Comic books can seem intimidating. If you go into a comic book store, you’re confronted with walls and walls of paper and no road map that tells you where to start. If you’ve never read a comic before and want to dip your toe in the ink-filled waters, here’s a few recommendations that blend excellent storytelling and incredible illustration.

It's just a fact that not all comics should be movies -- sometimes only TV can properly capture the scope of these stories. (I mean, you're not going to get all 75 issues of Neil Gaiman's Sandman in a movie, or even three.) At the same time, only a few comics could be adapted to television in a way that wouldn't suck, let alone be popular with the mass audience that would make such a show feasible. So with all that in mind, here are 10 comic books that would only work on television -- and have a damn good chance of being actual hits.
Finally, a comic that gets sex right. If you read comics, you probably know writer Matt Fraction. He's widely (and rightly) considered one of the best writers in the business, from Casanova to Hawkeye to other great stuff. Wired's got a really cool new profile of him, all about his latest comic Sex Criminals. A lot of what he's saying about sex and comics could just as easily be said about sex and video games.
