I was going to post a question on Reddit about what two or three comics I should start reading that would be relatively easy to get caught up on and have good characters with little to no triggery stuff in them and have some fantasy or space opera elements, but then I realized that literally any subreddit I would post in would immediately ban my post for failing to follow some obscure rule about asking research questions and I’d be admonished by some mod for failing to have already ingested seventeen years of that specific /r/‘s culture and mores.
EDIT: because this is getting all the right kinds of lovely folk boosting—stuff I love in comic books would be things like Catherine Asaro’s Major Bhaajan, steampunk elements (god I don’t have the energy to catch up on Girl Genius but I used to love it), Honor Harrington, Xena Warrior Princess, anything hopeful future like Star Trek, the anime series Trinity Blood, no fae sexy shit because I already know how to find ACOTAR on Libby and I don’t need an illustrated guide, and whimsy eg a Psalm For The Wild-Built.

I've recently finished the book "Flying Blind: The 737 MAX Tragedy and the Fall of Boeing", and it was actually pretty depressing to read how a focus on pure "shareholder value" and private enrichment of executives can quickly destroy most of the value of one of the biggest and highly innovative companies. Reading about the destruction of technical excellence in favor of a race to the bottom for short term market gains should be a cautionary tale for all companies that are currently technical leaders. Learn from history how easily that can change.
PS: Now that I know more about the behind-the-scenes reasons for the 737 Max accidents and resulting deaths, I will personally avoid flying in any of them in particular, and generally try to stay away from Boing aircraft while the company is further slipping into even shoddier QA practices.
