Where to start?

What are the best graphic novels or comic books for a new reader to start with? I have never read anything in the genre but would love to expand and give it a try?

Suggestions for a newbie?

I only started reading them a few years ago.

The main advice I can offer is to pick something that would interest you anyway.

What do you typically enjoy, in any format (reading/watching)?
If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

I think graphic novels/comic books should be seen more as formats rather than genres, that way you just have to pick one that already is in your preferred genre and see if the style of presentation is to your liking. I guess kind of like Gravy already said then. 🤔 :lol:
