If I wanted to start reading Marvel comics, where should I start? [R]

I’ve been wanting to really dive into the world of Marvel Comics, but I just don’t know where to begin. There’s so many great stories I’m sure about the heroes I currently know and love and some about the ones I’m about to meet in the MCU. Any suggestions?

Introduction to Comics

How to Get Into Comic Books (13:40) | Patrick Willems

Consider your intent/commitment. Think about your favorite shows, movies, books, etc. Do you seek quality storytelling or encyclopedic superhero knowledge? Plan to collect? Do you have the time/money to read 50 or 500 comics per character?

Don’t try to read everything at once. There’s too much. Forget about catching up, continuity, universes, etc. for now. Think of it like s olving a jigsaw puzzle one small piece at a time until you finally start to see the big picture. Older comics can be an acquired taste for modern audiences, so they aren’t always ideal starting points. Creative teams change often, characters get re-worked, and origins are re-told.

Pick an interesting character/team and seek their most popular/acclaimed stories. Focus on self-contained/complete stories. You will encounter unexplained references/characters/events—just keep reading or Wiki. Don’t let the tangled interconnectedness of shared-universe comics overwhelm you.

Discover your preferences and let them guide you. Avoid over-analyzing—just start reading. Do you prefer old/new comics? Specific writers/genres? Cartoony/realistic art? Character/plot -driven story? Explicit content? Follow these instincts. Didn’t get a reference? Make that your next read.

Where to Start? [R]

I've only started reading Comics and Graphic Novels by reading volume 1 in the "Sandman" series and the

"Apocalypse Suite" and "Dallas" series in The Umbrella Academy. I want more an am going to continue with Sandman but what's putting me off reading the big companies (Marvel and DC) is that they've been around so long they have so many series and so many issues.

Two things:

  1. Where would I start with Marvel and DC
  2. Are there any good comic series and/or companies I should start reading? (I'm liking the Dark Horse comics so far.)

So I've watched a bit of Comicstorian [a youtuber who reads comics] and I've read some IDW Comics from KissComics, and I've been thinking about buying some comics but I don't know if I have to go to a shop or is it a subscription?

I figured that this would be a great place to ask for advice.

Hello comic book fans, I am a little bit new in this whole comic book stuff, so I wanted to ask some people that surely could help me, I hope. My question is: I want to start reading DC & Marvel comics, but I don't know with which comic I should start reading and then continue. I just don't know the order. It would be really helpful if somebody could give me a right order to read comics.

I apologize if my "question" isn't really understandable. English isn't my native language.

Hello all,

I want to get into reading comics, whether DC or Marvel. I know only as much as the movies for each universe, and am unsure where to start.

I'd prefer physical copies vs digital, and am hoping you folks can guide me to at least a starting point.

That depends on what you're looking for.

Classic Deadpool with Vanessa, Blind Al and Weasel is from the 90's, and wirtten by Joe Kelly. It's basically Deadpool vol.1, Issues #1-33+ 2 Annuals. There were collected as Deadpool Classic #1-5.

Afterwards there's Cable and Deadpool team up series, it had 50 issues, all worth reading.

Then there's Gerry Duggan's run from 2012. It ended very recently.

A new Deadpool series written by Skottie Young will begin next month.

Just as the title says. I love him in both the movies, in the comic panels I have seen of his, when he crosses into other comics, and all the times he's been in animations. Now I really just want to sit and read some full on comics of his. What series should I start on?

Edit: How is the Spider-Man/Deadpool comic series? Spider-Man is my favorite super hero of all time so that'd be pretty great if it was good.

I want to get into the comics. I've always been a fan (casually). Seen the movie, played the Xbox game when it came out, enjoyed him in any guest appearances in cartoons or other comics.

He first appeared in "the new muntants" issue 98 I beleive. But that one is going to be expensive af. I'd just start with deadpool classic volume 1 it's a pretty thick book for around 10 to 15 bucks.

There are a couple of places to start:

Deadpool Classic: The orignal run by Joe Kelly. Many still hold this a the best and "truest" version of the character. The comic is a bit dated though, so it might be a bit hard for new readers to get into. http://www.amazon.com/Deadpool-Classic-Vol-Fabian-Nicieza/dp/0785131248/ref=sr12?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1456307882&sr=1-2&keywords=deadpool+joe+kelly

Deadpool & Cable: The team-up series that made Deadpool more popular by mixing him up in the overarching X-Men story. Easier readable and as you can see by the sidebar, where many people suggest you start. It's a team-up book though, sp it's not all Deadpool all the time. http://www.amazon.com/dp/078519276X/ref=cmswsu_dp

Deadpool 2012-2015: The newest complete run. Solidly written and perhaps an easier gateway drug than the original run. There are some storyarchs that many fans are not big fans of though. But it also contains one of the darkest and most popular story arcs. http://www.amazon.com/Deadpool-Vol-1-Dead-Presidents/dp/0785166807/ref=sr11?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1456308174&sr=1-1&keywords=deadpool+2012

where to start with Deadpool? [R]

Where do I start? I wanna get on something semi-current/recent. I just am not too sure where a good starting point is. I feel like I keep seeing like 4 different #1 trades for Deadpool, then things like Killustrated and Deadpool v. Hawkeye but I don't know the lead-up to those.

