    When I got back into comics about 10 years ago, with about a 25 year gap in knowledge, my best friend was Wikipedia. There's so many short but sweet snyopsis about all these various events, etc... If you really want to know why character X is now dead, what happened to him/her, why did they go evil and then now are good again, etc... Wiki would be a quick way to go. See what's happened to Hal Jordan or Scott Summers or Logan or whomever you liked/think you'll like. Granted there will be some spoilers there, but if it interests you then you can go down that rabbit hole to either see what has been collected in physical books or digital.

    I rolled through all the Marvel events I had missed, and then eventually got them all in physical form to read them one after another, as an example. It's also how I got intrigued by certain things I missed and decided, "yeah, that sounds like something I would like" and got the trades where available - for me that was Justice League International/America/Europe stuff from the 80's. ;-)
    "Boomerang arrow, Kate... It comes back to you in the end. Boomerang. Respect it." - Clint
    "Why the hell do you need an arrow that comes back to you after you shoot it, Clint?" - Kate
    "Because... Boomerangs." - Clint.

    Yeah that's my motto too, if I happen to have a hot comic it's not because I think it's valuable but because I like the comic, although I did have many McFarlane Spider-Man's and of course the overabundance of the 90's cover gimmicks which are now stock piling discount boxes everywhere.

    Almost identical situation with me. I got back in about 10 years ago digitally and had no idea what was going on.

    There are some very good comics being made today, but for physically collecting them, about 90% is stuff from before I “stopped,” which was the early 90s.
