This FAQ was pretty informative. I have one question... With a series that has been running for decades, how do you "begin"? Basically, how does a noobie jump into something like Spider-Man? There are so many issues and storylines and spin-offs; it's all very overwhelming.

even though its way too late i'm going to address this

mostly, dont worry about it

people think you have to know everything about comics to get going with them. thats not true. especially with modern books, you can just start with the most recent stuff and be fine. if you dont understand something, just try to look it up or ask. the sheer amount of stuff can be overwhelming but most of it you dont need to know.

Easy. Just start buying comics lol! You might be a little fuzzy about a few things at first, but for the most part, comics aren't as exactly on-going as you might think. Yes, there are story arcs that bleed into the next and kinda influence the next, but for the most part if you jump onto the first issue of an arc the writer will usually do a recap or something like that to get you caught up.

Spiderman is probably the easiest thing to jump onto if you want to read. Usually if anything from any past issues is referenced Dan Slott will put a note at the bottom of the panel telling you exactly which issue it comes from.
