House-Keeping: As it currently stands, we at the Fantasy Comic League only count things that are identifiably the Prime DC Universe, so titles such as DCeased will still not be scored. Some Black Label books count.
After the blending of Pre and Post-New 52 histories, the new revised ruling for counting DC Heroes for tracking will be a total of 52 Appearances from their combined Prime and New Earth continuities.
We score Digital First comics when they release digitally, not when they are collected in print.
