There has been a LOT of threads scattered around Comic Vine lately all asking the same thing:  Where do I start?   A good place to start is Babs' Brutally Honest: New To Comics? video!

Long Halloween & Dark Victory (by Jeph Loeb & Tim Sale, early stories)
Death In The Family (death of Robin)
Killing Joke

I've been redirected by a moderator to here so see if anyone can help :)  I've noticed all the great reviews that Hickman's run on Fantastic Four has been getting, and I love pretty much everything that he's written, so I'm looking to start reading the book. I remember reading somewhere that it might be a good idea to read the Dark Reign: Fantastic Four TPB first, but I've seen quite a few bad reviews for it. So my question is do I need to/should I read it, or can I just ignore it and go straight to

This is one group again that I dont know much about, only the little I glanced from the Wikipedia.
Should I start buying it directly now from issue two...or maybe read some TPBs to know the characters better?

Hey guys, 
I've been a casual comic fan for a while, started with Ultimate Spider-man and have collected all the trades up to Ultimatum. Couple of years ago I got Civil War and some of the collections, and also Captain America #1-25. 
Recently I've decided to start reading a lot more, so got all the Captain America trades (up to reborn) and Planet Hulk omnibus just because it sounded like a cool idea.  
I would like to get caught up with the marvel arcs since Civil War (through trades), but there's so much stuff and I'm interested in all the characters (except spider-man). I have a wish list to work my way through, can I get some advice on read order, if I'm missing anything, if some of them aren't worth reading and if they are all good points to jump on. I'm obviously not going to buy them all at the same time.
They are all trades found on Amazon UK. 
World War Hulk 
Invincible Iron Man (#1-19) 
Thor 
Secret Invasion (maybe the Infiltration trade as well. I'm not sure about these two because it seems to have bad reviewers but looks sort of important to the marvel universe) 
Messiah Complex -> Messiah War -> Utopia 
Dark Avengers  
The List
Siege 
 
Thanks for any help, I'm asking quite a lot >.<.

Speaking of trades, big important question.
I'm looking for two CLASSIC Spider-man stories to buy in trade, not the stuff coming out these days. I'd like to know what a Spider-man fan would recommend picking up. I've thought about Kraven's Last Hunt, but hmmmmm what do you think? Also bear in mind that I do enjoy lengthy writing styles, as I don't want to just fly through a bunch of well drawn action pages and finish the book in the time it would take to put down one Claremont comic.

#13 Edited by Tainted-Cell (299 posts) - - Show Bio

 
Hate to be a bother, but I also don't want to start another thread asking for advice. Can anyone point out some good classic Spider-man story-arcs collected in trade? Talking pre-Maximum Carnage.

#14 Posted by scourgexlvii (124 posts) - - Show Bio

I've been out of comics for the better part of a decade, and I want to find a good spot to start back again. Mostly, I'm tired of dark, and gritty comics, which was actually one of the reasons I stopped reading, so I'd like something, if not lighthearted and humorous, at least not dark, or morose. I've read a bit of new Blue Beetle, and am still looking to pick up some more trades of it, perhaps, but since it has been canceled for a while, and has no real chance to come back any time soon. I've also read the first 12 issues of power girl, but with the creative team I've known and loved has left, I don't really want to continue on with it, at least until I hear more reports on it, but I don't really like the new direction it seems to be going in. I tried 52, but a combination of the fact that I wasn't familiar with much DC before I left comics (I was a marvel fan for the most part), and I didn't really know anything in DC since, I guess, 2002, so I didn't know about some of the stuff it mentioned, and it alienated me a bit. I want to read deadpool, but when I started with his series, it was a bit harsh and abrasive in its delivery, so if there was a less abrasive book with similar humor I'd like to see it.

This may sound sarcastic, but I promise it isn't... but #1 really is the best place to start.  A lot of Fables has been collected in trade paperbacks, so that's probably your best bet.   Check out the Fables volume page where Aztek has provided links to the various trades, starting with Legends in Exile.
  

@Zniperking said:

Doctor Strange: The Oath is a 5 part limited series that is set a few years ago, but very sneakily tells you his origin story.  It's a great place to start.  I also really enjoyed the recent Strange 4-part mini by Mark Waid. 
   

@N7_Normandy : X -23 = X-23: Target X & X-23: Innocence Lost.  Then the New X-Men issues after the House of M (issue 21 onwards), and of course the recent X-Force.

So I have the first two volumes collecting Grant Morrison's New X-Men and will soon have the third and final one, and I also have Messiah Complex and the books that follow on from that (Utopia, Nation X). Seeing as though I will soon have finished Morrison's work, I'm wondering what books I should read that came out between his stuff and Messiah Complex. I mainly read non-superhero stuff and after having read Messiah Complex and Messiah War I'm not really interested in X-Force or X-Factor, so if anyone could recommend good books in that period which focus more on the "proper" team, that would be great. Thanks in advance.

#26 Posted by InspiringMuffin (124 posts) - - Show Bio
@megacomicslover: I think a good start would be the JSA series that started under Geoff Johns in 2007.  Starting Issue. It has a good introduction to the characters, and the Gog arc is particularly good. It helps that it ties in to Kingdom Come, which is a classic.

