Working on a project, but if someone asked you how they should get into comics.
I know the first question for newbies we always have for them is “what characters do u like” but is there another thing we should ask them or tell them what to do?
My dad bought a box of comics from a garage sale. I found myself in them
1. Don't worry about reading everything, most are enjoyable enough, even if you've never read a comic before.
2. How much money they have to spend. It's all well and good recommending hundreds of comics but what's the point if they can't buy that many and just want a select few.
3. Find a local comic shop. It's a good place to learn, find other people who have the same interests and support small businesses.
4. if it's specifically Marvel, recommend Marvel Unlimited. It's reasonably cheap and means you can fill any gaps in a collection.
^Wholeheartedly agree with that, and wish I came up with that lol.
I would like to add:
-It's okay not knowing something. Dont feel you need to know everything about everything to be a fan. It's ok, it's part of the journey.
What got me into comics is just 1 character. That's all what's needed, the Fandom of 1 character.
My dad is a big comic fan too, so we had a ton of comics in my house. I started off reading Asterix and Tintin before heroes tho
There is a lot of questions. Big events or small, unsignificant storylines? Team-ups or solo series? Mature themes or light-hearted comics?
Who's your favourite is the best to start though.
All the old movies. The first X-Men film and Batman the animated series/Burton films made me and even my mom to an extent realize the impact and lessons that can be told within comics.
Basically comic book characters are everywhere. So if you want to learn more about them. Especially to compare them to the movies they would read the books.
What do you think?
