Getting into reading and collecting comics can seem difficult to the newcomer. Here are some starting points.
The following is a list of first issues, one shots and stepping on points to be released in April 2015. Schedules change and they may not all be released in April (or sometimes at all). While first issues are more likely to be new reader friendly, that is not always the case and no guarantees are made.
