Recently my friend the amazing LoudlySilent asked me to join their site Comics Recap as a contributor. I was bouncing off the walls I was so excited!
My first post on Comics Recap is now available. I hope that it makes you want to pick up this comic. I decided to write about the most recent comic I’ve read which was Giant Sized Little Marvel: A v X*, this adorable comic was written and drawn by Skottie Young and is amazing. Check out the review for more info.
After my post about Silk, I have had a little bit more invigoration to write more about comics. The problem is that I’m not that well versed. I only started collecting as recently as this year. As such I have been trying to jump in on any new series that strike me. Most of what I’ve been reading has been Marvel (because that’s where I tend to gravitate when I think of superheroes), but I’ve been wanting to expand that knowledge and try other series and other creators.
That all being said, I thought I’d throw it out to the universe and ask what comics you would recommend that I try next?
I was never really that into comics. I liked the idea of them and when my grandparents used to hand them out with their halloween candy I would always stash away a couple issues for myself to read later. Betty and Veronica I enjoyed, but the Batman ones were always entertaining to me too. Aside from that, I never really reached out for comics.
Once the Marvel Movies started leaking I found my interest in them to peak. I was curious about these characters I had been watching on the screen. I wanted to see how the character differed in the comic. However, trying to jump into Captain America or Iron Man was daunting. So in the past year (primarily the past few months) I’ve been searching for a series that is just starting or at least a more recent retelling of the stories.
All that being said, I’ve found some comics that I’ve become completely addicted to.
