    Metabarons Genesis: Castaka - Excellent work, a worthy prequel to The Metabarons.

Or is it Barbara Sr. And Barbara Jr?? J/K. I’m sure there’s some completely insane continuity issue that I don’t know about. Forgive me, I’m relatively new to comics and reading all these classics for the first time.

    May I ask you something? Do you know where the Grayson omnibus fits from a timeline perspective? Thank you

    If I understand correctly, it's a prequel but to be read after the main book, right?

    It's not so much it doesn't hold up, it's just as someone who grew up with this version of batman, at this point I've just been exposed to so much I've enjoyed more across all types of media over the years.
    When I was a teen I thought nothing compares to Alan Moore. As a middle aged person I find I love Frank Miller so much more for the happy uplifting endings, and Moore is just relentlessly a downer. Both great writers but my taste has defiantly changed over the last few decades and I reread Frank so much more than Alan.

    No clue about all of this. I had always thought that it was kind of out of the regular DC continuity but I may be mistaken.

    It should take place right after the events of Forever Evil in the New52.

    Originally the young Barbara who became Batgilr and Oracle was Gordon's niece and I think she got adopted later? Barbara was Jim's wife and if I'm not mistaken she was pregnant with Jim jr in Year one? Jim jr disappeared later for ages and popped back up in Black Mirror.

    I would recommend reading Batgirl Year one (and Robin Year one too) btw. It won't set this straight (although it goes with the niece version IIRC) but it's a really damn good story, lots of fun (but very different to year one).

    Are Batgirl/Robin Year One collected in the same volume? I think I saw it somewhere. Either way, I’ll get both. I’m getting a bit addicted to anything Bat family related. Thanks!

    There is a tpb collecting both. Robin came out as a deluxe sometime this year and Batgirl is announced for 2019 too (if you prefer deluxes).

    Yes, publication order-wise it came after the main book and so "should" be read that way, but it's not like there are any spoilers to the main book or anything (like there would be if you watched SW prequels first, etc).

    I finished reading the FF Epic titled The New Fantastic Four. After John Byrne left, I had read very little FF, even up to the present.

    I very much enjoyed the Simonson stories, and the other ones weren’t bad either.

    Good build quality as well...thick paper.
