I have been out of the comic game for a few months now due to a tight budget. I'm able to start buying more comics now but to be honest I was getting bored with a lot I was reading. I'm more of a DC guy but will read Marvel if the creative team is doing well. Does anyone have any recommendations?
Right now I'm reading:
Marvel: All New X-Men and Guardians of the Galaxy.
DC: Aquaman, Supergirl, and Red Hood and the Outlaws.
I really recommend All New X-Men, GotG, and Aquaman. I also think Supergirl is pretty good, but it might not be for you. I'm definitely going to drop Red Hood and the Outlaws, so I would recommend against it.
· Superman Unchained
· Wonder Woman
· The Flash
· Justice League Dark
· Animal Man
· Green Arrow
· The Wake (Vertigo)
· Thor: God of Thunder
· Indestructible Hulk
· Did I mention Hawkeye?
(I’m certain there’s more good stuff coming out from Image, just not that I’m reading at the moment so I can’t personally make any more recommendations)
DC I guess you should get Batman/Superman, Aquaman, Batman, Batman and Robin, Justice League.
Here are other comic titles you don't want to miss, check out the pictures!
X-O Manowar; Valiant Comics/ type Action/Sci-fi
Shadowman; Valiant Comics/ type horror/mystery
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; IDW Comics
"Each offers a signature blend of supernatural adventure, humor, and gorgeously moody visuals. Hellboy manages to appeal to readers of all types. Those craving mystery and conspiracy will find plenty."
@kyleandrewmurdoch - Here are my three favorites at the moment. Each of these are getting rave reviews and they've all been pretty self-contained. If you're a trade paperback kind of guy, you can get the early trades for each of these on Amazon.
1. Batmanby Scott Snyder
“[Writer Scott Snyder] pulls from the oldest aspects of the Batman myth, combines it with sinister-comic elements from the series’ best period, and gives the whole thing terrific forward-spin by setting up an honest-to-gosh mystery for Batman to solve.” —Entertainment Weekly
“Bruce Wayne is a badass. The end.” —IGN, 9.5 Rating
2. Hawkeye by Matt Fraction
"One of the best and most interesting superhero books on the stands." —ComicBookResources.com
"This is a series that needs to be read." —ComicVine.com
3. X-O Manowar by Robert Venditti
"X-O Manowar is awesome. I'm not going to spend hours here coming up with wacky adjectives or ridiculous analogies to describe this [series]. It's just awesome." —ComicVine.com
"X-O Manowar is completely and totally kick ass. If you thought things would settle down and Aric would get a moment to adjust to the new time period, you would be dead wrong...The book looks fan-freaking-tastic." —IGN, 9.0 Rating
@kyleandrewmurdoch: Honestly, I was reading it for Jason alone. They did well with Starfire and Roy, but Roy started going from anti-hero to hero. Same goes to Jason. The story arcs themselves are also really bad. It's just such a waste of such a good team with so much potential. Really painful to read since I'm huge fan of Red Hood. Although the story was trash, I held hope. I also loved the art. Once the new artist came in, I dropped it. Bad story + bad art just wasn't worth it anymore. I might replace it with Nightwing and then pick it up again if it goes in a better direction.
@kyleandrewmurdoch: A new event for DC called the Trinity War is coming up. My ratings go from awesome, great, good, alright, boring.
- Wonder Woman is awesome!
- Earth 2 is awesome!
- Superman/Batman just started and is great!
- Justice League of America is great!
- Superman Unchained just started and is great!
- Justice League is great
- Batman is awesome
- Injustice is awesome
- Superman is alright
- Teen Titans is boring.
