Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Hey guys, I've been out of comics for a while and am looking at getting back into it. Can someone give me some suggestions? I'm looking for:
    - stuff released within the last 5-8 years. Before that I'm pretty well versed and know what's out.
    - Things that are fairly standalone, either mini-series or at least single series, not looking for huge events. I like contained stories.
    - Things that are funny, quirky, or weird. I enjoy things like Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol, GLA, Nextwave, Fables, Scalped...
    - But I also like normal superhero stuff if it's unique in some way, or just well done. I've been curious about Dr. Strange and got the first couple books of his current series, and it's pretty good.

    I remember hearing good things about Hawkeye and Squirrel Girl, are they good places to start? I also enjoyed Agents of Atlas, is that still around?

    Hawkeye and Squirrel Girl are definitely good places to start.

    I would strongly recommend checking out Jonathan Hickman's Avengers saga that went from 2012 to 2015. Check out this infographic: http://i.imgur.com/X9zUA8X.png

    Other stuff I'd recommend checking out:

    Al Ewing's work on Mighty Avengers / Captain America and the Mighty Avengers / Ultimates / New Avengers / USAvengers

    Si Spurrier's X-Men Legacy

    Tom King's Omega Men and Vision

    Grant Morrison's Multiversity

    Gerry Duggan's Deadpool and Uncanny Avengers

    Kieron Gillen's Young Avengers and Al Ewing's Loki: Agent of Asgard
