Re: Getting Started
The best place to start is a Tpb called WE ARE THE X-MEN. After that read, Dark Pheonix Saga, Days of Future Past, God Loves Man Kills and Mutant Genesis. Also check out the Whedon run on ASTONISHING!
Basically what has happened in American comics is people have been trying to write their own versions of Dark Knight and Watchmen for the past 20 years.
The point that comics are at now is nothing compared to where they once were. And it'll never get back there either. - Kurosawa
