Warren Ellis’ Moon Knight is a good intro. 6 issues that stand alone and work together.

The run that starts with the Warren Ellis arc seen here is really good both in quality and for bringing in new readers (the trade for that starts with "From the Dead").

I was introduced to the character from a the slightly older Charlie Huston/David Finch run that happened around the time of Civil War. Sadly, it looks like the physical trades are out of print, but I'm sure they'll reprint a collection for it in anticipation for the series.

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.)

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.

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. Reading primarily for enjoyment or encyclopedic knowledge? Collecting? Have the time/resources 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. Older comics can be an acquired taste for modern audiences, so they aren’t necessarily ideal starting points. Writers change often, characters get re-worked, and origins are re-told. Remember, there are many great characters, creators, publishers, etc. to explore.

YMMV of course, but for me the Ellis/Shavley run is great, and the Lemire/Smallwood run is a lovely jumping off point that will give you a good overview of him and his personalities and supporting players but a lot of the deep stuff in terms of character development is in older runs. Still great and the art is gorgeous. Also the Moench/Sienkiewicz is awesome IMO and doesn't get enough love. I'd probably put this and the Ellis run as my top Moon Knight stories.

I'd say if you want something quick (and recent) to get into him, go for Lemire but Ellis or Moench is probably a better overall introduction because there's more depth to the runs IMO.

Also the Huston/Finch run is good too but the above are my definite top 3 for Moonie of all.

Hey yall

Based on the FAQ I read Moon Knight Vol 1 today, and it's brilliant.

Action is amazing, Art is so cool. I'm all about it. It's liked the Batman and the Punisher but even crazier personality problems.

The only question I really have is it seems to just be individual isolated stories, each one lasting 25 pages. Does the moon knight have a meta narrative or is it all individual episodes?

I second Moon Knight for sure. If you like modern stuff start with Warren Ellis's run and then go direct from that into Jeff Lemire's (most of the stuff between can be skipped).

If you want more classic stuff I would recommend starting from the beginning with Moon Knight Bad Moon Rising. This collects all of his appearances in chronological order. At first he was a standard villain of the month, then he became a generic hero, but starting with Marvel Preview #21 and into his ongoing series he really becomes a noir style, street hero.

Looking to read a few Marvel collections without having to need too much history, looking for suggestions. [R]

Amazon has a promotion going so I was offered a free Marvel graphic novel (digital) since I purchased a physical graphic novel. I ended up going with "Marvel 1602" since it's by Neil Gaiman and seems like it is its own self-contained thing, but I'd like to branch out just a bit. I just got into Valiant so am not really looking to fall into some Marvel hole where I have to keep reading to follow and get a complete story, my wallet is already feeling the heat.

Heroes/titles I'd be interested in sampling: X-Men, Iron Man, Thor, Doctor Strange, Avengers, Spider-Man, and maybe Guardians of the Galaxy.

I'm curious about Joss Whedon's X-Men run: is that a good place to start with that one?

And I'm also curious about Civil War. But that seems like it must be a culmination of some other plot threads, is there any required reading to get the most out of that?

Warren Ellis's Moon Knight and his Secret Avengers are pretty great and don't require a lot of knowledge about Marvel history or continuity. Not only are both books self-contained stories, but each individual issue within them is also a short standalone story each with a self-contained mission or case, each with a different tone and style. I'm more of a DC guy, but these are the two marvel books that I enjoyed enough in issues to but the collections.

I vote to start with the revamped Moon Knight series written by Warren Ellis; it stands on its own VERY well, and it's also a beautifully stylish series that's badass as all hell. After the Ellis run, if you like the character, you can keep working your way forward through the Brian Wood-written run (styled after the Ellis run aesthetic but not as tightly written IMO) into the current run written by Jeff Lemire, and/or you can go back to the classic '70s-80s runs and check those out too.

Mental illness has been a long-running theme for Moon Knight, but not a consistent one. Moon Knight has long used multiple aliases and identities, and it varies whether those are deliberate cover identities for one man or are multiple split personalities like MPD / DID. It depends largely on the writer how the mental health aspects play out. The Brian Michael Bendis series looks at Moon Knight's relationship to the Avengers and has him talking to hallucinations. The Warren Ellis series focuses on the Egyptian God connection and uses fearless nonsensical dream logic in ways that remind me a lot of Delirium from The Sandman. The Jeff Lemire series has been poking at elements from many of the previous series in a metafictional examination of how much of Moon Knight's history if any was ever real.

Warren Ellis' Moon Knight is one of the best comics ever made. [R]

Amazing storytelling with minimal dialogue and fantastic art, and in only six issues, you're guaranteed to fall in love with the character and practically be begging for a movie or TV adaption. Each issue tells a compelling self contained story, kind of like Batman: The Animated Series, so it's the perfect starting point for ANYONE who wants to get into Moon Knight. The action is consistently thrilling as well, with one phenomenal set piece after another. After you finish one issue, you'll want to immediately read the next until you have none left to read.

