    Ok.. im not a fan of DC and Ive seen a couple groups here and there on a few of the sites. Im looking for a good list of Infinite Crisis stuff.

    Currently, I have this downloading (1.03GB)

    Prelude to Infinite Crisis.
    Countdown to Infinite Crisis
    Infintie Crisis: Issues 01-07
    Day Of Vengeance: Issues 01-06 plus Infinite Crisis Special
    The Return of Donna Troy: Issues 01-04
    The O.M.A.C. Project: Issues 01-06 plus Infinite Crisis Special
    Rann-Thanagar War: Issues 01-06 plus Infinite Crisis Special
    Sacrifice: 6 Crossover Issues
    Villains United: Issues 01-06 plus Infinite Crisis Special
    Aftermath - Bludhaven: Issues 01-02 plus B/W First Look

    All I know is that JLA is starting over and so I'm going to start reading that :o

    Supergirl is also pretty new so I've been reading that.

    First off, make sure you read "Crisis on Infinite Earths." It was the major reboot for DC in the 80's, which this bases heavily on. It's not the best story ever, but for it's time, it was necessary. After you read that, you can read the other stories you're getting in this order:
    Prelude > Identity Crisis > Countdown to IC > Rann/Thanagar, Villains United, and Day of Vengeance (concurrently or in sequence, all happening at same time, but self contained; don't read the specials yet) > The Return of Donna Troy > Lightning Strikes Twice > Crisis of Conscience > Sacrifice > O.M.A.C. Project (spoiled if read before "Sacrifice) > Infinite Crisis (you can read the IC specials of the minis here too)

    If you really want to read them in the order they were sold, issue by issue, you could take a look at the shipping histories in the diamond distributor's archives and do it in that order...but that's a lot of research.

    Oh, and after you read Identity Crisis, you'll care for Elongated Man.

    Maybe, but still... elongated man? It sort of lacks the same appeal as say "Iron Man" or "Spider Man" or even "Ant Man." In fact, I'm fairly sure Elongated Man is the worst name of the ___ Man genre.

    Except for Fallsdownstairs Man.

    52 is trying to make him count for something. Though I've only been able to find up to 9 so far.

    Well, as far as second tier characters go, I certainly respect the guy. However, he's nowhere near as cool as Iron Fist or anyone of that caliber. He's just...human.
