New 52 Reading Order Part 1

The reading order begins in the distant past and gradually catches up to present day. There are many changes to the status quo of the DC Universe with the beginning of the New 52. Most of the characters are rebooted and revamped, with the notable exceptions of Batman and Green Lantern, whose continuities remain largely intact.
