Stop everything! Go read these comics

With some truly great titles out there, and apps like Comixology making them easier to read then ever, there’s never been a better time to be a comic fan.

But with so many choices, what exactly should you be reading? Particularly for comic newbies it can be a little daunting searching through mounds of comics, whether that’s in your local brick-and-mortar, or on the virtual comic rack. Luckily, reading comics is part of my job, so I was all too happy to scour the four-color archives for the cream of the current crop.

There are superheroes, flesh-eating zombies, and, err, time-stopping intercourse — all of them read just as well on paper or your iPad screen. Personally, I’m a stickler for physical books, although digital ones are looking better all the time, and they’re continuing to explode in popularity.

But ultimately how you choose to consume your comics is a personal choice. Just so long as you read ‘em.

So get reading!
