The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of "Which comic books should I be reading?" or "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?"
Indeed, the Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader looking for something new, much less the comics-curious totally unfamiliar with the myriad creators, characters and publishers the industry has to offer -- no to mention the sometimes confusing nature of comics' system of periodicals, trades, crossovers, pre-ordering, variants, reprints, and all the other dark mysteries of comic book shopping.
It's with these challenges in mind that we've created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by rotating members of the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers will find the easiest access to the best variety of cool books our storytelling medium has to offer, and where seasoned Wednesday shoppers can find recommendations for new titles to try out.
