Favorite Comic Book - Current or Past

I used to love comic books. My favorite growing up was Nomad. I had all of them for the first few years including a signed issue #1 . Unfortunately they've been lost through time.



I was also a fan of Thor, but I don't like the movies. Go figure.

Tough call...


Cerebus the Aardvark is probably my all time favorite, even though it and the author/artist went off the rails with it later in the 300 limited issue mini-series. In a fit of downsizing, I sold my entire Cerebus collection for cheap money--sporadic early issues up to about 16, and then the complete run, with reprints, and all the ephemera I could get my hands on.

After that, I'd have to go by author/artist/creator: Matt Howarth -- esp. Those Annoying Post Bros.; Paul Pope -- esp. THB; Bob Burden's Flaming Carrot; David Lapham's Stray Bullets; Warren Ellis, Alan Moore, Bill Sinkiewicz, Brian Bendis, Brian Wood, Eddie Campbell, Rick Veitch, Phillipe Druilet... lots of indie artists, few mainstream.

Oh, and of course Moebius, esp. Moebius and Jodorowsky's Incal series.

I was never into comic books all that much, but for some reason I was really into the whole Planet of the Apes stuff growing up and started buying all the comic books.

I was also a fan of Lobo. I had all the early editions.



I had a signed Spawn 1st edition too. I know that was really hot (along with all Image comics) back in that era.

I never was a comic book fan, but many years ago while storing one of my family member's belonging, I ended up with a Sept 67 copy of Thor. I just recently gave it to a young co worker who was ecstatic in receiving it. I told him that now it his legacy to keep it for the next 50 years. Fun to look at the 12 cent original retail price.

I think I have a Nomad #1 in my closet somewhere. If you want it it's yours.

My favorite Action Comics of the late 60s and 70s.

My favorite single book, The Apex Treasury of Underground Comics. It had work from Don Donahue; R Crumb; Art Spiegelman; Gilbert Shelton; Justin Green; Willy Murphy; Bill Griffith; Kim Deitch; Spain Rodriguez; Bobby London; Shary Flenniken; Jay Lynch. With Maus, The Furry Freak Brothers, Ace Hole and, Trots and Bonnie in one book, what's not to like?

I grew up with the likes of Fantastic Four, Spiderman, and Tales of Suspense. Alas, I was just a tad too late for the pre-code, glory days of horror comics,
with offerings such as this:

As a kid, I loved the Legion of Super-Heroes. Corny, but fun. Also-- probably dates me.

When I was a boy, this stood out above all others. With Sergio Aragones, Dave Berg, Spy vs Spy and more, Mad made you think and laugh.

I wasn't into comic books until I was in the Army- an alcoholic guy gave me a drawer full of comics for a six pack of Budweiser. In that box was a lot of really cool stuff- think 86-88. That would have been Wolverine up to 22, X-Men and I remember the 300th issue of Spider Man was in there.

I was really in to X Men and Wolverine. I also was a fan of Badger- a psychotic multi personality kung fu master super hero. I had all the issues and at least one graphic novel.

I probably read Mad more than any other comic book.
But the one I liked best was Milk & Cheese

The stuff I liked in the 90's wouldn't interest me now.

I wonder what happened to Todd McFarlane's fortune after his home run record baseballs turned out to be hit by dopers.

daredevil: issues 158-201.

x-men: issues 48-65 or so. the neal adams stuff. the issue with polaris (issue 50 i think) may be the most beautiful cover i've ever seen.

As a kid I liked Superman and Batman. Then the Legion of Superheroes.

As a teen got into Spiderman and Not Brand Eck?

As a young adult Jonah Hex for a while.

Mid 30s was reading The Tick and Paul the Samurai. But the local comic book store started price gouging and I quit buying.

Same here.

The Frank Miller Daredevil was amazing. Same with the Alan Moore Swampthing run. I was also a fan of Bill Sienkiewicz, and watched his art go from realistic and derivative to full on psycho-impressionist in the Moon Knight and New Mutant series, so the Frank Miller/Bill Sienkiewicz Elektra Assassin mini series always stood out for me.

Started reading the Tick at issue #1 of the original NEC series, but dropped it and comics in general for a while. Then got back into them for a brief split second before the local shop closed and I again lost interest and got too broke for comics. To that end, in a fit of downsizing, I cut my stash down from 15 longboxes to 2...
