I'm planning on reading comics sometime. Any recommendations? I like mostly action stuff.
Cats act like gods, but when you are in tears they are right by your side purring. When you have a cat, you don't have to go to a movie theater, all the entertainment you need is right at home.

    Young Avengers is a great series, it's divided into 2 runs with 12 issues each. Some people have serious problem with the series because it deal with a lot of issues like lgbt people and suicide in way that maybe it shouldn't have but I think it's a great read.

    I recommend Irreedeemable, by Boom! Studios; it's a series about a Superman like hero (so basically he's op) who gets pushed just a little too far just one time too many and goes absolutely ape PIZZZAA. Highly entertaining and absolutely worth your time. If your willing to go into a bit more of the cerebral comics, Sandman and Lucifer, which are two separate comics, are both amazing. Sandman was by Neil Gaiman, and Lucifer was based on the Sandman universe, both published by Vertigo.

    Bit of an oldschool, there's a comic called Thorgal, the main character is somewhat viking but lives outside the community, has plenty of adventures, theres action, fantasy, riddles, and I can't help but add anthropology of culture. Sandman and Lucifer! Yaaaaay, in my entire life I have never met a person (irl) who read those, but theres plenty of you here! (i used search bar) Those two truly shaped me. Its undescribable. Just read it. The Rome series - very much worthwhile.

    The Hellboy Comics by Darkhorse have an art style that can be a bit hard to get used to at first but once you become acclimatized to it they're great fun, well written, and visually unique.

    If you like Star Trek and Doctor Who, I recommend getting the crossover comics. It really shouldn't work as a crossover because of course Star Trek has been referenced several times in Doctor Who as a work of fiction but it does work because they explain within the story that they're not suppose to exist in the same universe.

    There are 8 issues each with variant covers. I recommend doing your research on the variant covers before you buy. My dad got me these comics for Christmas last year and the E-Bay seller said they were all different issues but in reality two of them were issue 3 comics with different covers. I believe each issue has three or four different variant covers. Price may vary depending on the variant cover I guess because some are more rare than others so you might want to pick your cover depending on what's going to be the cheapest or just what art work you like best. Just make sure you know what you're getting before you buy so you don't end up with multiple copies of the same issue.

    Unless you're a variant collector and actually want to buy copies for all the variant covers in which case then ignore everything I just said.

    Must Reads:
    - Persepolis
    - Maus
    - Akira
    - Tintin

    That should just about cover you for an introduction to the world outside of Marvel and DC.

    If you have a lot of time the webcomic Questionable Content is actually shockingly pg and super awesome. IT starts off slow, but now it's story is focusing on gay giant lady robots so A++ would recommend.
