Comic Recs

Because I am not nearly posting enough and because I have literally nothing of interest to say. I'm going to rec some comics with little or no explanation as to why. Because I've been reading a lot of comics lately.

These are all currently ongoing:

1) Hawkeye

Actual perfection. Also feels really indie for a comic that's by Marvel. Bonus: Kate Bishop (yay!), some of the nicest panelling ever and a dog that's going to get his own issue.

2) Journey Into Mystery (646-)

Lady Sif is a badass, that is all.

3) Captain Marvel

(#9 is the recommended jumping on point for new readers.)

4) Young Avengers

Okay, so there's only been one issue so far, but it's wonderful and it's going to get even better; there's no slut shaming (yay!) and an openly gay couple who are sweet and loving and actually show it on page (yayyy!).

5) Saga

Think: Star Wars meets Lord of the Rings meets Romeo & Juliet and you're still not quite there. It's the sort of comic I never thought I'd enjoy reading, even if a lot of it makes me go 'ew'.

And oh, alright, a comic that has ended but I'll never miss an opportunity to rec it.

6) Journey Into Mystery (622-645)

A comic that lures you in with the wacky hijinks of a boy, his best friend, his dog and his bird (including re-homing puppies then going for milkshakes) and then rips out your heart and stomps all over it.


There are others I'm currently reading which I haven't quite decided on (apart from Avengers Arena, just noooo). And a whole plethora of finished comics but that's another post for another day.

Agree? Disagree? Don't care? Want to rec me something?
