After at least a half-decade of being a dedicated Marvel guy with only a very slight interest in the titles DC was publishing (aside from the Vertigo imprint), I have, for no apparent reason, all of a sudden become interested in DC again and have started catching up. My catch-up starts in 2004/2005, about a year before Infinite Crisis, around the time of Identity Crisis. The time when all the Superman titles got new creative teams, Geoff Johns was just beginning to lay the groundwork for his takeover of the entire DCU, Gail Simone took over Birds of Prey, Greg Rucka took over Wonder Woman and ended up writing pretty much half of all DC's titles for a short time, and all that. Why start there? Because that's when it seems I started collecting DC trades. No better reason. Anyway, until my interests change again, and insofar as work and school allow, I'm going to be working through DC books, with no particular rhyme or reason, just whatever catches my interest at any given time. I created this thread to help myself keep track of what I've read, and hopefully get some advice along the way as to which titles may be worth checking out and which I can skip. Tomorrow I'll be starting with my thoughts on Jeph Loeb's couple years on Superman/Batman and the other titles I've read so far -- some good, and some awful -- and I'll see where the stories take me from there.
