Getting Into Comics: A Newbie’s Guide To Getting Started Reading Comic Books

Hosted ByTim Paige

The movies are great. The shows are fantastic. So you've been thinking about Getting Into Comics. But where do you start? There are so many choices! Almost a century's worth of stories! And 23 different versions of Deadpool! Whether you've never picked up a comic book in your life, or you read them when you were younger and want to pick it back up again, that's what Getting Into Comics is all about. It's the show that demystifies the world of comic books -- hosted by Tim Paige, who has recently rediscovered his love of comics after over a decade, but waited far too long to get back into it because of the confusion involved with trying to get started.

On Getting Into Comics -- we'll talk about the books we're reading and break down some of the story, to help you decide if that book is right for you. We'll share our ideas on where to start based on what you like. We'll define the terms that might be confusing. And we'll be in it together. No snobbiness. No feeling like a n00b. Just embracing the absolute insanity that is the world of comic books, and falling in love with a medium that can provide you entertainment for life. This is Getting Into Comics, with your host, Tim Paige.
