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 solving a jigsaw puzzle one small piece at a time until you finally start to uncover 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. Most stories are relatively standalone/self-contained. However, you’ll eventually encounter unexplained references/characters/events—just keep reading or Google them. Don’t let the tangled interconnections of shared-universe comics distract from the story in front of you.

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

Hey everyone, I'm a new reader looking for recommendations. [R]

March 1, 2020

I've watched a lot of movies, cartoons, tv shows, games etc. But my only experience with the actual books is a copy of Kingdom come, which I only browsed through, (I bought it for a cheap price because liked the artstyle) Ill read it sometimes soon.

I'm looking for a good self contained stories, preferably short.

*I usually prefer the lesser known but fun characters over the A-lister.

*I'd rather read about street-level character like green arrow or red hood, then a god like character (maybe with the exception of shazam, he seems great. Maybe the flash too)

*morally-gray characters are more than welcomed.

But I also enjoy epic large-scale stories with a large cast of characters. So really, I'd be happy to hear any recommendations.

Also, I'm opened to suggestion about Vertigo, if You have any.

One last thing, I heard about a book called multiversity which contain stories from many different universes, which sounds great, would you recommend it for a newcomer as a good introdaction to the multiverse?

Edit: If you read the entire thing, thank you for your time.

There are two main approaches to superhero comics:

  • following a fan-made "master order" like those at ComicBookReadingOrders, CMRO, or ComicBookHerald. This is for readers that prefer checklists, chronology, collecting multiple series/books and swapping between them during reading, and ensuring they know every detail, origin, backstory, power, character bio, and major event before they're referenced. Keep in mind both companies have catalogs with 45,000+ comics, and each comic has varying interconnections/dependence/relevance/importance to one another. It's a much larger up-front commitment than just picking up a book on a shelf, but that's the trade-off you make to satisfy completionist/linear storytelling compulsions.

  • forgetting all about continuity, timelines, and universes, picking a few characters/teams, and reading their most popular/acclaimed stories (e.g. Iron Man Extremis for Iron Man) regardless of where they "fit" into some larger picture. This is the looser, more casual, and my recommended approach for all new readers. Contrary to popular belief, superhero comics don't really have one large overarching story; they're actually comprised of many small stories that only sometimes remind readers that they share the same universe. In that sense, a story from the 1960's could have ZERO connection to a story from the 2010's. Further, a story made in 1999 could have ZERO connection to another story made in 1999. Each writer decides how much they want their story to reference other stuff or be completely standalone. So, for the most part, you can really start anywhere. And, if you're going to start anywhere, why not start with the best stuff? A lot of new readers come in expecting to read 10,000+ comics and burnout a few months later after they realize how much time/money/effort that requires (and you're essentially forced to read D-tier stories just because they're part of some fan-made reading order). Choosing new books with this approach is more organic/mood-based. Instead of moving on to the next book on a checklist, you think about what genre/character you're in the mood for or if an unexplained character/event reference seemed interesting enough to explore further—you're always reading something you actually want to read.

Regarding ComicBookHerald, try clicking the section titled "Beginner Guides" and then "Where to Start With DC Comics In 2020". There's some writing that explains a bit of what I mentioned above (e.g. "there is no definitive episode 1"). Usually, it's best to narrow your reading down to a few characters/teams at a time. More importantly, you just need to start reading acouple stories yourself so you can see just how unimportant/irrelevant some series are to one another. The "interconnections" are much less frequent than you'd think, making most stories relatively self-contained and "reading orders" moot.

If you haven't already, check out the Reading Guides/Recommendations in the sidebar. Here are some of my new reader recommendations (just start anywhere):

[Question] Why are comics so hard to follow? And how do I follow them [R]

2 months, 3 weeks agoTigertemprr posted submission on DCcomics.
Jan. 5, 2020

I'm a comic fan and I've got a variety of books, notably the complete metal run and knightfall omnibus set but in reading the metal I find references to seven or eight other stories that all tie to other stories and it's all big and complicated and I don't actually know where to start and what's important to read and what's not.

So my question is Which events are the important ones? ((ie flashpoint, the crises) but what about the button, doomsday clock, court of owls, death of the family etc))

And where should I start? Ideally I'd like to start as early as possible in the chronology, and work my way to the present day with events like dceased and year of the villain but if there's a better place to start then I'm open to suggestions

Edit to add, since when did plastic man become an egg (and to boot a seemingly god like entity)

Consider what you're getting into (superhero) comics for: encyclopedic knowledge of lore/history/plot/feats or appreciating the craft/style/quality of talented storytellers (e.g. writer's voice, artist's vision). Do you care more about "Superhero X did Y thing at Z location" or "artist used close-ups and writer used natural dialog to create intimate atmosphere"? These aren't mutually exclusive, of course, but knowing how you lean can help with choosing an approach = easier time jumping in. For example, if you're more interested in encyclopedic knowledge, have you considered just reading wiki summary articles, character bios, or watching "comics explained" videos? That'd be easier than trying to collect/organize/read tens of thousands of comics.

