If you liked that, you may be interested to read Robin: Year One!

Dick also shows up in BATGIRL: YEAR ONE and it’s written by the same team as Robin: Year One.

I would suggest going to the Community Events forum and participating in the clubs. They will provide you with plenty of stories to read, and if you like some of them, you can go from there.

If you’re looking for Dick Grayson stuff, I can highly recommend Grayson, but I’d advise reading Forever Evil first. Tim Seely’s rebirth run is also good.

If u loved year one & Dick Grayson. Teen Titans year one is really good imho. Also, for later, Nightwing The New Order is a very good mini 6 issues. I thought it was one of the best reads that I hadn’t heard of until I read it.

Hey I’m having the same trouble on what to read next. I read crisis and just finished legends, now not sure what to read next started identity crisis but kinda confused … new to the app so I’m piggy back riding this post sorry thanks …

Give the Justice league/ justice league international a try. Its the Bwa Ha Ha era, good reads, great art, AWESOME character studies, and every once in awhile a superhero/supervillain fight breaks out.

It shows up here as Justice League America 1987-. I just checked, not wantin to lead you on some crazy goose chase. The suicide squad from that same time, late 80s, was good stuff, too

Sometimes wingin it is the best possible way. Theres one buy here that picks books by publication date. Just picks a month and a year outta a hat or somethin. Carte blanche, try em all.

@Zues_769

If you want to stay in time period of 1987

Superman Man of Steel by John Byrne
Wonder Woman by George Perez
Batman Year One by Frank.Miller
Justice League International
Are great reads

Closer to current times
Aquaman 2011 by Geoff Johns
Superman Lois and Clark 2015
Batman in Detective Comics by Tynion 2016 showing the Bat Family
Wonder Woman 2016 Year One issues 2 4 6 8 10 12 14
Are excellent

In.general I find stories about events to be not good for people just starting out. Too many characters you don’t know

Pick.a character you want to know more about and you will get suggestions.
