a couple months ago and read through the Brubaker run and enjoyed a lot of it. I'm looking for more recommendations for what to read that's up on the Marvel Unlimited site-- I'm not really interested in buying issues that aren't up yet.
What I really liked about Captain America and The Winter Soldier and some of the tie-ins and Marvel Events I read was focus on character relationships (not just the romantic ones-- in fact the only romantic one I really cared for was Bucky/Nat, I couldn't really bring myself to care about any of Steve's romances). I'm an odd person for comic books because I'm really not in it for the action. Here is a list of things I am particularly interested in:
- female characters who are awesome and interesting
- characters who face emotional trauma but don't get all Batman manpain-y over it (Steve Rogers does this really well)
- awesome character friendships
- funny characters with excellent jokes and snark and such
- interesting and unusual art styles
- queer characters
Based exclusively on his appearances in Civil War, I'm pretty sure Spider-Man should be on my list, but I'm not sure where to start with him. But I know that Marvel's been doing some really good work with female characters recently and am wondering which ones I should pick up. (Ms. Marvel, unfortunately, isn't on Marvel Unlimited yet, and I'm not sure which of the million She-Hulk runs is the She-Hulk run people are talking about.) I also want to give Deadpool a shot but am not sure where to start with him either. (Is the panel where Deadpool jokes to Spidey
about how they must read different websites from an actual comic? Or is it shopped? If it is from an actual comic, which one is it from, and is it usually that funny or was that a fluke?)
Also, let me know if there are any particular fan tie-ins related to the stuff you're recommending that I might like. I know it's MCU and not the main Marvelverse, but I really, really like Steve Rogers' American Captain
-- introspective dealing-with-being-in-extraordinary-circumstances stuff is totally in my baileywick.