Which events are the important ones?

This question, for example, has different answers depending on how you define "important". Which is more important: memorizing decades of comic history in chronological order OR just feeling like you've enjoyed the story in your hands regardless of its place in a larger picture? The former will obviously take more time/commitment/money.

Event/crossover comics are obviously more steeped in relevant/current continuity spanning multiple series/characters/storylines which makes them come off as "big and complicated" and less accessible to new readers. A "solo" series, like Batman, often feels more focused and requires less context found in other series. Some stories will have strong connections to other stories and some will be relatively standalone. A good rule of thumb is that when a new writer is hired for a series, it will have a new story too = starting/jumping on point. This is also called a "run" (e.g. Jeff Lemire's run on Green Arrow is smooshed between two other writers but still feels like it's own story).

I personally encourage new readers to drop the compulsion to read decades-old shared-universe superhero comics "in order" and instead learn to "ride along" with (or ignore/Google) references they don't understand. Pick a few characters/teams you're interested in and look into their most popular/acclaimed stories. Alternatively, you can refer to websites like ComicBookHerald and ComicBookReadingOrders for long lists.

This sub's sidebar has suggested reading per character and in general. Here are some of my starter recommendations for new readers (just pick one and start reading!):

So, you've read those books, but, more importantly, what did you like/dislike about them? Did you notice art/writing/characters you liked more than others? Was there a tone/theme/story-line you'd like to see continued? Pay attention to these details because they help inform/guide you towards the next book to read.

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.

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.

Pick an interesting character/team and seek their most popular/acclaimed stories. Focus on self-contained, complete stories in one corner of the universe. There will be unexplained references/characters, just persevere or Wiki. Don’t let the tangled web of shared-universe comics overwhelm you. Think of it like solving a jigsaw puzzle one small piece at a time until you finally see the big picture.

Discover your preferences and let them guide you. Don’t get stuck preparing/over-analyzing, just start reading. Do you like/dislike old/new comics? Specific writers/genres? Cartoony/realistic art? Familiar/weird concepts? References/self-contained? All-ages/mature content? Follow these instincts. Didn’t understand a reference? Maybe read that next.

Hi, I'm new to comics and I'm confused on where to start with Batman for Rebirth. [R]

Hi, so I'm just getting into reading comics, what is the best Rebirth batman book to start with? From what I can tell. there are three books, batman, detective comics, and all star batman. What book is most crucial to read? Or is there an order they should be read in? Also any suggestions for good rebirth titles would be awesome too. Right now I'm starting with superman and action comics.

What book is most crucial to read?

"Crucial" can mean something different for everyone. There are even some people who don't even bother reading the newest stuff (Rebirth) because they're still combing through 70+ years of older comics.

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.

Discover your preferences and let them guide you. Don’t get stuck preparing/over-analyzing, just start reading. Do you like/dislike old/new comics? Specific writers/genres? Cartoony/realistic art? Familiar/weird concepts? References/self-contained? All-ages/mature content? Follow these instincts. Didn’t understand a reference? Maybe read that next.

[Discussion] How do you start reading comics? [R]

So I have been wanting to get into reading comics for a while now but I don't know how to start. How is everything linked what do I start reading. Do I need to read the older stuff how are different comics connected (crossovers and other stuff) how am I suppose to start reading it feels like it's just to much and I don't know where to start

Edit: Seen a lot of people tell me to just start reading about a character I like. The one I like the most is flash. Doesn't matter if its wally, barry or someone else what would be a good place to start with flash?

Edit2: I think I will be reading the rebirth flash and titans because they are the ones I think look the most interesting.

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 solving 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.

Which (DC) Comicbook is the best to start with? [R]

So I've seen many Comicbookmovies and TV shows, but I've never read a Comicbook before. So my question is, which Comic books are the best to start with? At the moment I'm mostly interested in Batman and The Flash and maybe Green Arrow. I'd be happy if you could suggest me something.☺️ BTW I do have some basic knowledge about these characters since I've seen many movies and shows, but please act like I know nothing at all😁

Edit: Thanks a lot everyone, I really appreciate your help 💪
