Ok, so I figure this is probably one of the best places to ask comic fans all my comic questions. So I just started reading comics (literally less than a week ago) and I had a few questions. I'm asking that before you answer, please don't put any spoilers or tell me what happens; I would much rather just read it myself. I just read Future's End and am a little confused on the backstory. Where do I go to fill my missing knowledge? For example, where do I go to read up on why superman is wearing a mask and what happened to the original superman? Do I need to read up on the Earth-2 comics to keep up with the war they are talking about?
I also read Batman Eternal, and I want to know about the bat-family. What do I read to find out what happened to Dick Grayson? How do I know which comic books tie in with one another or are they all part of the same continuity? For example, are all the batman titles tied together i.e. Detective Comics, Batman, Batman Eternal, Batman: Earth One, etc.
Are they any comics you guys would recommend me getting into? Again, please don't tell me straight up what happens to these characters, just direct me on what to read! Thx in advanced guys!
