How are people supposed to get into comics? >oh you found a comic you are interested in? >here’s my 10 page dissertation on what you have to read beforehand to understand what is happening >many of these build up comics aren’t the same tone as the one you are interested in >also this venture will cost you over $1000 to start because half these comics are long since out of print and only sold by collectors
Meanwhile with manga >oh cool you found a new manga series >when you are done with the first volume, you can go to various brick and mortar stores or search online for the second volume for under $10 as they are continuously printed
american comics are for braindead boomers and millennial trannies
Based. Comics are a dying industry and made for retards.
Actually capeshit (not all comics you schizo) is bad cause you can just read wikis and watch videos of autists explaining the shitty lore. If you want a story with an end you're better off with what they call "graphic novels".
That's only an issue with capeshit. And capshit is, well, shit. Take the adventure and comedy comicspill
>many of these build up comics aren’t the same tone as the one you are interested in This is a huge problem with trying to create a comics chronology. For example, Batman Year One is very different from most Batman comics, I don’t think it’s a good intro to the character. People should just read the comics that look interesting to them, they weren’t written with chronology in mind (although 60s-80s Marvel sort of was) so why pretend there is one.
>console wars thread If you're not 14 then you need to get a grip. If you are, please leave.
>implying he doesn't frame and put his favorite comics on the wall
Most people buy collected editions these days user
But if I pick one that looks cool I still eventually run into the problem of having to read other comics to fully grasp the story
>implying you can't do both
All these threads comparing manga's success over comics, and no solutions on how to improve American comics.
>when I read one story I need to continue to keep reading other stories to understand what is going on I fail to see the issue. If you're enjoying the current thing you are reading, then it shouldn't be a problem to check what comes next and picking that up. If you're not enjoying it, you just drop it and try something else. It's not that hard.
Or you know, you could just read it and accept that a superhero team where one guy has stretchy arms also exists in this universe. I feel like you can fully grasp the story without reading everything, at least I have never run into any issues and I definitely don't read everything. Also you could just read a non big two comic
>comics only means American superhero comics
solutions are offered every thread, you retard. This is a bait thread that is posted every day and has been for months, maybe years.
It's true Just like I'm sure how before The Golden Age arc people would have been on forums bitching about how Berserk wasn't explaining why this Griffith guy in black leather was so important to Guts. Just screaming from the rooftops "I don't understand every slight detail of this world setting I REFUSE context clues!"
we did the first 20 times, now it's just laugh at Yea Forumstards the thread
Tintin Hellboy Blackhole From Hell list goes on and on
arent you tired of posting the same thread that never gets a conclusion
I really don't understand all the seething, most comics are like 30 issues long at most. The Yea Forumsfags pretending they have tried to read anything is just embarrassing, nothing is that complicated
