I was talking to a customer today and out of the blue I remembered a comic I used to love:

Quantum and Woody

Man, I miss that book (along with books like Static, Icon and Hardware).

What do you miss?

X-Statix. Although that was kind of complete the way it was done.

Hmmmm, I never really got into this line from DC...I'm not sure what I miss, I really liked some of the valiant stuff...

I miss the pre-movie era feel to comics, when it seemd to belong to me. Now spider man belongs to the world, when I was a kid, I was the only kid that I knew that read Web of Spider man, or any spider man. I never felt like a geek, but it did make me feel like that world belonged to me and me alone. now everyone thinks they know everything just cause they have seen the movies, like it my fave heroes didn't exist until there was a movie...

Definately miss WARLOCK...but all the Annilation stuff is kinda making him obsolete isn't it? I don't read that so...

Man, fuck that. I don`t really know anything about Annihiliaton, but I do know that the Marvel U needs the Infinity Watch.

Actually, come to think of it, a lot of that Cosmic Powers stuff wasn`t THAT good, but it was fun.

They've been in every issue of his new Madman book. I was missing the hell out of Madman...Now all is right with the universe. Allred's Artwork has hit a real peak. Loving the new book.


I'm going to say it. I miss Sleepwalker. It had potential.

Ah, dude, you ain't alone!

It was goofy shit, to be sure. But I loved that stuff. I'm also a geek for Sal Buscema's artwork, so that helped.

Now that I think about it, isn't Bendis' 'Secret Invasion' thing a bit of a rip on the whole Dire Wraiths? They had blended into our society and nobody knew it.

There may be a snicker or two here from the Marvel/DC crowd, but I miss Zot! That book was ahead of its time and maybe a bit overrated during its b/w relaunch in the 80s, but those 36-odd issues would make a hell of an Omnibus collection.

I also loved the old Marvel Star Wars. Most were a mile off from the "feel" of Star Wars, but the run between Empire and Jedi were really out there.

It was my Rom, I suppose. :har:

I love Zot! and recently purchased the entire run from my local comic book store. HarperCollins will be publishing the complete black and white issues of Zot! (11-36) in one volume in July 2008 followed by a limited, signed collector's edition in November 2008.

Scion from CrossGen and Masters of the Universe from MVCreations


SCION. I loved Scion. I liked Sigil first, but when Ben and Ray Lai left I dropped it. A host of Cross-gen titles delivered some great artist, Steve McNiven and the guy that did Scion, totally lost his name... he did Young Avengers..

Oh man, I totally forgot about these. LOVED those comics. I was actually more a fan of the comparetively "out there" Caspar and Wendy books... I think even Spooky had his own book at one time, didn´t he?

I´m glad you mentioned Harvey, I really had completely forgotten about them. A formative part of my comics childhood second only to Archie.

newUniversal: It died a very early death.

Planetary: Supposedly there's one more double sized issue before it's all done but it could be a while before we see it then... then it's really all over.

Global Frequency: A great concept that should go beyond it's 12 issue run.

Heckler and Vext: Two very quirky little Keith Giffen comics from DC

Orion: Walt Simonson had three more years worth of stories to tell when the book was canceled.

Monkeyman and O'Brien: Was just a fun book by a brilliant artist.

Queen & Country: On hiatus for the next year or so.

Gotham Central: NYPD Blue/Homicide/Law & Order all in one and set in Gotham.

Seconded.

Sadly, Rom is not an official marvel property (I think it was a spin off of Micronauts and is owned by the same person/company, ie not Marvel). We can't even use him for the Marvel Masterpieces 2 card set :(

Someone already said Sleepwalker, so I'll say Warlock. I think I was the only one that liked the book, though.

Alias. Marvel never should have dumbe it down into The Pulse (is it still being published?)

Gotham Central. Best Bat-book on the shelves while it was around.

The Authority (as written by Warren Ellis).

Outlaw Nation. A sprawling American epic about life and death and family. It was awesome.

Human Target. So many ways to go with this series and they didn't.


newUniversal. Could have been an amazing book if it had more time and space.

This doesn't even have a wikipedia entry.

It means villains that are actually AVENGERS villains

I dont care who the roster is, but I dont buy this B.S. that EVERY SINGLE AVENGER VILLAIN except the Wrecking Crew just doesnt want to show up because of Civil War

Grant Morrison's JLA, Roger Stern & Kurt Busiek's The Avengers, the original 80s Moon Knight series. There's probably a few more if I try to think, but those are the standouts.

a couple "me too's" Young Justice, Morrison JLA, nextwave, PAD Captain Marvel

Unmentioned: Slingers! four college age kids get their hands on replicas of costumes spider-man used while hiding his identity. Only to find the man that gave them their powers made a deal with the devil. Has Joseph Harris written anything recently?

Millar Ultimates. Ultimates 3 is Ultimates in Title Only

Crossgen's Ruse and a lot of the Speakeasy comics, They put out some kick ass books that never got to finish.

Also FC9 Genie, I found the first three issues going through my books not too long ago. Where is it KEP?

newUniversal wasn't cancelled it's doing the "season" thing Ellis just put up preview pages of the next issue in the last couple weeks.

Morrison's Authority? It was 2 issues and then it disappeared, and the 2 issues that came out were crap. Ellis and Millar MADE that title, and everyone who has tried to write it since then has wrecked it. No one seems to be able to handle this book, which is a damn shame.

I really wish Gantar The Last Nabu had run all seven issues. They really left me hanging with that one.

The art wasn't the best, but it was pleasant to look at. And the story was fantastic. I loved it.
