More often than not, Major Spoilers receives an email from readers to the Major Spoilers Site, or a listener to the show asking, the question; â€œIâ€™ve been away from comics for a while,â€ or â€œIâ€™m new to comics, and want to know where to begin. Any suggestions?â€ We’re here to present some suggestions.
