kryka83 asked: Since the "Guardians of the Galaxy" trailer just debuted, what comics would you recommend newbies start reading for this series? Thanks!

agentmlovestacos:

That’s an excellent question!

We created four Infinite Comics focused on Rocket, Groot, Drax and Gamora to really introduce new readers to them.

There’s a current Guardians of the Galaxy series which is super rad.

The first 8 issues of Avengers Assemble feature the Guardians and the Avengers teaming up. Certainly read those.

You’ll definitely find influences from the 2008 Guardians of the Galaxy series in the film, and I sure as heck love that run. But it may not be the easiest to follow if you don’t as much about the cosmic side of the Marvel Universe. 

Those should really help you get going!

75 Years of Lois Lane: A Chat with Kelly Sue DeConnick

This month marks 75 years since Action Comics #1 landed on the newsstand. In that issue Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel introduced the world to one of the most important women in comics - Lois Lane (Superman made his debut in that issue, too). To mark this anniversary I’m chatting with some of her creators to get their thoughts on the character and her place in comic history.You can see the previous pieces here. Today I am chatting with Kelly Sue DeConnick. While she is now writing Captain Marvel and Avengers Assemble for Marvel she once wrote an arc for Supergirl for DC Comics. During Emerald City Con she talked about how she took it as an opportunity to also write Lois. DeConnick also told me that Lois Lane is the only comic related thing she’s every collected and years ago she put out a ‘zine with a hostess called “Lois Slain” a la the Cryptkeeper.

So Kelly Sue, someone asks you “Who Lois Lane?” what do you say?

“Superman’s Girlfriend,” would probably be the first thing out of my mouth because of the title of the comic, but she’s so much more than that, isn’t she?
