Hi, guys. So I'd like to get into comic books, and I have a few questions. First off, I don't know where to begin. I'd like to get into various comics such as Spider-Man, X-Men, etc. The problem is that they have an extensive history and I wouldn't know where to start, any help? Secondly, what's the difference between comics, trade paperback, and graphic novels? Lastly, what comics/stories should I read? I'm really interested in Miles Morales as Spider-Man.

You can pick that up and start a brand new ongoing series, where you shouldn't have to know everything to follow along. Also, trades are collections of usually 5-8 issues of a series, that can be hard or soft cover.
