Very sorry about that. Normally I doublecheck my links. I have updated it now and it should work.

This list has been what I've gone by to go back and read issues and also to request my library to purchase in the future.

Re: Multiple omic book series focusing on the same character

Awesome, thanks. Looks like they actually have the vast majority of that stuff for the PSP, although there might be a couple gaps I need to fill. Sadly they only have up to the Sinestro Corps Wars, but if I like the rest of the series as much as I did the first issue of Rebirth I'll probably continue past that in paper form.

Re: Multiple omic book series focusing on the same character

I really enjoyed Sinestro Corps War - it was what I would consider a manageable-sized event. (Final Crisis I would call an unmanageably large size event). Consists of 3 collections - don't forget the "Tales of the Sinestro Corps" collection - That Lyssa Drax is a hottie.

I don't remember rightly which one goes first but if you get interested in Superboy Prime then you should definitely check out "Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds" (where you can pretty safely ignore the Final Crisis part of the title - it has almost nothing to do with Final Crisis).

Blackest Night is a just a little too big for me to keep it all straight for me. I think I count about 7 collections in Blackest Night (the main title, GL, GLC, Rise of the Black Lanterns, Tales of the Corps, and Black Lantern Corps - Parts 1 & 2). That's way too much stuff. Almost too much to handle.

Fortunately for Blackest Night 90% of the tie-ins are completely superfluous. You need to read BN, and you should read GL and GLC, but that's really about it. You could just read BN and be fine.

GLC isn't even necessary. I think BN and GL, BN Titans and BN Batman are it.

Yes, but GLC is awesome Plus, Patrick Gleason art!

Why Titans and Bats? Were those the ones with Dove and Deadman in them?

Re: Multiple omic book series focusing on the same character

Does anyone here do the Marvel or DC digital comics on a PC/Laptop? I realized looking around today, that I can actually do digital comics on my laptop instead of my tiny PSP. And not only will they be bigger, but there are tons more comics available for the PC/Laptop than for the PSP.

Re: Multiple omic book series focusing on the same character

^ I for one have pretty much given up on that, since most of these digital comics are in a .cbr format which my PC can't read. I suspect it has something to do with me not using Windows, but Ubuntu. .cbz files are no problem, though. Also, why was there a need for these formats anyway, when there is the .pdf format doing pretty much the same?

I see. Fitting, since I can't open rar files either, but zip are no problem.

I've grown to hate rar.
