    For a free catalogue, this is a great reference source especially for the newcomer to the DC universe. Starting with a list of 25 essential graphic novels that should be read (this includes vol. 1 of series) from both DC itself and its imprint Vertigo. Readers who haven't been around for long will get themselves a fantastic start to reading DC. Almost everything listed here I am at least familiar with if I have not already read it.

Starting with a list of 25 essential graphic novels that should be read (this includes vol. 1 of series) from both DC itself and its imprint Vertigo. Readers who haven't been around for long will get themselves a fantastic start to reading DC. Almost everything listed here I am at least familiar with if I have not already read it. Next you are introduced to Vol. 1 of all the "New 52" series started up to the point of its publication, mind some of these series have already been cancelled, but at least it gives you a sense of what you want to read. I'm only keeping up with two at the moment well, all the JL's and just the one Batman, but I find this list to be very informative. Next we go through each of the major male superheroes with a section devoted to each with the must read volumes in each character's history with the women being delegated to a "Women of DC" section. I'm big on Batman and found this section very interesting and can see myself going back to it should my interest get deeper in another hero. Follows is a list of Vertigo's Top Series and I found many of these I hadn't heard of but after that came a focus on the very popular series such as Fables, Sandman, etc. These I have either read or know very much about. Finally there is a short author feature with lists of recommended reading by a few top authors and then the catalogue ends up with a chronological reading order of DC superheroes and a recommended Vertigo reading list. These are certainly useful lists. I've read other reviews of this catalogue by more knowledgeable DC readers than I, and the main complaint I've seen is that this catalogue only lists books currently in print at the time it was published. Of course, the catalogue's purpose of being available for free is to sell books for the company and having out of print books listed would be frustrating to customers, but on the other hand for readers trying to be completist this catalogue listing is not really going to be what your looking for and there are probably much better volumes available for purchase that will list everything you could possible want to know about. I had fun scanning through this. Added books to my tbr list and think it's great for the price!

I am going to give it a true rating & review, some parts it was boring and some parts it was thrilling. If you have time to waste this book is for you! Let me say I like the set up for this book about the different comics of DC Entertainment. This book talks about the different comics made over the years,and what that comic is about. It states alot of more stuff about the writer,author,ISBN,Diamond Code,Price & Format about the comics. The 1st section includes 27 old comics,and then 52 new comics! These 52 new comics are all starting out the new stories of Batman,Superman,Green Lantern & Many More! Books related to the old comics & new comics are also included in the new 52. The book also has its own sections for the different comics. Like,Batman has his own 2 pages of his adventures. Their is also a section for mature readers for people that like to read about death,and strange things. Explains the different people that make these comic books for DC Entertainment. MAD a hit tv-show & comic book has its own section about its parodys abouttv-shows & people back in the day and in this generation/century. DC All Ages: DC All Ages is a section about comics for everyone no matter their age,these include tiny titans & young justice. Thank you DC Comic for posting these comics & chronologies for a first read reading!

    Further down the rabbit hole I go. I am a long-time geek, but a newbie to comic books. However, I have found myself quickly hooked, being introduced to Batman in DC’s The New 52. As I read, it has occurred that maybe I need to go deeper into the Bat past to flesh out my knowledge. Have you seen how many Bat tales are out there?!? (Of course you have!) It’s not just Batman.

I have found myself wondering, which other comics might catch my fancy. I tried going to a comic convention and it just overwhelmed me. My dilemma is where the heck do I start? Aha! Enter the DC Entertainment Essentials. Granted, it only covers the DC Universe, but it is a good guide to help me find my way. This is clearly not a book to read for entertainment. However, it is a great reference for newbies like me. Thanks DC for enabling my geekdom! If you are a newbie like me, or maybe you just have not taken a deep dive into the archives, look for this handy dandy little guide. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I think I have some shopping to do!

    Not much to say about this. I found it interesting. It was nice to know which comics should be read in which orders and which were "landmark" so to speak, or genre-defining. It's very hard to know how to break into certain fandoms without a guide, so I will use it for that. It's also nice to see things like Fables and Sandman featured alongside Batman. The version I received from netgalley had really wonky formatting, but it was free, and I could follow what was being said for the most part, so i Not much to say about this. I found it interesting.

Expect to see me reading most of the discussed titles in the near future.

    In this book I saw several graphic novels that I have read, but also found others that I didn't know about and now definitely plan to read. Since there are a lot of books, both past and present, that I haven't gotten around to reading yet, I love how they included a reading order for many of these books.

    a nice little compendium for those looking for a quick intro to geek culture in the DC universe. loved the design of the book, and though I knew of many of the tpb previously, there were still several that I only knew a little about. the suggested reading order will prove to be a handy resource, I think. nicely done.

    This is exactly what it claims to be- a catalog of DC graphic novels. A good reference guide, but not much more than that. I could see this being useful to people who want to get into comics and aren't quite sure where to start. It starts with a list of essential DC graphic novels to read along with summaries and then is broken down by character. Not very exciting, but a good guide.

    I mean, it's mostly covers and ratings and review snippets of various comics. It would have been more enjoyable had I read the comics or I was looking for a guide to reading them. Unfortunately, I'm not at the moment, so it's not as useful as it could be.

    Already read most of the titles in the first recommendations part, but, the Chronology at the end will probably prove useful. (What can I say, I love TPBs).
