That is a comprehensive list. Thanks!

Question: Are you going to make a new TRO section for The New 52! books since some take place before Flashpoint and yet because of it? I've actually done that in my own collection, but I haven't tried to figure out the reading order yet. Some of them are easy to pace, like the Batman related titles, because the events seem to be happening concurrently.

Thanks again for bringing the site back; it's nice to know what's happening elsewhere in the DC Universe as I read my trades. :)

we'll definitely have a tag, but I'm not sure yet if it's as big of a deal as say, Crisis / Post-Crisis.

Some of them take place before Flashpoint? Or is stuff just in continuity still after flashpoint?

I know Justice League Vol. 1: Origin and Superman: Action Comics Vol. 1: Superman and the Men of Steel definitely do. Wonder Woman Vol. 1: Blood might as well.

As near as I can tell, all four Green Lantern titles and most (all?) of the Batman titles continue on right after Flashpoint without too many major changes, but everything else got a good and healthy reboot.

I have only read 23 of the books. I may try to place them in their own chronology, but some timing seem a bit ambiguous, Teen Titans being the best example.

ok, I'll include the tag on any of the books released after flash-point as part of the new continuity (And not collections of older material) and then we can start tagging things back if we feel it's needed.

Awesome. Yeah, Flashpoint was definitely a reset, leading to a whole new continuity with the vast majority of characters. And even though some things take place befor Flashpoint, they still are part of the new continuity (The New 52!) and not the old continuity (Post-Crisis).

Something like some comics before. Year One take place before Crisis. Yes or i'm wrong in this?

I was thinking it might be a good idea to separate it out into its own chronology simply because the whole point of The New 52! was to creat something new people could read without reading anything before; but you do make an excellent point here. Reboots are confusing.

yeah, but like every reboot there are constant references to past continuity.

It will definitely have its own tag for those who prefer to start there, and the tag won't include prior books, but it won't be separate from the main READ EVERYTHING dc list like the wildstorm one currently is.

Honestly, that's a much bigger issue to me – should I figure out ways to add wildstorm in? Shazam has non-dc published books collected in archives, now that Stormwatch is mainstream DCU, should the other books also be there?

The tag idea probably makes the most sense.

You might be missing a few of the Tales of Batman (Jim Aparo, Gene Colan…)
Aside from that I'm not noticing anything.
