Where to start with comics?

Recommended Posts

So I'm not a comic book fan...but if you wanted to introduce me to comics where would I start?

 

So far every comic I've come across has either blokes with guns or ladies who I think will probaby catch pneumonia. Is there any comics aimed at the female market or are they all male orientated?

 

help!

I found this page the other day about graphic novels featuring strong women.

It seems like a good selection. I suppose it depends what you want to read about though, I love reading Marvel and DC (I just ignore the half naked ladies) but then I do also like some quirky graphic novels that are aimed more at the female market like The Plain Janes and Ghost World.

 

I've only started reading again recently myself so it's not a massive help but it's a start until someone else can be a bit more thorough haha :)

Comic content is pretty varied nowadays and there's something for most people out there , it might be worth just going down to your local comic store and having a browse at both comics and graphic novels and whilst down there get chatting with the staff who will probably be able to advise.

That's a shame. I think quite a few have closed in recent years as people buy online, personally I prefer to buy the comic, rather than download, you can't get a downloaded comic signed.

Friend of mine reccommended I look for some steampunk comics as I like historical stuff. Did a search on pinterest and came across 'girl genius'. Which looks like it could potentially be something I'd read.

I would thoroughly recommend Y: The Last Man. The lead character is male (huge spoiler after reading the title......) but lives in a world now only populated by women. It's fantastic and really builds strong stories for all the women involved. Personally, I read it as its a fantastic comic but the story would give most women a little kick I think!

It's a strong list indeed! I always love a bit of Red She-Hulk but Captain Marvel has some great stories too. I lean heavily towards Marvel comics though.
