First off Guardians of the Galaxy is $0.99 per issue over at Comixology.com for its Marvel Monday sale.
I was wondering if this would be a good place for someone to start off reading Marvel comics. I just started reading graphic novels/comics about 2 weeks ago and have read Batman:Year One, The Man Who Laughs, and just started Secret Six. I'm going to continue reading Batman and wanted to expand a little more into some Marvel stories. I know the Guardians of the Galaxy aren't your typical Marvel characters but ever since I saw the bad-ass Rocket Raccoon in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, I've been interested in learning about his back-story. Plus, they just announced the movie and its got me even more intrigued to learn about his team. I'm a fan of plenty of other Marvel characters from the movies, shows, and games but some of their stories are so huge I was going to wait until MarvelNOW! to try out some of the bigger names(Spider-Man, Deadpool, Avengers, X-Men, Captain America)
So is this as good as any story to try out for a Marvel comic?
Are there any tie-in stories I should know about before reading this?
Do you think MarvelNOW! would be a good starting place to try out some of the bigger names or should I just check out what's going on now?
Any other suggestions?
