The 10 Best Batman Graphic Novels
On the afternoon of June 24, 1989, my parents took me and my brother to a movie theater in Willimantic, CT to see Batman. I was 4 years old.  It was the first movie I saw in a theater.  And it changed my life.
Back To the Future, DC Comics Style
Back when the hardcover edition first came out, my local comic shop ran a "Satisfaction Guaranteed or Your Money Back" special on Booster Gold: 52 Pick-Up. It certainly caught my attention, but I had a few questions first: Do I need to have any previous knowledge about Booster Gold? Do I need to have read 52 to fully understand what's going on?

To the best that my memory serves me, The Death of Superman was the first big comic book event that I saw since I started reading comics. Before it even happened, everyone knew that Supes would die at the hands of an enemy called Doomsday, knew that it would be followed up with a company-spanning event called "Funeral for a Friend," and I'm pretty sure everyone knew that Superman would eventually come back.
