Number 3: Guardians of the Galaxy
With a recently released blockbuster movie interpretation rated with 8.5 in IMBD, it’s not a surprise that so many people are now interested in the comic book. While, most superheroes use their special powers to protect only one city or at least stay within the borders of the Earth, the guardians of the galaxy bunch have set higher goals. The surprisingly diverse mutant team fights all evil in the cosmos. The comic books reveal space adventures full of action, so take a look.
Number 2: Batman
11 movies, 6 animated films, various TV and cartoon series, and 75 years’ worth of comic series make Batman an all-time classic. Two-face, Bane, and the Joker are only a small part of Batman’s rivals. However, Batman always manages to protect Gotham city, finding a way to the hearts of the readers. No matter what year it is, the comics remains in top 3.
Number 1: Deadpool
Due to the buzz around the Deadpool movie going to be released in 2016, the outcast of the Marvel has received extra attention. In the comics, the mentally unstable character is completely aware that he’s a part of a comic book, which makes him practically immortal. The dark humor, Deadpool’s wicked mind, and the fact that he’s at the same time a hero and an antihero makes the comics such an interesting read. The comic series Deadpool reset the whole Marvel universe, so it deserves at least a quick glance.
