DC Modern Age
DC Modern Age
Recommended Reading Order - 1348 Entries

I start the Modern Age at Crisis on Infinite Earths, but Frank Miller‘s The Dark Knight Returns and Alan Moore‘s Watchmen also helped to set the tone for our modern era. Superheroes could become fully fleshed characters and interact with realistic worlds. Comics might be for mature readers again. Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman were solidly rebooted and almost every aspect of the DCU was reinvented. As far as I know, we are still in the Modern Age of comics.
