As I am sure most of you know, I am a HUGE Marvel comic book fan. Before I had kids, I was subscribing to at least 40 comic series a month. Once I had the girls, I had to cut back – it wasn’t even a money so much as a time thing. Recently, I started picking up more and more series. These are my current favorites that I think EVERY Marvel fan should be reading. If you have a favorite that is not on this list, please let me know. I am always open to adding more Marvel series to my list.

It is no secret that I cannot wait for Avengers: Infinity War to hit theaters on May 4th. I am a bit of a Marvel Fan Girl, in case you did not know, and have been counting the days for years.

Trust me, this will help you walk in to the film prepared – but won’t give anything away!
5 Reasons To Read Marvel Comic’s Guardians of the Galaxy Infinity Quest NOW! | #CountdownToInfinityWar
In case you have been living under a rock, let me tell you that I am a bit of a Marvel fan. I love the comic books as well as the movies. I also have an insane amount of Marvel collectibles. As you might already know, the Guardians of the Galaxy are one of my all time favorites (I mean, hello, I have a full tattoo sleeve featuring them). Lately, they have been tossed around the comic book universe. What I mean by that is there was a short run by Brian Bendis, then another by Garry Duggan, which abruptly went from All New Guardians of the Galaxy #12 to Guardians of the Galaxy Infinity Quest #146 (still written by Garry Duggan) seemingly over night. Which is not entirely a bad thing, however, because man, is it good.
Black Panther is hitting theaters in February 2018 and is highly anticipated by Marvel fans everywhere. I am certainly one of those fans who is dying to see what Marvel does with this film. Admittedly, I am sad knowing that Storm won’t be in it – but thanks to that exciting deal being worked out by Disney and Fox, we might see her in the future! Wakanda is one of my favorite places in the Marvel Comics world, so seeing it become a part of the MCU is pretty awesome. If you don’t normally read the comics, but want a good background on the man himself, Black Panther, before heading to theaters in February, here are 5 books I think you should pick up.
Let’s face it, 2017 has already been a pretty good year for movies. Especially for geeks like me! I mean, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, Logan, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and now we have Thor: Ragnarok to look forward to. I know I have told you guys time after time, but I am am a pretty big comic book fan. I have been reading Marvel Comics since I was a little girl – and Thor has always been a favorite of mine. If you don’t know much about Thor and Hulk besides what you have seen in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), I encourage you to pick up these few comics to familiarize yourself with them more.
I am really looking forward to Marvel’s Inhumans coming to ABC in September. The Inhumans comic book series is one of my favorites and has been for a long time. The characters are all amazing and the story lines always have me hooked. Black Bolt and Medusa are one of my absolute favorite comic book couples. Now, I know many people out there don’t know much about The Inhumans. I put together a list of my favorite trade paperbacks that are sure to get you hooked on them – and also ready for the ABC TV Series!
If you are a fan of the Guardians of the Galaxy films, take it from a comic book nerd like me, there are some books you just HAVE to read. If you want some great movie tie-ins and backgrounds on your favorite characters, these are the ones for you. Ideally, I would love to convince you all to go to your local comic book shop or look online and pick up every single issue that any of the Guardians appear in – but that is asking A LOT, I know. So I put together 5 of my favorite comic books (OK, a few are trade paperbacks) that any Marvel Cinematic Universe fan should pick up.
It is finally almost here guys, the best time of year. When the flowers start to bloom and it becomes FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!