Any help would be much appreciated.

3 years, 8 months agoFatGuyANALLIttlecoat posted on Marvel.

Deadpool Classic Volume 1 may be the best place to start since it has the first appearance of Deadpool and 2 awesome 4 part mini-series that take place before his first true solo run. This collection also has the first issue of his solo run from 1997, which is his first "true" solo run.

Next is the Joe Kelly solo run which is a really strong little ditty. I quite liked it. I want to say it's 33 issues, which takes us to the millennium.

I'm not sure what takes place here, from 2000ish to 2004ish, and I want to know. I want to read all of the Deadpool stuff, because he is my favorite solo character, and since he's been around for just over 20 years, I might be able to read it all in a small amount of time.

After that gap is what I consider to be my personal favorite, Cable & Deadpool which is very strong, poignant, and hilarious.

After that is Daniel Way and people love to jerk each other off about how bad it was. I have heard mixed reviews, some say it starts good and putters, others say it's a Flanderization of Deadpool. I haven't read it, but I plan to.

Then you got the Duggan and Posehn run which starts here and runs up to relatively recently (I think it may have ended this year). I read the first 5 volumes over the past week and a half, and have quite enjoyed it, but I like the Kelly run and C&D run better.

If you want to read Deadpool's first appearances, I would recommend getting Deadpool Classic Vol 1. It has his very first appearance, two limited runs, and the #1 issue of his first main solo series. You'll likely be confused reading his very first appearance since it is in another series, but still fun to read.

There's a couple of different places to start.

There's the beginning, the best run, the lol-so-random run, and the current run.

They're all good in their own way. Deadpool and Cable is widely regarded as the best run of Deadpool, the Daniel Way (lol-so-random) run is when Deadpool really became popular, the current run is a good mix of Deadpool and Cable and the Daniel Way run, and the classic run is great to see where it all started and has some of my favorite stories in it.

Deadpool has no real background that's necessary to start reading his books, which makes him very accessible to new readers. His origin story is kind of fleshed out as he progressed. Check out the Deadpool hardcovers of the Joe Kelly series, Deadpool and Cable, or the current Marvel Now! run; they're the best of his series by far. He also has many short runs like Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, which are just fantastic.

Edit: To be clear, I'm not saying he has no background, I'm saying it's not overly necessary to appreciate his comics.

Just personal opinion, but Way was one of my least favorite Deadpool writers. If you're looking to spend the same amount of money and you don't already have it, invest in Kelly's series from '97. He was the best writer that Deadpool has ever had.

Any suggestions for a teenage girl? [R]

Hi! I'm a 16 year old and I want to start reading comic books. I got the newer run of Young Avengers and really liked it, but I am completely at a loss of what else to read and where to start. There's just so many! I really liked the X-Men movie, but again, there are just so many different books and story lines, it can be really confusing! Any suggestions are appreciated :)

You can either start with Deadpool Classic Vol. 1, make your way through Vol. 10 then Deadpool & Cable Book 1 to 3, then the recent run that's up to Vol. 4 (Deadpool vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.) now. You can choose to read Daniel Way's run if you want to, some people say it's pretty good for the first few issues, but it's pretty much universally hated.

Can we just take a moment and acknowledge how much depth that moment adds to Deadpool as a character? Wolverine starts yelling at Warren (arch angel) that he should fire Deadpool and Warren interrupts telling him that Deadpool has never once cashed any of the checks that Warren pays him.

Deadpool has been working for Warren for free. Think about that for a minute. All the shit he gets from Wolverine and his teammates, all the injuries he puts up with and the resources he wastes, it's all done pro bono. Why? Because this is the closest thing Deadpool has to being a hero. As crazy as he is in his mercenary work, in the end Deadpool just wants to be one of the good guys. So much so that he is more than happy to jump at the chance to work with X-force and do whatever needs to be done.

Deadpool as a character is already conflicted as he is. The man is deformed, has terrible self-esteem and in the end the only thing he thinks he's good for is to kill. But if that's the case, he's at least willing to kill for a good cause. Working for the X-men, being right there working with Warren and Wolverine, it's the only way he can be one of the good guys.

EDIT: Wow, ok so this blew up. So yea, in case it wasn't obvious I'm a HUGE Deadpool fan, and comics in general. As far as where to start with Deadpool, that's a bit of a tough question just because his stories jump around so much with different writers, and he's been around for 20+ years. The character you read now is very different from what he was like back then. But I can at least give you all some arcs that help get my admiration for that character to what it is so here goes:

  • Deadpool Classic V1 - This goes into some of his first appearances, and you get some background on the character. I especially recommend this series because you get to meet Siryn, the one person who could actually make Deadpool feel like a human being and not just a killer. You also meet T-Ray who becomes to Deadpool what Venom was to Spider-Man.

  • Deadpool Classic V2 - With this you a good feel for some of the people Deadpool has in his life, namely Weasel and Blind Al.

