After reading Marvel only for about 25 years, I decided (after listening to CGS) to dip my toe into DC. I started reading Green Lantern, GL Corps, Booster Gold, Flash, Birds of Prey and Gotham City Sirens. Then, a few months later, they announce Flashpoint and the DCnu. I figured it was a good jumping off point.
However, interest took hold and I thought I'd give it a go. Since then, I now collect: Green Lantern, GL Corps, GL New Guardians, Red Lanterns, JL, JLI, Batman, Batgirl, Batwoman, Barwing, The Flash, Teen Titans, Legion Lost, Superboy, Supergirl and Wonder Woman. So, I guess I'm the reader that DC were aiming this at. :-)
Still a Marvel zombie though and even though it worked for DC, I would NOT want a complete re-launch of the Marvel Universe. So, maybe I can relate to how the long-term DC Universe readers felt about post-Flashpoint too.
what is kind of boggles me is that the Infinite digital comic that was released, the art in that was fantastic! If the art in AvX#1 was close to what was in the Infinite comic with Nova, I might actually buy it, but I have to say that I'm glad I just read it at the shop instead of buying it.
Heartily agree on the Infinite story. Artwork was great and kudos to Marvel for using the digital format so brilliantly. It trod the fine line between traditional comics (which I love) and motion comics (which are a bit 'meh' to me) to great effect.
I'm Geoff. Been collecting (primarily Marvel) comics for 26 years. Big X-book fan, especially New Mutants. Regular monthly pull list at my LCS (Orbital Comics in London) is 47 titles long so have a bit of a backlog for reading.
Started buying DC about 4 months before re-launch. :/ Was going to jump-off at re-launch but being an addict, now have 15 DC titles on my pull-list. Lol.
Slowly getting into digital comics but they'll never replace paper in my eyes.
