but I need your help to do it. Obviously, stand-alone things like "The Killing Joke" are awesome, but I want something that's going to make me love the DC universe a a whole. I've read a Crisis or two, and they just baffle me, same as Darkest Night. I really enjoy the modern idea of Batman, but I realize that this whole terribly serious, scary prepared guy is relatively recent. I think the hero I would be most happy with is one of the Green Lanterns, and I want to learn more about Wonder Woman.

So, help me out, folks. What are my must-read DC comics?
