View Full Version : Comic books questions: The new 52

05-10-2012, 02:13 PM
I am a superhero fan. I haven't collected comics for a long, long time. I have a son who's nearly 5 and he's just really getting into Spiderman, Batman, Iron, etc. So I want to get him into comics. I stopped by the local comic book store after seeing the Avengers and huzzah! it happened to be free comic book day.

I have heard of the new 52 by DC for a while now. I have done some research and to be honest, I am a little overwhelmed.

All I want is a Batman series and there's like 50 of them. The same thing with Superman. Which of these new Batman reboots is closest to the regular Batman. I want Batman where he's fighting the Joker, Poison Ivy, the Penguin, etc not aliens. My son and I really like batman the Animated series for the 90s. Is there anything even close to that?

Are the new 52 even worth getting?