  • Deadpool Classic V3 - I talked about this in a comment below, you get to see some awesome character development with Deadpool when he gets told to be a hero, but he doesn't think himself good enough.

  • Deadpool Classic V4 - If you read NOTHING else, get this one. This is a MUST have for Deadpool because you get to see his origin. You see how he got his healing powers, how he got the name Deadpool and more importantly why he's in love with Death.

Those four will give most everyone a good basis for the character. From there on I would recommend Remender's Uncanny X-Force for some good insight on Deadpool in a team environment. During these issues he's mainly a side character so there's not a lot of focus on him directly, but oddly enough it brings a lot who he is as a character into focus. After that, Deadpool and Cable makes for some good reading, you get to see him juxtaposed against Cable and his ideals so it's interesting to see how he grows up in a way. Finally, a lot of people criticize Daniel Way as the low point because he tended to ignore a lot of his character in exchange for pop culture reference and just plain silliness. Way is essentially the Michael Bay of Deadpool writers, and while he isn't my favorite he does have some really fun arcs. I really liked the Deadpool Secret Invasion tie-ins because you get to see him kick ass against a bunch of Skrulls. Then some of the Dark Reign tie-ins because you get some pretty funny interactions between Deadpool and Bullseye.

EDIT2: All this shit can get SUPER expensive, so I strongly recommend to drop the $9.99 on Marvel Unlimited, even if it's just for the first month. They have a HUGE collection of back issues, and while it's still in beta and not perfect it definitely helps.

I just got done reading Deadpool vol 1, but after the last page theres still like what seems 50 other pages of other stuff, some it from obviously different artists. What is all that? Just previews of over stuff, or is it stuff I should read?

You may want to try this one to get into Deadpool. It has his first issue and a few other early appearances to give you some background.

My comic collection is pretty small, but here's what I got.

  • Fantastic Four (1996) #1 & #13
  • Marvel Tales #263
  • NFL Superpro #1-3
  • Spectacular Spider-Man #166
  • X-Men Unlimited #44
  • Green Lantern (1990) #3-4
  • Mickey Mantle #1

I also have Pearls Sells Out and Foxtrot En Masse, which are technically comic books, but not the ones you're looking for.

Anything Deadpool is good, but the core of his character is probably the 1997 run of his first big series written by Joe Kelly. It was just called 'Deadpool'. He also did Uncanny X-Men.

When you start to get into comics, you'll notice from series to series there's a set of different writers and a lot of them will change how the character comes off as.

Deadpool's a really strange character, but easily my favorite.

But in the end, anything Deadpool is pretty solid a comic as any. If you want the 1997 series in an economic way, buy the trades. Issue #1 is about $50, and any other issue is around $10-$20. They're only like 2?-32 pages each. The Deadpool Classic trades collects the first snippets in Volume 1 and issue #1 from the 1997 series, and the later volumes are all the 1997 series.

Or find them digitally.

As Fafnesbane says, the sidebar has suggestions for Deadpool here.

The Joe Kelly run is available on Comixology here in Digital format (start with #1 not #0) or for a more complete reading experience in physical form check out the Deadpool Classic volumes.

  • Deadpool Classic Vol. 1 (#1, New Mutants #98, The Circle Chase & Deadpool).
  • Deadpool Classic Vol. 2 (#2-8, -1 and the Daredevil/Deadpool Annual 1997.
  • Deadpool Classic Vol. 3 (#9-17 & Amazing Spider-Man #47).
  • Deadpool Classic Vol. 4 (#18-25, #0 & Deadpool & Death Annual 1998).
  • Deadpool Classic Vol. 5 (#26-33, Baby’s First Deadpool Book #1 and Deadpool Team-Up #1).

The problem with this route is that Deadpool Classic v. 3 and 4 appear to be out of print so it might be easier to go with Comixology.

It just occurred to me that you are very likely not in the US so the physical links I sought out are probably not that handy anyway. If where you live is expensive for American comics, Comixology is almost definitely the way to go.

For what it's worth, I'm not really a Deadpool fan but Cable and Deadpool was pretty decent, but I do think you should start with this Kelly run first to get to know the character.

Or you could always just jump in with the current Marvel Now! volume if you're not fussed about starting from the beginning. It's ten issues in so far so you could either hunt down the back issues from #1 or get the Dead Presidents trade collecting #1-6 of the current run and either buy #7-current in floppies or wait for the next trade.

I really want to get into Deadpool, where should i start? [R]

I think Deadpool is probably a character where you won't really be missing out by not getting his full history. The X-men as a whole almost demand someone going back through classic stories or at least massive Wikipedia entries to understand the twists and turns and continuity that led to this spot, but since Deadpool is mostly a 4th wall breaking, wacky character, you should be able to start just about anywhere.

If you do want to start with the earliest Deadpools, Marvel released some DeadpoolClassic trade paperbacks a while ago, but you really should be able to jump into any of the more recent series, like when the Deadpool craze really reached its peak beginning of Daniel Way's run, or the most recent Marvel Now! series.
