The MCU has brought in so many new fans and inspired them to start reading comics. The problem is that because Marvel has been around so long jumping into comic books is kind of a terrifying process. So I am here to help you find where to start in comics based on your favorite MCU character and movie. So we are starting with Tony Stark, otherwise known as Iron Man. One of Marvel’s longest running characters meaning that there are too many comics to dive into. So I am here to help you narrow down the search, and give you good places to start.
The MCU has always been very good at taking a handful of comics and taking bits and pieces from all of them, condensing them and putting together a cohesive story on the screen. For the most part the characterizations that you see on screen are comic book accurate even if the stories aren’t. So when you switch mediums the characters should still feel familiar but you will also get to experience new and different stories. Now obviously there are 1000 different Iron Man stories but if you want to start in a familiar place and then find something new, these are my recommendations. Comic books are also kind of at a point where you can start wherever you want. Some more recent stories will include tags for previous stories in the new story points. So you can go ahead and read back if you want more context.
