    You should read ultimate spider-man, great to get into comics with tons of material.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.)

    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.

    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!
