It's never a bad time to get into comics. You love the characters, the movies and the fandom, so why not start now?
With so many series and publishers out there, it might be tough to narrow down what you want. That's where we can help. Each week we'll profile the must-have comics for the week and recommend some jumping-on points for you to get reading.
This week's pulls are:
Quicksilver: No Surrender #1 | Marvel Comics
Saladin Ahmed, Eric Nguyen, Rico Renzi
Hot off the heels of the pretty stellar Avengers: No Surrender miniseries, the stellar Saladin Ahmed (Black Bolt, Exiles) and Eric Nguyen (Old Man Logan) are shining the spotlight on Quicksilver, the Marvel Universe's resident speedster who found himself in a fairly grim situation in the pages of the aformentioned No Surrender.
This miniseries is pegged as a celebration and introspection of Pietro Maximoff, and how his ego and brashness react when he's basically alone -- trapped in the time stream. Futility and emotion are two things Saladin Ahmed does well, and we can't wait to see how this one shakes out. Let's just hope it's not the end for Pietro.
Justice League: No Justice #2 | DC Comics
Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Joshua Williamson, Francis Manapul
The latest brave and bold event in the DC Universe continues this week with Justice League: No Justice #2. After a stellar debut issue bringing back some of the brightest heroes in DC Comics, things are ready to move as the strongest heroes and villains in the universe band together to take on a threat that has threatened literally everything. Seriously, what else would it take for the likes of Starro, Sinestro and Lex Luthor to work with Martian Manhunter, Starfire and Zatanna?
Whatever happens, the superstar creative team of Snyder, Tynion IV, Williamson and Manapul has our complete attention. Let's just hope things stay weird, because it's working out amazingly so far.
X-Men: Wedding Special #1 | Marvel Comics
Chris Claremont, Todd Nauck, Rachelle Rosenberg, Clayton Cowles, Marc Guggenheim, Greg Land, Jay Leisten, Jason Keith, Kelly Thompson, Marika Cresta, Federico Blee
While DC is busy planning its Batman/Catwoman wedding extravaganza, Marvel Comics is setting up for a wedding of its own. After years of back and forth, Kitty Pryde and Colossus look to finally be tying the knot. But before the big day, Marvel has assembled a pantheon of legacy X-Men writers and recent Marvel talent to celebrate the happy couple.
Split into three smaller stories, this super-sized special issue has bits from Kelly Thompson (Hawkeye), Marc Guggenheim (X-Men Gold) and none other than Chris Claremont. If you've been a fan of X-Men comics basically ever, that's all you need to make this issue a must-have for the week.
