If you follow me on Twitter, you know I’ve been talking about comics a lot lately. My dream goal is to open a comic shop in my little New Zealand town since the closest shop is over four hours away. Until then I have to rely on digital services like Comixology and online ordering. It doesn’t come close to the feeling of browsing a comic shop and seeing all the art for yourself though. From following sites like Comics Alliance and the Mary Sue and creators like Kate Leth and Madeleine Flores, I’ve discovered some pretty awesome comics without having to step foot into a store though.
It can be intimidating to get into comics, especially ones with decades-long histories. But today I want to tell you about some comics that I think are super easy to get into – whether because they’re fairly new or because the writing makes it easy to follow along, even if you don’t know the history.
