I bet no one got more excited about watching Bill Nye The Science Guy in class than Cosima.
She’d be that one kid in the class to sing along the the theme song and she’d laugh so loudly at the jokes that the teacher would sometimes have ask her to sit in the hall because she was disrupting the class and even then, you could still hear her laughing at the jokes.
Leigh aparadoxinflux and I are bombarding you as a welcome home, so buckle your seatbelt, dweeb.

*The asterisked titles are part of Marvel’s recent rebranding as Marvel NOW! which includes a pretty sizable number of solo and team series that are very accessible to new readers. Most are either ongoing or recently concluded. Others of note: Elektra (2014-Present), Fearless Defenders, FF, Hawkeye (2012-Present), Journey Into Mystery (the most recent run, from #646-654, starred Lady Sif; #622-#645 focuses on Kid Loki, and provides some context for his role in Young Avengers), Storm (2014-Present), Thor: God of Thunder, X-Men (2013-Present). Captain America (2004-2011) (and the subsequent Winter Soldier) may also be worth checking out if you were into the latest Captain America movie. There’s also Guardians of the Galaxy (2008) and Guardians of the Galaxy (2013-Present) if that movie piqued your interest. (My favorite stuff from this list is italicized, because I’m subtly manipulating you into prioritizing those titles.)
These aren’t all of the important titles, obviously–not by any stretch of the imagination. Most of the series on this list were chosen because you don’t need much prior knowledge of continuity to enjoy them, unlike stuff like Hickman’s Avengers (2012-Present), Original Sin et al, which rely on an assumed understanding of past events. Obviously there’s a huge spectrum, from espionage to interplanetary travel, so it all comes down to what has the most personal appeal.
And, of course, if you have trouble tracking down any of these things, I am here, lurking in the shadows, with a Dropbox account at the ready. Ily, please read Black Widow things, bye.

LEIGHHHH LEMME KISS UR FACE

sarahcosima has started reading comics and the world can rejoice because now vivacosima and I can scream to her about even more things that we love obsessively. She consented to me throwing an obscene amount of recommendations at her, and so in honor of her return from hiatus, HERE WE GO:
OKAY SETTLE IN I’M GONNA NAME ALL THE INDIES YOU SHOULD READ AND CHRISTINE WILL TAKE CARE OF THE MARVEL/DC (though I’m also going to include Vertigo here and not consider it under the DC title).
