Where is a good place for me to start reading Superman comics? I am quite new to comics, and the only knowledge of Superman I have is from watching Smallville (technically not Superman yet). So where should I start? Preferably a point in the Superman universe where you only need minimal knowledge of any past events.

Tyler is right, superman dicks around with the whole universe every ten years or so.

But the John Byrne Man of Steel miniseries from the 80s defines the modern Superman timeline -- it invented Smallville's idea that Clark was just a teen with superpowers and didn't Supe it up til adulthood.

I always mean to read that one collection where he's sitting on a hill, chilling watching the sun set, but it's like £25 \_(ツ)_/¯

Are you talking about All Star Superman? Dude, get it. It is like the greatest Superman story ever told, and that is no lie.

What is that one from the 80s where he gets hit by a tornado and goes on trial in front of a zombie jury?

Only ever saw it in a reprint anthology and it's been bugging me for a while.

Yeah, previously the spambots were more interested in getting started with Batman.

Kinda wish we had a dedicated thread to Batman.

I mean, there was the one I started about a month ago, but it never really got off the ground.
