So I've only been reading comics for a few months now. I decided to start reading with Marvel since I've been interested in Spider-Man, X-men etc. since I watched the cartoons in the 90's. I thought I could share a comic newcomer's thoughts on some series I have read. I have been mainly using Marvel Unlimited to read some old stuff, while reading some new stuff from my local comic shop.
-Ultimate Spider-Man #1 is a GREAT place to start with Spider-Man. I'm up to issue #90 now and I have really enjoyed it! I highly suggest starting there if you want to get into Spider-Man.
-Modern Amazing Spider-Man isn't very good. I started reading at the start of Brand New day(#546) and became extremely bored and stopped after issue 574. I skipped ahead and have been reading from the Spider-Island arc on, to get some back-story for Scarlet Spider and Superior Spider-Man.
-Scarlet Spider is definitely my favorite series so far. It has great action, and is just a fun, interesting book.
-I have also been enjoying Superior Spider-Man, it is also a decent place to start if you want to get into modern Spider-Man.
-The new Venom series is very good! It's an extremely interesting take on Venom, which is a character I have liked since I was little and watched the 90's Spider-Man show. It's a great action book and can sometimes get pretty dark which i enjoy.
-All new X-men is pretty good, but requires a little knowledge of X-men characters(I found the movies as well as some light wiki reading was enough). I do recommend reading Avengers VS Xmen beforehand though.
-I actually enjoyed Age of Ultron up until the last issue. I really enjoy post-apocalyptic themes as well as time travel and alternate dimension stories, so I enjoyed it. I found the ending anti-climatic as well as a big advertisement.
-I also enjoy the new Deadpool series as well as Deadpool Killustrated for a light-hearted series.
Sorry for the long post but I thought this might be helpful for people who want to get into some Marvel comics and maybe interesting for the rest of you! If you have any other recommendations for Marvel series I should read I would love to hear them!
