What are your top 10 must comic recommendations reddit read comics series :comicbooks
That's six, but other people have gone over ten, so I'll keep my list shorter. Moore's Captain Britain, V for Vendetta, Miracleman, Watchmen, Swamp Thing, and From Hell Okay, not counting mini-series, which is another list. If the last six issues of King's Vision are as good as the first six, then King's Vision Honorable Mention to Lee & Kirby's Fantastic Four, the X-Men Messiah Trilogy , Kieron Gillen's Loki saga , Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's Punisher, and Bendis & Maleev's Daredevil. By Marvels, I assume he means the series by Kurt Busiek and and Alex Ross, not the entire Marvel Universe. That would be a tad excessive as a recommendation. I have to admit after reading a lot of comics personally I find a lot of the team books boring. It could be my love of psych but I love really delving into the characters and learning a lot about them. Team books get interaction but you never get the real character building that the solo ones do ) mike_incognito44 Speedball 1 指標 2 指標 3 指標 4 年前 Daredevil: Born Again and The Man without Fear by Frank Miller . X-men by Chris Claremont . Lee/Kirby fantastic four . Watchmen . Planetary . Criminal . Lee/Ditko Spider-man . Golden age superman . Gotham central . X-statix . Byrne Fantastic four Uncanny X-Men by Chris Claremont, Dave Cockrum, and John Byrne DreddDurst Flex Mentallo 1 指標 2 指標 3 指標 4 年前 Kingdom Come : This is an epic. Alex Ross' art gives it the same feel, and it almost feels like mythology. It's amazing. DreddDurst Flex Mentallo 0 指標 1 指標 2 指標 4 年前 It's kinda similar to Suicide Squad only better. It's got even more messed up characters as well. They aren't held under control by anyone they just do their thing, which usually is the right thing but in a twisted way. Definitely my favorite team book. From what I've seen of Thunderbolts it's like that. You got some suggestions, but you should just get a Marvel Unlimited subscription for a few months. Pick a character/team/story arc and just read anything that looks interesting. $10 a month for just about everything listed and a ton more 10: A team book. Just any team book that fancies you. Seriously if haven't tried atleast one you're doing yourself a disservice. I don't read a lot but I have read JSA atleast and I love the interaction of the heros with each other. Try one. Final crisis : The best of all the crisis, Morrison does something so amazing that I can't even decipher it in a single read. It's the ultimate story, and it reflects why Superman is the greatest superhero. 4: Birthright- I've recently discovered I'm drawn to anything about/featuring a fantastical world separate from our own. Also it's about two brothers bonding after "years" apart. apocoluster Abomination 0 指標 1 指標 2 指標 4 年前 Ok thanks 🙂 any guidelines to reading marvel comics? Like any eras to avoid or timelines? Cerebus - from High Society through, let's say, Jaka's Story, it's hilarious and whip-smart and formally ingenious. Before and after that, uh, beware. Brian Bendis and Alex Maleev's Daredevil Y: The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra 5) Akira by Katsuhiro Otomo, 1982 in Japanese and 1988 in English by Epic Comics, imprint of Marvel Comics Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's Fantastic Four Djlynch2009 Booster and Skeets 2 指標 3 指標 4 指標 4 年前 12) DMZ by Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli, 2005-1012, DC Comics/vertigo, 72 issues Legit though, it's my favourite comic from the past decade or so and possibly in my top 3 comics of all time - Planetary and Swamp Thing have the top two slots, with Chew and Bone duking it out for third. I love it. BitterArsenic The Goon 1 指標 2 指標 3 指標 4 年前 Look at this guy, just dropping Black Hole into a list all casual like. The book is good but it is an order of magnitude darker than anything else on that list and two orders more messed up/ unsettling. It feels weird to have that on a list beside Spiderman and Scott Pilgrim. intrepidipertni Bane 0 指標 1 指標 2 指標 4 年前 Earthpig_Johnson Orion 0 指標 1 指標 2 指標 4 年前 * Barcaraptors Superman 0 指標 1 指標 2 指標 4 年前 BitterArsenic The Goon 0 指標 1 指標 2 指標 4 年前 One Piece- I know this last pick is kind of out of left field and we don't normally talk about manga, but the charming art style, inventive and thorough workdbuilding, strong characterization, and overall length make this feel like a real saga. Also, it's about pirates with superpowers. 9: Masks and Mobsters- Really short read. It's about what happens when a mobster kills a superhero. EDIT: Some other series that popped into my head if you want to get into some more/obscure characters rikostan Spider Jeruselem 1 指標 2 指標 3 指標 4 年前 Batman by Morrison- For celebrating the silliness of a very serious character 13) Sandman by Neil Gaiman , DC/Vertigo, 75 one special, 1989-1996 ahhh I see, I was confused. Thank you 🙂 Awesome! Oh my friend has it for me to borrow :D. TheBlackFyre Scarlet Spider 3 指標 4 指標 5 指標 4 年前 3) Bone by Jeff Smith, early issues Self-published through Cartoon Books and then Image Comics, 55 issues, 1991-2004 Timetmannetje Shocker 8 指標 9 指標 10 指標 4 年前 * Heck yeah! They really don't get enough attention! All-Star Superman- For celebrating the prime superhero in all his goofiness and wonder Edit: I screwed up and need to add a few that deserve mention: World's Greatest Super-Heroes by Alex Ross and Paul Dini Scott Pilgrim, Seconds, Lost at Sea by Bryan Lee O'Malley All Star Superman by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely Umbrella Academy by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba 7) The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, 2003, 155 issues, ongoing, Image Comics The Vision by Tom King and Gabriel Hernandez Walta use the following search parameters to narrow your results: Daredevil by Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev 15) Y: The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, DC/Vertigo, 60 issues, 2002-2008 Doom Patrol by Grant Morrison and Richard Case Secret Six is so much better you'll love it No particular order, because that would take me forever and I'd still second guess myself. Sibbo94 Captain Marvel 0 指標 1 指標 2 指標 4 年前 You can't go wrong with any/all of these! 