    Question What is the recommended reading pre and post Zero Hour Crisis in Time TPB?

    Just got it through a trade...

    Please advise!
    Can physical comic books be still in good reading condition during my old age?

    Other people may disagree but Zero Hour didn't change to much......unless you're a JSA fan in which most of them got slaughtered. There were several "issue 0" released through the various books that you can find in single issues online or in trade collections.

    I would highly recommend James Robinson's Starman which debuted after zero hour.

    Favorite Characters:

    DC:
    The Flash (Jay, Wally, Barry), The Atom (Ray Palmer) , Starman (Jack Knight) , Stargirl (Courtney Whitmore), and Captain Marvel/Shazam! (Billy Batson).

    MARVEL:
    Daredevil, Spider-Man (Peter Parker), Iron Fist, Ant-Man (Scott Lang), and Star Lord.

    Current Pulls:
    Daredevil, Amazing Spider-Man, Venom, Immortal Hulk, Shazam,Guardians of The Galaxy, Old Man Quill, & Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man.
