The Moment You Did Not Know You Were Waiting For Is Here

It’s here! It’s finally here!

Ok, maybe finally is a strong word.

But, if you’ve been waiting for a weekly podcast from DC Comics News that boldly picks the top five books you should be reading each and every week, then the wait is indeed over.

What is a spinner rack?

When I was growing up, a spinner rack was the shape of a Christmas tree with metal shelves that climbed up to the top.

I could find them at my local drug and pharmacy stores, and at a little newspaper stand nestled in the quiet downtown of the growing rural bedroom community where I lived.

It was a place where I could find an imaginary world to escape into when mom or dad had to pick up groceries or a prescription. It was a chance to find mystery and wonder smack dab in the middle of the mundane.

A few disclaimers regarding this list.

I’ll be honest. I have not been reading the full series for each of these books. Some are books that I have never read before.

Others I never heard of before they appeared in this list. Some were new enough that I only went back an issue or two and then I was caught up.

A few are so far along that it would have been impossible.

With that in mind, I read each of these books as a standalone issue.

I tried not to consider the relevance of the current story in a longer storyline.

Sometimes I did, and that is just me being human.
