Over the last 5 years I've become an avid comic book reader. What inspired it, I'm not sure, but I'd gone from a passing interest in X-Men (I mean, how cool is Wolverine), to religiously attending local comic book conventions. I generally stick to the stuff I pick up from the conventions, which consists of mostly local and independent artists.
However, over time, people have recommended, or I have stumbled upon, a few mainstream titles. Here's a list of some of the best:
- Y: The Last Man
If you're an adult who is looking to get into comics, I'd suggest picking up almost any title from Vertigo and giving it a read.
