View Full Version : I'm new to comics, where do I start???

I am a big GI Joe figure collector, but I haven't been into the comics. After going to this last convention, I want to get started into the comics. What are the differences between the different comics? And which ones should I buy? Any help or suggetions would be appreciated.

I'm looking for comics to read & understand more of the storyline. Not really concerned with collecting for any value.

For sure start with the old Marvel series written by Larry Hama. Start wherever you want; it's easy enough to pick up on the storylines in the middle of an arc. The special missions series were usually self-contained stories, so you might want to start there if you are concerned with starting in the middle of a storyline.

The Larry Hama original GI Joe series is just fantastic...that series and the old Kubert-drawn Sgt. Rocks are like comic book gold to me :)

Despite myself I even grew to like the Haunted Tank series as well.
