As I see quite a few post about people asking for comic recommendations I thought I'd write a short post about comics I have read and enjoyed. I will focus mainly on comics that can be found in trade paperbacks and ones that don't need a terrible amount of backstory (ones that you can wiki to catch up on). These are my subjective opinions entirely so take it with a pinch of salt. Also this is not exhaustive. Feel free to add your own opinions.