However, after the first six issues, the writers changed a couple of times and the stories became less episodic, and although the rest of the run isn't quite on the level of that first arc, it stays engaging throughout, culminating in a finale that will leave you absolutely breathless. This is not only the definitive take on the character, but one of the most triumphant comic book runs of all time. It demonstrates the very best that Marvel has to offer in the modern age and I hope that Ellis writes for the character again someday. Until then, I'm enjoying the reasonably solid 2016 run currently going on.

I have ~$33 to spend on Amazon. What's a good comic series or event I should buy? [R]

I've read Batman The Killing Joke, Batman Year One, Civil War, Avengers vs X-men and am currently reading Secret Wars. I also have Infinity Gauntlet, but I haven't read that yet.

Any recommendations for a good event or series within the price range? I can go over $33 a bit if its good enough. I think the X-men are sorta cool, but I'm open to nearly anything.

hey guys,

i really like comics but i admittedly have only read the more famous graphic novels. that said, i am finding myself very intrigued by moon knight and would like to explore his story. any recommendations on a good starting point?

Modern day:

Moon Knight Volume 1: From The Dead by Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey is excellent. It's followed by Volume 2: Dead Willl Rise by Brian Wood and Volume 3: In The Night by Cullen Bunn, which aren't quite on the same level but they're fun.

Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev also did a fun run back in 2013 that lasted twelve issues/two paperbacks.

If you enjoy those and feel up for classic Moon Knight, you want Doug Moench's run from 1980. There's a lot of that to read, so I'd recommend starting with the Essential Collection and working from there.

Comic reading? [R]

Hi everyone. The daredevil show has really got me reading marvel comics, I've read the newer punisher series, hawkeye, and I'm currently on the immortal iron fist.

My question is what comics would be good to get a better look at luke cage, j jones, and daredevil, and perhaps all of them together... is that a thing in the comics?

Anyways thanks in advance! Also are there any other street level marvel series similar to the punisher? I just freaking love him so much.

I couldn't tell you, because I have only read the current graphic novels.

Moon Knight Vol. 1

Moon Knight Vol. 2

You can start there.

If you liked Injection you should check out the same team's 6 issue run on Moon Knight, which is collected in Moon Knight vol 1. From the Dead.

The writer of Bloodshot Reborn and Descender did 3 volumes of New 52 Green Arrow (starting at Volume 4: The Kill Machine) that are spectacular, and he's currently on All-New Hawkeye.

If you want more of the Valiant universe try Ninjak, which also recently started.

I want to begin reading comic books, where do I begin? [R]

So I've tried a few times to get into it, but it seems like I struggle to find interest when I begin reading the old old comics when they first started.

I'm interested in batman, I kind of want to get started there because i have a genuine interest so I think I'll be more inclined to read on a regular basis, but I guess I'm open to suggestions.

I love origin stories, like alot.

If you like Batman, try Moon Knight for some crime themed weirdness from Marvel.

First of all, let me turn you on to something that DC can't offer - Marvel Unlimited - it's basically Netflix for Marvel comics, and gives you access to a MASSIVE (though not 100% complete) back catalog, and new comics on a 6-month release date delay. Definitely worth checking out for $10 if you're looking to get started with comics.

As for Moon Knight, the current run is a plenty good jumping-on point. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0785154086/ref=pdlposbsdpss1?pfrdp=1944687762&pfrds=lpo-top-stripe-1&pfrdt=201&pfrdi=B0026IBXQO&pfrdm=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pfrd_r=1SFJ3XV7YQZZA7DBM942

I've been out of the comic game for... years. What's come out in the last 2 years (finished or still in continuity) that I should definitely take a look at? [R]

5 years agoOct. 16, 2014

I've enjoyed pretty much every good comic I've ever read. I mean that in the idea that it doesn't matter the subject, if it's well made, I'll probably like it.

I've read Walking Dead (to a point), I've read all of Y: The Last Man, and I have read an absolute metric feck-ton superhero comics.

I read some of the new 52 when it came out, but I think I may have bet on the wrong pony, so to speak, as I gave up on comics altogether shortly thereafter.

Anyway, I've got a fair amount of extra time with my new job, and I'd love to be able to get back into good comics, especially ones that I could download (preferably legally) onto a tablet/phone.

Thanks in advance!

1)When does Ellis' Moon Knight Trade come out? I've heard nothing but good things about it,and I'm a big trades guy. Any release date yet?

2)Hellblazer or The Sandman(Both Vertigo,pre-2000's)??I might start buying the trades/Omnibuses for one of these titles,which I've heard are some of the best comics of all time.

Maybe it was always supposed to be 6 issues? Not sure. The trade is solicited to collect the first 6 though.

Think Marvel is trying too hard to push the $3.99?

Marvel Ed. Tom Brevoort has been trying to explain the $3.99 price point and I'd like to know what people think- [R]

Enter "waiting for the trade."

Right now you can preorder Moon Knight vol 1 from Amazon for $13.67. That's probably #1-5. Assuming you don't have to pay for shipping that's $2.7 an issue. In a nice ad-free collected edition.

I think Marvel knows this. And I'd imagine thats why they get their volumes out so fast and the "must have it now" mentality is built into the price.
