    May 2, 2013 12:42 am One of my favorite "What If' issues was #3, where instead of the Avengers hunting down the Hulk (and finding frozen Cap), they break up, Thor leaves, and Stark builds armor for Hank Pym, Janet Van Dyne, and Rick Jones(!). Kind of cool seeing Giant-Man fighting in Iron Man armor. Jim Shooter wrote, Gil Kane drew, and Tony Stark dies saving his Armored Avengers. At least Tony's not selfish in alternate universes. So claims Uatu!
    April 30, 2013 12:33 am Waitaminute.. Starbrand? STARBRAND? Star-"I got Jim Shooter Fired"-Brand? Since when has Marvel ever acknowledged ANY characters from the New Universe debacle? If this Hickman reclamation project works, what's next?? Kickers, Inc.? Nightmask? Justice? D.P.7?
    March 27, 2013 12:18 am "Unglaublich!" seems like each of the All-New, All-Different X-Men came equipped with their own catchphrase, eh? "Goddess!"
    February 22, 2013 12:48 am I believe Conor's quote in the logline is from issue #3 of John Byrne's Man Of Steel post-Crisis reboot. That was a fantastic first meeting between Bats & Supes that I always looked at as the bookend to Miller's final DKR issue. There's more to be mined there, though, and I can't wait to see where Pak takes it.
    February 5, 2013 2:25 am This is amazing, that so many had this as their 1st experience with comics. One of my earliest memories is being laid up with the flu at about 4 years old, and my mom coming home with a Jack Kirby Sandman comic. Wish I still had that one!
    January 15, 2013 12:38 am I know the voting is over, and my vote would have gone for Neal Adams, but I'd like to give a special mention to Bernie Wrightson. I don't know if he ever did Batman other than the Swamp Thing team-up, but his version has always stuck with me. The shadowy cape, the elongated ears, it's hard not to think Wrightson's Bats had some sort of influence on Breyfogle. I often go back and look at that issue along with the early O'Neil/Adams issues as the beginning of the Dark Knight we all know and love.
    October 12, 2012 12:53 am Captain Comet is Grant Morrison's antagonist for Superman in Action Comics #12 & #0. Grant hasn't called him by that name yet, but he does go by Adam Blake. Looks like Morrison has big plans for CC in whatever he's doing for DC after Action.
    May 18, 2012 12:12 am I've been reading comics for close to 40 years now, and my two all-time favorite issues ever are Avengers Annual #7 & Marvel Two-In-One #2, the two issue arc that features everybody and their mother taking on the Mad Titan. Plus the first deaths of Adam Warlock & Thanos. All hail Jim Starlin.
    April 22, 2012 7:30 pm For Your Eyes Only. Also known as "the last good Roger Moore Bond movie."
    November 15, 2011 10:01 am I was going to say this looked awesome, and that my kids will jump for joy at the return of the anime Titans. Then I saw Negative Man and my geek heart exploded with ecstacy.
