Justice League #1 (1987) Cover Artist: Kevin Maguire DC was rebooting numerous books at this time including the Justice League. The previous incarnation of the team was made up numerous B-, C-, and D- characters and the book was on the outs. Giffen and DeMatteis take over the series bring back some A list heroes…
X-Men #50 Cover Artist: Jim Steranko Jim Steranko’s time at Marvel was short lived but his contributions are all classic.
The Green Lantern #6 Cover Artist: Liam Sharp Green Lantern is turning out to be a great book and a big part of that is Liam Sharp’s art.
The New Mutants #27 Cover Artist: Bill Sienkiewicz I remember not really liking Sienkiewicz taking over the art on this book. At the time Sienkiewicz was really experimenting with his style and I did not like it. The art on his run really is superb and are some of the best issues in the series.
Flex Mentallo Man of Muscle Mystery #3 Cover Artist: Frank Quitely A homage to Miller’s Dark Knight and an excellent Grant Morrison story with amazing Frank Quitely art. You will not be disappointed checking this one out.
The New Defenders #128 Cover Artist: Kevin Nowlan The rebooted team was really cool.
Superman #3 Cover Artist: John Byrne & Terry Austin Not a big fan of Superman, but I really enjoy Byrne’s run on the character.
Daredevil #182 Cover Artist: Frank Miller Just one of the most gut wrenching emotionally devastating covers of its day.
Moon Knight #38 Cover Artist: M.W. Kaluta Kaluta is such a great and often times underrated artist. His cover art in comics is absolutely fantastic. Moon Knight is also criminally underrated, have always been a fan and encourage you to check out the recent series.
Batman/Grendel #1 Cover Artist : Matt Wagner I believe this is the first crossover of a character from Marvel/DC and a character from an independent comic. Two of my favorites together. Good read, but you need to know a little about Grendel to not feel lost in the plot.
