I read a few comics growing up, but it had never really been consistent; these past few years I've wanted to go back to it but didn't know where to start, so when I saw this, I knew I had to get it.

I read a few comics growing up, but it had never really been consistent; these past few years I've wanted to go back to it but didn't know where to start, so when I saw this, I knew I had to get it. This proved to be a great guide for people who want to start reading comics, and also a great read for comic fans in general. It offers a big selection of titles, covering the very well-known ones, such as Batman, Superman and the Justice League, and it also includes other ones that people new to this might not be familiar with. We also get a brief explanation of the New 52, introductions to big people in the graphic novel world like Neil Gaiman and Alan Moore, and a section with some comics with their respective TV / movie / video game adaptations. I've played Injustice: Gods Among Us and also a bit of the Batman: Arkham games, so I loved that this was included. A long list of titles with a suggested reading order is also to be found in this guide, which is very helpful. I really loved reading this and finding what to read next, it also gave me the chance to do a lot of research about stories I didn't know much about, and I found some pretty cool stuff this way.

    This is pretty much a free reference guide to the DCU, lists reading orders for some of the best and better known storylines and Graphic Novels. An excellent reference for old and new fans.

Bueno dejando esa pregunta de lado ¿Cómo se sentirá DC Comics al ver que, aunque nos han vendido a Superman como la joya de su corona, Batman es la major serie que tiene? En los 25 esenciales Batman y sus villanos son los más recurrentes. Y ahora, sí se lo preguntan sí, leí más que los 25 esenciales pero esa es la parte que más se destaca seguida del "orden de lectura sugerido", lo cual considero que sí quieres adentrarte en el mundo de DC comics es de bastante ayuda. En sí lo que este lbro presenta es las historias más importantes de sus personajes y Vertigo comics, no limitando a historias recientes pero si a las más populafres. Para todas se incluye una breve sinopsis y los datos para localizar el número si es que te interesa.

    I received this through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This guide to DC comics is perfect. I started getting into graphic novels and comics a few years ago, but it is so hard to know where to look. At least for all new readers this is a perfect start, as for more experienced, I can't say but I'm sure it would be appreciated.

    Honestly, I don't even know how to review this book, nor do I know where it came from. One day, it was just there! Seriously! What I can say is, because I am a fan of all superheroes, I enjoyed thumbing through this baby. It's a catalog of all things super: where to begin, the most relevant, the ones who adapted with the cultures, and so much more. It was DC's way of showing you the vast world of graphic novels and exactly which one fits you, the reader.

I grew up on comics, baseball cards and the very first issue of YM magazine, so I know beginnings... (OH Dang! YM stopped in 2004!) Anyway, take a peek at the video to see what's inside. Each year a new catalog is to be released so be looking for another some time soon!

    In reading this review, you’ve got to keep in mind that this is a free book designed to list the graphic novels carried by DC Comics. And what it’s designed for is perfect. Do you want to collect all the Multiverse books? Make sure you’ve collected (or read) all the Fables books? Then this book will ensure you’ve got the coverage you need.

Then this book will ensure you’ve got the coverage you need. Or if, as the intro says, you’re asking, Where do I begin? It starts out with the 25 “Essential” DC graphic novels. It’s hard to argue with this; and I’ve read almost 20 of them. Though I’m not sure I agree with the Court of Owls. And then it breaks them out by heroes. Then Vertigo titles. And authors (like Neil Gaiman and Alan Moore). Recommended if you want to see what stories you’re missing in the DC universe. (And the cover is wonderfully meta.)

    I loved it! it was very helpful. if you're a new reader of DC Comics Graphic Novels it tells you exactly where to begin which is a big problem when encountering such wide spread of storylines and heroes. not only does it tell you the best place to start but it continues to give advice as to where to go next. This book also gives you an idea as to which Novels have become shows and what the names of said shows are and vice versa.

If that wasn't incentive enough you also get to identify the classics and know the spin offs and reinventions of the classics, that way you get catch up. We all hate starting something half way through.

    I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This is a great, concise list of all of what DC Entertainment believes its best comics and graphic novels are. Each title has a brief description as well as cover art. I would recommend this to a beginner who wants to start reading graphic novels but isn't sure which ones to choose. I might also recommend it to collectors who want to ensure they haven't missed anything.

    "Essential" is not a strong enough word to describe the worth of this book in an era when alternate comic book universes are multiplying as if under the Gemini Curse and reboots occur as often as sneezes. The first part is a collection of the 25 best DC trade paperbacks/graphic novels.

    Pretty much the same as 2014's edition, this is a selection of the more sellable DC back catalogue titles, and a guide to reading the New 52 explosion of relaunches (several of which have been replaced since, by, er, new relaunches). Reading orders, suggestions of page-to-screen link-ups, and career resumes of some of their big-hitters, it offered fewer buying suggestions to me than the previous volume, but will suffice (just about) for the inquisitive.

    This is a clever reference guide and it feels like it was made for new comic and graphic novel readers, just like me. There are summaries of new anthologies, whole pages on your favorite hero(es) and writers, and a fairly comprehensive guide for chronology. While I don't think it's comprehensive, it is definitely a great starting point if you want to get into graphic novels and don't know where to start.

    2.5 Stars It was okay. I get that it's a reference for any would-be or current reader of the DC-verse, but after reading this title, it seemed less effective than I think the publisher had in mind. Though it did put thins in some chronological order, it also made it seem a bit tedious and overwhelming. (As a guide it only gets an "OK" 2 Star rating for me. Visually speaking, it gets a "Good" 3 Star rating so that's balancing out to a 2.5.)

    This is basically a catalog with a list of all the must haves; it also gives you a timeline so you can follow the story and know if you're missing any volumes here or there. I love these because it's a nifty checklist and not only that you get to see about other series you've not check out before. Rating 5 out of 5 [email protected]

    Great for explaining multiple origins I had wondered about all the different storylines of the characters. Now I know which books to get. The diagram in the middle, I felt, was helpful.

    This was essentially a catalog of books that you should add to your collection if you are a fan of the comic books that star these characters. I like that they did this but it could include some sample story pages to make it even better.
