May 22, 2013 2:14 pm @ochsavidare: Agreed. Unless its going to be Batman Begins just cover the origin in 15 minutes and move on. The Watchmen credits are another great example. Maybe even better than the Hulk.
May 22, 2013 1:52 pm Can't believe I didn't mention this in my previous post but Atomic Robo is consistently one of the best and funniest books out there. Also Killer of Demons and Olympus are two of my absolute favorite indie comics of the last five years. Particularly Killer of Demons. I keep hoping for a sequel to that book.
May 22, 2013 1:49 pm Morrison's All-Star Superman is probably my favorite retelling of an origin. But I'm also a big fan of Batman Year One and X-Men Deadly Genesis.
May 22, 2013 1:45 pm For characters like Superman and Batman I think most people probably have a general idea of how they became super heros. Spider-Man is probably on the same level at this point. But those are the absolute top of the super hero film world, Batman and Spider-Man have had multiple origin stories told on screen and Superman is perhaps the best known origin story of any superhero. However, I think origin stories are needed sometimes. For example, most non-comics readers probably had no idea how Tony Stark became Iron Man or how Hal Jordan became Green Lantern. In most cases I think at least a cursory retelling of a character's origin is necessary for people who don't already have a connection to that character. That said, many superhero films could learn a lot from the opening credits sequence of the last Hulk film.

May 20, 2013 1:48 pm Yes to Rachel Rising!
May 20, 2013 1:14 pm I've heard great things about both Mind MGMT and Nowhere Men, plan to pick up trades of both.
May 20, 2013 1:13 pm It flies a little under the radar but I've really really REALLY been enjoying David Hine's Storm Dogs. Great world building, great characters, and an engrossing story. Great art too. I think there is only one issue left in the mini so you might just want to wait for the trade. It is a really cool world and so far we've only gotten little peaks at the rest of the universe so I hope Hine does some follow up minis to flesh out the universe even more.
