DC Entertainment Essential Graphic Novels and Chronology 2013

DC has released a free catalog for readers that highlight the 25 essential DC/Vertigo graphic novels, good jumping on points for new readers, and a backlist reading chronology for a whole bunch of DC titles. I would suggest this catalog to anyone looking to get a good dose of DC titles that are currently available. I will warn you though there are some titles missing from DC's backlist, because they are out of print, and this may cause some frustration when you start reading a series that has missing volumes.
To get you started I have listed below the 25 essential titles that DC thinks you should read:

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns
The Sandman - Vol. 1: Preludes & Nocturnes
Batman: Year One

V for Vendetta
Saga of the Swamp Thing - Book 1
Fables Vol. 1: Legends in Exile
Batman: The Killing Joke
Y: The Last Man - Vol. 1: Unmanned
All Star Superman
Kingdom Come
Batman: The Long Halloween
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen - Vol. 1
Batman: Earth One
Green Lantern: Rebirth
American Vampire - Vol. 1
Blackest Night
Final Crisis
JLA - Vol. 1
Identity Crisis
Batman: Hush
The Joker
The Flash: Rebirth
Superman: Earth One - Vol. 1
Planetary - Vol. 1: All Over the World and Other Stories

Overall, I think that this is a solid list of essential titles for anyone to start reading DC comics. So, if you can pick up a copy of this free catalog if you are curious about DC titles or even a seasoned DC reader, because it is nice to have so much information on great reads in one place.
