It's been a long time since I've read Marvel comics and those pictures have left me intrigued. I vaguely remember what happened in the animated cartoon and I would like to get an update on what's happened.
Those pictures look good and I've heard good things about many comics like New Xmen, avengers, ww hulk, etc.
So what should I start reading if I wanna get updated on those crossovers and all those story lines that lead to those pictures you guys posted? Cause they look very current, and I only remember the comics from the old times and I would like to catch up a little.
I knwo this is a dumb question, but have to ask anyways since you know more about comics than I do.
Are graphic novels and comics the same thing, basically?
I know comics (at least the "old" ones) were made out of thinner paper than graphic novels these days. I was in Barnes and Noble today and was looking at their graphic novels and they had a good selection of X-men and Wolverine graphic novels (X-men related comics is really the only comic stuff I like).
Here's one of the graphic novels they had in the store that I thought about buying:
Graphic novels are compilations of single issues. Usually they cover at least one story arc.
true. but also not always. graphic novels can also be written as a single stand alone novel but Vapid is correct. most of the time they are compilations of storylines or mini series. they are also called "trades"
