Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with a new How To post, this time featuring comics. I know that some of you guys are interested in starting to read comics so I thought this post might help in some way, especially since I don’t talk about them enough on my blog!
I hope you guys enjoy this and find it somewhat helpful! Let me know if you love reading comics too!

I started reading comics quite a few years ago so I’m slightly qualified to give advice on this post! I do read a lot of superhero comics but not always, and so I will be recommending some of my favourite non-hero comics later in the post if you want to skip to that!
So, for this section of this post, I’m going to try and recommend (^^comics shown above^^) some comics that are handy for people trying to get into comics. These are all good for all ages, this way they’re too complex & there’s no crazy lore or background where you have to know about a whole previous universe if ya get my meaning.
If you’re trying to get into comics I recommend starting with something you might have already read the novelisation of (Percy Jackson, Alex Rider etc.) or a comic without a crazy plot. For example, try something like Lumberjanes or a comic with a superhero character you’re familiar with. I also recommend getting them out from the library if you can because comics can be quite expensive, especially if you don’t know what you like yet!
I thought I show you guys some of my favourite comic next because I’ve already shown you some of the comics I have read and recommend for beginners. These comics are all pretty great for beginners too, but the Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur series does require a tiny bit of background knowledge on the newer Marvel universe (you might also like Ms Marvel if you’re looking for more info on newer Marvel stuff).
The above comics are some of my absolute favourites and I own most of them physically, which definitely shows how much I love them.
I thought to end his post I would also talk about whether or not I only read superhero stories and then recommend you guys some comics without supers! Don’t get me wrong, I love superheroes in comics and I do read a lot of superhero comics but, they’re not all of what I read.
A lot of the time I enjoy reading fun comics like Lumberjanes or more satire comics like Bitch Planet because I also find them interesting. I’ve linked a bunch of comics above that I recommend. They’re all good places to start and at least four of them are PG13 (Obviously not Sex Criminals or Bitch Planet).
If you want any other comic recommendations you can find my Goodreads shelf here or you can ask me in the comments!
