So I made a hypothetical comment below about "if I were to compile a list of my 20 favorite runs."
And within seconds of my fingers lifting off the keys, my brain kicked into gear, as the brain of a comic fan always does when presented with such an idea, and I decided to compile a list of my 20 favorite runs.
This list is not even remotely final or complete or even correct. (I probably have a few creators wrong.) But working off the top of my head at 2 in the morning last night, here's what I came up with.
New Warriors V1 Nicieza/Robinson
Avengers V2 Busiek/Perez
Ex Machina BKV/Harris
Y The Last Man BKV/Guerra
Ult. Spider Man Bendis/Bagley
Ult FF Ellis/Immonnen, (Ellis/Kubert?)
Animal Man Morrison/???
New X-Men Morrison/Quitely
52 Morrison, etc.
Ultimates 1&2 Millar/Hitch
Ult. Galactus Trilogy - Ellis
Marvels Busiek Ross
Birds of Prey Simone
I figured I'd post the list here in its outline/barebones/incorrect form, and do a little series of posts tracking the changes until I get to my final list. Obviously there's a lot more modern stuff in here, because I've read a lot more modern stuff.
And besides. Why the hell not? I've got a comic blog. This is what comic blogs are for.
