I'm new to comics, but not new to reading about them. I devour wiki pages about Marvel. I've read a lot of classic fiction, Dostoyevsky, Hemingway, etc., so I enjoy stories. But I am scared that I won't enjoy comics. I've recently tried to get into a few, and here's my gripe. The New Harbinger series so far seems very unoriginal. Kid has powers. Kid has friends. Kid must leave friends to answer his calling. This seems like the stuff that has been written and re-written for years, but the comic gets great reviews with people saying the plot and characters are very original. If Harbinger is an example of these things, I don't think I'll like comics.
What do you guys suggest considering my case? Any good recs?
