    This is a great time to get into comics–especially with digital comics being a thing…especially with a company like Marvel having a super service that houses a TON of back comics (wish Valiant and Image did the same)–I didn’t get back into comics until 2008 when I found a Marvel graphic novel left on the bus. It was book 3 and like you I have a hard time getting into ANYTHING if not from the beginning of a story arc or series.

    A few years prior I had a lot of down time and got back into manga, but by 2008 I’d gotten tired of manga because a lot of it seemed…samey to me. You know, extraordinary teens doing extraordinary things while attending a normal school/extraordinary school in a normal city/town or extraordinary city/town with other extraordinary teens. I read it anyway and started getting other graphic novels (in order) via the public library branch and was amazed by the stories being told and how much I was missing. Like even stories that people who have been read already and universally panned I enjoyed a ton because it was all pretty much new to me–granted I was reading stuff months after publication.

    Great, great article! I really enjoyed it!

    ..also Ms. Marvel is great!

      Thanks! I love Ms. Marvel so much, I also should’ve mentioned the public library which is the main way I have been reading Saga and Y: The Last Man. Unfortunately, caught up on Saga TPBs right now but I have a lot more Y: The Last Man to get through as well. I never got into manga much, Bayana reads Naruto but yeah there is so much good stuff out there now!
