Hello there I haven't visited this site for what feels like ages and I have had zero contact with anything related to comic books, I even missed the Avengers! (very ashamed...) but I'm planning on watching the Amazing Spider-Man in a few days.

So here I am considering getting back to the Comic book World but I have no idea where to start. The last issue I read was Detective Comics #881, yeah that long ago, so I have obviously missed a lot Flashpoint, the new 52, Fear Itself, Spider-Island etc...

So if I were to start reading comics again,what issue should I pick up? what is worth reading these days? Before my hiatus I used to read ASM, Detective Comics, Batman, the Incredible Hulk, Captain America and occasionally FF.

Help is appreciated!

@Loki9876: @Remi: Alrighty thanks for the help! I just want to ask what about ASM? Is is currently good? I last read it just before Spider-Island began and I was enjoying a lot of things in it.

Flashpoint and Blackest Night (and the pre-ludes) are all fantastic and will pretty much bring you up to date with whats happening in the DC universe.

The New 52 is still in it's infancy and Marvel are also rebooting with Marvel Now, very soon. So this is a good time to be jumping back into comics.

Avengers, Amazing Spider-Man and TDKR have all been great films, especially Avengers :) make sure you don't miss Man of Steel next year either, it looks awesome!

Scott Snyder's Batman is very good and also The Flash has been good.
