    1. I’d say DC, but I still love Marvel

    2. For DC, Batman. For Marvel, Spider-Man. I don’t read Image so I’ll just say Spawn cause he looks cool.

    3. For Batman, Court of Owls, Black Mirror, Death in the Family, and obviously DKR. If you want something recent, Batman Universe is really good. For Spider-Man, JMS’s run, early Dikto-Lee, Ultimate Spider-Man, and, recently, Spider-Man: Life Story.

    4. Civil War

    5. Depends of the character, but Geoff Johns, Hickman, Scott Snyder, Chris Claremont, Denny O’Neil, etc.

    That’s so rad, man! I missed meeting him the only time he has come here. Did you get a sketch or something?

    Hi! I’m new here, figured I’d introduce myself here. Nice to meet you all!

    1. Do you prefer Marvel, DC, Image, or another indie publisher? Used to buy Marvel, now I’m open to recommendations as Marvel has wrecked itself. I’ve grabbed several Indiegogo campaigns as well (mainly from Ya Boi Zack, particularly Jawbreakers).

    3. Favorite story arc or reading recommendations of the above characters for someone wanting to jump in? I very much liked Frank Miller’s take on Wolverine. Elektra Lives Again is also a recommendation hands down. Claremont’s Days of Future Past  and Morrison’s New X-men are some of my favorite runs from X-men.

    4. What was your first comic book? New X-Men, that I brought because of the beautiful Jean Grey cover (ironically, it was drawn by EVS).

    5. Favorite comic book writer(s)? Chris Claremont, Frank Miller. And Ya Boi Zack.

    Ky Kiske fan! Good man! EVS’ work in NEw X-Men was amazing. I enjoyed the linework more than the story, I think. Phil Jimenez was legendary as well in that run.
