Big Media on worthwhile comic series
This is the Guardians recommendation of the Top Ten comic series to read:
"...we’re the midst of a new golden age for stories with pictures – and this time feels very different. Comics are defiantly not growing up. Instead, they are growing outwards, reaching wider audiences than either the stereotypical lone male comics fan in his ill-fitting Wolverine T-shirt, or the literary graphic novel reader with their well-thumbed copies of Maus, Palestine and A Contract With God. There are more women writers and artists, and more diverse creators in general, working in the medium.
...Where are all these new readers coming from? There are now numerous entry points to the new comics universe. The Marvel movies opened the door for many. The rise of independent company Image Comics, which puts out WicDiv, Bitch Planet, Saga and the globally successful series The Walking Dead, into the third-biggest comics publisher after Marvel and DC has helped. (Founded in 1992, Image was mostly known for conventional horror and superhero titles until around 2008, when it began publishing less easily categorised, creator-led comics to sudden acclaim.) But the arrival of smartphones and digital comics apps such as Comixology has been key to making comics more accessible."
