Kritika (spidersilksnowflakes) I'm not exactly new to the group but I haven't been super active...so hi!

I want to get into superhero comics, but I have no idea where to start! One of my friends said I might like Captain Marvel, but there are so many series and alternate universes and whatnot.... how does one begin??

I've read a couple of standalone graphic novels before, like Watchmen and Bone, but I haven't read any major serial comic books so I'm a total newbie to the comic world. Any help/advice would be much appreciated!

Hi Kritika! :)

I can't help you, but this thread might!

paolojackson Sagullo | 5 comments For Marvel, you can pick up right after Secret Wars. For DC you can start with Rebirth. No matter where you begin, there is going to be a learning curve. I would just jump right in. Are there any characters you like? Start with them. You can find lists of their best story arcs.

I don't read much DC but for current Marvel you should definitely check out Vision and All-New Wolverine. Matt Fraction's Hawkeye was also incredible.

Rosie B Ms. Marvel is an amazing comic for beginners. The first trade paperback is called "No Normal". It follows a Pakistani-American teenager who suddenly gets super powers and has to figure out how to be a super hero.

That sounds amazing! I'm super excited about Desis in fiction, people of south Asian descent are hardly ever in the media and it makes me feel like I fit in the fictional universe better :)

Thanks for the title also, I wasn't sure which book started which series!
