    Default Comic recomendations

    I am already planing on reading a lot of the old school marvel and DC super hero comics. But outside of those, the than the walking dead, I am clueless. I'm into just about everything except romance. Western, detective/crime, mystery, comedy comics are lower on my preferences. Fantasy, science fiction, mythology are top genres and horror, thriller, suspense type stuff somewhere in the middle. Older or completed series I would prioritize over new especially if its multi series like many marvel and DC comics. I'd probably was to start from the very beginning in cases of multi series. My plan is to gather a list of recommendations and prepare a reading plan for subscribing for a year to comixology. Thanks.

    Anything by Hickman.

    Try East of West; it just recently ended and it is hard sci-fi and great world building.

    Elevator Pitch: what if the World was different from the America Civil War onwards and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse show up. I don't want to say anymore lest I spoil it.

    Science fiction:
    Negation - I think it's hard to get in collected format, so would probably have to buy the singles...
    Doctor who comics from Titan are pretty awesome


    General:
    Curse Words (Image)
    TMNT (IDW)
    Transformers (IDW)
    MMPR (Boom)
    Y: The Last Man (Vertigo)
    Chew (Image)




    Short Reads:
    Irmina (Selfmadehero)

    I would highly recommend the following:

    East of West
    Lazarus
    Buffy the Vampire Slayer (DH or the new series - both are fantastic)
