I took my two boys (10 and 13) to Free Comic Book day and now the older one wants to get into superhero comics on a regular basis. I would like to help him pick 2 or 3 series to follow, but I have no idea on how to help him choose. He likes the X-Men, the Avengers, Justice League, etc., but there appear to be about a dozen different series for each set of characters. I sure can't afford them all and I think he would have a better experience if he were to follow a limited number (with full freedom to switch up after trying them for a bit) rather than following a score of disjointed narratives.
So, say you were transported into the body of a 13 year old boy (while retaining all of your current knowledge of superhero comics) and were given, like, $20 per month to spend on comics, which series would you buy?
(Before you-all go there, Suicide Girls, or the like, is not an acceptable answer)
