Perhaps one of the largest projects ever undertaken in all of comics, DC’s weekly title “52” came out every Wednesday, without any delays, for an entire year. It wove together storylines from across the publisher’s universe and highlighted the rich world crafted by decades of brilliant creators. We’re going to read all of it. This week, we read volume one and give our first impressions of the characters and mull over how the stories are set up.

Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s our first Superman episode!
