I see all these comic blogger memes, but never get in on the action. But since it's appeared on Rampage!!! and Precocious Curmudgeon, I suppose I should try to get in on the ground floor. So without further ado (and in no particular order), here's my ...
|1) Grant Morrison's JLA|
This, for me, is the definitive superhero comic. It has character, big ideas, action and madness. Morrison seemed an odd choice at the time, but he delivered on my all-time favorite comic run. His New X-Men almost makes the list, but I think I should limit myself to one dose of Morrison superhero goodness.
Can I get shipwrecked on that desert island after the Absolute Edition comes out? Not only is this a deep story that benefits from re-reading, but I can get some nice raft-building instructions.
|3) Scott Pilgrim|
I re-read both volumes as soon as I finished them, and could keep re-reading them again and again. Just don't shipwreck me until Volume 3 comes out.
I have only read through this once. I think I could probably reread it again and again. And there are so many different types of stories, I could pick various issues to match my mood.
I've read the whole series a few times in the past couple of months, and could probably keep re-reading it. There's a lot there to chew on, and I could just stare at some of Cassasy's pages for hours.
