Default Ant-Man Comic Recommendations?

I'm new to all things Ant-Man so what are some good suggested readings? How is "Ant-Man: Season One"? I see it's available in the Marvel store and I'm thinking about picking it up since it looks like a good starting point.

I haven't read 'season one' but Marvel recently released a pretty good TPB called 'The Many Faces of Henry Pym', which includes his origin story as Ant-Man and various other issues taking you through his various alter egos (Goliath, Yellowjacket etc) and close to present day. So if you want an introduction to Pym it's not a bad buy.

The Essential collections are also good cheap ways to get introduced to characters, if you don't mind reading them in black & white. So you could try and get hold of 'Essential Astonishing Ant-Man Volume 1', just to warn you though he faces off with some pretty crappy villains in it!

ANT-MAN & THE WASP, which was written & drawn by Tim Seely, was a three issue mini series that came out in 2010-2011. Featured a team-up between the Eric O'Grady version of Ant-Man and Hank Pym when he was briefly going by "the Wasp" in memory of his dead ex-wife. It was pretty good and shouldn't be hard to find.

Naturally, THE IRREDEEMABLE ANT-MAN by Robert Kirkman is also pretty good, introduces the new Ant-Man, Eric O'Grady.

I don't remember where it was, the Avengers, Marvel Triple Feature, ....something. But there was a story that was about Hank and his ant friend 'Nash' (the ones named Crosby and Stills were already deceased). Nash was one of the ants that was a step or so above average ant intelligence, and Hank actually became friends with him. It was a cool story.

Anyone looking forward to Ant-man's role in the upcoming Marvel NOW FF series?

I also recommend Avengers #161, for anyone who thinks Ant-Man's powers are "dumb", or "useless"...

Ant-Man season One isn't that good. Avengers Origins which is great Avengers 161 is great issue when Pym takes on the Avengers single handedly and holds his own.

Anyone read Age Of Ultron 10:AI?

I have been enjoying Waid writing Hank Pym in Daredevil and he wrote him pretty well in this issue as well.

I personally enjoyed Ant-Man: Season One. It's not the best that Season One has to offer, but it's good nonetheless.

You're probably better off waiting until about one month before the movie comes out. That's when marketing will be kicked into full gear and there will be old graphic novels and comics re-issued that are no longer in print right now. They seem to have done that quite a bit with Iron Man.

That Essential Ant-Man Vol. 1 (black & white) that someone recommended is a pretty penny on Amazon - most likely because it's out of print as well.

Honestly, the real problem is that Ant-Man (with all due respect) is like a third-tier, even fourth-tier Marvel character, lol. You'll be hard pressed to find ANYTHING with him, simply because there probably isn't that much floating around out there. There are three local comic shops near where I live (and they're good ones), and they have absolutely NOTHING.

I would wait about a year. Until then, I personally believe that Season One is a good starting point.
