So yeah, as the title says, I've grown up with the cartoons, seen the movie adaptations (ah-hem), read MULTIPLE wikis, and even poked around internet for random comic pages here and there, but this is my first time saying; Yes. Marvel. Comics. OTHER than Deadpool, gunna read em'! But jumping into the Marvel universe as a virtual comic virgin is...intimidating to say the least.
I've noticed this community doesn't seem to be very active lately, but I'm convinced I can find no truer bluer Kurt Wagner fans than here. So, where should I jump in?
I've heard that the old school Excalibur comics were pretty definitive of Nightcrawler, and have started them, but starting off with Kitty [spoilers] mourning the loss of the X-Men as DEAD [/spoiler] I couldn't help but feel like I was missing out on some important stuff.
So yeah. Nightcrawler recs for a comic book virgin? (and should I continue with Excalibur after Vol 1?)
