3. Amazing Spider-Man
If you’re not reading Dan Slott’s Amazing Spider-Man then you don’t like comics. Okay, that’s pretty reactionary – but Slott is, and has always been writing the purest expression of Marvel’s most iconic character since maybe Stan Lee himself. With top notch artists, exciting storylines, brilliant twists, turns, in jokes, and great new characters, ASM is as good as its ever been, and maybe even better than that. Smart and funny, Slott understands that Spidey is the book any reader should be able to pick up at any point and get right in, while still pushing the ongoing soap opera and storylines. If you want to get a new reader into comics, hand them any issue of Amazing Spider-Man, and stand back in victory.
