A former student of mine, now in his mid-20s, has started getting into comics for the first time since he was child. He's actually going to appear as a special guest on the Splash Page this week, with Chad Nevett and I, but he was asking me for advice on what to read now that he's finished Watchmen. It's hard to follow that up with something, obviously, but he's a big fan of The Totally Rad Show and they recommended, of all things, Supreme Power. That's a terrible recommendation, isn't it? It's slow-moving and it's unfinished. What could a new reader possibly get out of reading such a thing?
Does anyone think that was a good recommendation for a reader new to comics?
What trade paperbacks would you recommend to my former student?
