Enjoy! Spider-Man: Blue is amazing.
You should read ultimate spider-man, great to get into comics with tons of material.
Good luck! That run of supergirl is amazingly awesome hope you enjoy it.

I'm going to go with the opposite direction everyone else is -- read the first 100 issues or so of Amazing Spider-Man. The Stan/Steve/John run. It's archaic, but it has a definite energy to it. It'd never work like this today, but you can totally tell why it worked in the 60s, and it's the basis for everything. Like, you'll never fully understand why Spider-Man occasionally has to lift garbage off his back while thinking of his loved ones without reading Amazing #33.
Ah Spider-Man blue is sooo good. Oh to read that for the first time, jealous
See you're a Spidey lover as well, I strongly recommend Superior Spider-Man and Renew our Vows. Renew our vows takes place in a different universe where Peter is married to MJ and they have a daughter called Annie. Also if you enjoy Spider-Gwen, try out Silk and Spider-Women that came out around the same time, they have a fun universe cross-over
If you haven’t read it yet I recommend the New 52 Batman run starting with Court of Owls. Really amazing stuff
Hope you enjoy it. I use Comixology as well. I love it. What device are you using to read the comics?
Check out Ultimate Spider-Man and Ultimate X-Men. I flew through those, they were so good. Also, loved Superior Spiderman (Doc Oc in Peter's body. It sounds silly, but it's amazing). Not sure if you like star wars, but the most recent Vader run was brutal and amazing.
Good pics for spidey, blue and brand new day are very good
For Batman I’d recommend Batman Year One,The Long Halloween and Dark Victory. Great stories of Batman’s early years, you’ll be able to see the influence on Nolan’s Batmovies
Definitely going to go buy death in the family now, thanks for the reminder
Great books! Make sure you don’t only read superheroes comics, there are many genres of comics that are amazing.
Look into great graphic novels like Blankets, V for Vendetta, This One Summer... and sci-fi series by Image Comics. If you really want to know which comic of our age will be remembered as the masterpiece, don’t miss “Saga” by Brian Voughan and Fiona Staples. It’s gold.
Death in the family is a really great read!
If you're willing to go outside of marvel and DC I would highly recommend Warren Ellis work. He is by far my favourite writer and has a ton of great stories you can delve into. The most obvious would be Trans-metropolitan (which is technically still DC) or The Authority if you want something a bit more meaty. However for a first timer to Warren Ellis (If you are a first timer) I would suggest something like Supergod.
Also he did a run of astonishing X-men after the Whedon run (which was awesome), but I haven't read it so I couldn't say for sure if it's good or not.
Love the spider-man though! Gotta try out Superior Spider-man too that series rocks.
Blue and Supergirl are fun reads. I really like Kelly's run with Kara.
Good luck, and welcome!
Have a free comic. I wrote it, so I’m biased, but I think it’s pretty good:
Congrats and good luck, you are entering a world of wonders! May I ask what app you use to download and read comics please? I have never tried them and want to jump in this train!
If you dig Blue as much as I do, I strongly suggest heading down the Loeb/Sale rabbit hole:Batman: Year One (not Loeb/Sale, but sets up...)Batman: Long HalloweenBatman: Dark VictorySuperman: For All SeasonsHulk: GrayDaredevil: YellowCaptain America: White
What app is this?
This looks like comiXology, if it’s not unlimited you should definitely consider grabbing it!
I strongly recommend the J.M. Straczynski ASM run, Astonishing X-Men, Saga, Invincible and the New 52 Batman. But really it's up to you. Hope you enjoy your reads and keep them going!
You've got your hands full for a bit, but consider Kraven's Last Hunt on your list when you free up space. Awesome Spidey story from the black suit days.
I think the problem is that Peter doesn't spend enough time looking at her eyes.
(10 years later) Oh damn, they’re actually blue!
“So Norman Osborn was the Brown Goblin!”
Partial blame on the colorist.
Clearly Peter was away on vacation, and Spider-Man Noir was covering for him.
You're right, it is pretty nifty
SPOILER FOR COMIC FROM 1963 This is the one where Spidey defeats Sandman with a vacuum cleaner. Best villain defeat ever.
Pretty nifty indeed, get it valuated / graded and then you may have a very good 2019
Where did you find them?
Worth thousands in mint condition, still a few hundred in its current condition. If the Captain Americas/Iron Man/Avengers are from the same period there may be some key issues in there worth a lot. Could you lay them all out and take group photo? I could help identify key issues for you. The number isn’t as always as relevant as what happened in the plot.
Whoops! It looks like you forgot the hyphen!
The name's Spider-Man, and don't forget the hyphen!

It’s worth about $2500 in 7.0 condition - and if you keep holding it like you are in the picture it will be worth about $700 less with thumb nail imprints and dents so I suggest you handle it more carefully
I would guess Balder because of the purple and the fur cape but the helmet is different.
I don’t know but obviously he’s been doing squats since the day he was born.
The armor looks like Bor's.
First thought is that it's Balder, like it's clearly an asgardian and Balder (as far as I can remember) is the only other one asides Thor who wears a winged helmet... also it kinda fits him because Marvel has a bit of a habit of trying to make Balder into something more than he is before giving up. (Like he is technically the 2nd greatest hero of Asgard following Thor.)
I remember Sigurd being played up a lot, both in this one shot and as part of All New. Not sure if it was ever stated that this was him, but kinda always assumed it was?
Noticeably asgardian. Which series is that
Looks like Bor just looking at that helmet but maybe I’m wrong. 🤔
2 page spread, no clear indication of who it is.
How is Lady Mechanika?
Man I wish I had the time and friends for Pathfinder. Have you ever heard of the Glass Cannon podcast? Best real play podcast out there and their running the Giantslayer AP. If you haven't checked it out I can't recommend it enough.
Your fourth Locke & Key is bothering me, but that’s a pretty respectable collection.
You need to get the rest of Rumble. So much fun.
Nice! How is East of West and Doom Patrol?
About time we see some more Valiant in one of these!
Keep reading Charles Soules Swamp Thing!
What did you think of the new 52 Wonder Woman run? It’s one of my favorites.
Where did you get those plastic (?) holders for the individual issues?
One of those was my first superhero comic ever. I was usually reading things like Archie and assorted spinoffs but my uncle had that MCP mixed in with his Archie TMNT books. I remember the first page since it was a naked Tiger Tyger on the bed and hairy ass Logan smoking. Pretty sure that very scene is up there on that cover that looks like a crystal ball.
Marvel’s deluxe editions have been doing that for about two years now and they almost always look great.
Would love it if DC started following this trend as well.
Secret invasion has one of the coolest ones for sure
The disavowed costume in question, by Jim Lee
I think I like the Bronze Age version better but the new one is nice too.
Paul Smith! Has he been active recently? Was a huge fan of his 80s X-Men run as well as Leave it to Chance
I quite liked her look in the 90s Legionairres print. No idea where this old outfit was from.
New digs look nice, though!
