What Are Your Favorite Feel Good Comics/Easy Reads?

I’ve been reading a HUGE amount of comics lately (about 100 volumes this year…yes volumes not issues) and I love it and love getting into the lore and all that, but sometimes i just wanna read without really thinking.

I loved Tiny Titans and Gotham Academy, they were cute and fun! Anything like that come up to mind? Or anything you got through super quickly?

Thanks xx

Teen Titans: Year One is one of my favorite feel-good stories. There are some more serious moments, but overall it’s super fun. Easily one of my all time favs that doesn’t get nearly enough credit/discussion.

I recently read Geoff Johns 2007 run of JSA and fell in love. I really wanna go back and read some more JSA stuff afterwards. It was so good.

For a fun and easy read, you’re not gonna top BATMAN: LI’L GOTHAM. A watercolor Batman and his family (and occasionally his enemies) on very cute holiday themed adventures.

Batgirl: Year One. Barbra Gordon’s origin isn’t as tragic as it is uplifting, making it a very feel-good story. Plus, Killer Moth… need I say more?

I would wake up after work. Typically read around ten issues then go to work.

I really like reading All-Star Superman and Superman for All Seasons. They do have some more serious bits in a few places but they’re both very uplifting.

I was about to say this also…

Zoom Books galore! (I suggest picking up at library)

Ever since I got this service, I have been devouring old golden age comics, Action Comics, Superman, Sensation Comics, Wonder Woman, Comics Cavalcade, All-Star Comics, Detective Comics, Batman.

I just love the vibe of the old golden age. I really didn’t realize how little about it I knew, even though I have been reading comics for almost 40 years.

The Superman/Batman series from 2003 onwards. Available in its entirety here on DCU. Hope you check it out and enjoy it :slightly_smiling_face:.

My favorite part of reading golden age comics is finding the big names’ first appearance and seeing how different they are. I recommend Action Comics 1 to see meaner Superman.

The Killing Joke is an easy read for me. It’s short but sweet. Another is Knightfall and while that’s long with 3 books in a trilogy, there is fun stories like Joker making a movie with him actually killing Batman.
