As someone just coming back into comics (but with an extensive knowledge of both DC and Marvel history anyway), and as someone on a student budget, I'm trying to buy as much as I can, both print and digital, but have to be v. discerning. I really want to read Wonder Woman, Batwoman, Animal Man and a few others from DC, but instead at the comic shop yesterday I left with a handful of Marvel titles.
Because I knew I would be jumping into issues with no idea what happened previously if I bought DC! Now as someone who has read comics all their life (21 years) and knows a lot about both universes etc, I'm sure I'd be fine, and I could look up things here, get past issues digitally I guess... but that's not really the point. For a casual reader, surely just *some* form of catch-up thing should be provided? It just seems obvious to me.
Why haven't they done this? Is there a reason I'm missing? It's not like these are Claremont-ian comic full of fill-in exposition (thank goodness).
[also I haven't tried every DC comic so come may have this sort of thing that I just haven't seen]
