Where to start reading DC?

I haven’t read comics in years. A few months ago I wanted to get back into it, so I started reading back at Rebirth with the plan of reading until I’m current. Now that Justice League has started up again, I’m wondering if they’re headed for another full reboot and I should just skim ahead in Rebirth to catch up.

Has anyone heard if this new Justice League is going to be a full reboot? It sure would be easier to skim ahead and start with the more current books.

You start at the beginning and finish at the end!

I mean if you like the sound of Justice League you can try it but DC’s history can be long and convoluted to people not at least a bit familiar with it.

  1. Wathmen - will be usefull to have read once you reach Rebirth
  2. Crisis on Infinite Earths
  3. Legends - Intro of Darkseid in modern DC, creation of the Suicide Squad and of the Justice League
  4. Identity Crisis
  5. Infinit Crisis Omnibus
  6. One Year Later
  7. 52 - story of the missing year between Infinit Crisis and One Year Later - it is excellent
  8. Final Crisis
