So you want to get into comics: A rec list (Part 1, Marvel edition)

sibilantly:

This list arose from a discussion I had with embarrassedpokerface about how the convoluted history of mainstream comics can make it daunting for new readers to get into. Each title in this list is, in my opinion, an excellent jumping on point, whether it be because it’s a reboot, a new story arc, or both.

The majority of these titles started after 2000, but before the Marvel NOW! reboot. I picked this period because the storylines and aesthetics are still relatively modern, plus the Marvel NOW! reboot is a soft reboot anyway, meaning recent events (i.e. all the titles in this list) haven’t been consigned to retcon hell.

I’ve provided torrent links wherever possible (you’ll need a .cbr/.cbz reader such as CDisplayEx, Comical, or CBR Reader to read them). However, if you enjoy the comics, please support the writers and artists by buying the titles - I’ve included Amazon and Comixology links with every rec, too.

Disclaimer: This is not a comprehensive or objective list - even though I’ve tried to cover a wide range of genres and characters, I naturally have preferences when it comes to reading. If you feel that I’ve missed something, feel free to add on more recs in your re-blog (but please try to keep them new reader friendly).

Reminder that Rin was probably so upset because not only is Haru blowing off his future, but he’s blowing off a future with Rin. By not finishing the race, he blew off the chance to swim with Rin in the finals, and he might have blown off the chance to swim with him in university, and Haru didn’t even realize what he was saying.

And then, he turned around and said he swims for his friends. Rin must not feel like one of those friends anymore.

the whole time i watched the scene, i could just hear rin’s thoughts…

'…but Haru, I thought you were swimming for me…'

This ish right here! It’s pretty damn amazing, powerful, yummy and a must have.
Yes, it’s honey but not just any honey. It’s a healing honey that can be used internally (via spoonfuls or in tea) or externally (on hair, skin, cuts).
My partner suffers from cystic acne. NOTHING was working to help reduce his painful bumps (or scars that were left behind by past breakouts). We did some research and I KNEW manuka honey would pop up. He’s been using it for over 2 months and I am proud to say his acne is under control, his scars have faded and some have even disappeared.
How he uses it (nightly): -smears about 1 tablespoon all over his face and leaves it on for 15-30 minutes. -takes a warm rag and removes the honey from his face. -rinses with cold water
that’s it.
I’ve been using this honey on my hair (when I had hair) and in my tea for over a year. Now, since my head is shaved, I use it on my scalp after my haircuts to minimize itching and flaking. I leave it on for about 15 mins before rinsing.
 I love this stuff. You know what’s funny? It actually smells like medicated honey, even though nothing is added to it. It’s crazy how the earth and it’s workers (the bees) can produce such magic!
Manuka honey isn’t cheap BUT it’s worth the 26 bucks.
We got ours from Amazon. It’s cheaper there than at Wholefoods or Roots Market.
 I highly suggest you research it if you’re struggling with acne or acne scars. And in general, having this honey a part of your diet and/or holistic health regimen is pretty damn awesome.
 Google it. Thank me later. xoxoxo
