I'm 22. Never really got into the whole American Comics thing, but i have loved the DC and Marvel Shows growing up along with the Movies.

Right now i've been watching that new CW show Arrow about Green Arrow and im really enjoying this character.

So right now im borrowing Green Arrow: Year One from my friend. I hope this is a good starting point.

Start with w/e character you like personally. Some stories are bad, some are great, but if you find a character or group you like, you will enjoy them almost no matter what.

One thing to remember about "western" comics is they do not flow like the cartoons and tv shows. What is a single episode in a show, is about 2-5 comics worth of content. Sometimes its not easy to notice, but others its really noticeable where its "just getting good" and then theres a "to be contined" at the bottom.

Don't miss Watchmen, The Dark Knight Returns, and Batman: Year One.

They are masterpieces.

I must be in the minority on this. I think Dark Knight Returns sort of sucks.