4.SuperiorFoes of Spiderman by Nick Spencer If all of Planetery is as good as the first volume, Planetery 2000 AD. Consistently interesting-to-fascinating science fiction anthology, running for over 2000 weekly issues now, featuring Judge Dredd, which is kind of the Best Thing. Finally I see Chew getting the love it deserves All-Star Superman : This is a story that can make even the biggest Superman detractors fall in love with the guy. This is the quintessential Superhero story. Infinite Crisis : Another Crisis. This shows that we don't need darkness to create good stories. Stories don't need to be dark and edgy for the sake of it. You know what's better than one Superman? Two of them. Well, The Source in St Paul, MN had a second copy when I bought it. No idea where you live, though. Alias- For showing that noir can mesh with the fantastic, and for creating my personal favorite 21st century heroine Gotham Central by Greg Rucka and Ed Brubaker MixMasterNut Wolverine 0 指標 1 指標 2 指標 4 年前 Where do you suggest to start with marvel? Can't believe how many of you are sleeping on Locke & Key To set your flair please use the flair picker . Requests for new flair image creation is closed. Please wait for further announcements about voting for new flair images. Batman: the Black Mirror by Scott Snyder, Jock, and Francisco Francelleva Annihilation/Annihilation Conquest/Guardians of the Galaxy/War of Kings/Realm of Kings/Thanos Imperative by Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning Oh ok. I like the idea of Thunderbolts . Awesome I'll definitely check it out then! Suicide Squad is a cool idea but the execution has never really been good. 5: Deadpool- Try out Duggan's run. comic recommendations reddit I haven't finished Kelly's so I can't recommend it yet but Duggan's is fairly solid in my opinion. It's built on the character a lot. Planetary by Warren Ellis and John Cassaday As a huge Batman fan, I have no idea why I haven't read The Long Halloween yet. I hear it recommended often. I think I'm going to have to check that out. Ranking things isn't my strength, but let's say Yeah they're not exactly my favorite thing, in fact the only team book I own is Secret Six. I just feel like I should read one every now and then. Batman The Long Halloween/Dark Victory/Haunted Knight by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale Sandman- For being perhaps the most culturally significant comic, the one that arguably put the genre on the map as a legitimate art form There have been some great suggestions in this thread but I don't think any has mentioned 52 by Johns, Morrison, Waid and Rucka yet. It's a fantastic series about a year where the Trinity have a year off and it focuses on a lot of C-Grade characters. Fantastic Four/FF/Avengers/New Avengers/Secret Wars by Jonathan Hickman 3: Chew- A fantastically built up world full of uniquely powered people. Oh and Poyo, the most badass rooster you've ever seen. 6: Daredevil by Bendis- Everyone should see that Bendis can actually be good. Also Maleev on art is a can't miss. carlitooocool Jamie Madrox 0 指標 1 指標 2 指標 4 年前 8) Preacher by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillion, 1995-2000, 66 , DC comics/Vertigo Southern Bastards- For being a gritty love letter to a shitty place 11) Lone Wolf and Cub by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima, 1970-1976, 28 volumes 14) 100 Bullets by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso, 100 issues, DC/Verigo, 1999-2009 π   Rendered by PID 9852 on reddit-service-r2-loggedout-59c94dd67f-bkp7p at 2021-09-19 09:11:18.983839 00:00 running bb4d410 country code: HK. 10) Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples, ongoing, 36 issues, Image 4) Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson, Cartoon strip, syndicated from 1985 to 1995. I actually haven't heard of that. What's Secret Six? DeltaTester Kid Loki 3 指標 4 指標 5 指標 4 年前 2) The 2012 Archer and Armstrong series by Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry, 25 #0, Valiant Comics, 2012-2014 Superman: For All Seasons by Jeff Loeb and Tim Sale 9) The Savage Sword of Conan by Roy Thomas and various amazing artists some of my favorites being Ernie Chan, Dick Giordano, Barry Windsor-Smith, John Buscema, and Pablo Marcos, 1974-1995, 235 issues, Marvel Comics – NOTE: the series didn’t have to conform to the comic code Geoff Johns' Green Lantern : This man brought the GL franchise from zero. He built on the legacy that was left by his previous writers and left it at a level that I don't think any other human can. Such innovation, and so many incredible ideas. thriIIhobaggins Beta Ray Bill 8 指標 9 指標 10 指標 4 年前 * SpectacularSpiderBro Lying Cat 22 指標 23 指標 24 指標 4 年前 * 1: Wally West Flash...