@N7_Normandy: For Green Lantern, I can't help but recommend the Sinestro Corps War. It's a great arc. If you're really looking to get into what's going on now, I suppose you could just read Issue #29 and on if you want the origin story AND the lead in to the current time. You can skip the origin story if you know it really well, but I found it to be a good read, as I wasn't terribly familiar with Green lantern before Rebirth. Again, Sinestro corps war was easily one of my favorite arcs, I really recommend it. 

@scourgexlvii: It might be a little dark, but for sheer humor, I found that I'm liking Chew a lot. If you're looking for a completely blood-free book, this isn't it, but it's got humor and action. It's really off-beat, so that helps: Also, the first TPB is 10 dollars, which is pretty tough to beat. If you're looking for good clean action that isn't grim and gritty, I've been loving the current Fantastic Four run with Hickman. And for another recommendation: Guardians of the Galaxy, the current run. It's got great moments of humor and action, and it avoids taking itself too seriously.
 
Hope this helps, folks!

I would say Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men cuz is somewhat of a contituation of Morrison's New X-Men and the House of M cuz that story arc was somewhere in between his run on Astonishing

Ok, let's see.
 
 

Fantomex

Please recommend some good stories where  N7_Normandy can learn more about this mysterious mutant.


 
New X-Men is the go-to series in search for good Fantomex stories, since it was the series that introduced the character, courtesy of Grant Morrison. He appeared prominently in the New Worlds TPB (more accurately, New X-Men # 128-130), Assault on Weapon Plus (# 139-145), and was present during Planet X (# 146-150).
 
He returned during the relatively recent
Nation X storyline, as well as the Dark Reign: The List - Wolverine, one-shot. 
 
 

Magneto

Please recommend some stories for  ScipioAfricanus who wants to read about the Master of Magnetism.  


One of the things with Magneto is that he resonates strangely with people. He's equally effective as a ruthless, but charming, idealistic villain, or a noble anti-hero. So, Magneto as depicted in the following stories is not consistent, but, the beauty of the character is his different facets through the years. The following is a list with him mostly being the latter, rather than the former.
 
Magneto: Testament, is a great recent mini-series about Magneto's early years. It's a nice starting point for the character, as it vividly illustrates the whys and wherefores that came to shape Max Eisenhard into Magneto ("Magneto" never actually appears).
 
Uncanny X-Men # 150 is also very good, as Magneto comes to draw a line between his life as a villain and ponder on if he actually became what he always abhorred.
 
Uncanny X-Men # 200 features the trial of Magneto, which is a turning point for the character as, not only he faces the consequences of his prior evil deeds, but eventually Xavier wants him to become headmaster of the Institute, and teach the New Mutants. 

God Loves, Man kills
- Magneto stands with the X-Men in their quest against the fanatical William Stryker.

Age of Apocalypse
- All things considered, I view this is one of the penultimate Magneto stories. It's basically a giant "what if?" but it works to near perfection, and Magneto is in its core, as founder and leader of the X-Men in honour of his fallen friend, Charles Xavier, against the forces of Apocalypse, who has dominated humans and mutants alike. 
 
Nation X - I included this, not under the belief that it was such a great story, but because it will help people catch up with Magneto's current status, and, as far as Magneto is concerned, Fraction did a good job capturing the driving force and internal struggle of his character.
 
Memorable stories with the character being a rogue would be
X-Men: Mutant Genesis, Fatal Attractions, X-Men # 112- 113, and Planet X (which takes it to the extreme, so it should preferably be read within context, otherwise it makes no sense).
 

 

Ultimate Fantastic Four

courtney12490  wants to know if #1 is the best place to start.  



 
Pretty much, yes. The Ultimate Fantastic 4 have made various appearances in other titles (Ultimate Spider-man, Ultimate Extinction, Ultimate Power), but this is their core volume and the obvious choice for someone who wishes to read more of them.

I haven't read Ultimate X-Men, I was too afraid to, just in case I didn't like it. I love Ultimate Spidey too (I have hardcovers 1-9, so I haven't read the last 4 arcs), but the real Ultimates (1 & 2) are just unbeatable as far as the Ult. verse goes. :)

Have no fear in picking up Ultimate X-Men. It only started to fluctuate 20-30 issues before the end, but it was a good read prior to that.
 
I love Ultimate Spider-man and Millar's Ultimates a great deal, so I can't really choose between them, especially since they are radically different in style.

I enjoy the Avengers, but it's a fun comic, mostly. No real depth to it, and that's fine, because it's still worth the read, but it's not up to the standards Millar previously set with his Ultimates.
 
I haven't read Ultimate Comics Spider-man in a while, the rt has put me off to it. I do intend to catch up, though.

I didn't mind Cash, but I begin to fear we'll end up with ten different versions of the Hulk running rampant in the Ultimate universe, much as they do in Earth 616.
 
Ghost Rider was great all the way through.

The Long Halloween, Transmetropolitan, Hellblazer. I'm a Marvel and Deadpool fan and I liked them all. And of course I recommend it in nearly every thread, so: All-Star Superman.
