I went to Barnes N Nobles not to long ago and I saw different Spider-Man comics. They all looked rather interesting, however I'm not sure where to begin. I know of the older comics. I want to start collecting them soon. Checked on ebay and on amazon and some of them are pricey, but I'm willing to spend money. For now though I want to know where should I start off with? What Spider-Man comic should I buy first? Is it available in book stores or do I have to order it from a special site. When you recommend me something, please let me know on where I can find it. I seen other comics in the store that was not by Stan Lee and they look interesting. Are they worth checking out too or should I avoid them? Sorry for all the questions. Just not sure on where to start. I've been asking around for a week now on different Forums and nobody seems to help me out. I'll appreciate it so much if you can help me out with this. I really need to start reading comics soon!
Note: If there's no Good Spider-Man comics worth checking out than please recommend me a good Horror or other type of Graphic Novel. I have a open mind when it comes to Comics and Graphic Novels. Thank you. I'd also be up for reading manga as well.
