  • avengers assemble (avengers assemble is a great intro to avengers comics, especially if you’re familiar with the mcu but less so with 616. also note: this torrent contains 1-21 but the series goes to issue 25. I recommend starting at issue 9)
  • mighty avengers (a current ongoing, probably the best team book marvel is putting out right now)
  • avengers, (the current main avengers title. there are…a lot of avengers teams. this one is lead by captain america and iron man)
  • new avengers (vol 1 is STUPID CUTE and is a good marvel team book that is pretty easy to follow along for the most part.)
  • secret avengers #1-21 (don’t read past 21), also captain america and the secret avengers. both new avengers and secret avengers are older and some larger events affect both books, but light googling will help you figure out what’s happening if you get too confused.

*note: I am giving you mostly torrent/download links. I am a big supporter of trying before you buy, though, so if you download these and like them, and if you can afford them, I highly recommend buying!!!!! comixology is the biggest (legal) resource for digital comics, and very handy if you don’t have access to a comic shop, but depending on your location, you can also find trades in your local bookstores or on amazon or ebay.

I recently got a Marvel Unlimited subscription, so this has been super useful!

Today in art class, our professor taught us how to use polaroid cameras. Naturally, I played Outkast’s “Hey Ya” while we waited for the first photo to develop.
