Getting into reading and collecting comics can seem difficult to the newcomer. Here are some first issues to use as possible starting points.
The following is a list of first issues, one shots and stepping on points to be released in July 2016. Schedules change and they may not all be released in July (or sometimes at all). While first issues are more likely to be new reader friendly, that is not always the case and no guarantees are made.
