    If you are into the Marvel universe's cosmic side start reading the Silver Surfer story from the very beginning. An awesome, philosophical tale of power and servitude.
    Great art, the beginning is fantastic. the last ones a bit too modern for my taste but the story is still solid.

    If you want a bit more earthly Marvel stuff, start with the Civil War where Captain America is declared an enemy of the country and traitor. Keep on reading through The Initiative, and the Death of Captain America. Go to Secret Invasion and finish with Dark Reign. Plenty to read before, during and after these events.

    If you want something non-Marvel. Try The Walking Dead. If you don't like zombies go for Transmetropolitan, Warren Ellis' fantastic work and one of my favourites by far.

    I get mine from a thread at another forum I frequent and my local shops. U know its weird ive been collecting comics since i was a kid and after buying boxes for em i only have enough books to fill up three boxes. Thought i would had more.

    Btw check out gotham central its one of my fav books. Its about the police in gotham and how they deal with the criminals in gotham and the interference of the bat.

    Got into comic in the last 2 months, read/reading the following:

    Batman (New 52, by Scott Snyder) - The art style is THE BEST and the story is amazing
    Superman (New 52) - just started last night, not a fan of superman but I'm giving this a shot
    Superman Earth One - have to read, attracted by the gritty art
    Batman Hush - only read the first issue, gonna buy the entire volume
    All new X-men - Good art, interesting plot little to no action yet
    Injustice Gods Among Us - Interesting story crappy art

    Well that was my problem aswell since I started recently. All the ones I listed are fairly new (less than 15 issues out for all of em) so I just started reading them from #1.

    Some of them like batman had this huge crossover with 7 different series but I just ignored all those other comics and kept reading only the batman issues and I didn't miss a thing.

    Anything by Joe Madureira, in fact, hes working on Savage Wolverine right now (not sure what issue number, i think hes starting on issue #5 or 6... but its another standalone story so you can jump in on the issue hes working on.









    stuff thats just plain $#@!ing cool but sadly never finished (yet) by joe madureira

    Battle Chasers



    Also Check out Chris Bachalo's stuff. He's drawing Uncanny X-men right now (and also along with madureira and humberto ramos, is one of my favorite artists of all time)




    and of course Superior Spider-Man by Humberto Ramos (with Ramos starting at issue #6)


    Also i FULLY recommend SAGA by Brian K Vaughan and Drawn by the amazing Fiona Staples

    I really enjoy The Walking Dead comics myself. They can get away with way more stuff in print than they can on cable television. I love the concept of people with all sorts of different personalities being forced to come together and the conflict and chaos it can create, along with the uncertainty of not only having to survive in a world where zombies are a threat, but other humans as well. I recommend it. Also I'd say pick it up online because I got mine off Barnes and Noble's website for like half the price they sell it for in the store.


    As far as my other favorite comics, I love the Kick-Ass series by Mark Millar. Violent and unrefined with tons of hilarious moments..definitely not a comic for the kids. New 52 Batman (Scott Snyder) is excellent as well.

    Read superman 13-19 last night. The new artist is basically the best artist I've seen (except fro greg capullo in batman)
    I hate superman but I read them for the art


    My brain can't comprehend how overpowered everyone is in superman comics

    EDIT: btw I made a H-EL sig today for next week's SOTW
