@SocksForYou

"Daredevil: Born Again" is really good too, also by Miller.

@Chiren I'll give that one a shot. I also loved Miller's Ronin when I was a kid, and I finally read Batman: Year One a while back.

@SocksForYou Batman: the Cult by Berni Wrightson is very good. I'm surprised they didn't read Jim Lee's own Batman: Hush.

Gotta say, Im loving every minute of this game. The Cutscenes are excellent, the combat is paced perfectly to fit the setting, I love it.

With the exception on a few bugs (Powers not damaging targets, lag once in awhile, CHAT SYSTEM) and whiners on the forums and in-game bitching about character creation limitatation...the usual bullshit...I could'nt ask for a better game!

Nice list! I've always been partial to Marvel, but I am enjoying DCUO so much that it makes me want to immerse myself in the DCU lore. If only I had time to play the game and read through the list :(

BTW ... Looks like the commenters on ComicsAlliance made suggestions for additional reading material that is missing.

I just love working for Batman. Recently started on the Amusement Mile arc. Having Batman and the Joker voiced by Conroy and Hamil just makes the game for me.

@JonBuck. I'm actually worried about what they are going to do with the Joker in future patches since Mark Hamil is retiring the Jokers voice after Arkham Asylum 2.

They really should have got all of the Justice League cast for the voices, everyone except Batman, Joker, and Superman just sound wrong to me.

Mildly startled that they included "Amazons Attack" in their Wonder Woman lore but none of the George Perez trades.

The devs reading list should include the current exchange rates.

Not only are they slugging Australians over 25% more subscriptions they expect us to pay 60% more for station cash. This is insulting and I implore Australians getting the game today to not register as an Australian in your account if you do not want to be gouged by these greedy bastards.

I love that "Planet Heist" is number two on the list.

If I were to include a couple more series/books it would be the recent Brave & the Bold, Manhunter, Secret Six, and Starman (Jack Knight). Not only are they mini tours of the more obscure DC characters, but have a lot of great examples of superhero genre storytelling.

Based on the costume styles and world full of heroes storyline, I'm surprised Kingdom Come isn't on the list. Although maybe Kingdom Come's influence is so pervasive in a lot of the more recent books on the list, that reading the original isn't necessary as much as it is just enjoyable.

If they ever dip more into the LSH, they should read The Great Darkness Saga.

Don't see Ambush Bug nor Son of Ambush Bug on the list so not bothering with this game even though it's right up my alley. And since players can't be ring bearers yet I'm holding off.
