New Niche Finder answers:

The book of mormon does not discredit the bible. It is another testament of Jesus Christ. It is an account of the people who lived on the American continents opposed to the bible’s people who lived in Jerusalem and surrounding areas.

While comic book collecting is a great hobby, it can be quite expensive. However, if you just want to read the book as opposed to owning the originals, I would suggest buying reprints. Both DC and Marvel sell reprint collections of their early stories, and both in similar formats.

There are the DC Archive Editions/Marvel Masterworks, which contain around 10 comics each, are in color, are on nice paper, have a nice binding, and cost around 30-40$ online for most of them (most offline locations charge more like 50$). This is still far cheaper than buying the actual books. It is also the only practical way to get a hold of reprints from the golden age (1938-1949). If you want to read about Superman, Batman, and Captain America’s early tales, then Archive Editions and Masterworks are the way to go.

There are also DC Showcase/Essential Marvel books. They are in black and white, contain around 30 comics each, and cost about 15$ online. They don’t have golden age comics for these. Like the Archive Editions and Masterworks (which cover all eras), they have stories from the silver age (1955-1969) and the bronze age (1970-1986). The silver age features the first stories of the Fantastic Four, Avengers, Justice League, Teen Titans, Spiderman, and a large variety of others. The bronze age is darker than the golden and silver ages ever were. It mostly takes established comics and develops them (going from one robin to nightwing, red hood, red robin, etc…). If you want to get your hands on as many stories as possible with as small of an investment as possible, then DC Showcase and Essential Marvel are the way to go.

My personal recommendation is to start with the silver age. Some excellent titles to look into from that era are the Legion of Super-Heroes, The Avengers, and The Fantastic Four. Later, once you have gotten more of a taste for older comics, try the golden age. It takes a bit longer to get into, but is definitely worth it. After that, you’ll have a solid foundation for the bronze age and eventually the modern age (1986-present day).

Hope this helps