Good call. dontyieldbackshield Nick Fury 3 指標 4 指標 5 指標 4 年前 I'll never understand why pre-High Society Cerebus gets such a bad rap. The first few issues are kinda clunky, yes, but once Sim starts to break out of the Conan parody there's some great little mini-arcs and early experimentation in there. SpectacularSpiderBro Lying Cat 14 指標 15 指標 16 指標 4 年前 SavioVegaGuy Savage Dragon 0 指標 1 指標 2 指標 4 年前 Astro City by Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson Ultimate Spider-Man For being an incredible decade run on THE Marvel hero, and for mixing comedy and tragedy so effectively I can't say these are the best comics ever created but these are the comics I point to when people ask why I enjoy comics so much, and why they are my favourite art form. It was really hard getting it down to just 10, so I chose to make this list kind of a "sampler" of the essentials. Here is a list of books that are just as worthy as being called "essential", imo: BitterArsenic The Goon 0 指標 1 指標 2 指標 4 年前 tesselrosita Chamber 0 指標 1 指標 2 指標 4 年前 What are your top 10 must read comics/series? I was super lucky to find Book 1 at a LCS. Books 2 and 3 in physical form are easy enough to find, but Book 1 usually was being sold for $100 a lot of places I saw it. It is one of my more prized books I own Casanova, Astonishing X-Men by Whedon/Cassaday, New Frontier, Planetary, Hickman's Marvel Saga , Morrison's Batman, Wicked Divine, , Hawkeye by Fraction/Aja, Omega Men 1) “Transmetropolitan” by Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson, 1997-2002, 60 issues, DC Comics ChickenInASuit Secret Agent Poyo 5 指標 6 指標 7 指標 4 年前 52- For showing a whole universe in essentially real time, and for celebrating the fringes of the DCU If you are a creator who is interested in setting up an AMA please see the AMA instructions in the FAQ . pacotacobell Iceman 11 指標 12 指標 13 指標 4 年前 Brian Michael Bendis - Ultimate Spider-Man 6) Hellblazer by various artists, 1988-2013, 300 issues and a couple of specials, DC Comics/Vertigo Not really. What I did was just read stories people recommend and then continue on to stories by the writers of the stories I liked. 7: Invincible- I didn't think it could be done, but a hero was built from scratch separate from the big two and it was good. "Realistic" view on what being a superhero is really like. Nothing is censored but it doesn't go out of it's way to be gory it just kinda happens... Ok maybe they do go a little out of the way but still. ChickenInASuit Secret Agent Poyo 0 指標 1 指標 2 指標 4 年前 Lord_of_Jam Fantomex 5 指標 6 指標 7 指標 4 年前 Oh I agree with you. The solos get you character development and show you what they're really like. But team books are just fun. Not everything is about in depth analysis or backstory. Sometimes you just have to read something for fun and not think "but what does it really mean". Also I believe team books show the true power of a character. The solos seem to max the powerset to 100 so they seem to not need any help. Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's Amazing Spider-Man There's a Marvel collections sale happening on Comixology and I'm pretty sure all the major arcs are in it. Finally got to buy them after acquiring in my broke high school days. I'm so excited to read it all again.

I don't know what it is but I start reading a team book for a bit and it's interesting and then like 1/4th of the way through I get bored and can't read it anymore. Maybe I'm just weird 😀 BitterArsenic The Goon 0 指標 1 指標 2 指標 4 年前 As much as I would love a physical collection, getting digital at least lets me feel better. That and it's more convenient. It's decently popular on this sub, it finished at fourth place during our March Madness competition this year.
