David Sparks and Casey Liss talk about being new and aspiring comics readers as adults. Moisés & John give them a varied pile of recommendations for adults that aren't...adult. Writer/illustrator Terry Moore talks Rachel Rising.
Comics aren't just about guys in underwear punching each other. Find your own Kate Bishop, forsake your box of QVC Spawn, and discover your Coalition of Broken People.

- David "MacSparky" Sparks (Mac Power Users & MacSparky) is on Twitter and is Kate Bishop on the inside.
- "Who the Hell is" Casey Liss (ATP & Fast Text) is on Twitter, ADN, and is working off his all-consuming Spawn fixation.
- Ant-Man is/was/will ever be three different people: Henry "Hank" Pym, Scott Lang, and "The Irredeemable" Eric O'Grady. Pym Particles are the new black.
- Hawkeye (vol.4 by Fraction/Aja/Wu) is great, but might be better experienced by new readers in TPB form.
- Saga is Saga, and Saga is great (and likewise better taste-tested in TPB form).
- "Friends of the show" Greg Pak and Jonathan Coulton's Code Monkey Save World is finally out, great, and fun!
- Locke & Key has finally completed its lengthy, suspenseful, and emotional, six-volume run. Use the Head Key and just stick it all in your brain at once.
- Sex Criminals surprised David, is one of my favorite comics on the racks, and despite being for adults only, isn't a "boobie comic"...but it's too hot for in-app purchase on iOS...except for in Apple's own iBooks storefront.
- The Private Eye is the internet's big Brian K Vaughn thing Moisés feels like no one is talking about, and it's so, so great, digital-only-forever (seriously), DRM-free (yes), and pay-what-you-want-to-pay (yeah really).
