What comics should I read in order to “get” Superman? [R]

I’ve read All-Star Superman, Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?, For the Man who has Everything, The Swamp Thing Story, and seen the first two episodes of the Animated series. I still don’t believe I understand what the character is supposed to be. I haven’t seen or read any of the above recently however, but what other books or runs should I read that will help?

Even though it's not technically Superman, Secret Identity was one of my first Superman books and I really appreciated the grounded/humanist perspective.

I never "got" Superman until I read most of these and some others. He's the epitome of hope, inspiration, restraint, perseverance. He's not from here, yet he loves us. He could easily enslave/destroy/judge/ignore us, but instead he carefully tiptoes around our world made of glass. What do people do when they're in positions of power/responsibility? He shows us how important family, friends, work, etc. are in shaping who we become, and what happens when we push it all away. It's less about the ideals and more about how he practices them. My favorite stories are those where he's used to help us understand ourselves rather than punching cartoonish supervillains (but those can be fun too) or preaching some unchallenged/absolute code of morals. He searches for the meaning of "doing good", tries to do good, sees mixed results/push back, and still keeps trying.

Keep in mind, this is just my "head canon" amalgamated version of him from reading many different writers' characterizations/ideas.

I’m looking for self contained Superman comics, I’ve been reading comics for a while now but I haven’t read a lot of Superman books. I’ve already read All Star Superman, Red Son and Superman Earth One.

Your favourite Superman comics? [R]

With all the news about COIE having two Supermans, I’m just thinking about the comics and realised I don’t have a lot of Superman comics. So what are your favourite ones or some really good ones to recommend?

New to comics, need help following the main universe [R]

11 months agoTigertemprr posted submission on DCcomics.
July 1, 2019

So, i am relatively new to comics, and I am most interested in DC comics. I want to follow the main continuity that is going on. I'm not interested in on-off stories at the moment. I want to follow the comics where the events will have actual consequences on the main universe. My problem is that everything is so confusing with all the different universes and versions of the same character.

To be more specific, i'm most interested in starting with Superman. There's no way I can read everything from since there's decades of content. What is the most accessible/easiest place to start, that also takes place in the main universe and continuity?

I'll just paste this here again since you deleted the other post:


I'm interested in finally getting into comics

Great!

I've done a lot of research about the significance of the Flashpoint, Convergence, and Rebirth events, but im still confused. My issue is that, all of the multiverses makes it very hard to understand the origins of a certain character. From my understanding, Flashpoint reset everything so all of the heroes lossed important parts of their origins, Convergence brought back all of the multiverses, and Rebirth brought back a lot of the important memories of the heroes. Please correct me if i'm wrong on that.

Oh, no! I personally don't think researching 75+ years of comicbook history is the best way to get into reading comics. I'd just read some popular/acclaimed titles for characters that interest you. If you're more interested in encyclopedic DC universe knowledge then it's easier to get that information via youtube, wikis, summaries, articles, etc. than the actual comics themselves.

To briefly/broadly answer your questions, there are 3 mainline comic continuities:

  • Pre-Crisis of Infinite Earths (1938—1985)
  • Post-Crisis of Infinite Earths (1985—2011)
  • New 52. Caused by the Flashpoint event. (2011—present)

Those represent the largest shifts/changes in status quo, characterizations, references, history, etc. However, every individual writer/editor can change anything they want per comic too (and we all know how humans can make mistakes).

Your assessment of Flashpoint, Convergence, and Rebirth is roughly correct. However, those are not necessarily things a first-time reader should be preoccupied with. Knowing that Tom King's Batman Rebirth takes place in the New 52 continuity doesn't really enhance the reading experience for Batman Year One, Long Halloween, Hush, etc. Knowing which origin story is "correct" doesn't really matter if they're going to re-tell/re-tweak it every 5 years. It also doesn't really matter if it's not even well-written or you dislike the art (which is more important than new readers know)! You could read all kinds of cool character feats/bios, skills/abilities, major events, plot points on some wikipedia article. But, then you try to read/engage with the actual source material and it's nowhere near as exciting as it sounded in those summaries. Can you imagine somebody only ever reading reviews, textbooks, discussion about movies, but never actually watching one?

Getting into comics means reading comics. The quicker you start reading, the quicker you can answer your own questions (or know how to search for more specific answers). New readers tend to think of decades-old shared-universe superhero comics like a single epic story. They are not like that. They are a collection of self-contained stories that only occasionally remind readers that they exist in the same universe. They were never written to be read in a specific "order" (outside of just following issue numbers). Nobody is steering DC's entire production/publishing line somewhere everyone agrees is perfect. Comics are disorganized/flawed and you have to build your own preferences/methodology for determining what you're willing to put up with. No matter where you start, you will "miss" something. That's OK. Think of it as mysteries to solve later.

the character I'm most interested in following is Superman


I crossed out the runs above I don't think take place in the "main" universe (someone correct me if I missed something). I think a lot of Superman fans would be sad to see a new reader skip those titles.

that also takes place in the main universe and continuity

Do you mean current continuity i.e. New 52? Just read from Morrison's Action Comics forward. Here's a more comprehensive reading order if you're into that sort of thing.

I used to be more into Batman, but lately I've really started to appreciate Superman. I've been reading a lot of titles on DC Universe: Superman For All Seasons, Superman Confidential, All Star Superman, Superman American Alien. I was wondering if anyone knew of some other good Superman stuff I could read.

I've been reading comics for almost 6 months and getting into Superman has been a pet project of mine for a little bit, I've popped up here and there asking for suggestions and after disliking All Star Superman, I started to think maybe he just wasn't for me. So I was perusing all the big famous Supes comics and I realised, I don't want to read a comic "celebrating" him, I just want an ongoing about him.

Luckily there's a DC sale on comixology ATM and I saw Man of Steel and Superman, both written by, of all people, THE Bendis. I love USM and bit the bullet...I read all of Man of Steel last night and this morning, starting the current ongoing now...and I finally get it.

Superman is cool as fuck. He's fun and funny and having a wife and kid really helps humanise him. Seeing how he exists with Bats and the League helps too. I gotta say I am loving this series and once I'm caught up I'll officially be pulling an ongoing Superman comic. I can't recommend Bendis' stuff enough for anyone else like me who struggled with Supes a little.

I personally don't think All-Star Superman is the best place to start for the character. I've seen new readers pick it up and enjoy it, but it probably won't live up to the praise due to unfamiliarity vs the book being a celebration of decades of Superman comics.

Going forward, here are some Superman modern essentials:

When you're done with all that, revisit All-Star Superman. I'd be willing to bet you have a different opinion on it then.

Hello everyone! So, I've always been a huge superhero fan. I grew up on stuff like Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, The Justice League, and a bunch of awesome superhero movies. But now I finally want to dive into the world of comics. The heroes I'm interested in are the Flash, Green Arrow, and Superman. I'm also interested in the Justice League and the Teen Titans. Unfortunately, I have NO IDEA where to start reading. I now there was the New 52 a little while back. I also know that Rebirth is kind of a soft reboot, but I still have no idea where to start reading. If anyone could help me out, I'll love you forever :)
