One of my favorite 90' books was Warren Ellis' run on Hellstorm. Also, the Maxx, arguably the greatest comic series ever, was in the 90's.

That Alpha Flight series was utter tripe.

Ka-Zar was cool though, I remember all the hype when it came out. Still got the first two issues I think, it was cancelled too soon.

WHAT?

It was the first time since the first 24 issues that I cared about these characters. AND GREAT NEW ALPHANS.

AND IT WAS ALL GREAT.

Of your list, I personally enjoyed Waid/Garney on Cap, Busiek/Chen on Iron Man (as short as their run together was), Loeb/Pacheco on FF (Loeb didn't do much, Pacheco was pretty much the showrunner then), Jimenez on WW (the best run that series has had since Potter/Wein/Perez), Morrison/Porter on JLA (some great issues there) and Ordway on Power of Shazam. I also enjoyed Jurgens and Ordway on Superman during this time, as well as Alan Grant and Norm Breyfogle on Batman.

Chase, by Dan Curtis Johnson and J.H. Williams III

I deserved to be flogged for forgetting Starman.

Chase was a sleeper hit that should have had a longer run.

I thought Marvel's Darkhawk and Sleepwalker were really good books. I also loved the New Warriors. Better then whats passing for the NW at Marvel nowadays.

Morbuis the Living Vampire, until they seem to stop caring about the series and let it collapse.

Nomad, who seemed to have gotten the same treatment in the end.

Deathlok

Sandman Mystery Theatre

X-Force had a moment of great stories in the late 90's.

Deadpool

A non-adamantium Wolverine on a journey while recovering from having it ripped out was good.

Dan Jurgens kicking out the jams on Supes and the JLA
Clairemont and Lee on X-men (oh yes its tight jackets and Xavier shouting "magnus" ever ten seconds)
Legends.
Panic in the Sky...Braniaic turns into Ming, Superman reunites the JLA.
Green Lantern; Emerald Dawn1-2 and End of the road.
Mutant X. I like the character of Havok. but if I re-read it now it'd suck (probably)
Marvels What the! Milk and Cookies!!!!
Warrior....Cos its so stupid.
Booster Gold...My Jurgens soft spot again
Death of Superman.....World without and regin of the Supermen. Fucking totally cool...as was (and I know I'll get shot for this)....
Maximum Carnage But as a kid in England getting is reprinted it was seriously cool to see Spiderman team up with Venom, Captian America, Powerfist and Dethlok to defeat Carnage and his cronies.
Oh and Marvel UK's excellent Overkill...and where would we be without that? Its the comic that brought us Killpower and Motormouth

Think I have almost every run you guys mentioned. In fact just pulled Power of Shazam, reread Azteck Millar's run, Shockrockets, Cap America by Waid and Garney, and Cable by Casey/ Ladronn from my long boxes and reread. 25 years straight of comic collecting has left me with a few back issues. Then had to pull Maximum Carnage for my 25 year old brother, it's his favorite. Took me forever, forgot about how many Spidey books there were!!! Love the 90's!! It's my hobby though, helps me relax, kinda like stamps or baseball cards for some.

I loved Nomad, must underrated book of its time!!

Has anyone done anything w Killpower in this century?

Most of us...at some point have said that the 30's,40's,50's,60's,70's,80's,90's and the current decade have all sucked for comics. :banana: mainly because we're idiots who moan.

I hope and dream that Killpower does a crossover with Wolverine...so he can cut that gibbon tail off. I very much doubt that anyone has even thought about the big red spazz. Much less plans to do anything with him.

probably because too many fail to think before blasting a particular era. each decade laid the ground work for the next.

I remember digging the Death's Head mini, where it had the alternate future where Spider-Man, Daredevil, Punisher, and Captain America were freedom fighters, and Mr. Fantastic had been melted down and existed inside a big glass bubble.

Indeed Mark.
When they fight the original death's head's body because it became corrupted and ovethrew the world. Daredevil had a beard and was best friends with a re-formed Rino. And yes, Reed was play dough. Classic story. Wolverine lost a claw on Death's Head 2's metal arm, beacuse he's 10000 times more bad ass than any short canadian could ever hope to be. And they all got killed and we laughed. Yeah man the 90's ruled. Where's my gatefold?

F'n A.

New Warriors. Duh.

One of my fav runs ever. Why the hell did they not let Nicieza write this newest relaunch?

His 75 issue run was great sales wise.

All subsequent relaunches have been failures sales wise and critically panned in most cases.

Spiderman 2099 was a pretty good series. It was Batman beyond before Batman beyond.

spiderman 2099 had rollerblades in his "booties"
and the future asgardians sucked ass. Although Doom 2099 ruled. as Doom does.

who said the 90's had nothing but crap? :huh:

It seems to be an extrapolation on what many would probably agree is the fact that a lot of bad stuff was produced in the 90s and although it may not be any worse than at any other time, some of the trends were lousy.

Plus the market almost went into the crapper.

All great series guys. My affinity for some of those series are merely because I started reading comics back in the early 90s - what fun! One series that will always hold my heart is the Generation X title. Bachalo's stuff was gorgeous, and I loved seeing his transition from the stiffer, though prettier, style he had on the Death series to his more fluid, fun style on this title. The characters were fun and really worked well together. l loved the concept of a team being led by a former villain (White Queen) and a second-tier, though veteran, leader in Banshee. The stories were knee deep in the magical as well as the superhero, and were always fresh for me.

I think the 90s and the current decade are two of the worse decades for quality comics. That doesn't mean there wasn't quality back then or now, but it's pretty light on the ground.

I'd say that, as a whole, comics have rarely been better than they are this decade.
