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.
The Spectre #1 Cover Artist: Tom Mandrake Ostrander and Mandrake’s 62 issue run is really good, the definitive representation of the character in my opinion. The cover was also bad ass because it glowed in the dark. Just one of many gimmicky covers that littered the 90’s comics landscape.
Jonny Quest #5 Cover Artist – Dave Stevens I’m a huge Jonny Quest fan and this run by Comico comics is fantastic. I highly recommend adding this run to your collection.
Madman Comics #1 Cover Artist – Mike Allred Have always enjoyed Mike Allred’s art style and Madman is such a fun comic to read.
Teen Titans #14 Cover Artist: Nick Cardy Nick Cardy is one of the great comic book artists of the 60’s and 70’s. His work of the Teen Titans is phenomenal, also check out his run on Aquaman.
Published between 1981 and 1993 these over-sized 8.5×11 graphic novels printed on slick paper were either company-owned or author-owned titles. Most were stand alone stories where others had been spring boards for new characters and then received their own ongoing titles, and not necessarily as Marvel comics. The first Marvel Graphic Novel I bought was…
Thor #337 Cover Artist: Walt Simonson I love covers that are interactive and Simonson’s run on Thor is fantastic!
Doc Stearn…Mr. Monster #2 Cover Artist – Dave Stevens Dave Stevens, the creator of the Rocketeer, fantastic cover for Mr. Monster paying homage to the Our Gang movie serials of the 1920s-40s. Oh, and Michael T. Gilbert’s Mr. Monster is a pretty damned good comic also.

Sgt. Rock #350 Cover Artist – Joe Kubert I could have chose numerous Joe Kubert covers. I like this one.
